I block the grill in the winter.

I removed the engine-driven radiator fan, and replaced it with an electric radiator far. That's not even on a thermostat - I just plug it in as needed, which is about twice a summer.

I wouldn't mind lowering it, but I have never done any suspension work before. That's only something I would want to tackle with an experienced friend.

I don't have any great urge to swap out the steering. Seems like a lot of work for not much gain.
