    I just had to comment on this. lost our lab about 4 months ago.(She was 14.50 years young) We have no children. Just wanted to say this is what life is about but I'm sure with over 20 likes you've already figured this out and I'm thinking you already knew this anyway! I'm thinking the dog likes the new home as much as y'all love her. Well done. Many years of enjoyment will follow! Beautiful Dog! Take Care!

    Not when you win a $43k settlement. $1300 is like throwing a penny on the street. I’m a rapper now

    Looking for one for my 2008. Which model is yours. Did you buy a dash kit. If so which one. Is there a supplier in the states. Seems like a lot of competition with Joying in the same price range. Joying seems to have consistent good reviews. Just don't want to wait for the slow boat from China.

    Then throw a "penny" this way if it's such a lowly sum...

    My point wasn't about the $, but about what you're getting for it. That bumper is hot garbage

    Cut the heads off and they drive right out no biggie. @EatSleepTacos thought of cutting the hangers off flush with the frame which will make the rivets even easier. Wish i'd have thought of that but too old and dumb.

    Honestly I dont remember even using an air hammer. I cut the heads off, pried the hangers off, grund the rivets flush with the frame, and then just popped them out with a hammer and punch. Yes it is a bit of work but not awful

    What he means is spend the time to research and get a nicer bumper. But bragging about your money is good too. :rolleyes:

    Is it just me or does your bed look like it’s doing something a little sketchy?

    Bought this one (reason I chose this one because it had the “dot key” chip and same FCC ID for keyless entry as the 05-10 remote) and this programmer.
    Programming for the keyless entry is the same as stock, but to program the key (with engine immobilizer chip) you have to use the key programmer I linked.

    Are they the 2 front doors and the 2 rear doors the same part number or is each door different? I only see Front Door LH and Rear Door LH listed on their site.
    You had to order the handles and the rear covers as well, correct.
