Did the PML cover require modifying the e brake bracket?

No modification, the bolt was hard to start though.

Thanks, it was a little tricky for me lining it up on the ground, but I got it. I think I'm going to start to prepare for the rust removal and frame rust proofing next.

If you go to Ziebart or other aftermarket undercoating shop, at least in my experience, they'll coat your nice aluminum drive shaft, and new, shiny diff cover and exhaust in a black tar substance that is impossible to remove after a day...
I would take your time and do it on your own with a paint brush or rattle can. Just my .02

Edit: Nice diff cover install too btw, looks good

Morning Newtome. Thanks for the compliment and yes, I agree with you about the professional undercoating. I did find a Ziebart shop near where I live, however, I already purchased everything I need to do the job myself, which is what I'm going to do. I'm a firm believer that no one will put in the effort and time to do the job like I will, so I'm prepared to get dirty, lol :) I will be removing the short bed to really get to as much of the frame as possible. I may even ask my neighbor to help me drop the gas tank. There are plenty of videos out there on how to do it, which looks pretty straight forward.

Dang, getting very thorough. I'm going to try and talk the dealer into fixing mine since it has gotten pretty bad and is still under corrosion warranty, if not I'll begin the undercoating process in the next 6 months or so. Not looking forward to that, my big belly keeps me from sliding under the truck without jackstands...
