I was gone all weekend but I did snap a couple before it started to ice over last night. More daylights pics later.

I still have a little trimming and electrical work to do before it's ready to hit the road.

Nice rig, you oil pan looks a little exposed there, worried about that?
perhaps a hard core skid plate/bashing plate would fix that :headbang:

A little exposed is definitely an understatement. :grin: Not sure what I'm going to do to fix that problem yet.

Skidplate time! Just be careful where you drive until then I'm waiting for my bumpers to get done and then I'll get a skid plate to cover that. Lookin good though, what size/make are they?

Nice wagon, those swampers look sweet on there. As posted before what size did you go with and what size lift did you go with 3"? looking good, definately need some protection up front there.

The wheels and 3" lift kit came from the AA Group Buys.
The tires are Super Swamper TSL Radials 215/85/15

The biggest problem I'm having with a skid plate is making something that'll reach that custom bumper. :-\

Looks hot, I love that bumper! Are those places for a flat tow bar on it??? That Rocks!

side note: looks like you have a front camber issue (Like the same exact problem I have on Project Cheap)? Or has the suspension not settled yet?

Hey are skid plates are done if you want to join the group buy for them. I am going to post pictures of us jacking the car up with skid plate. The pictures wont be up for about ten days so I am extending the group buy out. Also must say the car looks great! I like the lift and the wheels:brow: What size are those tires.

looks awesome!!

DR...it does have some camber, but that's pretty close to stock, mine and morgan's (former) BYB lifted wagon both look like that

also, it looks like he's probably got front adjustable struts cranked up too...look at those control arms!!

Yeah, the front struts are cranked almost all the way up. The camber issue isn't that bad at all compared to my other lifted rig.

Shady, looking forward to pics of your latest skidplate revision. If my consulting check shows up on time, I might be able to get on board with the group buy.
