    LOL, yeah, I was going to mount it next to the center console, but the antenna cable wouldn't quite reach so I kept it all running down the side. For my height and where I have the seat positioned, I don't hit it at all. I did a test fit with some tape before putting it there because I was worried about the same thing. It's a tiny little thing, so it doesn't really stick out much, and the mic is really handy right there as well. I probably couldn't mount a standard size one there, though.

    SECOND THOUGHTS

    Uh-oh, starting to doubt how hard-core off-roading I wanna go with this truck. I mean, out to my buddy's cabin on a marginal at best dirt road with a few rather sticky mud pits ... no worries. Out to Jim creek and Knik glacier in Winter when everything is mostly frozen up ... probably no issue.

    BUT sliders and bumpers????
    Will they only encourage me to get stupid and tear up my truck? During Summer I have a Ranger side by side 6x6 I can use to trail ride.

    My gut is telling me my money would be better invested in a kids UTV side by side for when the grandkids come up for the Summer. Gonna keep my eye on this and see if one goes on clearance later this Fall/Winter.

    :notsure: Random MooseMan thoughts.

    Good morning Martin

    You’ve got 6ish months to figure that out. At least it’s on the mental menu, so you can grind over it for a while.

    STFU!!! Sliders are a mandatory add on. My recommendation is BAMF. There is no discussion on this.

    I don't think you have much to worry about. My wife's truck came with sliders. Most of her driving is from the house to work, but I've yet to see her tackle a curb or take out a grocery cart.

    So back to the sliders, yes, you need them. BAMF talk to J. Plus!!!! They are door ding guards as well....two girls one cu....I mean...two birds one stone, yeah thats it.

    Bumper is optional, I would recommend it as you have vast opportunities to hit wildlife, trees, rocks, your mailbox, etc.

    Make the grandkids walk, shit we had to walk back then...up hill, both ways....in the fucking blizzard.

    If you are gonna add the weight of bumpers and sliders, you likely need to upgrade the suspension. I did the lightest sliders and semi-hidden winch bumper I could find to avoid having to dig into the suspension. I like the peace of mind the sliders give, especially when shopping.

    sliders are just handy for ease of roof and bed access
    of course maybe not as handy on minivan, 4 door taco... idk

    hey, you ever going to post a different picture of your new ride other than the "this is the windshield" one on the first page?
    maybe one that shows the bedside decal?
    just a thought

    I have pretty much full armor so it is protected when needed but I don’t let it encourage me to take it rougher places than I’d want to go and tear it up

    Current thoughts are sliders and a streamlined light armor center section front bumper with winch. I WILL NOT be upgrading suspension, beyond maybe Bilstein 5100s a few years down the road. I've read about too many complications and drawn out sagas involving lifts and heavy armor.
