haha i was just about to make the same post.... i live about 20min on a good day from downtown (where i go to school) and the traffic is mildly dangerous (terrible drivers)... combine terrible drivers, slippery street, potholes that can swallow your whole tire (no exaggeration), that brings my commute to 1hr and 15min in this type of weather :doh: ... and just two days ago the temp dropped like 20 degrees within an hour... when i was driving my windows fogged up what seemed to be almost instantly and i had to pull over now that was scary...

though i must admit that i like driving in this weather but i dont like driving throught the city in this weather... maybe i would enjoy it alot more if i had my white 165 done so i can rip around and have some fun...

but i agree im already sick of this weather... enough is enough...

chicago hates you, too.

i was on my way home last friday. i've had to change the way i take to work three times now because the roads are getting so torn up. i picked a new route that morning, and was following it back that evening. went over a bridge, and the expansion joint going onto the bridge was so jacked that it bent three of my wheels and jacked my alignment something fierce.
GAH!

i just got an estimate from the alignment shop for fixing this: $2700

that's wheels, tires, arms, tie rods, a kitchen sink, a bumper, an oil pan

yeah

my cousin recently just got a 08 tacoma base model and its suprisingly pretty nice, id have to get the trd 4dr or extended if i were to get one... my uncle just got an "new" 07 tundra and those things are badass also... i really liked that guys xrunner, man im bad with names but i always remember a face, the one a taco bell that night... he said it can keep up with a lightning! but i guess you cant beat the mpg, reliability, space of the civic, just get some "less baller wheels" so they dont cost that much to replace!

john, he's got the SC on it now

i'm heading north, i think, tomorrow. i'll try to remember to grab your bracket and keep it in my car in case.

i've got some shitty 14x6s on it now w/ cooper cobras

i'm buying control arms and tie rods and then getting an alignment done and hoping that'll do it.
