    No, the Bumper Filler plate went in perfectly fine for me. I had a bit of trouble with the Transmission skid however: There was a little burr of metal at the corner where it slots into the engine skid plate and wasn't letting it slot in on that side. I had to file that down and then they fit together properly.

    Those skids are awesome. I apologize, and might be wrong, but aren't the green valve stem caps supposed to indicate the tires are nitrogen filled? I thought I read that before, but could be way off, but more curious and hope someone else might be able to confirm... Stay well.

    Yep, I had only recently learned that myself. I had noticed it when I first was checking out the vehicle before buying it and had to look it up. After putting the new tires on, I'm back to normal air in them now.

    There up above 3. I ground of powder coat under mount, and in all screw head pockets and bolted a 8guage wire to the part of bracket inside the bumper and attached it to the frame. I have a solid electrica ground but idk if that’s enough. Picket up some 1/2” braided strap gonna fool with it some more, seems like a lot of people are running them, don’t need it to be super low just not so high it’s gonna smoke my final drive in my radio

    Reposting... misunderstood mounting location in my original reply.

    If you haven’t already, run a wide grounding strap from the antenna mount, down to the frame. You should be able to find an exiting frame bolt to connect the strap at. That might help.

    Also, you try try removing the tunable tip from the antenna completely as well and recheck.

    Yep, you want a wide ground strap, not just a wire. You need a ground plane, not an electrical ground. That should hopefully help.

    I didn't want to get reverse rake since the full eibach kit gives 2.75 of lift in the front. It was hit or miss since some people get reverse rake and others claim to be dead level. So far I'm looking level and waiting for it to settle to see if I get a little rake

    Ride is smooth. No more mushy Stock ride and the dive when you brake is completely gone. No regrets

    A guy brought his brand new 2021 Subaru Crosstrek on the trail ride. I was pretty impressed by it. He stuck around for the 1st 1/3 and then turned back. Probably a good thing, as more ground clearance was really needed, for the rest of the ride.

    Vacuumed the headliner. Pic from mid- vacuuming...clean and dirty visible side by side. Amazing how filthy it gets from driving with all the windows open... probably mostly from having the back window down.

    I don't know about this particular one, but I have the one from AJT Designs. You may wish to just use a Sharpie to black it out, though. Someone here or on the other forum did it, and they got good results for practically free.

    I ordered mine from Toyota dealership. I did find some similar without TRD logo on ebay. There isnt a difference in size, it is just a bad angle
