    Hey I'll reiterate the quality. My sliders are bombproof! Had several people comment on the way they are designed being VERY sturdy.

    The show your taco in scenic places thread, in the 2nd gen section, is pretty mild. 3rd gens posts photos in there all the time, but no one says shit. I find it amusing they don't catch which section they are in, but keep it to myself.

    Front doors got the Noico Black and Noico Red treatment. Installed the Kicker KS 6x9 component set. Ran new speaker wires into the doors since they'll be running off a Kicker Key. PXL_20210408_233704763.jpg

    Got the @AL Offroad Products roof rack installed. Diggin' it so far. I chose the AL because I liked the side panel design, I liked the mounting system (curved brackets that go straight to the roof instead of spacers), and the group buy made the price very competitive.

    Installation was pretty straightforward but a little different than what I've seen from other racks. First the brackets bolt in (loosely) first and then you attach the cross bars, then the side panels. Took a bit of wiggling everything back and forth to get it centered and square. The hardware supplied was a little different than what they use in the installation how-to video, but not difficult to figure out.

    Thinking about adding some grab handles and scene lights next. The front fairing is positioned all the way down and includes a rubber seal that blocks 99 percent of the wind noise. Honestly I can't even tell it's up there. Only bummer so far is that even with the fairing all the way down it sits a tiny bit above the level of the crossbars, so when I have my canoe on there it will rest on the fairing and not the crossbars and probably scrape the crap out of it. The fairing with the light cutout would likely eliminate this but I'll figure something out.

    Anyway, pics:

    Great info. Quick question, is the logo on the fairing permanent or removable?

    Looks nice. I would probably go with this one if I didn't already have one installed. The spacers for the feet vs curved feet that fit right to the body is a much cleaner look. It doesn't look like an afterthought.
