    TBH I think the tech told you what you wanted to hear. They do make something called Dynapad that I am surprised he didn't try to sell you on, it basically is like a jute padding replacement. Something you can easily add in the future if you want since it doesn't get permanently glued down.

    FWIW I have weather tech digital fits in over my vinyl. They don't move and aren't slippery. Without them I think I would wear the vinyl out much quicker.

    Finished welding up the True North bumper. Just need to blend the corners and drop it off for powder coat. Been a decade plus since I did any real fabrication or welding, it’s slowly coming back.

    well considering there isn't really anything that makes the front coilovers side specfic other than lining up the top bolts, I'd say they are a bunch of dumb asses and I wouldn't want them to touch a single vehicle I own or any one I know either.

    Then my converter must be ready to die, I've replaced that PITA O2 sensor with OEM at least three times. Love those rusty nuts, in that heat shield.

    At the end of December, my air outlet servo began clicking and slipping. Ordered a new one and replaced it. I don't know WHY one just can't buy a replacement servo without having to buy the servo with metal bracket assembly.
    Anyhow....the air mix blend door servo just started grinding and clicking. So replaced that today. Contortionist repairs to be sure....

    Installed a 3 degree axle shim to hopefully remove driveshaft vibration after a recent suspension upgrade / lift. It's kind weird that the emergency brake cable now rests on the leaf spring, I don't remember it being like that pre-shim. I wonder if there's a fix.
