Banana, the only issue is that your dad's wheels are 15" and mine are 17". Though, those chrome OEM rims on his car look bigger than mine...lol, black rims always look smaller. Many more updates in the next two weekends. Tach install in the very near future, along with some tasteful courtesy lights, because Lishy likes to see what's on the floor at night. (Blonde girls are weird)

Yeah. I told my buddy at the rim shop that we were dropping it at least 1.5" and he suggested that we put 205/40's on it. There's hardly any sidewall, but they grip really well. They're Z-rated Dilente Thunder tires. Texan Idiot pointed me towards an autoX event in Houston on June 11...I'm tempted to give it a go.

Looking great with the new rims and tires alone bro!! That's bout the same style i'll be getting for mine in a couple months or so I got the same black bezel head lights on mine at the moment - looks more better with lights bulbs in it I saw get some HID halogen kit (super whites) for it too dude! If you got bout an hour to kill, just type "2003 dodge neon" in browser on Ebay and you can scroll and browse all those deals on cool item for your ride bro I've got a couple things left to get from there yet. Can't wait to see it when you install the headlights and stuff!

Picture and update bump:

Soo...this weekend we got the black bezel headlights and turn signals installed. A very subtle touch that made the outside look significantly better. We also installed the front and rear strut tower bars and the intake. The intake that got sent came with the wrong filter and a few of the wrong parts...the filter that they sent is this big, ricey Weapon R "Dragon filter" but it works for the time being. Also, we installed some Prothane shifter bushings and were astonished at what we found. The bushings on the shifter cables in the car were in tact, but the ones we installed were much more rigid and there was still lots of slop in the shifter. We got under the hood to look at the other end of the cables and one of the bushings was missing! I'm clueless as to how the car shifted at all, the other bushing under the hood was ripped and barely hanging on. After installing the Prothanes, the shifting feels 150% better and is much smoother.
Here are some before pics of the shifter cables...notice the one on the left isn't even there!

Shifter cables at the stick...

Rear strut tower brace...

Intake with Riceriffic filter...

New headlights and smoked signals...




More to come...real soon!

Thanks. It's got a little ways to go. It should be close to completed by the end of August for one of our local car shows.

Holy **** at that gone bushing. I hate the chrysler cable shifters, the laser had them. Keep them cables lubed as time goes on, or suffer the consequences.

However, the headlights rock, subtle but nice way to tone down the tone of the car.

They're all greased up. I'm ready to rip off the front bumper and do some chopping. It needs to be repainted, anyways. Lots of bug damage on it.

Thanks Gearhead! That looks great. The springs that I'm putting on will drop it about 1.6 inches.
