First thing I thought of when I saw your name. Was actually going to ask if you had one.

Here's a bit more insight on a handle I acquired by mistake. Back in 1982 I was a junior in High School with a cherry 1969 Olds 442 with 38,000 orig miles. It was Saturday night and I was in a hurry to go pick up my girlfriend but I wrapped my car around a telephone pole instead! Impact was around 70mph + at the drivers door which completely snapped the pole in two. The car buckled like a banana and I was thrown out of the passenger side door because I wasn't wearing a seatbelt. Get this, I had no injuries what so ever!! When the police, fire and aid people got there they were all looking for a body and didn't believe I was in the car specially not the driver! I was the only person in the car and was totally sober. Nobody else was injured by this so I was very lucky to say the least. State Farm Insurance wasn't too happy with the huge PUD bill to babysit the pole and replace it 2 days later but oh well that what we pay our premiums for..... right! So everyone knows me by the cherry ride I trashed back in the day without so much as a scratch. Sure wish I could go back and redo that day over!!

Each year when my parents receive their State Farm renewal notice it still states to this day that i am not a covered driver under their policy!!

If it's easier, you guys can just call me Rick, lucky bastard, dumb ass or whatever ....... you pick <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

I'll probably do the 1.5" body lift but no higher after I figure out the susp lift issue. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/sleeping.gif" alt="" />

Lift still not in, been picken everyone's brain on their secrets of success before I either give it another go or throw in the towel.

May have to bag the 4" and go with the 3" and call it a day. I'm finding that I'm one of very few concerned about taking it back apart for servicing. Most have stated they have forced it together not considering how they would take it back apart if needed! Although I like to do all my own servicing I also like the option of using Schwab when I get busy or just lazy so it needs to be simple and safe as well.

I really want to say thanks to all the guys who have taken the time to respond to my many, many questions regarding this subject! You guys are truly awesome and i really appreciate every bit of info you have given me thus far <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/patriot.gif" alt="" />

Pic of my 01 Sporty with the lift and tires:

[Linked Image]

3" UpYourKia spacers ~ TJ 104's ~ 31x10.5x15 Hercules Terra Trac A/T's on Centerline rims ~ Warn manual lockers ~ Electric fan conversion.

No off-road pics yet because I still need to get a spare tire to match.

Colorado-bound this summer, Baby!


01 Convertible; Electric Fan; 3" Up Your Kia lift spacers; Tj 104's; 31x10.5x15's on Centerlines; Rear LSD.
GONE, all I have left are a few spare parts and the wheels.

Thanks! You're not seeing the other side, though. Rusted out door and dented fender. LOL
