That's decent life for a battery here in Texas, Roger. I changed mine 2 weeks ago. I went with the Duracell AGM Ultra from Batteries & Bulbs. Pricey, but I had great experience with a Duracell Battery in my boat, so I re'd-up, so to speak.

Removed my front plate and bracket, then modified my air box and put an AEM dryflow air filter into housing. Getting everything ready to install back into the truck and remove the CAI that i currently have in there.ImageImageImage

I have a very short commute to work (3 miles each way) and Its just not what I need with my lack of driving. Plus the truck is under warranty for the next 5 years from (from a D***e dealership) so i dont want to let them give me any chance for an issue. Especially since ive already had issues with them just to fix my chipped windshield when i bought the truck.

Dumped the oil in the rear diff of my 17 HD. Gm rebuilt it when the pinion bearings failed around 4000 miles ago last winter so I thought I would see. There was all kinds of crap on the maghytecs magnets so I dropped the cover and gave it a good clean. It's likely residual from in the axle tubes and not of concern. Got the cover on but didn't refill it yet... since the last time I drove it was over a month ago it can sit for a while with the rear end empty and the engine 2 quarts low lol

Got my new 3rd brake light in. The gasket they provide is twice the thickness of the OEM one so it made the light sit off the truck too much. After I trimmed it down it sits pretty flush. the bottom sits out a little. The light has a slight bow in. I'm hoping after its in the sun and screwed down it might relax a little. idk Ill try it for a while and see.

Still looks like a lot better mount than the one I had got online.. Not too bad at all. Are you happy with the light output?
