    Got my headlights warranty out due to the clear coat peeling (have just over 20k and 1 month left of warranty). I asked if I could swap the fin insert with my mgm fillers and my SA said he’ll take care of it.

    it wasn’t until I got home to coat the lights that I noticed a huge scratch in the same spot you see then (that’s why I’m the installation it says to add protective tape!). Still waiting to hear back about this. Also found the passenger bumper was loose so I started to do my thing and start removing the bumper to find the problem- tech first pulled the flare to far out and started to rip the 3m tape and the lower flare tab is almost split in half, looks like a screw driver indent on the other side with a hardly visible scratch, the black plastic bumper retainer (bumper guide) is broken so now it won’t even stay in place which therefor won’t hold the bumper tight in place. The red push pin that inserts has 1 of 4 tabs broken so it doesn’t hold secure, the plastic that the headlight bolt is inserted to is broken so the doesn’t secure there either. Now I don’t feel bad about pushing further on a replacement

    so in the meantime I took 2 washers and sandwich the plastic then inserted headlight bolt so i have it tight/secured. I would much rather have them give me the parts and let me replace them. I’d even do it in the parking lot so they can keep the bad lights.

    I did the tailgate inserts about a year ago and they are doing good. Cleaned tailgate letter area with IPA before attaching. I am happy with it.

    Archive Garage rear set up went in today. Super impressed, so well built. First test drive to the gas station felt like I was floating.
    Hate the rivets love the install.

    That’s a nice setup :thumbsup:

    I actually like how the Factory USB looks and functions. Keeps my Bluetooth Speaker alive and well.

    I’ve been wanting to do this. Did you just install a blank at the original media location?

    Wow! I really like how you've sculpted the plastic of the bumper here. Did you use a pattern to get both sides even?

    my new bolts are stainless steel. Going to replace all of the spring clamps with stainless hose clamps. Didn’t realize til now but most of these lines don’t have to be pulled to replace the clamps. For some reason I kept thinking they were like radiator hoses.

    hopefully I can get the lines down to bare metal , refinish them and keep this truck for a lil bit longer.

    Not much compared to some of you guys, but got my step rails, front mud flaps, and bed decals off and put on the wheel overlays to black out my rims. It's a start. I have a 5100/ AAL lift to put on, but I don't think today is the day lolIMG_20210801_101218301_HDR.jpg

    I'm putting that off until I have an entire day for it. How long to remove those rivets - any advice? ...and wtf, you often make such good videos - too much cussing this time or what?? :D
