    Tinted the windshield (so much nicer in the sun and keeps so cool I only need a/c on lowest setting). Also bought an organizer for the center console.

    Stainless exhaust, 16" TRD wheels, 285x75x16 MTR Kevlars, Icon Stage IV, Icon Secondary shock hoop with adjustable remote reservoir bypass shocks, ATO shackle flip kit, AP U-bolt flip, AP Skids (IFS, transmission, T-case, diff cover)
    Thanks Matt, here's what I've done so far: Icon stage 4 suspension set, Icon LCA skids (LCA protection and to work with next item), Icon S2 2ndary shock hoop with Icon bypass remote resi shocks, ATO shackle flip, Icon hydro air bump stops, skids & slides. I overdid the preload (per Icon) and need to back it off but I netted about 4+ inches. I do not rub on the mount because I did BAMF cab mount chops, however, the driver's side rubs the fender skirt in reverse with the wheels fully locked to the right (got to trim) and the bypass tube on the drivers side needs to be rotated a little more as the tires hits at full lock left going forward. I did not measure the before and after on the rear lift but will post hub-fender #s again after I back off the coilovers.

    Pretty lame mod today: Installed the 14" Antenna-X that greeted me in the mail box. Tired of hitting all the darn tree limbs.

    Sunday I setup a new Escort Max Radar detector and took it for it's first drive today. I'll eventually swap it out for the Escort 9500ix in the 911, but wanted to play with it a while.

    Use some light oil on the threads of the antenna or else you're going to have a rusted mess after a few months.

    Thanks for the reminder, but I had read that before. I used some lithium white grease on the threads before I installed it.

    This site is a gold mine of information and so many knowledgeable and helpful people (and without attitude either). I've learned so much about this truck already.
