    They make some that are a compromise between looks and performance that you may still be interested in. I think they make one that's 18 inches tall or so that works better than the stubby

    I picked up some alloy rims from Cativelense last Sunday , the price was great for me and I see that he purchased his new tires to go with his new rims so it seems that everyone made out well. Nuno indicated he would keep me informed as to the Fluid Film respray gathering and other things going on . It was good to meet up with him checked out some of his mods ---- gave me an ides or two as to which direction in the future.

    Hope to meet more of you going forward see you on the road and get those trucks dirty'

    When doing electrical work don't let the smoke out of the wires because if you do the wires wont work.

    Don't overlook the obvious

    i love that new hybrid bumper, that just fits in the black part under the grille, still has all of the nice toy mounting features without all the bulk and weight of a full bumper. i forget who makes it tho.

    Speaking of bumpers, anyone have any opinions on a good plate rear bumper that i can use my stock tow hitch and would look good color matched to the truck??

    There's not many that work with the stock receiver. I have an Iron Cross that does. Cut out the tacky logos and replaced them with LED pods. Fab Fours also has one.

    I went with the pelfreybilt front and rear and I love em the rear doesn't work with the stock receiver but it comes structurally fabbed with a receiver, idk if I would be towing a 30' camper with it but I feel more than comfortable towing my 17' fishing boat with it. Hope that helps but honestly I love mine so much I take any chance I get to talk that company up

    Happy Saturday peeps. Was outside literally all day doing yard work. Also did a good deed and mowed an elderly neighbors grass. His machine is in the shop.

    Checked out the Pelfrey forum their stuff looks great. But no-go with the stock hitch. I don't like the flip up license plate to get to the hitch. All I am towing is a 17' Mako as well but it would make me nervous that someone would make it a reason to pull me over. A couple beers while fishing and I would be dicked.

    Welded the legs onto my TG sliders this weekend and got a couple coats of primer on. Maybe I'll get them painted and installed this week!

    Met up with Jon (@jc11taco89) yesterday and did some work on the sliders. Put on the POR15, looks awesome with just the POR on them but plan is to do Raptor Liner this weekend and install

    Thanks to Jons and his dad for grilling up some hot dogs and hosting part 1!
