Re: lowered vs lifted...

It was a nice day so I was able to cruise out on the beach today. Granted I have been out there when I was riding at the stock height but its nice not hearing and feeling the bottom scraping in the ruts.

x2. I've been holding back on painting my wheels until I can get an idea on how long it can hold up. Or I guess I could stop being a cheap ass and buy some black wheels LOL
