    Thanks for this heads up. I just used a 90 deg tubing connector and drained below frame. Was not sure I wanted to get drain anywhere near suspension.

    Again, Thanks so much for the heads up. Great Stuff !!

    Has anybody just considered spraying that area with 3m rubberized undercoating? I checked and there seems to be room enough to get an aerosol can close enough and spray that area. Rubberized undercoating dries hard with no undesired consequences like a extension hose might cause.

    Im still looking for a good mod for anytime fog lights. I HATE that they turn off when the high beams are on.

    Did the A/C drain mod on my 2017 today. Didn't have any rust on frame yet but Summertime is on it's way and I'll be using the A/C a lot.
    Thanks for your write up Jordan.

    None, yet...
    Ditto 4TOY4ME. Saw this thread after pickup up my Gen3 last week and promptly picked up heater hose and hose clamps... when will the rain end in New England though?

    A few minor things...
    Did the mod and it was pretty easy. I ran the hose down the frame crossmember and dumped it out the bottom of the subframe. You can barely see it and it's tucked out of the way of everything.

    Did this mod a while back, finally posting pics.

    Specifically used hose that was heat rated up to ~400F+ or something, and just secured it to the frame with 2 zip ties. Works wonderfully!

    Done without zipties or anything, just let the hose dangle. Thanks for the thread OP!!!

    I have performed this mod with reinforced clear nylon hose, I kept it away from the heat running beside the frame to the outside and down along the frame to the rear of the engine.

    just a follow up on this, since doing this reroute, i notice there is some serious hardwater stain on my epoxy floor from where the tube drips down to the garage floor. Can't imagine it doing that over time on the frame. If you haven't done it, do it.
