    Nothing major
    I dropped the rock shield and installed nylon bushings to stop the popping sound during low speed turns. It fixed the problem but it was a pain. There is a small hex head bolt in the middle of the shield with a giant square spacer on the inside. Not sure the purpose of the bolt because it's so small but it caused needless grief reattaching.

    With rain in the forecast today I went for it!

    Washed and dried total exterior as fast as I could. Used the microfiber towels on the tires and wheel wells to get all moisture out in all the nooks and crannies.

    - Proceeded to use Waxaddict on tires, wheel wells, windshields cowl, mud flaps, window molding, badging, grill etc..Did this first so it could dry before the rain hit.

    I am a closet user of Mothers paste wax and though I don't use it often I wanted to apply that today. It is a beotch to take off so my gut feeling is it must last longer than some easy to apply waxes which I routinely use. I believe in layering waxes over weeks and months.

    This wash mit I received from @WarEagleSteve and I like it a lot. When washing it gives good feedback to my hands and gets into tight areas. It has a soft side that will gently wash the paint surface yet it is thin enough to let me feel what it is going over. Highly recommended as a good buy. Thank you Steve!

    WaxAddict on the cowl but no wax yet on the hood.

    Waxaddict on tires/ mudflap and Nerfbars. This is what Waxaddict looks like dry.

    I was able to wax the critical areas of the exterior which for me are the hood, mirrors and roof before the rain came.

    I'll dodge the raindrops today and try to finish the rest of the exterior. I would like to detail the interior too if possible.

    Thanks guys,

    I am a bit tall I guess. The truck fits me and my better half quite well.

    I like to keep my things looking good and always appreciate the feedback!

    In cleaning I realized that when I am at seat level and driving I notice things on other people's vehicles, like the pinch weld areas behind the Nerf bars. So today for the first time in almost three years of ownership I washed them. I think on some unconscious level it probably resonates with others as well. Probably a bit anal but once every three years isn't too anal.

    The interior is done now as well as is the engine area. To my knowledge this is the first time I have everything cleaned at the same time.

    How many miles on your truck Jim ? The exterior, interior and engine bay look cleaner than the showroom floor. Nice job :thumbsup:. May seem strange, but sometimes I think I pay more attention to my engine bay and under carriage than the exterior. Guess I have always been that way and lets you keep an eye on any potential leaks etc. My 37's allow easy access under the truck too. :rolleyes: Keep up the nice work my friend.

    Not sure how tall you are Sean, but I'm only 5-7 and the step stool is my friend too. I guess a lift and oversized tires on our trucks doesn't help things. May sound strange, but I actually have a hard time getting out of my wife's Mercedes sedan cuz the seat are so close to the ground...:eek:

    @CM-LENNY,
    I have 29,8xx miles.

    Thanks for the compliments and keep up the good work under your own rig too! Those hard to reach areas are visible for a mechanic and future buyers to see how well the vehicle was kept up. If I were buying a vehicle I would choose one that was mechanically sound over one that looked great on the exterior but not kept up.

    Underneath my truck I Plan on using a wire wheel and touch up slightly rusting areas with OSPHO on some rusty nuts and paint them black.

    Good hearing from you brother!

    I use ladders and step stools too!

    I like sports cars and with difficulty fit and run autocross in a Miata.

    CM-LENNY,

    Being 5'7 is very good in my book! That is a perfect height for participating in a lot of sports, fitting in sports cars, being at eye level in a crowded bar and hearing a conversation with a hottie over the din is a huge plus to name a few!

    Washed and dried it today. Did the plastic with some 303. Came out looking pretty decent. Need to do a full clay bar and wax at some point soon.

    Yeah Steve that would be nice. I enjoy detailing it just don't have the time. This look me a good 2 hours on and off tending to a "bored" 5 year old in between.
