Plans you ask....

1. Get to a good running condition.
2. Remove all body moldings
3. RC 3inch Lift.
3. 31s on some black rims.
4. Trim fenders.
5. Roof rack. (most likely homemade)
6. Bumper (homemade) and winch.

thats all i can think of at the moment. just concerned about getting it road worthy right now.
