    Basicly factory. I would LIKE to to lower my F-350 4wd PSD Ex cab. Lifting stuff into bed feels like lifting same stuff over box side of my 96. (Ok it's not). I would guess 8" higher at least.
    For trailers. They need to be adjusted, or live with tilt floor.
    Thing is front to lower is $$$. The rear easy but....

    Wish I could get my brother to fix his Dart up. He bought it in high school when it was a low mileage (49k miles) all original GT. Drove it a few years, then parked it in the parent's pasture and has let it sit the last 20 years. Won't sell it or restore it. It's sad.

    That's really sad. Those were such neat cars and pretty darn quick with any if the V8's.

    I had an 11 hatch myself, really miss that car sometimes. Pretty much did everything I need it to do. I had a set of General Grabber snow tires for the winter, did pretty well in the corners.

    Only got rid of it cause I missed having a pickup, that and I think the firewall was cracked.

    2015 Taco here, tint, tires and floor mats are as far as I'm going. Maybe a small lift down the road, a locker, an exhaust, but that'll come once it's paid for.

    Sadly it's probably gone underneath from rust , ground moisture is bad on cars

    That makes the decision to back half the frame easier, since you're already cutting out the floor pan and replacing everything south of it.

    Do they make a supercharger setup for Harleys?

    "Is there aftermarket support for Harleys?"
    Centrifugal, roots, and turbo kits out there.

    Take the seat covering off the Harley. Place it over the seat cushioning of a:

    BMW, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Honda, Yamaha, Ducati, Aprilla

    Then you should have a bike that performs well.

    Best mod you can make to Harley to make it actually perform well.

    I like to upgrade breathing on both ends - cold air intake and cat back exhaust - helps almost any vehicle a ton. Sound is better too.

    Just bought a new to me G37 that is full of promise.

    In Japan they have many styles of modification. As a car guy even if it's not my style I'm not going to come down on anyone.

    Can I play?

    Got a new car and went out and bought one of those pine tree air fresheners. JK

    My problem is, if it's an older car I don't want to dump money into it.

    If it's a newer car I don't want to screw it up.

    I was going to do this to my tundra, but it would add another 300+#'s and worsen my already crappy gas mileage. I was looking for flat coyote brown.

    Back half wouldn't fix all the rust in the unibody , front frame and torsion bars mounted in it.

    Mopars are made different than other cars
