    Thanks everyone! Yeah the Mud setup is extremely fun. Every once in a while I miss the race tires and handling, but then I just go run over some Honda's and it's all good

    They are General Grabber A/T 2's in 215/65-16. It is the smallest all terrain tire on the market. Great in the snow, mud, and gravel!

    No, I have two sets of strut assembly's depending on whether I am running the summer or winter setup. The "winter setup" is my stock strut assembly's with a 1" spacer in front and 1 3/8" in the rear. For summer it is KYB AGX with Ground Control's and Group-N top hats, that are corner weighted to the car. It is really easy to just swap out the assembly's, adjust the sway bars, and throw on whichever wheels I want. I can go from one to the other in about 2 hours from start to finish.

    The nice thing about having just the 1" lift is that you can run your stock length trailing arms and you dont have to worry about your rear tires being too far forward. I did a little trimming just in case I have the sways disconnected for some fun.

    awsome, by the pics i figured you had coilovers but simply swapping the strut assembly sounds simple enough. i wish we got enough snow that i could justify an extra set of tiers but for less than 6 inches maybe twice a year

    Yeah I just moved from near Greensboro, NC to Indiana and I figured that there would be a lot more snow than there was. Kinda disappointing, but very happy because the roads up here suck!

    ^Thanks. It is a absolute blast. I never thought that I would love it this much! We got some rain yesterday so I went out to find some mud. Did some stream crossings and got a little muddy. Good times!
