Looks clean! IMO the chrome delete will make a big improvement.

What size tires did you go with? Look a bit stretched.

You can put a 10mm spacer out back and bring the rears out more
looks great overall!

I like how they stopped at that question!

Because of the distribution of power, we can do a 12mm up front and a 15mm in the rear. Give it that aggressive stance.

Added a rear window spoiler purchased from a fellow forum member. I like it, I think it looks good with the stock dual exhaust. I'll probably remove it when I order the quad. JB Stage 1, 12mm front, and 15mm rear spacers ordered and go on in a week or so!

Looks great. Congrats!

Q: How does she handle on the H and R lowering sport springs? I am considering these and I have an x drive as well. Thanks!
