I could just post my truck. The only data I can find indicates .52, and I think that was for a 2wd.

Those are some of the nicest wheels I've seen on a Prius. And it's got the side window visors.

The car sits level, but the 'barge-tail' has an incorrect departure angle.

Fit and finish are importantó compare this to the Hulk Camino rat rod's open-top front fenders. Instead of rusty metal you get an horizontal sunken antenna*:



This is from a Samuel Cernuto playlist:

649 videos, mostly of stuff I've never seen before.


*Done properly, the antenna would be pull-to-open for the suicide doors.
