I have had my Cruiser for about 4 months now and love it. Its a 2003 Dream Cruiser II #1350 that I got a deal on at least in IMHO I have been reading the post here for a while and through it was time to pop in and say hello!
I have a couple of mods on it nothing to much. Crome grill overlay, fuel cap, and removed the silencers and a K&N. Oh yea and a deflector for the sun roof. [8)]

Welcome to the forum. Hope you get involved by posting questions, answers, and pictures. (we all like pictures [|)])

BTW, which grille overlay did you buy? Do you have a link to the site? How about a pic?

Thanks

I got the overlay on Ebay and off hand I don`t remember who the seller was. I do have a question. Were do you attach a floor jack when lifting the front of the car? I know were to attach the jackstands but the sub frame is way back of the engine and I was not sure how to go about it. [xx(]

RE: JACKING. Do a search and you will find a huge discussion on this subject. In my opinion, this is one of the hardest cars to jack up with a floor jack. I prefer Rhino ramps or even the stock jack to a floor jack. The rear is easy to jack up, it's the front that is a bear (esp. if lowered like mine).

Do the search and see what you find.

If you have trouble getting a floor jack under the front, use a regular jack at one of DC's locations to raise it high enough to get a floor jack under. If you're going very high, a good floor jack is safer than the stock one. And... ALWAYS USE JACK STANDS.

WELCOME! My GT is lowered so I have to do the same thing 2sb suggested. Factory jack and then floor jack. Let us know what else you do to your GT. [8)]
