    Hmm that's interesting. Never heard of that problem before. Looks like RJAllDay702 bought the aftermarket setup. I was planning on having a custom one fabricated. Not trying to crack my bed though :confused: Thanks for the heads up...I might have to do some more research on these things.

    Hmmmmm, not sure if I want a soft cover or not. I've been leaning towards a Fold-a-cover since they lock. I also like the fact that with a hard tonneau I can load things on top of it if I needed/wanted to. But, money may be the deciding factor. Currently trying to get a set of NFABS to replace the side steps I have now. Talking to a guy in Reno that's selling his for $200.

    No, don't want sliders. I don't offroad that much to need sliders. I mainly just like the look of the NFAB side steps rather than the side steps I have now.

    Sorry man totally didn't see this one. I had the tire gate on there for about 2 months right when my truck was done being built up. I loved the look and simplicity of it, but as Derek stated it cracked the sheeiittt out of my bed from offroading. So ultimately I had to sell it. If your not doing too much high speed stuff then you're totally fine. Stock shit doesn't seem to stay on my truck. :p

    edit: I would definitely have one fabricated though. Matt over at MCM is about to do one for me that is gonna turn out bitchin. Hit me up if you need any ideas or have any questions.

    Anybody know of a good/reliable shop in the NW that can do an alignment on my 2012? Last year when I put my 5100's on the front I took it to the Firestone on Durango but I've never been happy with the results of the alignment.

    Can they do a 2012 there? I feel like I called there last year and there was something with the '12 & '13 models where they had to hook up to the ECU after they do the alignment.

    Above statement makes zero sense to me. Nothing frame/suspension related has changed since 2009.

    Didn't make any sense to me either last year when I called around. I forget what exactly it was they said but said I had to go to a certain shop that had the right computer to do it with.

    Well I just read the conversations about tonneau covers. I was wondering if the soft cover ones are give any safety to your belongings if you leave them in there. I was thinking of trading the truck for a crossover but I love it too much. So I need that space for when I travel and stuff. Two dogs peeps need to use that bed. So any advice will be helpful. Dont wanna spend too much since this is going to take over me buying my lift.

    My vote is that your truck will be the same as it is today a year from now! :p

    I personally prefer a hard tonneau over soft. Something like the Fold-a-cover (http://www.foldacover.com/) can lock. I've seen some soft covers that lock, but they can still be cut open. I'd like to be able to secure things in the bed of the truck and not worry about it. Just a personal preference though.
