    I just went with a spray ceramic from The Last Coat. Supposed to last a few months so we will see. And I bought a griots clay pad, wayyy faster vs a clay bar. The pollen is annoying and my allergies don’t like it either

    Haven't done too much lately. Just used a small, silicone coupler at the end of my cowl intake piping to stop some vibrations. Seemed to work but I haven't driven it yet. Also removed a decent amount of preload a few weeks ago and finally was able to get an alignment this past Friday. Rides a lot smoother now

    Haven’t done much lately, I’ve been busy with work. But I was able to go camping for a night the past two weekends. Looks I need to replace my inner boot

    Sorry man just saw this. I did about 2.75 inches in the front and about 2.25ish inches in the rear. The fronts may be closer to 3. I would start with 2.5 and see how u like them. Can always trim more but can’t add more.

    Truck hasn’t been driven much due to the leaking CV boot. Going to try and install a new boot this weekend, been crazy busy with work lately. Also, ordered this bad boy today! Pretty exited

    Head unit is all hooked up. Took me hours to figure out how to wire the damn thing... the instructions were non existent. Also, the metra dash kit is absolute SHIT. Doesn’t fit at all. New Scosche kit came today so I’m hoping that fits

    Finally... After countless hours, ditching the metra kit and buying a Scosche, it’s finally in. Literally 75% of the time was trying to get it to fit. Pioneer 2660 NEX. Fitment is still iffy, but I’m over it... maintained backup camera as well, which is cooL

    C7DC78D9-1D1A-4D91-B1C1-08B11320EB1B.jpg So this happened today... 4.56 gears will be installed in September. Making the drive from the Seattle area to southern Cali (18+ hours). My wife is okay with it since it’s also going to be a mini vacation for her :thumbsup: thanks to @socalexpeditions for putting together the group buy with insane pricing.

    I’ve been doing some reading and think it will fit my needs better. It’s more of a daily for me and don’t think I’ll need 4.88. I don’t rock crawl or wheel it ever, just figured it would be overkill. Seems like a lot of people are happy with 4.56. I’m assuming you’re regeared?

    I have 4.56 and i heard if you do a decent/more highway driving, 4.88s are better..

    That being said, my truck used to be my daily driver and I do alot of highway when Im on a trip, and I get around 220 miles to a tank. Thats including some sort of conversion that I did for my 35s. Who knows if thats correct. It could be more
