    Replaced shift knob, had window tint applied installed tonneau cover.
    I got my windows tinted yesterday, I did notice a pretty good difference in heat when I got into my truck this morning and while driving around town. Doesn't hurt that the truck looks pretty sweet with darker windows, now that this has been taken care of I better start saving some cash for some 235's tires, leveling kit and maybe some wheels too.

    because wheels that are cheaper will crack during hard wheeling

    Do you have any evidence Rocktrix wheels have failed? Asking for a friend.

    not from that specific wheel because ive never seen anyone run them. But I have seen it on a lot of other brands, even methods. if your in the middle of nowhere its worth the extra money for a wheel that is stronger

    Before I drive 7 hours to help my mom move…. I did a quick rear diff oil change, swap air filter, grease zirks, oil change this am. Man, changing the oil with a fumoto oil drain valve behind a steel skid plate is so easy…


    Which makes up for the fact that my passenger CV boot is leaking like a son of a bitch. :bananadead:



    So I swapped that out for a Napa spare that I carry on my wheeling trips. Next week I will reboot both oem CVs and get the Napa back in a case as a spare.


    Possibly I will also clean off my skid :rolleyes:

    If I am honest with myself, the time plus cost of paint may have made it worth paying for powder coating. But then I would have to factor in the frustration of having the shipper possibly (likely?) destroy the powder coating. Oh well, hopefully I'll get these on later this week.
