    yeah put her in first and trucked it home at like 15 mph. smoking from the fan hitting the fan shroud and all kinds of nasty shit. turns out i landed so hard on the roof it twisted the frame and had to be totalled out.

    got my BEEFED blocks installed last weekend and my x-runner wheels and tires today. so i slap these babies on and hit the highway to go to work and they are vibrating like a SOB. im already almost late for work so i dont have a choice but to roll on them. turns out the dude who sold me the wheels neglected to tell me he removed the TPMS sensors and never rebalanced the wheels/tires. now i have a wierd "clack" sound from my front end when i press on my brakes. AWESOME. hope i didnt f**k something up. pics soon.

    Theres a place on the corner Valley View and Russel that does some great work (they did my grille installation) i have not asked them about paint yet, my best guess would be to go down through Industrial Rd. (near the strip) and look for Updated Auto, they did a whole body paint job on my dads lexus.

    definitely looks great with the hood and grille. the tire size goes well with the drop too.

    thanks man. i am happy with the wheel and tire selection. and once this front end gets paint matched i think she will look awfully sexy.
