So the top pic is towards the front of the truck and only about a half inch long, it should go from bottom all the way to the top. The second pic is towards the backside and this one shows the gap on top of the plate where it should of been welded. Basically it should of been fully welded on both sides and the top. I actually got a call from the general manager over the 4 shops around my area, he was really great about the whole thing and will be there Wednesday when they fix all the screw ups. He also had them order a full axle assembly for the side where the cv boot was torn so we’d have piece of mind that there wouldn’t be any issues with it in the future.

You were talking about the lew tune. I got the intune from him after we talked and he said you can just reset the truck back to stock an the dealer will not be able to see it on there. I’ve not had any problems with mine so far. An I have 13k on mine just remember to return back to stock when going to the dealer. I just wish I would have went ahead and got a tune from lew instead of still running the can ones. Sorry to thread jack really liking the truck.

Yes, pretty sloppy. If I lift another truck I will not be going there.
Diezeljunkie I’m probably going to do the Lew tune in the near future, I’ve been running the Range AFM delete for about 400 miles now. I thought the transition between V4 and V8 was pretty smooth but after running this I can definitely tell a difference if I drive without it. I know this isn’t supposed to increase MPG’s but I swear it went up a little. I’m just going by the onscreen data, I didn’t do a before and after fill up and check myself.

Forgot about my floor liners, it’s the very first thing I did. I went with the over the hump front and rear by WeatherTech. I like them.

Good coverage for sure. Looks a little work truck like. But practical if you get into muddy areas.

Definitely does cover about all the carpet, I just can’t stand stains. Spills will happen, especially with two kids.

Oh yeah....for sure. Had one of mine drop an un-lidded large DQ Blizzard seconds after driving off....upside down on my carpet. Was in a previous vehicle. That was upsetting....haha.

Matching grab handles

Ordered a drivers side A pillar grab handle, saw the swap on the site somewhere. Took about 10 minutes to swap, I can grab that now instead of the steering wheel. Why they don’t do that from the factory I don’t know. I like it!
