    Only 4 reviews, and the one guy that commented does not give a chance for his saw to “cut” its grove in the plastic. I have a knife holder on my boat that functions on the same principle, and there was a break in on that as well. I’ll be the Guinea pig.

    After more than a year of receiving the Hertz speakers system, finally put them in.

    Replaced all 4 doors speakers and tweeters, one thing I'm very disappointed in was how the stereos were installed from factory, since day 1 I noticed my rear door sound was worse than front, and the stock speakers are already terrible, only to find out both tweeters in the rear the solder is lose for the wire, so it works intermittently.

    And I sound proof the doors, had about 50lbz of deadeners added, I already did the rear when I put the subs in, overall it was an easy job thanks to the giant openings, I did everything in about 3hrs time.

    You can see that pathetic excuse of sound deadener from stock.

    Like full grown arse man stepping on it? No.

    I took mine apart to install the wireless charger. Based on that process IMO it wouldn't last heavy weight with repeat abuse unless it's somehow reinforced.

    Definitely not. It's only 4 bolts into the sides of the plastic console.

    I’ve just been out playing with the mount, take your chain brake off and it slides right in, then put your brake on.

    it also has a limit to 18” bars. To fit under the Diamondback, it has to be the right saw. This husqvarna has about 2 centimeters of clearance on the strut.

    My truck turned 7 yesterday! Pretty sure I’ve now owned it twice as long as any other vehicle I’ve ever had.

    In December it will be 10 years I've had my 2014. Only 10 more years to match how long we had the 2000 Tundra.

    The wife and I pulled the Jeep to Greenbrier County, WV over the weekend. When the truck dropped into a lower gear to make it up some of the hills, she asked if that is why I want a supercharger.... yes, dear... yes it is. Now hopefully I can make that happen!

    Installed my storage box...

    I wanted to wait to mount the box until after I lined the bed, but will get to that later:




    Perfect fit and helps keep the tire snug in the back.

    There are 2 small bars of 2"X.5" stock underneath it to keep it off the bed.

    Drop brackets off etrack mounted to the canister would be quick and easy (minus fabbing up the drop brackets). Modular too

    Wife wanted to add overlay onto the emblems! Pretty much ditched all the chrome on the outside now.

    She also wants to paint the bumper caps white since the black plasti-dip I did 2 years ago are finally going.

    Anyone on here plasti dipped their bumper caps white instead of going with the bumper shells?

    Nice! When we head north it's usually to Cottonwood or further up to Williams. We have yet to try the Payson area, might have to look into it.

    I would go with the bumpershellz. Buy once, cry once. And you’ll be maintenance free after installation.

    I did the plasti dip, lasted for a short time. Scrapped it off and painted ( with cheap paint), that didn't last long. Just stripped to bare metal and hoping to paint this or next weekend. Got professionaly color matched paint in a spray can from a local paint shop. I'll clear coat and hopefully won't have to re do it.

    Same dilemma here. Prior owner did a sh*t job on the bumper caps. Didn't know about the BumperShellz until you and diebs96 mentioned it. I kind of like the idea of maintenance free after buy once, cry once.

    Also looking for running boards. Like yours. What running boards are those?

    Thanks! Yeah, bumpershellz are an option, but I figure I’ll eventually replace the bumper soon and won’t want to dish out money for those shells.

    They are actually rock sliders made by White Knuckle Off Road.

    So I did plasti-dip followed by some bedliner in a can. @BlueRibbon4x4 has done a similar method that he then sanded and painted (his hood bulge). Depending if you are wanting the caps smooth or are willing to have some texture, you might not even need to sand the bedliner before painting white. My end caps have done well in the 1.5 since painting and I don't have any rock chips. Geno has been running the plasti-dip with bedliner for longer and he takes his truck out to off road and hasn't had issues.

    Its easy to apply and pretty cost effective (probably about $40 to do the front end caps. 1 cap plasti dip per corner, getting 4-5 layers, and I just used Rustoleum aerosol bedliner)

    Man, as I read this, I think this is exactly what the prior owner did to my grill surround and bulge. Those pieces on my truck have quite a few chips all over them and I've been trying to figure out what the heck he used to paint it. The top coat is definitely a bedliner material (black and rough), but it comes off like there is something else between the bedliner material and the truck's original white paint. I didn't realize this was a common "thing" to do. Learned something new today. :thumbsup:

    Understand about the BumperShellz. Same thought process here, but figure if I replace the bumper I'll just list the Shellz here. Oh, and thank you for the heads up on the White Knuckle sliders ... did a little research, and that's what I've been looking for.
