I don't recall whether I'd thanked you over on Scoobytruck or not, Thacrudd, so:

THANKS! These are great links, and Scoobytruck is a great Baja resource!

Default interior pictures

Can’t thank you enough for the interior pictures. I have one dang back light out behind the clock temp gage in my 2005 Baja Turbo and would never have attempted to change the bulb without your pictures.

Wish I would have seen the tonneau cover site prior to buying my Ozz. Would've saved a couple hundred. Thanks for the links!

I love the idea of tutorials and would also love to see one on doing a swap from a non turboed automatic to a turboed version.

It would be nice to see a tutorial on custom light bars. Anyone made one up before?

I should be working on this over the next week or so.. Will be finished with hopefully some good pics and measurements before the end of the month.

I've lifted mine (twice) initially 2" back in 07, with a Scorpion body lift , and again this spring when I replaced my struts, I added the "Subtle Solutions" one inch spacers to each strut on top of the Scorpion spacers. Running General Grabbers 215/70 16's these give me more than 12" of clearance at the rocket panels, and over 10.5" at the rear differential.
