    Installed extended rear diff breather. And yes I tightened the ziptie and clipped the end.

    Extending the diff breather helps when making water crossings to prevent water getting sucked inside the differential when it contracts from the quick cool off from the water. This will instead breathe in air.

    I'm really liking this decal. Love the bear, but would love an elk even more! What do you charge for a custom set?

    Yeah I used the ARB. I didn’t run mine to the gas area but instead to the front of the vehicle.

    Friday towed boat to Beltzville State Park. Definitely frt floats W/Eibachs set @ 0.85 on frt. on highway W/275x70x17's Cooper Discoverer ST/MAXX when trucks pass by. Today used it to get to buddies property for some .22 & .45ACP target shooting! Oil change & Tire rotation next weekend, 50k mi. The way I'm commuting currently I got another 2 yrs before my 75-85k mi range for trade in. Not sure what will be to my liking by then??

    How heavy is the tongue? I just towed 1100 highway miles and didn't have any issue with front float when passing or being passed by trucks. Wondering if you have a heavy tongue that's unloading the front end (I use air bags to compensate).

    Not sure as of tongue wt. I had NO issues W/Stock suspension, just after I wanted to level it out & putting the Eibach's set @ 0.85 frt. I can live W/it because I only tow boat MAX 2 times away from our normal weekend day trip on the turnpike.

    Blacked out badges, window deflectors, smoked 3rd brake light. I have a Borla muffler on order as well as some color matched engine cover stickers. I'll be painting the stock wheels soon as well. Falken tires in the fall as well.
    Drove it from NY to NC. 640 miles with over 1,000 lbs of stuff loaded in it. 19.2 average MPG not babying it. Made it in 9 1/2 hours. This thing was made for driving the distance it's the 6th time I've made this trip and it really is comfortable for the long distance.

    Ditto and also prevents the breather from getting corroded or caked up with dirt and mud while offroading preventing the axle from venting correctly.

    Maybe consider getting a set of airbag helpers for the rear. Infinitely adjustable and cheap safety feature for towing limits.

    Added a remote start and TRD exhaust yesterday. The remote start is awesome but I'm iffy about the exhaust. It still needs to break in.

    Does the TRD exhaust prevent the exhaust smell when the back window is down?

    Yes it helps. But don't go off buying a trd exhaust just because the side exit. Just find a good muffler shop to bend the tailpipe.

    I honestly didn't notice it before but that's one of the main reasons I went with it. Probably a ton cheaper to have a bent pipe made like mentioned.

    Even as a vehicle used off road, it would probably be not be many that would taken it through water deep enough to to submerge the breather. It’s located a few inches above the hub, which is the same level as the bottom of the opening of the doors.

    That said, it’s reasonable insurance…
