I'm happy to bow out on that one if you decide you want to give it a shot.

My dad used to have a Ford Raptor. He got 14 mpg regardless or whether he was towing, eco-driving, or rallying it on dirt roads. So he stopped caring.

He literally drove it like he stole it 24/7. He'd go off curbs, small boulders, dropoffs almost daily.

Helps he lives in Idaho where he can get away with anything.

I love ignoring curbs. Makes getting out of parking lots a breeze.

Thanks Phil, it was great to meet you. Really excited (though a bit intimidated) by the project ahead. I think I need to buy parts to make myself feel better.

That would make getting out of parking lots much easier....

But that would make it so I'd never take it out of the parking lot

Congrats on the new shell. Love me some 10AE. Or maybe it's just the color. Anyway, best of luck on the build-up!
