Could you link or explain?

Btw I thought the headlights were already HID? I donít think I fully understand the difference.
Retrofitsource can sell the MH1 kit with custom mounting bracket for the '14. Or, another route is Maxima black HID projectors which you can source from eBay. I got for my '10 for $60 a set. These runs D2S compared to MH1 and give you much brighter and wider output. Direct low-beam only swap in and reusing the shield.

Hankdog, correct me if I'm wrong. Is your crossbar installed a little forward or is just the angle shot.

So 3rd gen can be lifted more then 2" then ? Im thinking to add to my 2nd gen spacers 1-2cm more to those 5cm to make it 7cm or 2.7" or 6cm at least. Juct curious who said that it must be 2" and not 2.5" or similar?

OBW '01 / H4 SOHC 2.5 / 4EAT / VDC / rear LSD / LPG conversion / 2'' top strut spacers lift / BFG TA KO2 215/65 R16 /GC - 10.2''/26cm

For my gen it's not reccomended to go above 2 inches but I pushed 2.5 in the back for about 8 months with no issues. I was going to push 3 inches in the front but decided it would be easier to go with .75 lifted kings. I would love a half inch spring in the front but I have not found one yet. If the axles dont like it then I will get stock springs cause my current ones sag since they have 163k on them

You can lift as much as you want.

It just gets a lot more involved after 2"

You will have to extend brake lines, steering, etc.

but i get this idea that most people say like lift with spacers 2'' if you want more then go with subframe lift like 2'' more. but for like half inch could be enough just spacers i guess. and i looked that arms can still manage some half inch or similar without more modifications. so ill try add maybe half inch or in cm 1 cm or 2 or 1.5cm duno ill see how i will do it. i think i will add that separate half spacer to existing spacers so if i wont like it after i could go back to what i have now.
