    Added on some AVS in channels. Got some universal husky mud flaps to replace the ones on (one is missing and they don't cover new offset). They are super hard and would snap if I ever went over anything, crap just like most the newer ones. I want some rubber! Anyways, anyone know a good universal or custom rubber set up? I'd really like a nice black, flexible set for the front and back to protect the truck from spray.

    I was going to go with whatever color I could find as long as the frame and big stuff was in good shape. I got lucky finding a green one.

    So my blinkers don’t really work anymore and haven’t been able to figure it out, gonna prob go back to halogen.

    also noticed this today, been hearing some creaking for a few days but thought it was just the suspension

    Replaced it to the cat earlier this year, now this is gone so gotta look at some options.

    Catback, I like borla and gibson since they aren't super loud usually.

    all this shit falling apart is starting to get old though.
