    to be fair, most people here buy a new truck and start tearing it apart

    granted thats a full baked potato from that start but it’s pretty sweet. Looks like it going to turn out sweeeet

    Yeah, I’ve purchased new vehicles before and torn into it but nothing like @BajaHoncho. It is pretty sweet and curious to see how this turns out.

    I would guess less rust = easy to undo bolts = saves a lot of shop time

    FYI: my driver's started to condensate like 3-4 months later. They sent me a replacement (free), just keep an eye on them. Swapping out just the fog is easier though later.

    Lmao that's just great man, love it

    Hidden winch installed, but completely accessible. I’m pretty proud of how it came out, almost like I knew what I was doing.

    Just some FYI notes. Pay the small difference for CAPA certified which are, by insurance standards, the closest quality to OEM. Check the shipping cost before you commit. Also price the required scoop components. Know the total cost before you order. I assume you have watched/searched the hood swapping thread with no luck. For what it's worth, if you buy a used non-color matching hood, you will spend around $500 for a complete quality strip/prime/paint/seal job. I was searching that site for a scooped hood for my 2nd gen but, unfortunately, they had no scooped hoods due to supply chain issues. You will also be able to sell your flat hood for $350 to $450+. I had my flat hood and roof quality shop stripped and painted for $985 total. Also look at national used part sellers. They usually include free shipping and are the best OEM color matched parts to your original paint. When you receive a shipped new painted hood you really cannot check the color match when they offload it. If it is a shade off you will not know until it is next to, or mounted on, your truck. Getting one painted at a local quality shop insures color matching and they guarantee that. Not sure what an aftermarket company would do if your new hood, even the correct color code, is not a perfect match to your truck. If you know a good paint shop it may be a better option, considering the total cost, to simply buy a hood with only primer paint and get a guaranteed local paint job.

    Nice work!

    I'm sure it is on your list, but I'd do something about this:

    upload_2022-10-31_22-1-17.jpg

    bend or grind that tip at 45 degrees and/or make a rubber boot or something. It's just going to make noise and rust.

    BTW: I didn't know "Virginia is for lovers"! And so we learn...

    I installed my 5100 right where the auto phone charger is located and away from the sun. I frequent 4C - good place to chat.
