    Did you convert to five lug? I was asking someone once how to get a cheap 4 lug disc setup and they suggested the TC brakes as well... I was a little confused since I thought it was only 5 lug...

    5 lug swap is a MUST get some decent brakes on there so you can actually stop

    i think the best mods are the ones you cant see, or see right away. not a fan of body work modifications in general.
