I had 31"x12.50 swampers before and boy did the rear pumpkin hang low now it's much better with the 35"s
33 inch tires on a 1/4 ton truck.... meh. That's way too big for a midsize, just sayin

That's like saying I half accomplished something. I've done it too. Respect to marathoners.

How do you know if someone ran a marathon?
Don't worry... They'll tell you.

Because it's fun blowing the doors off someone who thinks because they have said Camaro they have the fastest car in the world.

It's a moot point in the last say 5 years since the OEMs are making cars that are so stupid fast off the factory showroom floor. However, back in the late 90's/early 2000's when a Mustang was a mid-14 second car in the quarter throwing a Prelude motor into a stripped out hatch would get you into same ballpark. I know of a few otherwise stock appearing 90-93 Accords that were into the low 14s with just a motor swap and some good driving.

It's also a built, not bought mentality. Look at the people who bash the Baja's or the new TRD Pro going on and on about how you could buy an SR5 and end up with a better truck. Sometimes it's just fun to buy something that isn't a powerhouse in stock form and make it something crazy.

My old 1990 Accord was one of the slowest things around in a straight line but with an adjustable suspension, chassis stiffening bars and wide sticky tires it was an absolute blast in the corners and could hang with cars making a lot more power. Sometimes it's just more fun driving a slow car fast than a fast car slow. I've got something like an estimated 360-380 crank HP in my STi and it's almost too fast to enjoy around town.

X2. I've got a buddy who recently started running marathons, and he is relentless about telling people about it. It's good they found something they are passionate about, but sometimes I just want to them. I think they are borderline narcissists.

Just like first class douchebags who try to find a way to fit a mountain bike and a jet ski in every activity.

That reminds me of this one time I ran a marathon after downhill biking Mt. Everest only to jet ski in Hawaii. Oh I also ran a marathon there too...

No I'm kidding.. but seriously though, if you ran one... good for you. But you can stop bringing it up now... didn't family guy do a bit about marathon runners? If not, there's always this...

Yup accords are very underestimated that's why I took my 1990 accord up a notch and boy it was fun!

For me, buying a Baja was purely financial decision. SR5 vs TRD, was no brainer - i like creature comforts. I am done buying cars every 3 years. I plan on keeping the truck for a very long time. Buying a Baja gives me more capable truck from the get go. 100% OEM warranty was a big factor. Yes, it is more expensive, but its all a part of a 6 year loan at a little over 2%. And still, compared to my previous cars, my loan payment is rather small. This saves me from having to drop $2,000+ on suspension/wheels after buying a truck and having to put it on a credit card with a much hire rate. Once the OEM warranty is over, I will go crazy, but for now I enjoy a peace of mind.

Sounds like other financial issues if you're putting mods on credit. The Baja is nice though.

I like bajas and do understand the ease of the warranty, but warranty only covers normal wear and tear....if you go off roading and break something they may claim abuse.

as for buying mods, you would not have to buy them all at once.

Aw man, this thread messed up my plans for the 295/30-21 summer performance tires I was thinking of putting on my TRD OR. If anybody is interested, I'm slamming it down 8" this next weekend and replacing the upper control arms to make sure I have -15° camber on the front tires. Not sure what I'm going to do about the back leaf springs...I have the 3 leaf pack. In order to get the drop I want, I think I need to take two of those out.

It's gonna be so sick.
