    I was mildly inspired with the camel toe.. I mean trophy thread. I got to thinking about how to make a K5 into somthing simmilar to a defender, in ability not looks. One means of getting more flex while still looking stock would be to get 2-2.5" lift springs (soft like BDS) and use a lowering shackle for a 2" drop with, net no lift more flex. Also disconnect to sway bar and soft shocks. A slightly longer greaseable front shackle would help with flex, but what else could be done to the front? 33x10.5's tire would keep it pretty much stock in terms of no lift to fit, maybe some trimming. What do you think?
