    Yes. It's a thin metal cap that's on the back of the companion flange. Looks to be a debris guard for the pinion seal. Apparently it's easy to bend when you drag the rear diff housing over rocks.

    Ok, the General Lee reference is pretty funny.
    Thanks on the color, I was shopping for a red truck, but found this one on the used lot w/ color matched topper for $12,000 less and decided burnt orange *was* my color after all. :cool:

    It wasn't today but yesterday; I tore my drivers side front mud flap off backing through a ditch....pisses me off. I didn't look too close but it appears some type of plastic screw holds (held) it on??

    Yes look under the flare, you can see the flap mounted to it. I took mine off a few days later after I got the truck from the dealership lot.

    Ordered a Dometic CFX3 45 last Wednesday and it arrived a day early! I have Toyota bed mat and Diamondback cover. The Dometic just fits under the cover. I'd need some feeler gauges to measure the space.

    The antenna is a Tram 1181. I am not very pleased with it's current performance. Was planning on mounting it and my CB antenna on ditch light mounts. Didn't realize the NMO cable will not fit though the hole on the ditch light mounts, and there is not enough metal there to drill it out to make it fit. So as a temporary solution I took the bracket that came with it and attached it to a existing bolt in the bed and ran the cable to the cab though the led blank.

    Since the ditch light mount didn't work out, my new plan is to mount it on my roof rack once I get one. So it's just kinda there for the moment. My understanding it the best place to mount it is dead center in the roof of the cab by drilling a hole. Your roof then acts as a ground plane. I don't want to drill in my roof, and I am not yet sure what I am going to do for the roof rack. There is a HAM radio BS tread around here that has much more knowledgeable peeps in than I in regards to HAM radio.

    IMO, the mud flaps on the 3rd gen are designed to tear right off as soon as you take the truck off road. I replaced mine with these which are a bit cheaper than the popular RokBlokz.
