    Not surprised that they took something that is a healthy snack and turned it into crap. Sounds gross. Hopefully you don’t get the squirts like the usual post Taco Bell dining experience. :fingerscrossed:

    Don’t get me wrong I was very happy with the 8100 smooth bodies on road. Most plush ride I’ve ever had but they didn’t extend much off road and caused me to lose lots of needed traction and not able to get the gains of my hammer hangers

    Upgraded the grill, mirror signals, and installed the new Joying headunit this weekend. Pretty good improvement to the sound on the stock speakers, but still planning to swap kickers in the front and add a 10" sub.

    Spark Plugs @ 58.5k miles.

    First time spark plug change for this 2021 v6

    Everything looked normal except ignition Coil #4. The spark plug was loose and it visibly had oil.
    IMG_5698.HEIC.jpg
    IMG_5697.HEIC.jpg

    Here is the gap upon removal.
    IMG_5696.HEIC.jpg

    Ignition coil
    IMG_5694.HEIC.jpg IMG_5695.HEIC.jpg

    Could it be valve cover gasket leaking or it just came undone on its own?
    No misfires either.
    I reused the ignition coil and I know there is still some oil residue in #4.
    I'll keep an eye on it

    I had all 3 extremely loose on the passenger side and a couple on drivers side slightly loose from the factory. Same oil mess on the threads. Swapping them out made a huge improvement. :rolleyes:

    Any recommendations for auxiliary powered devices/equipment except lights, winch, or compressor?

    He meant HIGHLY VISIBLE, so that people will walkup to his truck constantly and ask questions.
