Going to do this tonight, Heard people say they don't bounce around while hitting bumps and what not, that is my only concern.

ThePoohmeister Im sure this is already on here, but I guess I'll post it again. Trimming your fenders is a great, cheap way to add more room for articulation and for appearance.



Then I used some of the plastic that I had trimmed of the fenders to fabb up this little bracket and added a 3/4" LED side marker light.

Lumberjack_MC I picked up a red key shell from Amazon. $9 for the shell with an un-cut key. You swap your electronics over from your old one then the dealership cut it for me based on my VIN for free! They come in red, blue, pink or green. Buy the ones that come with the rubber buttons included because the old buttons from my remote did not fit as well as the new ones.

ArmyofMike Figure I'll post here too since it was so cheap to make!

Made my own Mikeybilt Tailgate Module:
(Instructions here-)

It is a table/molle rack that cost me about $25.

Thanks brotha!! I was kind of on the fence about keeping it red but I guess I will leave them like that for a little while until I get sick of it and then go back to black maybe.

That's the headliner from hothead headliners. One for each freedom panel and then there's pieces for the rear hard top as well.

Bruhee Like $38 on Amazon. It's definitely something that you could probably rig up yourself with hooks but I figured I would give this a try and I'm happy with it.
