    RCI rock sliders engine/trans/transfer case, differential and A-arm skids. ARB twin-compressor, rear air locker. Bilstein 6112/5160 with Icon RXT Leaf Packs. UpTop Overland Bedrack.
    After a few days of double and triple checking everything was tight for my coilovers, swaybar, endlinks, UCAs, LCAs, front differential mounts etc, I finally fixed a “popping” noise in my front end that would happen during low speed and when front end would articulate. Ended up being my RCI engine skid which is aluminum was rubbing on my chassis at a mounting point just in front of the transmission skid plate and after spacing the engine/transmission skid plate with a couple of grade 8 washers, it’s gone. I only figured this out after reading a bunch of posts on this forum and one in particular from @Rjparnow about his RCI skid plate doing something similar in a post from 2020.

    Such a fulfilling feeling to locate an annoying issue and rectify! Nice job

    Installed seat jackers,… Wow! What a difference in ride comfort! Was skeptical at first and was not looking to sit higher in my seat as I’m 6’1”. Bought the budget option on EBay for $20 (drivers side)

    Did my first personal oil change on this truck (previous service done by dealership)
    What a PITA vs my 2nd Gen. Had to drop my skid plate as the service door hardware has corroded. Guess that’s what I get for buying the AMAZON TRD knockoff.

    Heard that. I have a rattle in the headliner that I’m avoiding going after, but there’s one in the dash somewhere that’s making me crazy

    Be kinda nice to leave the kids at home and do this as a date weekend. Especially with a wall tent and wood burning stove.

    Where did it corrode? I'd like to resolve that before it becomes an issue. The screws? The threaded nuts?

    The screws,… and this is in Southern California weather… next time I do an oil change, I’ll have to drill them out or modify them somehow.

    Tested mx4 for water intrusion into bed while washing. To my surprise almost no water made it into to the bed other that at the tailgate from the pressure washer or garden hose. We had a light rain earlier in the week and I did see some water on the sides of the bed, not enough to get anything wet. So now I have to decide whether it’s worth pulling side rails to seal. Mayde I will wait until we get enough rain to make the roads really wet and see how much gets in.

    Personally, I never load anything into there that I wouldn't be comfortable with getting wet even with the cover. I also utilize Rubbermaid bins for storage when camping which works great for keeping food dry.

    Good to know, thanks. I'll remove mine while they're still new and replace them with SS. I did spray the threads with WD40 before I put them in but I'd feel better with SS now. Tnx!
