    Hats off to Matt, my GOAT armor arrived Friday; just in time for opening day Saturday. The wife drew first blood and came home with a nice little roe buck. I, personally, love the GOAT armor. It’s exactly the solution I was looking for since my DD is gradually becoming more of an off road rig, but not solely dedicated to dirt. Just being honest, TRD Sports can only dream of being TRD Offroads. But it’s sure nice screaming down the Autobahn.

    Ordered a new R/F fender for it yesterday. Going to have @crashngiggles help me install the snorkel once I get it painted.

    "Upgraded" my AAA membership.

    I replaced my U-joints and carrier bearing after 175k and am I glad I did because I don't know how many more miles they would have lasted. Let me tell you if you are going to plan on doing this job go rent the press from your local auto parts store. If I had not of done that myself I am sure I would still be beating on those U-joints to get them out.
    I finally ordered and installed new door seals to get rid of the damn kazoo we will see if that does the trick. I think it will as the doors are a little harder to close now. I also ordered and installed new rear spring isolator pads due to the originals being worn. Every bump in the road you would hear them creak and getting in and out of the truck was driving me nuts due to the creaking as well. The sound of silence when getting in and out now is amazing.

    to 100 mile or 200 mile towing? When I had the basic AAA I would use up the tows with friends and family, so I upgraded to the 100 mile level and now no one has needed a tow lol

    Ya never know right? Also did you ever figure out if that boot was the correct one for the slip joint on the RC driveshaft? Just for future reference

    Are those the “seat savers” or the “precision fit”? I’ve been eyeing the Carhartt covers for months, just can’t decide which one.

    Sealed up my floor today. All that’s left is to fill up the trans with oil and mount my skids and then the swap is complete.

    These are the Precision Fit. I thought about it for a long time as well and then I saw some that a friend had in his truck and pulled the trigger. They fit extremely well. The fit was very tight and the quality seems top-notch.

    Did you wrap the tape around the t-case shifter for a noise isolator?

    I did. I used sound deadener and wrapped it around it, and then some gorilla tape as well. It certainly won't hurt anything. We'll see if it helps though.

    Got it dirty today, and added some lights in driving beam a few days ago. Was concerned about the hood glare, but it doesn’t seem to be too bad for the short periods of time I’ve used them. Going to start working on my bussman box in the next few days so I can get rid of the harness that came with the lights. I installed the lights with the brackets facing opposite ways on each light to try to decide which way I like the brackets facing after a little while of living with them. Going to switch it to the way the driver side light is.B5DBF298-3732-4E89-9BF0-65A7FD543616.jpg
