    I also purchased the bar/gril/lights from them. The waiting is the hardest part.

    I finished gluing my Rooftop shower together, sanded it down and bed-linered it. It holds pressure great- enough to get some nice water flow... I will test mount it and fill it up with water in the next day. It should heat up nicely and provide a shower or two when out adventuring.

    LOL- both of those pics suck pretty bad. I suppose my next mod should be the good camera mod, followed by a location upgrade.

    Does KDSS affect mounting of sliders at all? Like are there kdss and non-kdss sliders?

    Actually it does since the KDSS lines run down the frame and have skid plates to protect those lines and pump on the frame.

    Here is a write up on installing C4Fab sliders...scroll down to the section about KDSS vs non-KDSS.

    This is correct I was just looking at sliders today and noticed that some of the bolt on type are kdss compatible

    Nope,
    We actually plated the new girl & in the lovely state of Nebraska that is a bill to the tune of $4k. Those are some expensive stickers under there! Lol
    Now the center console matches something! Haha20190408_201342.jpg

    Just did the RSG sliders on my KDSS equipped ride last weekend.
    Front skid comes off an you have to move the lines just a tad. Not hard at all. An they have even more protection with sliders!

    Welp, I went to the tire shop today and set-up an appointment to put some 285's on. Really looking forward to this upgrade. Wish I could have done it sooner, but that's how I feel about all of my mods. I went with Firestone Destination A/Ts. They go on next week. Pics to follow.

    I also just received the PlastiDip I ordered. Hopefully I can derp some emblems this weekend.

    Installed the PT413-42191 toyota led fogs, fitment was perfect and also love the output, very sharp cutoff. just need to aim them a bit lower. but overall impressed.

    Worth the cost for the upgrade? I've debated picking these up, too.

    Hey all,

    Saw the reference to canvasbacks regarding the modular storage system. I have a couple of dogs and want to learn more about the liner incorporated with the RAGO panels. I have the modular panels and the liner fabric is just the ticket to jumpstart the panel install. Can you good folks steer me to the product in this pick. Thanks in advance.

    Added about 200hp today. Emblems came out fine, but the letters have bubble's (will try some old wall paper tricks on them or just remove them). Wish they did the letters in the same wet application as the emblems. Why is there no place to get black chrome badges for these things?

    You can do any decal wet. Give a few days in The sun some will disappear - worst case you can needle the bubble and it should relax out

    Since I'm waiting for the temperature to get back up to where I can paint I'm just doing some prep work for another project I decided to start before the others are finished.

    Picked up a spare set of roof side rails and end caps. My plan was to paint the end caps black and then go get the rails either powder coated or anodized. The guy I bought them from seemed very knowledgeable and talked me into doing it myself using SEM-39143 Trim Black paint. I'm finding a lot of positive reviews for this stuff. Didn't sound like you even needed to coat it with a clear to protect it.

    Has anyone here used it? Did you have good results? Any tips?

    I don't have a heat gun so I decided to put the rail under some hot water for a couple minutes to get the position stickers off. Worked like a charm.

    20190412_172152.jpg

    Note the gum container propping it up on one end. I didn't do that to the other side and the water got inside the rail and traveled all the way over the counter......doh

    Almost done with my ride. I want to black out my roof rails and bumper valances. I was thinking the easiest way was to have them vinyl wrapped.
    Last I was going to add CAI just because I can.
    I want to add a TRD Pro skid plate but the dealer said there were issues installing it with the way they did my Ready Lift so I don’t know.

    Well. I got my Pro grill replacement in the mail this weekend. I think I’m going to wait to install it at the same time I plasti-dip my balances and black out the emblems. Still waiting on the SSO rack. So I can’t sell my OEM black roof rack and rails yet. Still looking for running boards/sliders. I think I like the RSG. However, after my taxes, I get to install the new Pioneer w8400NEX radio! I just had the dash kit painted and it looks really good. I tried wrapping it... $250 to have it painted was worth it.
