    There are a couple of write-ups on it but sorry I don't have quick link to it. Just do the search for it.
    I had two with cracks under the fabric. I knew one was there but the other was a surprise. I reinforced those from the back side with original gorilla glue and real tough poly fabric/felt that I have so I'm hoping that will hold.

    Oil change ✔
    Removed the custom bedside decals ✔
    Removed the canopy ✔ no trips planned as of now, and it goes back on so easily with the @upTOPoverland awning mounts. Awning makes my already garbage gas mileage even worse.
    Washed all the mud and gunk off the truck after 4 weeks build up in snow, sand, mud, dust and dirt ✔. It's been a good month.

    Hopefully. I'm not crazy about putting those screws in to hold it on the door panel. I'm afraid I might damage it and not be able to repair.
    I have used 3M spray adhesive in the past. 3M is usually a good brand but what I used this time seems stronger. I had to pull one off and re-do it cause I got it crooked and I thought I wasn't going to get it off.

    Finally had enough energy (recovering from covid and pneumonia) and took advantage of a bonus day off and nice weather to replace my spark plugs. I honestly can't remember when they were done last, but it was at least 60k, if not 90k+ miles ago. Needless to say, they were bad. They were all gapped at least .060 and over. But, based on my novice spark plug reading abilities, I didn't see any signs of trouble when I gave them a once over after removal.

    Pic is as if you were standing in front of the truck looking at the motor.

    Back in the old days, if they looked that good, we'd just re-gap them and keep using them.

    This and that...
    Tried to find an answer to why you should have a minimum amount of recommended air in the bags. All I found it that you can wear a hole in them with out any air. I imagine if they are not in contact at all it might not be an issue. Someone also mentioned they could collapse on themselves which I'm not quite sure how that would happen.

    Are you really going to make us ask "what your doing now"? Or why VHF is preferred over CB's?
    I mean unless you don't want the share. Sincere questions, not sarcasm.

    You don’t want your shocks bottoming out and the 5 psi minimum assures a nominal bump stop level of support as well as preventing the upper/lower plates from smacking each other. The biggest advantage of bags over any non adjustable helper is they recenter the load in the range of travel no matter what the load is, or lift/lower either side/both on demand. The 5 psi is at rest, while driving the pressure fluctuates according to movement.

    Installed some 3rd gen rough country seat covers and received some x-bull traction boards and tire deflate kit. Going to make a couple t slot mounts to put then at the front of the bed. Then I dug out my winter tub in prep for colder weather. Need to go through it and clean my winter gear change out the quart of oil I keep a spare of for a new one.
