Hey guys,

I just returned to Chicago from my two internships in Dubuque, IA this summer. On my last ride home I took some pictures because the scenery between Dubuque and Chicago is actually quite good. Not all corn fields, but mostly corn fields. Haha

Overall Dubuque is a very dull and uninteresting place. But I met some great people and obtained some valuable work experience before starting my senior year on Monday.

Hope you all like the quick shots I took!

Pic 1 - 3: great scenic location outside of a town called Elizabeth, IL with a population of 700 people! And just a couple of photos with my car.

Pic 4: the bridge that leads you over the Mississippi into the land of Corn and Busch light

Pic 5: neat little winding road through a forest.

Pic 6: the Mississippi River

Sounds like a Summer well spent.

We need to talk ride height, because yours is on point, and mine is not. Any chance you know the thread height yours is at? My fronts are in the same ballpark (rub like crazy right now, need to raise maybe inch and roll fenders at minimum) rears are lower than yours, but that needs to change.

Well I actually don't know. I take my car to iND here in the Chicago area and they just work their magic. They told me they went as low as they thought it could go without rubbing issues. Sorry I could help.
