Wat to do to the old XG. Pretty stock ute cept for extractors and 2.5 pipe and some pretty fat tires on the a***, 295/50R15. Was thinking about puttin a bonnet scoop directly above the air box and making up a shroud so everythin fits nice and tight, just to get the old girl breathing a bit better. Yes or No? Wat else can be done cheaply to improve her..... Cheers

rip out the xg dash and put in a XF ghia dash in it with the digi dash cluster, xf ghia electric windows, NA electric seats, see if u can find a XB GS bonnet mod that would look great. drop it 2 inches tint the windows as dark as u can legaly.

yeh this is my 2nd set. Went in to get 245's and the boys had a bit of a gander and thought they'd try the 295's. Fits sweet in the arches, just can't hit to big a bumps. But yes they r on standard rims. The boys struggled gettin them on there and we thought we'd have issues rollin them off the rims but they haven't budged yet. :)

Yeh the old Lightforce XGT's are pretty bright. Can't use them round town coz i keep blindin myself with the reflection off street signs. Good for annoying everyone else though! Wouldn't mind a WB, basic mods and a small 5 poster bull bar.
