    Took the cap off for the summer.
    Then stared/gawked at it while manning the grill

    So I figured it out, incredibly simple fix... the light bar was plugged into the driver side fog light :oops:

    Although I'm still confused how the light bar and d. side fog was still able to turn on, considering the light bar and fog lights wiring harnesses are completely separated :confused::confused::confused:

    Oh well, issue resolved so I'll count my lucky stars... thanks for offering to help though!!

    And yesterday took the pup to a swimming hole. Realized how bad I needed the covers and weather techs. Thus, my previous post. Lmao

    I did my chrome grill moulding with a vinyl wrap. Had a local window tint shop do the work. It took a total of 70 minutes, and that was removing the grill assembly, vinyl wrapped, and reinstall grill assembly. $20 for the vinyl $70 for install.

    Did you try once those orange escapers ?
    What was your experience.?
    I tried them twice in very bad conditions, with no results.
    Sure, when watching on youtube, it works well, on gentle mud and flat terrain.......

    As long as they don’t break they can’t be any different than the expensive max trax... prolly was just situational

    Either of you guys have experience with that hi-lift extended base platform?
    Is that really nice to have/make a big difference?
    Thinking about getting one but have never talked to anyone and heard +/- experiences with em..

    I put 265/75 on mine last week w/ stock suspension & no lift. Fits perfect w/ no rub what so ever.

    yes the base makes a much needed improvement in the stability of the hi lift (my opinion)..have used it now several times and see a difference.

    Used the Max Traxx this winter, works ok in snow, key is not to spin the tires while on the traxx....haven't used them in mud yet.

    What he said
    fits awesome. Only thing I had to do was find longer screws for the emblem as the one Cali gave me were too short. Other than that,

    There seems to be a lot of opinions about Simple Green, and some excellent info at various sites about its use and possible issues....this one is their web site, but does contain a lot of info.....

    https://simplegreen.com/faqs/

    I dont use it but that's just meIMG_0013.jpg .... I do like this, NOT a harsh cleaner by any means, as in not for a HD greasy clean, but if used routinely it works well.....https://www.amazon.com/Griots-Garage-10959-Engine-Cleaner/dp/B00IUE5OCC
