    Ill opt for the TBN and TAN after the next 15k miles. I just went with the standard test, as this is the first time I have ever sent a sample to be tested.

    I chose Blackstone labs because they are from Indiana and my step dad sent his samples there before he retired and closed his mobile diesel mechanic business. I chose not to stay in the business after I saw what it did to his body over 40 years. That and most of the heavy equipment rental company's (MaCallister, Red-Top) started hiring internal techs rather than subbing it out.

    Finished my sleeping "pad". 1" foam insulation board, a piece of luan and a small 1x3" frame so I had something to staple the fleece to. Not at all fancy but it's light and flat which were my 2 main criteria. I also needed to make it narrow enough to leave room for the battery box as I use a cpap when I sleep. It will certainly be a change going from my queen bed to this guy. Now I just need a cheap air mattress and I'll be good to go.

    It took three tries for that one, and I ultimately had to manipulate the lock n lube coupler after it was already “attached” to get everything to line up.

    I went with the 4589 cooler. I had to drill three new holes. I was only able to use two existing mounting holes. You can watch this video to see more.

    Tyger Auto TG-GD6T60027 Front Bumper Guard in black. Took about two hours to install. No cutting just bolt on. Remove the front grill to get those hard-to-reach areas. I also added a stubby antenna.

    Mobtown bolt on sliders installed. Fairly easy except for the rear driver side bolt next to the gas tank.

    For me it was the ones you have the washer on the stick for the boxed section. The first one was tricky. The second was easy.

    Also damn near lost my thumb on the one right next to the sharp AF cat heatshield.

    Love my Mobtown sliders. Solid stuff. Best of all, it protects from door dings.

    Yeah the boxed ones were kind of a pain. I POR15’d and bedlined my sliders so trying to get the bolt through the hole was a pain. Had to file it a little to open it back up.

    That is not what they are fore! Damit don't you pay attention they are called sliders because the grocery carts can just slide along them instead of hitting your truck DUH

    I think the "rock" part comes from them being so hard then the slider part as before mentioned. It is some of the most valuable parking lot protection I have purchased along with the speed bump plates under it.
