    Are you referring to the tailgate anti-theft brackets? If so I’d be interested in a set for 2nd Gen

    Yaesu FT-1900R w/ 2m/70cm Comet SBB-224 antenna, Cobra 19 DX IV w/ 4ft Francis CB24 Hot Rod antenna, Uniden Bearcat BC355N 800Mhz mobile scanner (analog), an external BNC mount routed to inside the cab for a handheld fire/police scanner or HAM HT's, Rancho RS5000 front struts and rear shocks, 6in KC Daylighter (pencil beam), 15x7 Black Rock Wheels Series 942, 31x10.50R15 Firestone Destination AT, fog lights, COBRA antenna hood mount (this is used to mount the GoPro on to)
    I have a 1st Gen, but got tagged... Either case, I can attest that the struts are pretty SOLID!!! I've had them on a few months now and have had to lift my hood a few times since for whatever reason and everytime I do, it's honestly gotten to the point that I kindof forgot that I even have them and just lift the hood without even thinking.

    I've done some wheeling since my install and the struts still work like champs. This picture is from the TW Big Bear 2019 family reunion,
    coming down Heartbreak Trail.

    Not super hardcore, but I can assure you the body is flexing and that was a little bit of a concern at first, but no, NOT a problem!!! We aired up a few hours later, again, not even thinking I had them installed as I open the hood. They just lifted the hood like nothing.

    Btw, to the one poster,
    I have CBI ditch light brackets, even though I'm a 1st Gen, I honestly wouldn't be too concerned. The hood, and mine is max lift, doesn't come all that close. Again, I realize I'm a 1st Gen, but I believe even yours would be fine and clear at max hood lift. Hope this sorta helps you?

    @SpikerEng sorry brotha for being late to reply to your tag. HAHAHAHA, been pretty busy as usual!!! Tired brotha!!!

    Ah ok, we’ll see if it lasts the bedding process. No it wasn’t an up charge luckily.

    I've been wanting to ditch my radio antenna but I don't want to leave a hole there. I want to cap it off without it looking janky.

    that's crazy. $25 filter with new gasket, MaxLife from Walmart is $18 for 4 quarts. Easy decision for me.

    Yea i was kind of shocked with the quote too, they talked about how time consuming it was to get old gasket off and wiping out the pan. They said it was over a 3hour job and around 200 in parts. I may try to get them to Email me that quote, because I couldn't make that job last 3 hours with taking my time and eating lunch and having fun with the process. And Im not an auto mechanic nor have i ever worked on an automatic transmission.

    I used the Auto Zone Duralast TF225 gasket and filter, the gasket was formed perfect to fit and felt like it was of good quality. And it cost exactly what you quoted.
