    Stock wheels and suspension. Random "utilitarian" mods featured on this great forum.
    • Rear diff breather if you're going through deeper water or at least before it corrodes shut.
    • Not a mod but snug down your u-bolts to 52 lb-ft.
    • Lube up your gas door before it seizes over time and bends hinge
    • Interior center armrest organizer; truck should've come with one
    Other than that, drive and enjoy it.

    Only 2k on my 2020 but went out and immediately bought the hose and clamp for this little mod. I'm currently leasing so I'm trying everything I can to keep the truck immaculate.

    So assume this is still a problem on 2020s? They didn't change/fix it? If so, guess I better go grab the stuff myself.

    They did not change it. Did this mod with 7k on mine. No rust.

    I've got about 300 on mine so far, so hopefully not an issue yet! Though since it is summer I've been running a/c pretty much everywhere I go.

    I noticed the other day, it was dripping onto the frame and rolling back about 4 inches behind the wheel well. Then went searching for a solution. Just did it this morning and it’s working well. Seems dumb that they poke it through towards the front end instead of routing it down and back from the factory

    Wow glad I found this. Just picked up my 2020 and just added the 5/8 heater hose and got some clamps. With only 200miles on the truck, this is def the first mod.

    Thanks!
