    A while ago I installed matte finish AVS in channel rain guards, and I was commenting on the job a TW member did rubbing off the AVS logo using some 0000 steel wool, on the same rain guards. It's come up a few times where people are trying to find ways to rub off the logo.

    Looks good to me. I bought mine used. Was fortunate to find a Taco owner that was going with a hard topper. One mod I did do for the cover was add 3/4" foam pipe wrap to the cross bars. This helps with water runoff and also fills in that gap a bit so it doesn't flap as much at highway speeds.

    I’m ok with foreign owned companies that make tires in the USA, and many do. Tire codes indicate where made, you can google for the codes.
    “That amount is on the rise, as more factories are being constructed in America. BFGoodrich, Bridgestone, Continental, Cooper, Firestone, General, Goodyear, Hankook, Kelly, Kumho, Michelin, Mickey Thompson, Nexen, Nitto, Toyo, and Yokohama currently manufacture tires here in America.”

    Thanks to those saying to not bash the driver. I had a new 2008 Tacoma as well back in the day. The tires back then had way more tread depth than these Wranglers on mine today. Those back then I actually sucked 40K miles out of them. Did the chalk test for pressure and stayed on the rotation and balancing. These, I already have 12K miles on them and they are at about 1/4" tread depth left now. Once these wear out they will be replaced with Hankook AT tires. My first set on the 2008 I got 73K miles out of them. Had two sets after as well, about 65K on the 2nd set and about 63K on the 3rd set.

    I don't have a problem with that either. That quote was information of "American Owned" manufactures.
    I've also ordered and bought a ass load of Coker Tires as well for my classic customers. Cory is as American as you can get.

    Do yourself a favor in the long run and just buy the molded-in-black SR bezel trim.

    I hated the hexagon/honeycomb grilles when they came out on the 71-72 and then the early 2000’s model Mustangs, or the dozens of other cars that have had that overused ugly style. “Oh look bob, ANOTHER car with a honeycomb grille”.
    A screen is better than that. So is my SR grille for that matter lol. To each their own. ;)

    Been working on installing a slider for my fridge in the bed next to my water can. Also decided since my water can covers my drivers cubby I installed a water pump so I can get water from my water can easier, pics coming soon. Oh and a USB led bar in the RTT as my USB fairy lights almost caught fire when I was in Yellowstone a few weeks ago.

    I managed to snag one in cement. Anyone have any idea what it’s going to cost to get the key cut?

    Any thoughts on how these compare to the Baja designs? They look similar and I am planning to get a set soon.

    Yes, you are not wrong, but only if the new taller bump stops are made of cement like the stock ones. These new longer ones have more give and absorb the impact progressively. Same amount of travel, it will just get to the end of the travel at a smoother rate.
    But really if the hit is hard enough, you are going to feel it.
