    Anything over 72 MPH is where I see the MPG Cliff. For me, 72 is where the truck hums along right around 2100 RPMs and I can usually push 20+ even with a roof rack with a plano case and traction boards, plus a tent over the back half.

    Right now I’d have to loosen the four bolts each time. The bolts will be replaced with knobs so it’s more convenient to access without a screwdriver. As little as I’ve had to use the shovel or any other hand tool, it’s a compromise I’m fine with. I’d rather spend the 100 dollars I’m saving on something more critical.

    Crappy gas station shot but after searching for a good deal for almost a year, I finally got the exact snug top I’ve been after, didn’t need to get it painted and for a great price. Purchased from an AZTW member but being too excited after we fitted it, I forgot his name.....sorry bud.
    Its the small wins in life that make it worth it.

    Whats the non-CB radio you got?
    You could swap out the phillips heads for big thumb screws and that would be a permanent solution!

    I made my own with some aluminum bar stock, but it'll only work if you want the lights mounted from the bottom.

    I like the BAMF, just didn't feel like paying for it lol

    In preparation for an upcoming lengthy road trip I Changed the front end and rear end oil as well as the transfer case and engine oil. All new spark plugs and belt. Today I’ll throw on some new rotors and pads and should be all good to go!
