If I had to choose one word to remove it would be cheap.
My definition of cheap is obviously not the same as theirs. That front clip has to be friggin expensive.

I have read that article before and I think that it is a monumental bad idea. I don't have a problem with people going for the look without spending the money go get the function. My main problem with the article is that it promotes the use of 3" wheel spacers. Wheel spacers in general are a bad idea as they create a weak link in the drive line and add additional stress to the stock parts. When it comes to wheel spacers, a 3" spacer is very large. 3" wheel spacers, cranked tbars, and 35" tires seem like a perfect way to grenade your front end.

X2

even though I have used spacers, I kept them as small as I could and made sure they were hubcentric, and I still had to have my camber re-adjusted every few months.

Yep. Though I'm also not crazy about looks but not function.
