    On the front, did you cut out the center to accommodate the manual locks or was there an aftermarket solution floating about eBAY? Looks clean! Nice job.

    Well i'd hope so haha

    I've had really bad results in general with any traction mat things. When they do work it's nice. But most the time they don't. at least not in snow due to everything just being a bit slick. Idk. I stopped carrying them.

    I drilled a hole, then carefully used a dremel with a router bit, to follow the outline that’s there. Then hand sanded the rough edge

    This is true. I had some on my 2nd gen V6 and absolutely loved them. I just wish they weren't more expensive for the 3.4

    46C30E5F-C7CB-4384-AA62-70DE5E7F711D.jpg Just Raptor lined my 95 Taco. Turned out great. The color is Federal Standard 36300 (Aircraft gray). Same color as the F-16. Also put on “new” wheels. Still need to add decals and fender flares too.

    Some lessons learned:
    - I went to the auto store and they color matched the tint into a spray paint which I used on the jambs. Very helpful.
    - Get just a little more than you expect and inventory when it gets there. I got 8 but they shorted me one bottle somehow. I didn’t notice until I was 3 bottles in. Had to stop and go in town the next day to get another bottle. Ended up w buying 4 because that all they had.
    - Standard truck stuff but it took me a couple days longer than I expected.
    - Prep, prep.

    apparently it's a well know problem. Has been for years. Doesn't seem to have really improved much.

    I looked at the spot next to the factory locker and was worried about it being to tight behind the dash so i put mine in the lower trim panel. Easy peasy.
