My Little XK is Growing Up

Tomorrow is install day for the Rusty's 2 inch lift, 1.5 inch Spidertrax wheel spacers, and Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor 255/75R17s.

Here's some before pics. Sorry the XK is so dirty. I took these a few days ago. I even washed her today and was going to redo the before pics but by the time I got home, it didn't seem worth it. That's life in Michigan in the winter.... you gotta take the good with the bad.

I'll post after's either tomorrow or Friday depending on how dark it is when I get home.

I like how it matches the door and shutters on the house.

Here's a couple more before shots. I'm trying to get the height of the rails front and back as well as the side shot.

Btw, if you notice something that looks a little weird on the picture taken front to back, there's a little bit of my daughter's tire sticking out from behind my XK, she is parked behind me in the picture, and she has her wheels cranked out.

That is exactly what I am planning on doing as soon as I can afford it. I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished project tomorrow. Good luck and happy wrench turning.

Now, wait a minute Drako. Last time we talked about this, you said YOU were going to bring the tow strap. What's the deal? ...Oh, I see you are bringing the pink elephant...never mind... pink elephant is enough to bring.
