    I haven't, but since you reminded me, i just may do it tomorrow. Agree on the noise reduction. Sound system is sounding better than ever.

    Yup, can't wait to have it all finished. I ordered more red just in case.

    I also noticed a difference after installing Noico to the roof, especially driving in the rain.

    Is it stiffer and stronger than the plastic? Also just replaces original panel correct? No drilling or anything as I will about to order as well. Looks awesome.

    That looks really nice! That lift is just about the perfect amount IMHO.

    I paid the higher price for an OEM one. I wanted to fix it and forget it for another 10 years. Plus - did not know for sure if the cheap one would be noisier. Good luck with your project.

    Yes, being aluminum it is much stiffer than the flimsy plastic. It is a direct fit with no drilling needed. Slides right in and factory hardware is used. I installed all the hardware loosely so I could adjust the panel to perfection before tightening down the hardware.

    Where did you get the mirrors? I like the signals on them. No additional wiring was required to power the signal?

    I did nothing to it except drive around after going to the airsoft swap meet yesterday. The swap meet was lame, hardly anybody there so I took the truck on an extended drive home.
    I think I'll do some more "exploring" later today.

    Looks like the "post project" meal project turned out well.

    Yes, it deadens that noise considerably though roof rack noise is still there. I find that the rear glass transmits much of the noise with or without the bars on. I think it’s due to the slider, a solid rear window would be quieter. It’s like having a door window up in the upper seal but not quite firmly seated.

    On a 2010? Wow, that’s low mileage. Mine has over 170k, still runs like new.

    I figure if someone wants them, they're going to get them, but I'm going to make it a pain in the ass for them to do it. :D
