    Cabin Air Filter and K&N air Filter in the 09. Sounds like it can breathe better. Old Filters were nasty.

    3" lift, custom rims, snug top shell, shrockworks bumper, warn winch.
    Sharp edges are top and bottom. Pinch points are between the rollers. I know you'll disagree about running synthetic rope across oxidized rollers but that's another source of abrasion.

    When you're pulling, you will ideally pull so these things aren't a problem but extreme angles are not uncommon and a piece of CNC machined metal is a lot better protection against abrasion than a set of rollers for synthetic rope.

    Synthetic rope is pretty tough stuff but abrasion is its worst enemy. You might want to read up on synthetic rope and see what the manufacturer suggests you use. Do you absolutely need to use a Hawse style fairlead? No. But doing so helps prevent abrasion.

Moving it forward to the "E" +1 setting is going to give me that crucial inch I need to keep me from major trimming and CMC, much rather trim out, or zip tie back the front plastic lining than getting the plasma cutter warmed up..:cool:

    Well I am not putting my new Bull Bar on. Just missed FedEx with my Aries Bull Bar. I have not left the house for 3 days solid. Ran out for one hour and they came.

    UPS leaves stuff every week on the front porch no problem, not FedEx. I even have a signed note on my door asking them to leave stuff.

    OK, mini rant over.

    replaced my OEM engine air filter with a AFE pro dry drop in. Easy installation, and immediately felt more responsiveness when accelerating from a stop. The old filter was pretty dirty and I thought the truck felt sluggish from the get go- just assumed it was due to the lift. We shall see if it improves MPG.
