Nice build. How are the Megans holding up? I was planning on springs and shocks till reading your thread. Might have to go that route.

no. not at all. my wheel setup isnt as aggressive as a lot of the big dogs here.

Hey Pete, did you have to replace all of your roof rail clips after painting them? Mine are starting to loosen and was wondering if there was a special to take the off. Thank you in advance!!!

Man, i dont know. funny i was just thinking about stripping and polishing the roof strips. Saw it on someone elses here. Been workin on the Tahoe. Might flip that and just save some money for once. Need a set of rear tires soon. Maybe a better system? Nothing fresh has really come to mind lately. Been busy though. Love your polished intake man

Not yet, mine are starting to loosen by my trunk. I'm a little hesitant to try because i'm sure those clips are like 100 bucks a piece lol. I'll keep you posted. Thanks again!!!
