    Got the elite for offroad use when pulling a trailer offroad. It helps to use the trailer for braking on steep downhills offroad. One trail the
    truck had one wheel in the air and the trailer was leaning the opposite way. Also when going thru the Slat River Canyon and
    dropping off the rim going the the valley (phoenix az )when pulling a trailer.

    Based off a youtube video on the driver side grab handle I mentioned earlier, this is what's suggested for a proper installation. Waaaay better than the ikea hardware they included.

    Post re install. I'm very happy with the updated result. It's now secure and trustworthy. It was a figity process that took far longer than it should have yet totally worth the effort. Even installed a new air chuck on the compressor while I had the tool bag open. Now for the rest of the list.

    I always liked this solution. I actually saw this on a dented truck bed today.

    Seems like an extreme measure to take to avoid pinstripes offroad, but it certainly seems effective.

    Yeah. I have a 20 so it was all plug and play. I take it you didn't get the interior switch? If not how do the lights work? Just come on when the door is opened?

    Anyone who has or is interested in getting an Uptop Overland bravo roof rack (can’t speak to the alpha rack but it’s likely the same), the rack sits pretty high off the roof with the provided spacers. It’s the only thing I didn’t like about it.
    I replaced only the front spacers which were 1.25” with 1” and it sits just fine with plenty of roof clearance. And no dreaded wind whistle.
    It sits barely but noticeably lower to the front of the roof with just that .25” lower profile and does not look tilted at all from the sides.
    Its sits level. However much it’s off from what Uptop Overland intended is not noticeable to the eye from the sides.

    So yeah I did that and replaced the CV axles. Had a ripped boot and figured 88k miles was enough to just knock them both out (for an excuse to work on my truck).
    Drivers side really fought me. Sway bar bolt was stuck as hell. Impact wouldn’t cut it. Chewed up the boot removing it. Then the diff did not want to let go of the old axle. They have had such good times together.
    Drivers side took almost 2 hours.
    Passenger side less than an hour.
    Replaced with axles from extreme terrain.
    They’ve got notches similar to OEM for removal without using a slide hammer.
    Solid, seemingly well built axles very similar to OEM.
    Hopefully they hold up proper. Time will tell.

    Now I get to install new sway bar links.
