    Ziebart it is then, hehe!

As for me, I'm from Baguio so there's a popular shop there called Jeff's Off road, you could check out their FB page if your not still familiar with them. I plan to have it lifted around 4 inches. They also sell quality rims, tires, and ARB bumpers. Also thinking of having leather covered seats.
    Alright, will definitely check that out. Thanks man!

    for your planned mods, there are a lot of parts available. Ang limit is, how deep can your pocket go.
    For suspension, the EMU has a good review for comfort. Try mo rin Bilstein.
    Steel bumpers w/ curves, try mo MCC rocker bar.
    Tires: if budget is not an issue try Fuel Off Road tires
    Lights: you can retrofit you head lights and no need to install LED light bars. But if you still want it for porma then marami pa rin options na pg pag pipilian.

    Alright, thanks for the tips bro. Budget is flexible, just need to make sure that whatever it is, it should be worth it. Hehe. Sakit naman pag palpak bigla. Regarding the suspension, yeah, I kind of figured but I was just hoping that there was a kit that would give both.. hehe, guess not. Would you happen to know how to get the off-white or cream paint job? My base paint is the stock polar white, if I change it to the off-white, does it mean they have to scrape off my orig paint or not?

    Im not so into the led light bars, I like the round Warn or PIAA, I still havent researched though which one is the best.

    Question.. Is this modification legal? (If your gonna use it on the road and not for car shows) Coz the "unauthorized modifications" part by the LTO isn't specific.

    i had experience.. twice.. bumped my innova's front against another vehicle. both times, the bumper, headlight, and fender damages were "considerable". i mean, the panels simply collapsed backward! had it been my previous revo, the damage might have been a simple bumper repaint..
    initially, i thought it was questionable design on the part of toyota..
    but later, i thought.. it was designed to give way!
    in retrospect, the considerable damage to the vehicle was preferable to a pedestrian breaking a legbone.. the financial cost of hospitalization alone would have easily been at least thrice the cost of the car repair..
    so i guess, LTO was thinking straight in labeling certain "bumper modifications" as un-authorized..

    You're right. Meron ngang battery sa may steering wheel. Already replaced it with new one and the buttons became more responsive. Still, I need to press them in a particular angle to get a response. I think hindi ganun kaganda ang contacts. Anyway, thanks for pointing out this battery.

    from DOTC 2014 revised administrative order 2014-01 of LTO:
    d. MOTOR VEHICLE OPERATING WITHOUT OR
    WITH DEFECTIVE/IMPROPER/UNAUTHORIZED
    ACCESSORIES, DEVICES, EQUIPMENT AND
    PARTS

    This includes bells/homs/sirens/whistles, blinkers,
    brakes, early warning device (EWD), grill/s,
    jalousies, brake (foot and hand brakes), brake
    lights/headlights/interior lights/signal lights/tail
    lights, mirrors, mufflers, metallic tires/spare tire,
    speedometer, windshield, wipers or any other
    accessory, device, equipment or part that is
    manifestly prejudicial to road safety.

    Key word there is "prejudicial to road safety". So, does your mods make the street dangerous? If not then you don't have to worry. also some legal minded offroaders said that if an enforcer ask about your mods. Tell them it's an "upgrade" rather than use the term "modification".

Nung medyo makasilip na ng way sa shoulder ng nlex, hinataw ko na si strada kahit maputik at madulas. Had to engage 4H para makadaan. Nung makatapat na sa phil arena saka lang lumuwag ang traffic thru zipper lane.. 3 hours na trffic from lawang bato..
