    That's a horrible idea. What time?
    There are a couple of discussions on here that I couldn't find, but I think it boils down to they have to prove that the modifications caused the issue being reported or claimed. My dealer regularly does suspension mods on new untitled trucks (and marks them way up). And they honor the warranty for the truck. I would think if the mods are installed correctly it shouldn't be an issue. The other choice is to have them install it. More money, but if they warranty their work, it shouldn't be an issue. If they don't, find another service center for your truck.

    Nothing yet :(
    You’re definitely on to something here!

    For one I do not like the stock wheels, so that’ll be the first to go if I can get some kind of agreement from them.
    After that is upgraded suspension :)

    I would do a bit more research on here before you take my word as gold. But I don't think that wheels would pose an issue for you. You could always do the Pro wheels if you're worried about the dealership and warranty. One thing to remember is that they are there to make money. If they don't think they will get the approval, or don't want to try, they won't. I am fortunate that my dealer (a mere three day drive for you, one way...) is not like that at all. They want happy customers to bring in new customers.

    Can these swing cases be left in the "out" position while driving? I mean swung out and left across the tailgate rather than the bedside. Seems like the way the top opens, might be easier to access stuff over the tailgate than the bed. Al I seeing that wrong? Does the top hinge closer to the bedside, or the inside?

    If you put 40" mudders on it and it destroys your suspension or anything else, that wouldn't be covered under warranty. You're obviously gonna be fine if you get new tires.

    Are there any hoses connected to it? It looks like a fuel vapour canister, but that's just an educated guess.

    It looks like it is the Leak Detection Pump which appears to be part of the Evaporative Emission Control system...

    About 6 hours to remove and mask everything. Then like 2 hours to spray it and put it back together. Not bad really lol

    The temps have been sub-freezing here - and in my garage - for the last week. I finally took a hair dryer out with me and installed the Spotter Mirrors. Simple process - I followed the recommendation of someone else here and after tilting the OEM mirror all the way up, just grabbed the bottom with my hands and popped the bottom clips out instead of using a pry tool. The top comes out easily after that. The rest is just transferring the wires and popping the new mirror back into the retainer. The hardest part was getting the heater wires off the original mirror - they clamp on pretty snugly. I ended up using a small flat tip screwdriver to pry the clips gently up and off. 10 to 15 minute job including heating up the plastic a bit with the hair dryer.

    After installation, I took the truck out on the highway to better adjust the mirrors and test the BSM function. All works well and I much prefer the views you get with the Spotter mirrors. No regrets on this mod.

    Oh, and I also managed to get this mod done - hardest one yet but I give it a +15 Hp gain.

    Probably a dumb question - but I plan to finally start getting into overland adventures this summer. All of my previous summers with my Taco have evolved around Travel baseball trips.

    Is there a handheld alternative to a cb radio? I tried to do some research, but I am just not educated or aware of radio frequencies and such.

    GMRS seem to be the most common. You can try something like this. GL!

    Edit: you said CB handheld, so you may be looking for something like this or this

    I guess it doesn't count for today, but I did install a pedal commander and re-installed my SSPv2. Seemed like the right thing to do. Anyone doing tunes in the Hampton Roads area?
