I knew I recognized that storefront!

They did my lift tires etc when I lived in NC in 2010. The audio shop next door installed my nav and security system!

Sweet looking ride! What gears did you have to go to?

Sure do miss NC!

I wish the Rock Hard and the PSC sport cages were combined...PSC ties to the floor but not the windshield and the rock hard ties to the windshield and not the floow.

Another deciding factor for me was ease of install and fit/finish. The big problem with the PSC is that it is way more labor intensive to install, and most people say that it is way more "loud" in driving. Also the Rock Hard curves so you can keep your dash tweeters, where the PSC goes straight across and requires you to remove them totally.

Plus the fact that I'd already burned up two factory steering pumps and was tired of hearing that nasty wine made it a necessary upgrade. I 100% think it is awesome.
thanks for the feedback!

WesterM3 New cosmetic upgrade to rims today. I've always loved my XD Addicts but while only two years old the plastic cosmetic lug bolts had lost all factory paint and were practically bare white plastic. This was killing me so I went to Lowes and brought a small brush and metallic spray paint. I merely sprayed paint onto a newspaper and used the small brush to go over the lug nuts. I have to say it turned out awesome!

WesterM3 Great wheeling this weekend at Uwharrie! Weather was great and we hit every trail. The coilovers, anti rocks, and new hydro-ram assist steering performed awesome!
