The carrying capacity is the reason i probobly not gunna get mine lowered, it think XR6's have about 500kgs. But i like taking mine to the footy, backing it up to the fence and siting a few people in the back. If you sit 3 blokes on the tailgate you would be almost 300kgs. But Jeez Fordhead it looks bloody tough!

very nice, needs some 19' chrome rims and she would be sweet...

It's a 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a packet of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses. Hit it.
