      I had K-sports on the car, and couldnt even drive down gravel roads for rock climbing so I decided to go the other direction with it. The car is lifted 1in from stock. I made strut spacers for the front and used some jeep spring spacers in the back. For the time being I have the stock steelies with 215/70/15 tires. So in total the car is lifted 6 inches from when I had coilovers.

      I am working on a light bar/brush guard looking thing that I am mounting 4 hella 500 lights to. Those are the pictures coming later.

      Future plans are making fender flares and some steelies with less offset and wider.

      Waiting for plastic dip to dry on the light bar.

      Im having trouble finding where there is a hole in the firewall to get the wiring through. Any help would be appreciated.

      That is actually on the list. We have a cnc table at work that I was going to try to cut some VW emblems in them.

      Light bar mounted. Still trying to figure out the wiring. To bad its not like my old truck. Rubber grommet right by the gas pedal. haha.

      Looks pointless to me to have those lights on the front, but it is your car. I would probably laugh as well if I saw this rolling.

      And where do you put fog lights on your car? I guess all those rally guys are doing it wrong as well.

      Looks sweet. What kind of gas mileage are you getting with all that stuff on it now though?

      I just finished all the wiring. And its dark now. so I will take some better pictures tomorrow.

      vortexn - These are the beefiest tires I could find that would fit at the moment. They are yokohama geolanders. 27 is the biggest diameter tire that will fit. not to many off road tires that small.
