    Run into any weird issues after completely disconnecting power from the truck? I’m still running my original 2016 battery and I’m thinking about proactively replacing it before it leaves me stranded somewhere inconvenient.

    Update: It did not interfere with the cruise control sensor.

    That might be cool to do. Years back I had my stock Fatboy wheels machined and chromed. They used the existing holes and extended the opening to more like a teardrop them dipped them. Turned out great and gave the bike a better look.

    I can understand that. Sold that one a few years back and couldn't stand it so I got a 2016 SGS a few months back with only 4200 miles. Loving it.

    Wow, Now I’m really to do this one. I do not want to chrome them but I might end up removing the powder coat. I’ve got to keep the center caps in mind though.

    I surely didn't expect you to want to chrome them. I almost mentioned that in the first post. It's different for a bike though. You could machine and then have all kinds of options for coatings if so desired.

    Yeah…. I think I just assumed about the chrome. I considered not having them coated at all, but I’m sure I would get a lot of flack for that one. But I don’t live in the salt zone/squad whatever. We will see how this plays out, people like to charge a lot of money for little things like this around here. The quote I got for painting a camper shell was ridiculous. I understand they are professionals and all and it’s their trade but sheesh.

    I agree that could be way overpriced. Keep us posted on the progress as this could be a great mod.

    I got a set from Overland Custom Designs, a lot beefier than stock and they're fully adjustable. I can't say yet how they perform, they're still in their box. :anonymous:

    Looks good. I contacted him a couple of weeks ago and he is preparing to send one out to me as well. May be moving to a state that requires a front plate in the near future so wanted to be proactive and get one while still available.

    @ClassyTacos It doesn't look like you messed with the tie rod ends...


    I know they make sway bar links, but do they make tie rod ends? :notsure:

    found a sweet ARE topper on FB marketplace for $700. I thought I wouldn’t like the silver/MGM color combo, but I think it looks awesome!

    Just installed my ditch light mounts this morning, found alot of rust in the bolt holes on the drivers side, so I wired out the holes, sprayed some fluid film in there then put it all back together. Need to build my wire harness then I can put the lights on.

    Definitely do not use the adhesive on the led light. I already made that mistake with my 2nd gen. After about a week it starts peeling off snd turns into a mess. Get 1/4 inch 3M VHB tape from Amazon, should be $10. The "3M" that comes with the led strip is garbage. I put the vhb on the rail first, then the led strip, went around with a towel to push it down to get adhesion and bamm you got a solid connection
