Nice Fred. Mines a white '02 as well with 225000 on the original engine, clutch and turbo. Skid plate, check. Sedan sway bars, check. I just built a photography platform for the top including a ladder and a hammock mount for the trailer hitch.

Reply to Wrenches / Shop Employees, What's Your Biggest Pet Peeve? 4/29/2016 4:57 PM

Mine was mostly the other employees and the management who always wanted to set up appointments and put off simple adjustments that could be done in minuets. If it's not a bike build, why make someone wait?
