Crossed into 19,000 miles in 5 months and 2 weeks of ownership (got the truck with 141 miles). I also filled up the second tank for the week. The truck showed 29.8 MPG but hand calculated it came out to 31.21 MPG. That is the 3rd tank in a row that I've averaged over 30 MPG. Can't complain in a 5,500+ pound 4wd truck.

Deep matte black vinyl wrap with a gloss black chrome delete!

First paint correction and seal on the AT4 now that winter is over. This blue looks even better after a clay/polish/seal.

Had Bilstein 5100's installed in the front and rear. Front set at 2". Swapped out the stock tires for Ridge Grapplers, 275/60/20. Also had a Flowmaster FlowFX Muffler installed. 1" rear block on the way to level out the rear and give it a touch of rake again.

I added a Smartliner bed mat.  I didn't order my truck with a spray in as I don't really need it.  I do like a mat to keep things from sliding around though.  This thing is nice and it's very rubbery so I don't see stuff sliding much at all.  However, it might be too sticky.  It seems like it will definitely make sliding things into the bed a pain so I'll see how that works out.  Fit and finish is excellent.  I do need to poke a couple of drain holes in it toward the cab.

That looks great as is.  I wouldn't touch the rear.  Nicely done.

Today, got a dent in the front passenger door from a baseball at my son's game today. Was it a foul ball? Nope. I park too far away for that. Kid that was warming up in the bullpen couldn't throw and managed to clear a 6 foot fence with his bad pitch. It was the 2nd time he hit my truck today. First time was the rear passenger door window.

 

I also washed my truck tonight. I then looked for leaks in the rear window. Still none. Washing allowed me to take a closer look at my truck's new dent. Paint is fine. I can fix the clear coat in my driveway. Hopefully PDR will remove the dent. Wife is deploying in late summer, so I'll take that time to have the dents removed from my truck. I'll just drive her car while it's in the shop.

 

Also, I have a fog light that is acting up. Occasionally it'll come on. Other times it won't. When it comes on it won't stay on. I've seen it flashing while I was driving around. I took a look at it and discovered the light and housing are 1 assembly. I wonder if the dealer will replace it under warranty, or if the dealer will tell me it's a normal wear & tear item.

Technically I didn't do it, but last week I took it to the local muffler shop.  They Cut out the factory muffler and flapper valve and replaced it with a VX Muffler.  Now it sounds like a truck!!!

This is the look I want. How does it ride? Are the grapplers 4 ply or 10 ply?

Thanks, it was the exact look I was going for as well. I have a 1" rear block coming, but not totally sure if I will put it in or not. I need to do some more measuring. I'll put a jack under the rear hitch and raise it that inch and see what it looks like first. From one angle, the front is noticeably higher than the rear, but other angles it looks good.

 

It rides significantly better with the Bilstein 5100's, the difference was instantly noticeable. I believe I have the 4 ply tires? I went with the cheaper, lower load rating if that helps. I wanted 285/60/20, but that meant spending another $4-500 in just the difference from 275 to 285 and couldn't justify it. I saved the tire cost and put it into the Bilstein's.

I want to install the grill lights.  Did you follow a SOP for install or did you put one together?  Did you pull the grill completely of to install, seems like that may be unecessary with possible install from the top.
