      CX Racing coilovers, the kind with the adjustable spring & body. The body adjusters were cut/extended ~4", so thats where the lift comes from with the springs adjusted all the way up.

      215/75r15 mud tires w/ DIY rock rings welded in.

      I did not do these modifications unfortunately, I traded some low parts for them. . .

      Good god that's just a little different than your old wagon. I bet it's satisfying being able to laugh at any and all bumps/pot holes you come across.

      How long does it take you to get to 60 tho?
      skrrrrt

      I drive thru a lot of winding mountain roads to/from work, and really got annoyed of washed out roads and having to dodge small boulders all the time. Now, I do get joy of driving over all of the things without issue. Can also get to my cabin now without having to use the truck.

      Lets not go there. I've been accelerating from a rolling stop since I started this post and I'm still not to 60 yet...

      Wow, I love it! No body mods required to fit that wheel/tire combo?

      I’d consider this, bit I need to be able to keep up with traffic...
