Private sale on my 2014.
Picking up my 2018 tomorrow.
Shout out to Jim Trenery in Union Mo for advertising crazy low prices and my local dealer actually price matching! Local dealer didn’t have pearl so got the silver.

Installed High Country grill.  Hardest part was transferring the illuminated bowtie over.  Happy with the new look.

Did a test load today with the kids bike, and my new Polaris. Fit, and test drive went great! Now we are ready for the woods...

No, we did not strap down where you see, that is only to take up the loose ends of the straps, too bad the lens had white dots all over it, would have been a great pick. Having the lift installed Monday, can't wait!

Swapped a differential cover on my 2018 with 7k, just because. There was no build up of metal shavings, just typical fine black and gray microscopic stuff on the factory magnets (one on the housing, one on the factory cover). 

I replaced it with a B&M 71506, because I was intrigued by the addition of load bolts to prevent deflection. Since I like to accelerate hard, I figured this would balance out some of the "wear and tear" I cause. It definitely makes fluid changes more expensive (4 quarts, instead of 2), but easier since it has a drain hole. I reused the factory gasket, but had to modify it a little to work around the new drain hole location. Just trimmed some rubber, no metal.

Took a week, but built two racks to hold the toys for vacation. Also modified a mount for some Thule square bars I bought used for $25.

Haven't posted anything in a while but just had the truck in the shop this past week for some major upgrades. 4 inch BDS with DSC Coilovers and rear leaf packs. 2 inch Bora spacers in the rear for balance. Steps sprayed with Line-X (chrome was chipping). 20x9 +24 Snow Flakes in Gunmetal with machine finish. 295/60r20 Nitto Ridge Grapplers. And the hidden gem behind the wheels...Wilwood brakes all around. I also had the exhaust done but it's way too loud for me so going back Monday for a muffler swap.

Spent about an hour this morning putting back on my side steps (wife was complaining of the difficulty getting into the truck easily without them) and installed the new trimmed lower air deflector (HUGE thanks to @Mikeb52r for coming over yesterday and being a dremel ninja).

Took off the front license plate holder. Much better. The holes are too small to notice unless you get close at ground level. IMG_3512.JPG

So today we drove 2.5 hrs to the other side of the state to drop off the kid and his bike mounted as you see in the pic, with a couch in the back. Got 17 mpg doing 70-75 mph all the way there, 21.5 on the way back, combined with the trip there. It was 71 degrees, heavy humidity, engine temp kept splitting 210 degrees, couldn't ask for much more...

How do you like the way the line-x on the steps turned out? Mind if I ask cost? Close up picks?

 

I pulled mine the other day with this in mind but I'm debating.
