    Removed the chrome badging. Like the clean look much better.

    No not really. I didn't do a write up on it. I can get photo's later, I just painted it yesterday so I didn't have time to install it after paint.
    Materials used:
    -Channel iron from an old bed frame.
    -Box Tubing from Homedepot
    -1.25" 1/16 wall thickness, for the main tubing
    -.50" for the cross bars. (Should have used .75" but HD was sold out.

    Test fit my long awaited 1up double duty two bike rack. Took 31 days from the time I put myself on the waitlist to my door step. I went from Kuat Sherpa 2.0 to this. What an awesome build! Well worth the wait. I just need to test fit my MTB that’s in the shop for rear derailleur problem.

    Nice. I found those tires have been great. No issues in the snow, off-road or normal driving. I'd get them again.

    Said I’d never let the dogs in the truck. Not because I don’t want it dirty. But because they will scratch the shit out of my door panels. Have to take them to the beach and have no interest in riding 7 hours in the girlfriends Nissan Rogue . So a 17 dollar moving blanket for the bottom (seats folded down) and a couch cover that I cut in half and poked holes in for suction cups. 25 bucks and the couch cover I had. I’m not as worried now.


    Gonna poke holes in the blanket for small carabiners to attach to the front head rests and where the foldable rear seats clip into the back of the truck to secure it even more.

    What tires are you running? I’m about up for a new set and those look good.

    Put the 275/70/17 KO2s on the SEMA wheels, then put on the Elka 2.5 DCs with Deaver AAL. Looks like I'm right at about 2-2.5 inches up. Future plans include the backordered SSO Hybrid and the Warn Zeon 10s Platinum, so I might have to crank up a tad when they get installed. I'm amazed at how this thing handles now. I was worried I wasted a bunch of money, but it's night and day.20210909_082306.jpg 20210909_101050.jpg 20210911_115427.jpg

    The Pro on my badges on the doors are red, and the Pro on my floormats on red, so I decided to make the Pro on my tailgate red as well. I know, huge mod.

    Put my new decals on the tailgate. I like the old school flavor on some things.

    I did the old school look as well. I had some similar stickers on my Jeep back when I had it. I would put something like that on my Taco but it's black and I really don't like the look of white decals on the paint. I do have a few stickers on the back window though :cool:

    Going to install ICON spring pack next week. I’m looking for a little more height in the back when unloaded and more support for those times when carrying a RTT, dogs, gear etc. it just seems to sag a bit. I’m going to leave the Fox shocks that came with my Pro Model for the time being. I think I’ll start with Option one below and then consider whether I need to move up. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    I've heard less than stellar things about ICON suspension. Issues with leaking, wrong parts and poor service. I would look at other options including Kings, ELKA and better FOX before nailing down an option. Also, you can send your old Fox shocks to me and I'll gladly dispose of them :cool::p:D

    Did these yesterday:

    1. Put on the R4T lower control arm skids plates. I was expecting this to be more of a headache than it was (knowing my dumb redneck luck). But for once, it really was a simple, straight forward install.

    IMG_20210911_165416.jpg

    2. Add these new bed tie downs from @602runner. Really easy to switch out.

    Here is his link on TW if you're interested in them:

    And if anyone wants the old OEM ones, inbox me.

    And today, gave her a quick wash to knock the dirt off after it barely rained earlier this week.
