Here you go, a visual of the '04 X-5 w/ a 24" rear wheel. BB height = 13 & 7/16 inches, with a 2.7 Mobster up front and a 2.5 Nevegal in back. That's a Z150 I slapped on up front. Note that the frame has the 6 inch rockers but just a 2-inch stroke shock, for 5.3 inches of travel and a slightly higher BB than stock. Forgive the stripped down, make-do nature of the photo, but the wife didn't get home with the camera until late yesterday and I didn't want to wait that long before moving all the parts over to the PrestonFR. Hope that helps ya,
- Joe

Looks like it says Impala on the emblem.

And did you really swap out the Ventana for a Transition? :confused:

Yep, '65 Impala SS. Been in the family since new, and it's the car I learned to drive in. It's got a big back seat.... And yes, I swapped out my X-5 for an '08 PrestonFR. I'll just say that I've become disenchanted and leave it at that.
