    I think the next modification was the 2.25" Rocky Road Lift:



    The original lifts came with the poly spacers but do to a high number of failures they have been replaced with metal spacers.

    I drove out to Orange County, California and picked up two additional cross bars for my roof and installed the Yakima Mega Warrior Rack with extension:

    This was WITHOUT the extension:



    And with it:





    In These pictures you can see the Window Visors have been installed as well.

    I added the billet thresh-hold tags:





    The headliner is hanging and the wires you see are when I installed the OEM VES system (purchased the player & monitor on eBay and then the harness and bracket at the dealer)
