    Lomax seems to be the most popular choice for a trifold. I have the bakflip x4s, but if I were to buy again I would go with a shell for the extra space.

    There's usually a mega thread for Black Friday sales. Someone should start a new one for the upcoming President's Day sales. :notsure:

    Finished the install of the R4T dash piece to incorporate the auxbeam. So that project is now done. Ordered a set of ditch lights to try out and waiting for snow to clear and a warmer day so I can hack the bumper off and add the high clearance bumper.

    My wife got me the Rough country high clearance bumper with 20” light bar and 9500lb winch as a gift. Should look like this when I’m done as long as I don’t screw up my cuts.

    Nice. Doesn’t look too difficult. Just be sure to double check your measurements. BTW, you’ve got a keeper! :thumbsup:

    Thanks yeah she has been good to me this year. Been ok with me doing a bunch to my truck all at once. Put off any mods for 4 years to make 100% sure I was keeping the truck long term. Now I’ve lifted, new tires and wheels, black out rear bumper panels, black side steps, new exhaust, OTT tune, ditch lights, and auxbeam switch kit. Going to take a break for a while and work on posting all the take offs so I can recoup a little cash. Then next mod I’d like is a roof rack and a rear topper rack for some extra space. That will probably be a next year project though this year I just need to do another application of undercoating and do 30k service.

    Which radio did you get? I purchased the MXT115 micromobile and love it. At times I wish I’d have gotten the 50 watt radio but so far the 15 watt has done shockingly well at reaching the repeater where I didn’t think it would.

    That’s good to hear because I also purchased the MXT115 Micromobile with the 3db Gain Ghost Antenna. Which antenna are you using? I also have a 4’ Firestik antenna for my Uniden PRO505XL CB, and got a reading of 1 on ch1 and ch20 and a reading of 1.2 on ch40 with my SWR meter.

    Right now just the standard antenna. I have an antenna that was built by my dad that I’m gonna try this upcoming season but I wanted to see what the standard antenna could get me. One of the local repeaters here is pretty good and I can reach it about 70 miles away with the base antenna. It does start to get a little static but can easily transmit. Very pleased with an affordable option!

    Sweet. Let me know how your dad’s antenna works out. Not sure I can use the Firestik because of frequency range.

    Will do! He’s a HAM and GMRS guy so he’s way more into it than I am, I’m not smart when it comes to all the internal workings of these radios. I guess it’s an antenna he bought and tuned it to GMRS…added a spring and pivot elbow. So these GMRS antennas get trimmed to tune. As far as a firestick, it may be able to be tuned to the GMRS ranges, not sure…would be interesting to find out. I love the firestick brand from my CB days
