    Gave each driveshaft zerk a few pumps of that delicious cherry flavored Mobil 1 synthetic grease.


    *disclaimer: Mobil 1 synthetic grease may or may not actually be cherry flavored, but it is a nice shade of red :p

    *disclaimer 2: I do not recommend tasting Mobil 1 synthetic grease :confused:

    Really hope I don't miss the GX too much once I take delivery of mine. I know wife is going to be pissed. It really is great, I just want more tech in the car.

    Bought a matching spare wheel/tire finally. Black Rhino Warlord + Wildpeak AT3W. Also had a Bilstein 5160 replaced under warranty. Yay. Necessary, but not necessarily fun stuff!

    Yes. Very easy install. Probably used a lighter touch than needed in hindsight, but was afraid to break a lens or frame. Came with a plastic removal tool, but I ended up using my Swiss army keychain screwdriver/file more.

    Not today, but I recently put the TRD pro roof rack on my SR5 4WD. I get criticism for these racks but I just really love the look of them. Overall I just wanted the option to put my luggage up there and this rack will do fine for that purpose.

    Received the 5-gallon Wavian Jerry Can I had ordered...and now trying to figure out where in the hell I'm going to mount this at on my vehicle. *laughs*

    I also finally received the last* skid plate on my list: Rear Diff skid. Hopefully I have better luck installing it than I did the T-case skid.

    *Until I suddenly decide that I need the LCA and link skids:help:

    Nice set up! What is your opinion on the Rockpower panels? I have been contemplating those and the portable power station. Living in the desert, I have concerns about using a solar controller, and in reality most likely do not need one. Thanks!

    Looks good. I don't think you can even buy the Superlite anymore due to material cost and supply

    Thanks! Yeah there's a massive ordering for it. I heard they are into next year already for the Superlite lead times. I bought mine last year in mid November. It was supposed to be here in April but material delayed it quite a bit.

    IMG_4892.jpg Got this installed today after sitting in my garage for a month or so....the original got torn from my last excursion. This skid plate is much sturdier. I know I need to upgrade my tires too.

    My kids gave me a Pedal Commander for Fathers Day and OMG! I never dreamed I could love my truck more than I did before but this is a game changer. I also ordered an LED interior light kit but it’s not in yet.

    Install was not very difficult at all. Just need to use a lot of care and go slow when you're drilling through the back to access the threading for the bolts. there's a DIY writeup on the other forum that takes you through all the steps. It's worth reading the entire thread b/c there are people that give good suggestions on how to bore out the hole you have to drill. I ended up getting a small grinder bit for my drill from home depot for $5.00 so that I didn't mess up the threading.

    I know there's a lot of conversation about whether it's worth the $300. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and I won't argue with someone who wants to keep their money. But for me it's maybe the best mod I've put on. I was shocked at how much difference it made and I continue to be.

    Edit: Response to Fish pro's Pedal Commander comment.

    Pinstripes, lots of em. Plus a couple dents.
    Sorry I missed this follow up post of yours.
    I can get about 3 fingers under my standard LFD crossbars:
    LFD cross bar 3 fingers.jpg

    I believe LFD recommends Front Runner mounting points for Roof Top Tents. Not sure if they would work for what you want to mount.

    A buddy of mine, I met at an Overland Get Together also has LFD crossbars. He mounted his Maxtraks and a knockoff pelican case up there:

    Though I love the St Maxx, they have have an annoying right hand pull. It's kind of a common issue if you look it up. Besides that, amazing tire. Mud, rocks, and snow were no challenge for those tires.

    Looking to go 295's also. Did you have to do a lot of cutting on the front bumper?
