    You're an ambitious mf'er today. I helped my buddy delete the EGR on his 1MZ-FE swapped MR2 this morning and that's all I've got planned for today. Maybe I'll give myself a haircut if I'm motivated. Supposedly a couple packages are coming today, but I doubt it based on lack of tracking updates.

    Post up some pictures of the flaps when you get them installed. I passed 20k on my WRX today.


    Yeah. I have the Smittybilt version of that. I haven't been out and actually used it yet, but it seems to be good quality. It's a good deal at half the price of the Factor 55.

    It's a work in progress. See my build thread.
    Not a major mod, but got my high lift jack (and oversized base from @Mobtown Offroad) mounted today...

    Overall they fit ok. The front design isnt great, but should hold. They are not rigid, which i like. Being low to the ground they could catch on debris and i was worried they would break. They have small amount of outward and inward aligning. Tip: take tires off to install. I can see how it would be a nightmare installing with them on.

    Looks good. I'm not sure I can get behind how they stick out though. To me it just doesn't look right. I think it would look better if they took them up higher and had it blend into the wheel arch instead of cutting over abruptly.

    Hey fellas, looking for some advice here. A friend of mine has a 2015 with an OME 3inch lift, he is running 285/70/17, with LR UCA's. He had an alignment done and had no issues clearing the 285's. He changed his lift and uppers for a brief period and didnt like how it rode so he went back to the OME 3 inch setup with LR UCA's and has had multiple alignments done and is still getting rubbing. Today he was at the alignment shop from 1:30 to 4:30 and they turned the adjustment on the uppers to the +1 setting and then tweaked the lowers. His numbers ended up caster 5 , toe 0 , camber 0. Everything looked good but once going down the road it started rubbing again. Any suggestions?

    Where is the rubbing? Probably just needs a CMC or some trimming.

    Already has the CMC done and has already trimmed some too. The weird part is he was already running this exact setup and had no rubbing now he has rubbing.

    Nah, but I researched my family heritage about 7years ago and learned that my great grandfather was the hall porter at the lodge in Dublin, Ireland in the early 1900's. He, my great grandmother, and their little boy (my grandfather) actually lived in the basement of the lodge.
    Took my mother to Dublin soon thereafter to show her where her father lived as a young lad. We went to the lodge, and, after telling them about our ancestry, they welcomed us inside, let us speak with the archivist, and gave us the grand tour of the temple(AMAZING)The archivist researched further, confirmed our original research, and told us that the lodge also funded he and his family's immigration to the U.S.
    I will tell you that I've long had an interest in the Freemason "mystique" and history. That sort of thing, along with the Knights Templar, Illuminati, etc., has always intrigued me. Never knew why, but maybe because it's in my blood.
