    I have to say, tele health has been great for consultantions. I hope my providers keep it as an option going forward for the easier appointments. Hope you get to go in more as things improve. :thumbsup:

    I put a Curt front hitch receiver on my truck the first week I had it. I cut slots in the air dam per the instructions and re-installed — that was at least half the work. The springy things that came with the kit for fishing the bolts through were the key to making the actual install pretty easy. Torque wrench is required if you’re going to follow the instructions to the letter. Easy job, didn’t take more than an hour and I’m not very efficient.

    It’s def convenient and has its place for minor things, but also has a lot of limitations as far as physical assessment. Yeah, a lot of the older ones don’t like to do it, I think moving forward it will def have its place.

    Took my air damn off. Finally

    I was trying to take off some bolts to install a light bar, I ended up dropping my stubby ratchet. Then I heard a sound of it hitting plastic and I couldn't see the ratchet. Looking all over I finally started to hit different parts of the truck to see if I can hear it. I hit the front of the bumper near the license plate. I hear the sound of the ratchet. So it was between the bumper and the crash bar. No idea how it got there, but I got to take the bumper and air damn off. I put the bumper back on and liked the look of no air damn. Think I spent 40 mins looking for that damn ratchet... of course it had a 10mm Socket on it

    Thx for the input. Yeah I noticed it was a little spendy and comprised of multiple purchase parts. I was just looking for something a little more practical for my purposes. I don't plan to be hauling a bunch of attached stuff (axe, gas cans, rtt, etc) everyday rather than only when I intend to use. Having the height option to haul other stuff is cool.

    I did this same thing to put extra pressure but my focus was on the front corners because I’ve had a window snag before and chipped the visor
    ive looked at these for yrs. is the tip metal with a rubber cap? My worry is the metal core scraping on the wheel but not sure that’s a concern or not if the bristles are long and thick enough

    That's a horrible idea. What time?
    Finally got my roof rack installed. Between work, weather, and some stupidity which resulted in some self inflicted damage, this just took way too long. Tribute to the Marines who landed at Iwo Jima 76 years ago.

    I have the TRD OR so no air dam to get rid of.

    I went with the Draw-Tite due to the higher vertical rating than the Curt. The Install was easy. Just put the front up on ramps and was able to access everything. Used it already this winter with my Snowsport plow.

    The way the video was edited, I better understand why kids can have epileptic seizures while playing video games.

    Talk about being force fed the up-sell.

    I did the ECT relocate mod with an ECT extension from @trdtacomabob which can be purchased here https://kabowest.com
    The extension is set up to reach the driver side switch cubby area, opening up a switch spot on the center dash console.
    I relocated the switch on the center console next to the E-Brake, thanks to @oostroma fo the positioning idea. Also added a 2nd switch spot for future installs.
    Install video will be up on the channel by tomorrow.

    I put the oem aluminum running boards back on and got me some oem mud flaps. So far I’m liking the look of the mud flaps and running boards together.700ABB2B-0C99-41A7-82EB-520E5C79C783.jpg F188ED9D-1417-4D5E-92F0-D130DBFF5EEA.jpg
