    I missed the testing round of those and waited (kinda)patiently to buy one, finally got it installed at the beginning of April. I like it, with a Ram mount it’s my favorite phone placement so far.4B4B39F7-928F-45FF-B9B4-619232F23DAC.jpg1B35959D-A9D8-434C-A2CF-65B8183ACBCE.jpg

    I actually Jerry rigged my old fender liner for the time being. I’ll send some pics, not the greatest. I’ll be doing the intake cowl mod soon, just need to order parts and stop being lazy

    Sent my driver side shock into ADS for a rebuild, hopefully it’s a quick turn around. Also, Bxbuilt was running an insane deal on retrofits. So I may or may not have ordered some...

    Hard to take photos with the lighting but you should get the point. Scored these tabs that I just bent up, drilled through and zip tied. On another note, my intake hoses came for he cowl intake

    3”. I thought i was going to use sch10 3” stainless pipe i could get at work, but turns out I ordered a piece of aluminum pipe that was pretty cheap. All I need now are the clamps and rubber to put around the edge of the hole.

    Yeah I went with 3 as well. Might just use some door trim to see if that will work around the hole

    Cowl intake is done. Haven’t been able to drive it yet since it’s still on jack stands. Hoping this helps with dust in the intake

    I just used steel for the shield. None of my local stores had it in stock so hopefully it doesn’t rust a ton. And not yet, truck is still on jack stands. Waiting for my shock to be sent back from ADS. Definitely notice more engine noise inside the cabin

    Not sure really. Noticed it was louder on start up but the same during idle. I’m sure it’ll be similar to an after market CAI

    Finally did a full wash. Used a stripping soap, clay bar and applied a ceramic coat today. The amount of pollen this year is insane. Hard to tell in the second picture but this is only a few hours later... might have to take some more off the rear flares

    Damn that’s nice paint. Want to do my truck next? And the pollen this year is crazy here as well. Looks like it’s snowing sometimes
