Typically it's easier to find the gutter guards than a large piece like what you are talking about and cheaper too. I sprayed them first then cut. It doesn't mess them too much and only on the edge.

One afternoon I will go in Lowe's and look around at the gutter guard!! That is not one of the sections I typically frequent in Lowe's!!

Did you place it on the diagonal? I like that look.

Did not place it on a diagonal. Just ask someone for the gutters you can't miss the guards. My mind has been in the gutter a lot lately.

Did our first two mods this weekend - Hood Lock and center console security insert. Both from Tuffy Products - good quality, installed fairly easily. Would recommend to others.

I just read the following:

A new survey from automotive shopping website TrueCar.com found that the brand with the highest percentage of male buyers last year was Ferrari, with over 92 percent of its cars sold in the United States going to men. Bentley, Maserati, Porsche and Jaguar rounded out the testosterone-tinged top 5.

Women, on the other hand, preferred Minis, Nissans, Kias, Hondas and Mitsubishis, although they made up less than half of the customers of each of those brands.
As far as specific models are concerned, among those with more than 1,000 sales, the ladies liked the Volvo S40, Nissan Rogue and Volkswagen Eos most, while men predictably went for the Porsche 911, GMC Sierra and Ford F-150.

Ugh, I cannot imagine driving any of those top three listed as favorites with women!!!

Ok I need to buy a cover. Seats were wet since it got cold enough that it hit the dew point. I think seat covers might be nice to.

A girl near me just uses a tarpaulin and four bungee cords to cover hers!

Borrowed with your knowledge, or did somebody just take it?

ordered on 4/20 and now I can get on the VTO site and it says "Production Scheduled"

Hope for a late May delivery, but that may be pushing it

*bows head in shame* yes ma'am.

Seriously though, I'm excited. My dealer used all their allocations for April, but was able to convert a vehicle on an order placed the day before to my build. I got there at just the right time!!!

That is great the dealer worked with you!!

The wait is awful - I am not a patient person. You will love your Jeep, though!!

And yeah, I agree with Bager. I have no idea why they stopped letting us use Insight. It was a much better system and it created greater customer satisfaction. (Even if we were using it through a backdoor!!!)

My dead pedal arrived today!!

Everyone thinks I am crazy to be so excited about a dead pedal, especially since nobody has ever heard of one before!!! They have gotten used to my Jeep obsession by now and just sort of look at each other and roll their eyes!!!

I heard they stoped insight because it displayed shipping information to accurately and it could lead to thefts.
