In honor of my 500th post, I decided I'd finally post a build thread to get some feedback and ideas.

2013 Oxford White FX4 w/3.55 gears, Lux 402A, Nav/Moonroof, Factory Remote Start, 18" Wheels

I've had difficulty picking a name, and I had a parent (my wife is a teacher) call her 'Snow White'. I'll just shorten that and call her 'Snow'. I like, because it sounds better. One of her other friends drove us to and from the airport in it and called her "Moby Dick"; but she drives a car (a Subaru - shh!).

Traded this:
25 February 2011 (3).JPG
2010 Ford Fusion 2.5L 4 Cylinder w/6 Speed Manual

Test Drive:

Ready for the Christmas Eve trek. Dogs in the back...innertube in the window to throw heat back. They stayed nice and toasty for the trip. Me, the wife, brother and sister in law plus 3 (yes 3) Labrador retrievers.

Beginning temps at about 0*F down to -38 at the lowest. Ended the trip at -36 and 15.6 MPG.

Seems pretty stable. Drove 350 miles and caught a few gusts in the beginning that didn't really feel any different than if it weren't there.

AK, did those Rigids make it up there yet, or did the UPS guy freeze to death on side of a road somewhere? Lol

Hopefully I'll be back to install the new lights and the HID upgrade in a week or two.

New HIDs. You'll have to document that well!

I will! I can't wait to see the difference, and hopefully it's as easy as they say to pull the covers.
