Installed new park sensor (yay no "service park assist" message anymore) and installed the AlphaTherm Heated Wash AT-37GM that went in the place of the factory unit that was recalled and removed, so now the button works on the dash and the heated washer fluid is going to be fun  :thumbsup:.

RE-mounted my Yakima rack on the bed covers.  Originally mounted right when I bought it 5+ years ago, the bolts were completely rusted. Some had actually broken!  Brand new 10/24 socket cap screws, and lots of black RTV this time around. Should be good for another 5 years.

Ya, I probably should have used stainless this time around.  But more importantly, I probably should have checked them out sooner!  The bikes cost way to much to mount them on a rack that could be rusted, or just loose, etc...

Had to taker her in for a rear main seal and get the spark plugs changed.  Hopefully she's good for another 100k after this.

Changed out the wiring harness from the rear junction block to the passenger tail light assembly on the WBH. That took all of 5 minutes. I had repaired 3 of the wires right at the plug a couple of times already and they were breaking again. $33 for the new harness and piece of mind.

Installed my grill insert last night from Putco.  First time I saw this design I knew I wanted it.  Very happy with the way it looks.  Just have to cover the bowtie now from the gold to a nice silver or black

Unpacked ready to go
