Ask, and it shall be given to you.


Photo taken March 2015 in Zion National Park.


Not pictured is the rear windshield wiper delete. The partial grill block and 45 psi in the tires are the only other mods.

I call this picture "The Clash of the Two Worlds."



Pictured is my ZX2, along with a black NNBS Chevrolet Silverado. 6" lift kit, 20x10 Moto Metal rims, 35x12.50R20 Federal Couragia M/T's, and probably stock gears (lol!). This is the "norm" for my area, and I used to be a part of it. You can say I've had a radical change

Here's my car at Bonneville Salt Flats last September without the bike rack.



Best tank on that trip was 37mpg. Average was 34mpg.
  • Electronic ignition
  • Lower on both ends
  • 165-50/15s on the front
  • front stress bar
  • cryogenically tempered brake parts
  • (one) wiper delete
  • radio/antenna delete
  • 10 gallon range extender

Here's the range extender and stress bar:


It's amazing how much the color changes between B'ville and the PNW overcast.

Not mine!



If you look closely, you will find a partial grill block

I'm struggling to find any reason at all to think that is in any way a desirable thing. Either in terms of looks or how it might drive.

I suspect the driver might have issues ?

No issues Arragonis, this is the way some trucks are around here in my part of the USA. It is mainly for looks, this is the truck game, as it is called. And I kinda desire a rig similar that... just not as a DD

Agreed, and his tires are inflated well

That LED light-bar is a nice touch, but it needs to be cantilevered out in front of the windshield so it doesn't add frontal area.

There are some reasonable use cases; mainly, logging, mining and pulling a plow. Meanwhile in other news Blue Origin had a successful first launch but failed to stick the powered landing, just like SpaceX.
