    @Dr. Hook Not me but my brother busted a spring few months back on his ‘17 Pro. His extended warranty covered it. Service manager didn’t have much good to say about the Fox shocks and it took weeks to get a replacement set.

    I did. I think I might buy a black OEM down the road though. The painted one has too many nics from abuse.

    Bought these just for fun. They are exactly what I have now, morimoto style + a DRL halo.

    I plan on buying a new steel bumper soon and will be switching over to high quality lights. Will most likely put these up for sale with my other two sets of fogs when I make the switch.

    I can highly recommend the DD SS3 Sports once you decide to go down that rabbit hole. They throw a ton of light for the price point... @memario1214 will set ya up right on a set.

    Absolutely. I'm considering between rigid and diode dynamics. Which ever mounts better to the future armor Thanks for the recommendation :)

    I pick these up for free with a gift card. No harm no foul :D

    Realized when I got in the truck at lunchtime that I left my floor mats hanging at the car wash yesterday.
    Stopped by on my way home but obviously they weren't there any longer. Gonna try calling tomorrow and hopefully they have them.

    Upgraded to a BPF front skid from @Wyckedan anybody do anything to close up that gap?
    Also have some inner and outer tie rod ends on order.

    The bolt hit the frame, and broke the welded on nut lolol. Going to look for shorter bolts I think.

    That...might be my bad. I probably got longer bolts because of the washers I used, and forgot about it. I can weld that nut back on if needed

    No worries! Ya when we install your lift we can look at it. I'll get some shorter bolts and see what's up.

    There’s supposed to be a gap if I remember correctly. Allows some wiggle room so that the skid plate doesn’t damage the bumper upon whatever impact

    Looks great! What headlights and fogs? Also, what size wheel and tire combo? What are the wheel dimensions, offset, back spacing. Thanks!

    2.5" OME lift, 1.25" wheel spacers, 16" trd anthracite wheels wrapped in 265/75/r16 duratracs, tyger tonneau cover, plus a flew other odds and ends. More to come.
    Ever had any issues with the license plate being mounted on the skid? I was thinking about doing the same since I can't stand it being on the bumper but here in ca they're really uptight about being able to see the front plate.
