    I am hopefully getting some real tires, BFG AT 285's. After getting a great deal on some Michelins early this year off Ebay, I have come to conclusion I prefer BFG ATs.

    Will heavy duty Torsion bars add lift to the front of a non lifted 100? I would like to get front of my '99 up so it looks as high as the rear.

    They can if you want them to or you can set them at stock height. It is all controlled by how you index the t-bar when installing. If you index it the same as the stock t-bar, you won't get any lift unless you torque down the adjustment bolt.

    If you have a stock 100 and want to adjust the front to make it level, you can do this without adding new t-bars. Just crank the adjustment bolt to increase height of the stock t-bar. If you need more help you can look at the write up in the FAQ thread about installing an OME suspension for more info.

    My wife told me to stop modifying the 100 and modify the 60 instead.

    I told her I wanted to keep the 60 close to stock...

    I shamefully say that my 100 will be getting a touch up paint job. :(

    If thats possible.

    I scraped the side of a fuel trailer. It's not too bad, but there are some significant indentations and really deep scratches all the way to the bone.

    Oh yeah, ARB(front), Slee (rear) bumpers and some sliders. The way it's going, I may need to do a full exo-skeleton!!!
