Actually, I have had my truck for about a year and a half now. I just update my original thread with new stuff  :thumbsup:. It's a good way to keep a tabs of what I did and when  :cool:.

I like this truck so much I want it to be as "like new" as possible and keep up on the repairs. I hope to keep this for 10 years. It has so much great stuff already, what could I ever "upgrade" to? :A:

Me too, I have to atleast try to make the LEDs do all the functions.


My bulbs showed up, but not sure if I can get to them just yet. I really need to fix my power step before messing with the LED sail mods.

Thank you.


The grill is growing on me a bit. I do like that no one around here has this setup, makes it more unique.



Sunday I managed to fix my passenger side power step. Can finally take the bungee cord off that was holding it up  :laugh: :beating:. Luckily it was a cheap-ish simple fix. Took about a hour to remove the complete step, repair, and hang again.




Saturday I made a craigslist run to pickup a Snugtop. Couldn't be happier and can't wait to mount it!  :A:

Waiting for my hardware kit, keys, and paint before I mount the Snugtop. Very excited to see how it looks!


Last night I had a local mobil tint guy stop over and put 35% on my front windows for $50 as part of his Fall Special  :thumbsup:


Probably could have gone darker, but driving at night I don't like much darker than 35%.

Thanks man  :thumbsup:. I couldn't resist getting those plates as a gift for my wife at christmas last year. She refuses to drive a mini van, and hates when people call the Flex a mini van. It's so appropriate to have those words on the plate  :laugh:

i wonder if using a pulley to where it goes to the wall instead of an eye bolt will help with the weight distribution so you arent bending the eye bolt  :thumbsup:
