    LOTS better! Can't say it's gone completely but now it's on the level of tire thread vibration. Before, it was like being in a paint mixer with the vibration so bad, I couldn't keep my rear view mirror adjusted.

    Will try to add a spacer to the center bearing to see if I can get rid of it completely but for now, I'm happy I got rid of 95% of it.

    Wasn't a difficult project but beware, Murphy always shows up! If there are 4 bolts that need to be removed, 3 will come off like butter but you'll spend an hour banging and cussing on the last one. If a flange has 4 holes, 3 will line up perfectly but the last one will be off just enough to prevent the bolt from going through until enough prying, banging, and cursing has been applied.

    The smooth ride is worth it though!

    I still have it. You can pick it up if your local. FYI it’s just the chrome cap you have to reuse your own brackets

    Something I've been meaning to do for ages and finally got around to it today.

    Added a 12v port for the rear passengers. This can be used with a USB adapter as well.

    Just an inexpensive 12v port from Autozone.

    20201013_131639.jpg

    Measured the center point and down 4" to clear the back of the cup holders. Used a 1" hole saw for the cut.

    20201013_113917.jpg

    20201013_113950.jpg

    Installed

    20201013_114438.jpg

    20201013_125054.jpg

    Used an Add-a-Fuse to power it off the existing power port circuit. I have a 10 amp fuse protecting it. That should be enough to juice a couple of phones, games, etc. I can always go to 15 amp if needed. But you don't want the accessory fuse to be higher than the circuit fuse. So 15 would be max for this setup.

    20201013_130302.jpg

    Hot wire routed to the rear of the console along with a ground secured.

    20201013_125019.jpg

    Hot wire loomed for protection.

    20201013_125434.jpg

    Positive and negative hooked up.

    20201013_125627.jpg

    Final product.

    20201013_130455.jpg

    With dual USB adapter in place.

    It’s been a while since I’ve been on, but yesterday finally placed my order for the Icon stage 4. Expecting a small improvement over the 3” blocks that I bought the truck with. o_O
    Truck needs some love, so probably gonna take care of a few things while I wait for the kit to come in.

    Not sure if this is the place to ask, but will a cat-back exhaust from a 3rd gen go on a 2nd? Or too much trouble?

    Looks good. A lot beefier than the Husky work light from Home Depot.

    Seems like Harbor Freight doesn't sell the light anymore.

    Correct it is raptor liner. Top was before it was untapped.Bottom it all done. Had it priced to paint but couldn’t justify over 5,000 on a 2005 model.

    This is exactly what I am thinking of doing eventually. Mine's got a lot of paint chipping off it and really can't justify the price for a paint job either. Was it fairly easy to do? How long do you have to let it dry for?

    Bed liner has been such a nice feature when offroading. No more pin stripes.
