      It's a pain in the ass.
      This gives me hope. I don't plan on being quite as low as you are as well. Ever considered a skid plate for your tranny pan?

      If I had bags I know I would drive just as low, if not lower.

      Maybe I'll get around to making a skid plate eventually.

      Took the alphards off for good today and test fit the rears on the front with a 20mm spacer to see what I'll do on my next set. Still had plenty of room.

      Will probably be doing a matte white vinyl wrap in the next few weeks.

      and **** autos for making it so damn impractical to roll below 22 1/4", fluid is always seeping through the jb weld. raised it up around 23" with the winters now

      Sold the alphards last week, ordered Oracal 970RA matte white vinyl yesterday, also bought some fiberglass today to shave the washer caps and side markers. I thought the front was raised to 23" when I put the winters on but it's actually 22.5" I don't scrape anything at all at this height on the roads I normally travel. Can not wait for the vinyl to get here.

      And I bought a new camera. T2i with kit lens for now, 50mm f/1.8 coming on friday.

      Yea I got it for only $575, which I think is pretty damn cheap for it.

      but I completely forgot about the manual focus and left it in auto focus mode yesterday.
