    Nice wheels... What brand and size are they? Do you have a lift on the truck?

    Coverking Genuine Neoprene seat covers. Black.

    A few wrinkles from being folded in the box but hopefully they come out or else I'm going to contact them and ask for a replacement.

    Easy install, hardest part was fitting my arm underneath the seat to grab the strap that holds the base in place. Also had to figure out how to unlatch the stock elastic bands holding the rear plate.

    Fit is pretty good......I'm pretty happy and should work well with the black truck.

    Stock seats....

    Nice! Good choice. Had mine for little under two years and still holding up well. Really easy to clean.

    Same. I've never had an issue so bad that I felt I needed to leave to a damning review lol. In my experience, they have sent me free new covers if I messed up.

    How do you like the change in location?
    I have mines where you had yours by the steering wheel. It does block my view of some dash icons, but it is easy to look at while driving.

    I was used to having it on the column. But it was also in the way. The location it’s at now was not being used. It’s like looking out your rear view mirror. You get use to this location then. Since I tow a camper (nuCamp T@G XL—teardrop) I always monitor tranny and coolant temps. MPG is there, but don’t monitor, Alt output I do watch. I like where it is and will eventually get/be as used to it as it was on the column. I hope this answered your question? And the cord that comes with the scangauge II is long enough for this location.

    Ordered some touch up paint and clear. Going to get this old brown truck pretty’d up some, then when weather allows polish and wax. It’ll never be a beauty queen but at least I can keep it looking presentable.

    Thanks for your thoughts on it. You did answer my question.
    I also like to monitor the trans temps and mpg's. More mpg's now that I have an additional trans cooler and is no longer a concern.

    Cleaned out some out of service gear at work and snagged this old portable oxygen bag to use as a recovery bag.
    Now we’re bracing for this storm to hit.

    Please sir... Which trans code did you use? I can't get any of em to work on my '13. Does it even work with a manual trans?

    Added a bed mat today. First thing I’ve added to it since I bought it.

    I'm interested in your tailgate assist. Is that a custom setup? Could I see more pictures of what you have?

    That pack will work very nicely. Do you already have a recovery shackle that will go into your trailer hitch reciever? Now you can start picking up some stuff here and there to have it ready. I can show you the little compressor i have for tires also. I'll go over a bunch of stuff with you when you are ready.

    I'd be interested in some knowledge about some good recovery gear I should have and an air compressor. Love the ARB but its a bit pricey. Wondering if there's another option that I could install in the bedside?
