Started the weekend by hitting a deer late Friday night :frown:.
About 45mph on a two lane road and nowhere to go. Hit driver side just inboard of the bumper cap and pushed in bumper, contacted and bent valence, and snapped off one of the mounting points on the headlight bucket. All was...
I bent up an aluminum bracket that is held by VHB tape to the top of the ashtray cubby. Normally I just display water temp and IAT. I find it interesting to try to predict the correlation between IAT, throttle input, and water temp on long drives :).
Just returned from our annual 2200 mile family vacation to Cape San Blas, FL.
Weather was awesome, fishing was even better! Spanish Mackerel, Grouper, Mahi Mahi, and several sharks (those didn’t come into the boat 😳). We ate like kings! 👍
LX ran like a top. 98 degree ambient, AC pushing ice...
Spent the last 4 days taking 31 members of our Boy Scout Troop on a 45 mile canoe/kayak paddle down the headwaters of the Delaware River from Callicoon, NY to Matamoras, PA. The LX did duty pulling canoes or the gear trailer and didn't miss a beat.
My base camp 👍

Additionally, it is also a poignant reminder to appreciate our fathers...
Cool! I'll be there in a month.
My family has been going down there to fish and boat every July for the last 25 yrs. It is a beautiful place (even after a hurricane). If you haven't tried Weber's Donuts, you are missing out. He is usually sold out by by 9AM and the line forms well before...
Cool! I found it on mine and it is held in place by definitely "non-OEM" zip ties.
I have aftermarket remote lock/unlock fobs so my guess is that I don't need it anymore. I have never heard a "chirp" out of my truck.
As has been mentioned earlier, I would go with the custom width Dexter axle. They are reasonable in price, exactly what width, bolt pattern, and brake option you want, and you then know the maintenance history of your new axle.
The other challenge with keeping the military surge brakes is that...
