    K&N Intake will increase airflow and throttle response. That is more noticeable if you have a better than stock exhaust. If you want to add HP to a 3.5 then get a supercharger. They eliminated the headers option, which would provide that HP boost, with the 3.5 exhaust design.

    Got my MESO headlight trim plates in the mail yesterday. I was wondering if anybody has found a way to install them WITHOUT completely tearing up the front end of my truck. I thought I saw somebody post how to do it in this thread, but couldn’t find the comment.

    Did the OEM tailgate lock and bed lights yesterday. Agree with others here, these should be standard on at least some models. Pretty simple upgrades if you’re handy.

    Anecdotal, but talking to my glass guy when he was repairing some chips for me… he said as long as the sensor is not disconnected, recalibration didn’t seem necessary. He said he had a few that were taken for recal after he replaced that way, and they hadn’t needed any adjustments.

    Wait why is the glass sensor a hot new topic?

    Shouldn't the alarm cover instances of "crackhead smashing window" or do I fundamentally misunderstand car alarms?

    In order for your alarm to go off a door (or the hood) has to be opened while the alarm is set. What the crackheads are doing is smashing in the window and leaning in and taking whatever is in the glovebox, console or radar detectors and cameras off of the windshield without ever opening the door. No alarm goes off. It happened to my son's truck. The GBS detects breaking windows or even attempted breaking of a window.

    Added a barrier to keep the huskies from jumping up front while driving. Also added a rear seat cover.

    Metal Barrier- $18:

    Ties- $6:

    Seat Cover- $32:
    https://www.amazon.com/URPOWER-Wate...or+pets&qid=1628447375&sprefix=urpower&sr=8-5

    Had to trim the edges of the barrier to fit. Recommend a jigsaw or grinder. I used a dremel to sand down the metal edges as well. The cable ties hold the it up very well and it’s pretty sturdy. Going to end up putting the cover over the bottom of the barrier instead of behind it.

    Here is what I posted, let me know if it makes sense or if you have any questions.

    It's easier than videos and other people make it out to be. I only loosened the bumper enough to pull it down at the headlight to get to the lower screw on the trim plate. I didnt even fully remove the grill, left all the wires connected.
    Removed the 2 bolts and 2 snaps on the top of the grill and pulled it out/forward to disengage it from the bumper. Just left in sitting on top of the bumper loose. Once you loosen the grill remove the 2 snaps holding the bumper in place, one on each side of the grill located by the headlight assembly. After that remove the lowest snap and bolt in the wheel well. That was enough for me to fit my hand in behind the wheel well cover and push the fender flare clips out from the inside, didnt want to just pull on it and break the clips. The bumper is kinda clipped onto the wheel well at that bolt location, separate the bumper there. Once you get the that all done unsnap the bumper where it meets the fender, the seam by the fender flare. Repeat on other side. After that it was loose enough to pull it down at the headlight to get to the lower screw. Seems obvious but dont let the bumper rub the screwdriver when removing the screw, keep your finger between the screwdriver and the bumper. I rubbed a little paint off the edge of the bumper with the screwdriver on the first plate and was punching myself because I know better. One of those things thats really only noticeable to me but will bother me every time I look at it.
    I hope this all makes sense. Only takes about 30mins. I was kinda disappointed with how easy it was because I like spending time working on my truck.
