    A nice cheap alternative is paint example cards from home depot. They look at you funny when you grab a stack plus they stand out a Lil bit further.

    Oh added a snorkel today.

    Pulled all wheels to check torque on my spacers. While I had them off, checked all the suspension components I installed a few months ago to make sure everything was good. Then bought a t55 Torx to tighten the bed bolts, and ended the day with a wash.

    Oil change light is on, so I'll have to take care of that in a day or two.
