Put my new rocker entry guards on. Looks much cleaner than the clear sticker protectors they have from the factory

Exactly. I couldn't build it for that probably.. Shipping isn't bad at all and it's literally ready to lift and bolt in. So glad I did it over a d44.

Are those disk brakes on that? Why are the rotors painted?

Yes disc Comes with 8.8. Rotors aren't painted, that's a factory dust shield covering the rotor assembly.

Seems fair last windshield I had installed would have cost me about $250 if I didn't have a $0 deductible on my insurance

Installed new drivers side sway bar linkage. Bought a couple cheapos from NAPA. Funny thing is, in the boxes, I got one cheap one and one expensive one. The expensive one does not have a tapered shoulder on the ball joint-side bolt. The cheap one does. The cheap one would not seat (I measured with a caliper, the sway bar clearance hole is .450", the new cheap linkage shoulder rings in at .550". Not gonna work.

The expensive one has a hex punched out in it so you can tighten the nut while holding the ball joint stable (otherwise it turns) and also has a flat on the other side of the bolt in case you want to tighten the nut with the socket. The cheapo had none of these fine options.

Moral of the story...buy the expensive NAPA option. It will turn a 4 beer job into a 2 beer job! and no I dont work for NAPA...
