    I don’t know if this is true or not, but my dealer told me that the Pro models are checked by two people instead of the regular single check. So there are 2 colors of paint everywhere:

    The camera specs should list an amperage or wattage draw. Usually pretty low like 3 - 5. If you can't find the exact specs, start with 3.

    So, for all of your with PTS in your truck, I know that if the key fob die, drowns or chewed, there is a key in it to get you in the truck.
    So how do you use that key to start the truck???

    I openly store large stacks of cash in my bed with a sign that reads “Help Yourself”, solves the problems with people stealing my clamps and other debris from my open bed.

    According to the manual....You can hold a dead Key FOB up to the ignition push-button for a few seconds and crank the truck.

    Nice job using diagonal plyers to trim the tie wraps, I hate when guys do a sloppy job and leave the tails on. Clean, professional job.

    This. Pay off the mortgage when you die (hence the "mort" in mortgage).

    Hum, that is a conundrum...if I foolishly blow my wad on the skewp, is that a tax deductible contribution to a PAC?

    Do you have any trouble with your head clearing the headliner or seeing out of the rear view mirror after raising the rear of the seat? I noticed my rear view mirror does not tilt up enough as it is and I see a lot of tailgate.

    I may have to ban myself for using a political abbreviation, suggesting a buy without a pic and going off topic all in one question. Yo, trollers, give me the hammer!

    ok, back on topic, notable mod to my 3rd gen today is I did not spend any time wrenching today

    With keyed ignition, if the fob portion is destroyed, you won't be able to start the truck either. :notsure:

    I second that comment, looks like some kind of thread repair, not Loc-tite.

    I'm 3/4 the way through my SDHQ hidden winch mount install. Probably 6 hours in but that included a stoppage for dinner, catching up on the latest episode of the Mandalorian with the wife and a visit from a coworker. Down to cutting the bumper skin and drilling 2 holes for the side bracket then it'll be time to put everything back on. So far it's been a pretty straight forward install. Operator error is the only thing I've ran into so far...

    And that operator error was on the control box relocation kit, the link was dead on SDHQ's website for the install instructions so I called them and asked them to e-mail them to me. That slowed me down for 2 hours waiting and trying to figure it out from their youtube video. Then once I had it mounted I realized the instructions were in fact in the bottom of the box...lol Luckily I had it on right but it took me some longer because I had to stop and think through everything.

    Thanks man. I debated for a while myself before I just went ahead and did it. I’m happy with the results.

    Looks very suspicious to me. Usually Loctite would be on the threads, and something like Glyptol applied to the head but only to mark it to indicate tampering or being loosened.
