    What's up guys! Well, I continued the mod list today with a new pop n lock, army navy store extra d-rings (all six bolts done), and the door sill protectors. All and all, sucess for all 3 projects. The sill protectors were cheap in price, but good quality and easy install...pop n lock installed without the linkage extenders (tried it first that way, no play, worked good). My suggestion for the rings is the dremel technique to remove fender washers, step bit/cutting fluid to widen the holes on d-ring, then place them under the d rings to cover the large hole, and use flat black paint because the gloss peeled. Only (slight) gripe is the key cylinder on the pop n lock sticks out a little too far. I'm trying to work up the cajones for the Satoshi/ grill dechroming and BHLM!:proposetoast:

    They were from my dealer....25 bucks shipped for the C-cab ones...they are not a plastic plate w/ adhesive like they look...actually like a tough decal. They are not hard to install, just pop up the wire channel covers, clean the area with like some windex or cleaning wipes/ dry, and stick em' on!

    That's odd how the PnL cylinder sticks out like that. Mine isn't like that at all.

    No Pop n Lock for '09 with camera yet, correct? (not shown on the link that pops up here for them....)

    Thinking about trying to relocate the camera anyway, but I have to clean up all my other messes first.
