    What if you took one of those water soluble white markers like they write on windshields with and use it like you would a high spot blue. Paint the suspected areas with it and see what rubs off. Car wash brush with some soap or a high pressure wand wash to remove. Just a thought!

    That's not a bad idea. I thought about lining the wheel well with sticky white shelf paper, but it probably wouldn't actually stick to anything for long.

    Well, this is interesting... Spray White Chalk

    Washes off with water. Relatively cheap, too.

    Bought a winch today $250 with HF coupon. Not a warn, but A winch is better than no winch. Waiting for my SSO bumper to arrive. Cannot wait!

    If you’re good about testing then checking immediately you might be able to get away with just using baby powder.

    Congratulations and good luck with your new winch. Harbour freight gets a bad rap a lot of times and sometimes for good reason. Then there are other times when one is pleasantly surprised with the performance of what they've purchased. I've done well with the items I've bought there. I heard some good things about the winches from others. I hope and expect you will do well with yours. I have come close to buying one myself on a couple of occasions. The price is certainly right.

    Heck yeah man !! That winch will be great. Unless you are winching every single day and are just a hardcore wheeler you dont need a $1500 winch. Congrats on your winch and your bumper bud !!

    Installed the Bestop Supertop 2 today on the taco! I like the new revision of this snugs up the tailgate nice and tight.

    Let us know how you like that winch. I've been meaning to pick one up but have been a little skeptical.

    It took us a little over 2 hours to install with the two of us. Definitely let the box warm up a bit inside before stretching the fabric on. I watched a video and followed the instructions went smooth.

    The bed rug doesn't hold moisture. I've had mine for a two Winters with no issues. As everybody knows the factory cover leaks along the sides so the bed rug does get wet, but it dries quickly and doesn't smell.
