    Damn it, now I want to do this. Was it hard to sew on? I saw the eBay link you posted, I may order a suede one as well.

    It’s so worth it man! It is a bit of a pain to sew on. However, with the help of YouTube and taking my time I fully believe anyone can sew one on.

    Yesterday, replaced both sway bar links (torn boots) with greasable Moog links. Also adjusted the passenger coil...didnt get it aligned right when I put new suspension in and the top hat bushing was muffin topped and clunking.

    Probably not much. I had 60K on my original plugs. Changed them, cleaned maf and throttle body and saw no change in fuel mileage.

    I shared the link to the cover on the previous page. Comment #166912. Sewed it on with the help of some YouTube videos. Let me know if you have any other questions :thumbsup:

    Replacing everything worn, broken, and rusted.
    Mine ran smoother. Just make sure you disconnect the battery so you can reset the ECU. Otherwise you'll be gear searching for a while.

    Sorry just seeing this. There is a slight rub in the front of the inner fenderwell at full steering lock. Since you have a lift I don't think you'd have the same rubbing. I could trim away the plastic easily but I'll do the lift first. Just wouldn't recommend getting the tires first cause then you'll have the rubbing.

    Just commuted today. That's 255/85/16s on stock suspension. Slight rub at full lock. Side note, if anyone wants to trade their standard height camper shell for my Leer 180 I'd be very interested. Color is MGM, it does not match my truck.

    (wouldn't be a Georgia pic without a Waffle House sign in the background)

    Just swapped out my spark plugs at 65,000 with Toyota Denso's. I've been slacking a little on the maintenance.

    I thought it was going to be a horrible experience but it was super easy and only took 45 minutes!

    Here's what I pulled, NGK on the drivers side and Denso on the passenger:

    Not too bad for 65k! I did mine at 30k and I think I'll let them go a little longer this next time.

    Not sure what the cylinder numbers are but the ones closest to the firewall on the drivers and passenger side were definitely worse than the rest. I'll do them sooner next time.
