Hey, for some reason I couldn't reply to my own post. Said I wasn't logged in but most everwhere else I was. I know what you guys are saying about the whole "bling-bling" thing. That is what I am avoiding. Most guys at my school have the Chevy and Fords jacked up 5" or so with BF Mudds and what not but otherwise the car isn't at all suited for off-roading. The maintimance on the TLC is quite up-to-date. Recently the knuckle that holds the fluid that lubes the ball joint on the front started leaking and that cost some money just to get two seals. Repairs haven't been bad at all and for the most part I'm careful with what I do with it. Oh and by the way, SC is South Carolina for you yanks. As for the OME shocks, should I get firm or medium? Also what are some good tyres to get for say 60% on road? I was thinking along the lines of BF A/Ts or something similar. I'll get some pics the the crusher eventually. If there are any other TLC owners in SC or NC or some place around here send me an e~mail sometime. I'd like to learn more about the different trails around here. I know Tellico but that's about it. Thanks guys for your help.
