    Finally updated my Gen 2 with a new head unit (running wireless Android Auto). For our trip to Colorado. Always hated finding stations or CDs. What a great addition.

    It's a Panasonic DMH-WT3800NEX. 9" display. I chose it because it doesn't have some of the be bells and whistles (like HD tu er and HDMI). Just didn't need them, so it's less pricey.

    First time using the Fumoto. Cleanest oil change ever. Only had to wear a glove to tidy up the filter area (I always cram an empty water bottle under to collect the drip). Spray some carb cleaner thru the hose and PVC elbow to clean up and tada!

    I’ve wanted a set of the wheels you have for a long time. Remember seeing them on lots of trucks when I first got mine, don’t see them as much anymore. I guess those that had them changed to methods :rofl:.

    **little bird told me my wife got me wheels and tires. :)

    The little bird being my wife, but I have to wait to pick them up and mounted until she gets back from her work trip.

    Question for everyone with a swing out with a spare: How or what have you done to secure your spare from getting stolen?

    I use specialty locking lug nuts on the carrier and a heavy cable and padlock. I would run the cable through and around one of my spokes leaving one of the loops just behind the tire, then tightly coil wrap the other end of the cable until I had just enough to put the lock through both loops. This way if they were able to get the tire off the carrier there wouldn’t be enough slack to slip the cable over the lug plate.
