    She's going under the wrench today. Upgrade suspension a little, slight lift, new wheels/tires. I also added the roof rack crossbars and blacked out our roof rack side rails.

    Just Bilstein shocks and struts and Icon coil springs. nothing too major. didnt like the spongy ride plus we tow our boat with it so i like the extra lift/firmness to keep it from sagging.

    yeah, this is the 1st time we've gone this deep with upgrading a ride so i was sweating it a little bit. you just never know for sure until you see it.

    crazy part is, our mpg seems to be climbing and the ride, oh my is it greatly improved. i have been shocked by the mpg though. a 60 mile trip over the weekend was up to 20.9mph and we have not sniffed that before now. had a 2016 xp that NEVER got close to 20.
