Installed Weathertech window vent visors front and back.  Got the black to match the black trim.  They are there yet not there.  At night you cant even tell I have them

Was going to go chrome and glad I didnt.  I dont think I would of liked not being able to see through the visors (my old truck has smoked and could see through as well)

Just a personal preference is all, chrome would of been nice to but stood out more

I put the weathertech side window defectors on too this weekend. NICE! Also painted the muffler with black woodstove paint so it blends in underneath and makes the s/s exhaust tip look better!

I like that idea.  My factory tip is stained with tar.  First road trip ever and got hit.  It was like a mist almost and wot come off the tip.  I got the truck cleane up, it was even on the tailgate.

today I took out my headlight to use a pair of needlenose pliers to grab that chrome reflector and put it back in the slot so it isnt rattling around in my headlight housing anymore

New Powerstop front rotors and brakes. Also while driving around that night braking in the pads, caught a couple in the CVS parking lot "in the act" in the back seat of their car!  :A:.

Went with hubby to his back doctor.  He has to have surgery.  I really hate parking garages.  Made hubby park on the top level.

Since GM was trying to save money to pay back the bail out and didn't put in an engine compartment light, I put in a couple LED strips I had left over from my bed lighting.

Okay, don't laugh, but I took off the bed panels just to make sure I knew how to take 'em off and put 'em back on again (only had it 2 weeks).  Also realized that there are no tie downs in the bed except for the 4 points in either corner just inside the tailgate.  :(

How does everyone else store their "stuff"...tools, jumper cables, jug of water...that kind of stuff?  I thought about using a milk crate and tethering it to a tie down (so it doesn't fall over and end up all over the bed) but there's very little to tie it to?  ???

I keep one or two large plastic totes in the bed. One has permenent items like flashlights etc. The other is empty and we use it during shopping trips so shopping bags are out of sight and won't roll around.

You know, that's the one thing I miss about the SUV I traded in for my AV...not worrying about groceries all over the back when the grocery bags roll around.  A plastic tote would solve that.  I'm tired of hoisting the groceries in the back seat (I'm only 5'3")  :P.
