    Installed d rings on bed bolts closest to cab. Took me all day. Had to attach a 4 ft copper pipe to 24" breaker for leverage. Crap those bolts are ridiculous tight and long! Couldn't get washers off so just used a bench grinder and took off one side so d ring would slide on. Hands are all cramping and back is killing me so no pics. Hard for me to figure out how to do that anyway. Just wanted to brag that I did it for an arthritic 70+

    stock a fawk!
    Did my spark plugs. Why did the passenger side take 35 minutes and the driver, 3 hours!?
    Also. Two had blow by and weren’t completely tight. On a truck that’s been dealer maintained most of its life. That’s what I get for being “too busy” to do it myself.

    I’ve been stockpiling parts since I got the truck last June…today I took andvantage of the sunny day and installed the center console tray-arrived without instructions…docked one star. ZPrecision cupholder-now my Red Bull cans fit. MESO bucket, Morimoto license plate lights, VLEDS V6 Extreme Tails, VLEDS interior lights, and a Diode Dynamics C1R Hitchpod. Word of advice for the taillight conversion…they specify using the tougher rubber seal for the reverse lights-give them a good crush before you install, or you’ll shred your fingers trying to rotate them to lock.

    Just routine spring things, every season done.
    Clean up and ceramic spray;
    Summer wheels on.
    Out of schedule things:
    New MX4 Bac Flip lid (replaced under warranty by BakFlip, great job, thank you, guys!)
    Tailgate rubber seal installed, after today's test drive on dusty gravel road - passed 100%, dust leak is minimal.
    Everything done in last 7 days,
    and yea'h new bed mat - simple thick mat from CanTire, cost 100 Cad, works perfect for me!

    Was a link of forum to Amazon. Can't remember manufacturer and details, sorry. But, package contains two different products, two different ways to seal the box. Choice
    is on you.

    Not the OP, this is the one I used: Amazon.com: ESI Ultimate Tailgate Seal with Taper Seal 10ft for use with Truck Caps and Tonneau Covers : Automotive
    I have no idea if there are better ones or not, I can just say it did work and it stays stuck. They had a set of videos or instructions for various trucks and it took a moment of pondering to figure out exactly how to put it on the sides of the bed for the side edges of the tailgate.
