    Thanks for that. I was only a little worried after I installed everything and then read on the C4 Fab website "up to 2 gallon size Rotopax can be attached"

    I did mount my rotopax closer to the top of the ladder to keep the weight closer to the pivot point. Even with doing that I had to change to stronger struts. Stock ones could not hold the weight. The colder the weather the quicker the hatch would hit me on the head. No issues since changing struts.

    It gave me 2” in the front on the bottom clip,(bought them pre-assembled) and 1” in the back, i used a line laser to measure, the spc’s are set at the +2.0° castor and they rubbed the Mudflaps at full lock , i ended up just taking them off. I love the way it rides and looks now, they should come stock like this

    That looks interesting. Do you think it will be more branch-resistant than the stock grille?

    So ya I think so, or hwy rocks, and debris and leaves. I got the idea from fellas on here who zip tie mount it behind grille for extra protection. I've toyed with mocking it up in front of the grille even.

    I used to race motorcycles and the smell of slicks would turn me on. This pic just gave me that smell.

    My observation based on a small sample size is that, while the probability of error in an Amazon shipment is quite low, after the first snag, the probability of a second error in that delivery is at least three or four times higher than the first. Something is amiss with how well they can get a found package back on its way.

    Wrong house is one of their favorite mistakes. I probably talk to my neighbors more often about misdirected deliveries (mine and theirs) than anything else.

    Yeah I had that to me about a month ago. I ordered a DVD series for "Married with Children" and few small things for the 4R. Well the small items arrived, but the DVDs were not there. Amazon driver took photos of the boxes on the front porch.

    Made request on Amazon to replace the DVDs. And they shipped them right out (no questions asked). Two days later, they arrived.

    About a year ago, a buddy of mine, his birthday was coming up. He had moved across country to Cali into a new apt., and I asked for his new address. Got him his birthday gift off Amazon, and it arrived a day later. Amazon left the package at a locker at his apt complex. He went to go get it, and it wasn't there. He text me saying it wasn't there, and I requested a refund or replacement. And they sent a new one out. Took a couple of extra days. But he got it that time.

    I still think the driver left my DVDs somewhere else and that Amazon driver in Cali stole that birthday gift.

    Perhaps of more real consequence, I have license plate mounting HW incoming. I'm getting antsy driving around with out-of-state temporary tags and out-of-state temporary title and registration. NJ DMV lead time has reportedly gotten back down to two weeks from a pandemic high of four months, so there's a fair chance I'll have them soon.

    @backpacker I don't know how registration itself works in NJ and temp tags. But in MS, you have 7 business days to a vehicle tagged. Now problem comes in when you buy a vehicle from out of state (ie I live south of Memphis and my vehicle was bought from a Memphis used dealership). And it took about 30 days for title and paperwork to get to my county tax assessors office. Sometimes, it takes longer. If you buy in state, you can go straight to the assessors office that day. Just have necessary paperwork.

    Now you wanna talk a REAL mess, Shelby Co. TN (Memphis) is the BIGGEST and most populated county in TN. The tag offices are spread out all over the county. There have been back logs since prob 21. Lines out the door. And there have been days when the offices close so they can "catch up" (whatever that means). The county mayor of Shelby Co. has called the woman in charge of that office to resign (even though she is elected to tax assessor). I'm just glad I don't live there.

    Cool! Let us know if you see any difference in sensor-based driver assist functions.

    Added 20% ceramic all around, except the windshield.

    I am loving the nautical blue myself. :)

    After a good detailing, I installed Diode Dynamics Stage Series reverse lights.. been on my want list since I ordered the rig, and I just picked them up on Memorial Day sale. Looks like the left one is a little sideways .. I'll have to investigate.

    And then some AVS original vent shades. Very happy with the look, but I need to figure out how to get rid of the AVS white lettering on them.PXL_20230602_211325223~2.jpg

    looks good

    maybe it’s just the curve of the bumper or even the tire that makes it seem that way

    acetone or something similar for the lettering

    Installed India's helmet because she will NOT sit in the passenger seat as long as the footwell is empty. Maybe it's because she is still a puppy at 14 months old, or she fears falling through the abyss of the footwell as she cannot define the bottom, and likely she'll grow out of it. Because when the void is occupied, like when we traveled to Guatemala, she's comfortable sitting in the passenger seat. Nonetheless, for now, I cut up a styrofoam cooler to fit the space. Maybe later an outside opening to take advantage of the space underneath for storage. (By the way, before the Internet bans me for life, by helmet, I mean safety helmet; like one to ride a tricycle.)

    Looks good! At the rear, do you have 20% on top of the privacy glass, or did you have them match so the final result would give 20%
