    If the smell comes back you can try an ozone machine, or take it to a shop that does ozone treatments.

    Looks nice and clean! I know the feeling of the dremel on that plastic... I did the same for my winch switch on the console. Quite the mess afterwards along with the hot pieces hitting you while you’re doing it :rofl:

    I left my windows open on a hot summer camping trip on accident one time. Fire smoke smell in the cabin stuck around for months it was horrible. Took a few cleanings and oder-x spray bombs to get it to finally not smell. smoke in a vehicle is so hard to remove.

    You used to be able to rent ozone machines- they work great. I wonder if those are rented out anymore?

    I followed their suggestion and bought two boxes of black and two boxes of red. It looks like that amount will be about right by the time I finish with maybe a little extra.

    Took a day trip to my local Discount Tire to swap some tires and pick up new wheels. Now to beat the rain home.

    Fantastic customer service from @Discount Tire.

    Washed the truck this morning and did a quick spray coat of Turtle Wax Hybrid Solutions Ceramic Wax before the pollen covers it back up. I also removed the cabin filter and sprayed Lysol through the cowl intake and from inside the filter housing to sanitize any bacteria going through the system. Since I live in the heart of NC's pine tree mecca, I used some aluminum window screen to cover the cowl intake port to keep pine needles, leaves, and other debris out. It's not pretty but it's functional.

    Generally speaking, having the largest tires and lowest ride height can prove to be a very effective offroad combo (as long as you have clearance and travel). TYPICALLY.

    make sure you spray your engine intake with lysol or fabreze so your exhaust smells lovely :D

    Edit:

    Oh lawdy I replied to your clean post before scrolling 2 posts :eek:
    As a fellow black vehicle owner I feel your pain.
