    I've thought about it but my garage is full at the moment and its way too cold to do any metal work outside so i will probably just wait til this summer after I get the lift and tires on.

    Did some offroading today and almost lost my trailer plug a few times so figured it was time to relocate before it broke.


    Lucky enough the plug harness comes out easy

    Due to the curvature of the location ill have to get some black silicone or something to fill in the gap.

    Feeling kind bummed... Just picked up the truck from the alignment shop and the guy tells me that is was way out of alignment (which I knew ) but what I didn't know was that I was supposed to ask for the sheet saying what is was and where it is now. So now i have no clue where my alignment is. Idk it just feels weird having someone work on the truck and you don't really know what they did.

    Thank you.




    Just picked up some orange and blue clips for the fender flares to replace the ones that broke this past weekend. $3 for the blue ones! good thing I didn't need that many. Still need todo a lot more trimming and figure out why I'm getting a clunking noise form the OMEs.
