Tires always come second with a lift. You don't want to buy tires first then regret it after the lift if they are not the look you're going for.

For the most part, police are great people who are just doing their job.

I got pulled over recently. The cop that pulled me over was one of the biggest asswipes I've ever met. He pulled me over because one of my headlight projector bulbs went out during the day. Could've swore he watched it go out. He kept interrupting and would not let me speak, he was talking in a very irate and unnecessarily aggressive voice (he also cursed a few times), he snatched my license and registration from my hand and when he was lecturing me for a burned out headlight, he put his finger right up in my face etc. I was pulling out my registration and hadn't rolled down my window yet and he had already walked up to the truck. As I was digging for the registration card he slammed on my window with his baton thing and damn near broke the window. He kept telling me he'd arrest me and charge me for resisting arrest because I was trying to tell the cop that the bulb had just burned out. I decided to go and fight the ticket because there was no way I could've known my headlight was out until night time. Any competent officer would pull me over to let me know that my headlight was out.

When I got to court, he actually apologized for his aggressive behaviour and he said he wasn't feeling emotionally stable that day. I could've had him charged for inflicting emotional distress, but didn't want to go through the legal crap. Ticket got thrown out. I imagined that cop in his "emotional state" being in a situation that day where he would seriously need to use his level-headed judgement and made the wrong decision. Who knows.

Wha an A-hole. Sounds like he apologized to save himself. I've only had good experiences with cops. One time me and my buddy's were hanging out in a mall parking lot at around 10 pm at night. We were waiting on everyone else as that was our meet up spot. Cops came and said they got a call that a group of kids were doing burnouts and looked suspicious. We just said no we're waiting on some friends to meet up. The cop was pretty funny, he talked to us for a few mins and was making fun of my buddy's astro van.

I got pulled over once and that was because my catalytic converter went bad and it smelled like rotten eggs. He just pulled me over to let me know and was really nice about it. When I lived with my parents they had this one sketchy tenant in the basement. Cops were always looking for him. They were nice and polite every time they came to my door. One tuing I appreciated was that most of the time, the cop would identify his name and badge number before even asking a question.

Cops have a tough, thankless job. I have a few friends that are cops and I hear all kinds of stories from them.

First thing you should've done was open your windows and keep your hands on top of the steering wheel (at least in plain view), not reach in the center console or glove box. They don't know that you're looking for your paperwork. They might think you're reaching for a weapon. Remember, they don't know you and they mostly deal with criminals so it's a very valid concern for them. When they ask for your license and reg, tell them you need to get it from the glove box or center console. You'll be surprised how much that will ease the tension for the cop.

I was at canadian tire today and came across resonator delete pipes. I picked up an 18" pipe and 2 clamps. Going to delete the resonator tonight. Can't wait! Supplies cost $15.
