Reminds me of that commercial on nick at night. In high school I wanted to be popular, I was the wannabe. <- I always think why would anybody admit that 30 years later?

Let me know approximately how much everything costs you (I'm presuming your doing shocks, leafs and T-bars....skid plates maybe? Alcoa's maybe? BFG ATs maybe?), as I'm going to be doing the "FX4" thing too. I mean, all I got so far are decals on the bedsides. And yeah, I want an FX4 Edition Mazda. lol.

You'll be happier with the OHV in the long run.
