Also it may protect a bit if someone bumps me trying to parallel park.

Also, I like to just go explore stuff. Every so often I will just drove down I-90 and take some random exit into the mountains and go down random roads. Nothing crazy like rallying random back roads, just checking stuff out. That's where the extra light comes in. I always think big foot is gonna pop out and if he does I wanna see him from far away so I can haul ass in reverse cuz he's a scary mofo.


haha best response ever man :ba nana:

i looked at light bars for like 2 hours.... it might be hard bc i got the jdm bumper beam.... ughh i really liked the look and having some extra light at a push of my finger tips sounded nice.... looked up some diy also... and if anything that might be the best route for me bc of my fmic.... but its very involved to create one that doesnt bounce around and rattle from parts u get at home depot...
