Here's a pic from the road, that open area used to be ~10ft tall brush.

My buddy's a broke dick, he's done what he can and feels super bad about it. He gave me the megasquirt setup out of his bimmer, so hopefully that sells. It's just a car, i have another one i'm working on at the moment, just kinda sucks that this was my daily.

My last two cars were killed by other people

I ended up with about 2.5" of lift up front and 2" in the rear. The front was adjustable, I could have gone higher, but the balljoints/tie rod ends didn't have enough articulation.

I know this is from a quite awhile but I'm thinking of getting an 80' 245 and making it so it can handle a little off road. I'm dying to see the pictures from crandandall but I can't for some reason. Can anyone tell me where I could find some? Thanks!

Looks like they are facebook-hosted images and the links got changed. Beat off if you PM him to give you a direct link to his album.

i'm sure this is an autocorrect fail, but it's still a great post.
