Same here... truth is, I just hate to spend money!

Took the "One-Eyed Fiona" (has a damaged eye due to neonatal infection, so I named her after the Lyle Lovett song!) to the show, and she won Best Female 3 out of 4 shows. Just coming up on 10 months old, and starting to remind me of my all-time best dog.

Since I named Fiona after a witch, I named her sister after another witch Laveau isn't quite as pretty as Fiona, but overall is a good dog.

Most of us have only heard of Marie Laveau via that silly country song (co-written by Baxter Taylor and Shel Silverstein, and made famous by Bobby Bare) but she seems to have been a very interesting person!

Here's a good interview with Shel Silverstein's nephew. He wrote a lot of the fun songs we grew up with!

OK, the poster dieselperformance says there is no truck lift law.
Two points to the first poster that can tell me what the heck that is
The wind is really blowing this morning and that is saying something for me to notice it.

You've seen pickup trucks that are lifted in that they are higher then other pickup trucks. Some states have laws against modifying the suspension by lifting it. Montana does not have a law against it.

Unhappy Old Oregon......before maxline and streetcars.....

Points to the EH! Hope all is well with you!
When I first moved to Oregon, up on the coast in logging country as a young bride I would marvel at the height of the rigs. I never understood it until hubs took me up a few logging trails. I then understood the need for clearance.
My 68 beetle could easily drive under of few of them.
Have a good day

Yes and true undercarriage clearance can only be achieved by putting on larger tires, the body lift is only to provide room for the larger tires.
These folks that only do a body lift while leaving the stock tires on are foolish.
My old 85 Toyota has a 3 inch suspension lift but no body lift. It has larger tires and I use 1 1/2 inch thick wheel spacers that gave me a 3 inch increase in wheelbase width.
