    After a week of the rear panel flapping , I put on the provided velcro strips on the tail gate.

    I am very happy with the result. If the velcro ages poorly, I will fit tonneau cover twist studs. Violating the tailgate with drilled holes doesn't phase me in the least! ;-)

    Already had 20 posts on that. I don’t get it. So your last vehicle or stereo worked differently. Are you old dogs who can’t learn new tricks? It’s called change. If my next vehicle works differently I’ll learn that too.

    I use that Turtle Wax Bug and Tar Remover. It works wonders. Better than Goo Gone, but that has just been my experience.

    man I’ve seen some interesting vehicles in fish creek wash that had no business being there. Camrys, Corollas, Astro vans, Volvo sedans…..the list goes on. Good on you for intervening, what a fucking idiot, I’m glad that didnt end badly for them.

    Anyone know what size screws these are? Bottom right of the pic. There are 3 on that lower column (I think all three are the same size, the far left screw might be slightly bigger).

    Sorry for the bad pic but I'm in a hurry and you get the idea. TIA!

    You can see on here that I drilled a hole in the cubby, and shoved them through. I have three of them (and a new switch panel waiting) but you might be able to velcro that Carlisle switch to one side of the cubby? :notsure:

    The entire contents of my water bottle leaked out of my pack onto the sheep skin cover on my driver's seat while I was out snow skiing.

    Does that count as "something done today?

    I've got the wet butt to show.

    And skiing SUCKED , Ice, no new snow, OH, me Oh My I hope it's better tomorrow. ;-)

    Hey did the Icon AAL's only give you 1.5" of lift in the rear?
    I'm ordering a set to replace my current 2" AAL because I like the progressiveness of the 3 leafs.
    But I need 2" lift in the rear.
    I wonder if it would be o.k. to leave the overload spring for that added .5"?

    Find the instructions… there is always (98% of the time) instructions to whatever project you have going on and not just truck related.

    You could heat and massage out at least 80% of those wrinkles (or steam with higher success). Or wait till summer but that’s a bit out for some.

    I did my install in the winter too but would let the skins sit near the heater prior to install and used a heat gun on some stubborn parts and massaged it out. One of the best rewarding projects for me (just need to do the backseats or decide to wait till the kids get a little bit older)

    I’ve been watching guys buy these mats for months because the bed is so damn slick. It never bothered me not having one and since some water gets through the tonneau cover, mostly after running it through the car wash, I liked having the open channels in the bed liner so the water could drain faster. Then I picked up 450 lbs of Olympic weight plates 35 miles away, the night before last. Needless to say, I’m a new believer in the bed mat and one is on its way!!

    I thought about renting a steamer but I’ll probably just wait until summer and just let it come out on its on. You might as well do the back it was the easiest, I have seat protectors for the car seats.

    First test fit of the RotoPax in the location I want. Going to be running two cans, one on each side. Prepping for the Utah wheeling and camping trip. We have a small group from FL heading to the T4R Experience this year in March. Install video will be out soon.

    If they go all the way down to the mirror and they are opaque, then yes, they add to the visual thickness of the A-pillar. At least with the smoked (but otherwise translucent) you can still see through them and it doesn't hurt visibility as much.

    Just read through that PDF (I haven't lifted my truck but I do care about such things) and I think I'm going to have to completely disregard the horizontal aiming portion. When I finally get motivated to do so I'm going to aim mine down just a bit to be less of an asshole to my oncoming fellow motorists. I've driven shorter cars, and I know just how bright my current headlights are at stock settings.

    The initial measurement was +1-3/4" but it's settling. When all is said and done, it's probably going to be right on 1-1/2". On the Icon site, under FAQ, it states that the overload spring could be left in for more lift. The pins provided in the kit allow for keeping the overload. I actually am holding on to my overloads so that if I end up getting a bedrack, I can put them back in to keep the rear from sagging. I would just have to get new pins because you have to cut them to reinstall the factory bump stops. I did see a YouTube video where the guy installed this exact kit and left the overloads on. I don't think he gave a settled, final number though.
