I washed that thang this morning. Today, I will start checking over everything for my trip to Texas on Saturday. I also need to fix my gap guards and tighten my rear tow loop. Those two have been bothering me for a while, but I've been too lazy to fix them. So sad.

Video will have to wait until tomorrow. Camera was dead so tried to use my tablet and it sounds like shit. All you can hear is a humming noise and just barely the exhaust. But it looks and sounds great, not that loud inside the cab but can definitely tell its not stock. Going to work tomorrow down the interstate will be fun.

Hopefully video will be up tomorrow but definitely this weekend. I went with 2 1/4" pipe and exited with 3" slanted tips, at a 45 degree exit under the bumper corners. All together it cost about $350 but that was muffler, tips, pipe, install.

Once a week for me, but i do wipe it down between washing's to keep the dust off

----------

Since I took out the jump seats I have had a space that has no carpet and looked real bad to me. So today I purchased some grey carpet and put it in covering it from the back cab wall to just under the seats by the seat mounts. I'll post some pics tomorrow. Other than that just drove it to Pet Smart to pick up some fish food and stuff. Still enjoying the Super 44 Flow Master exhaust I installed last Friday.

So really, how hard is it to replace fuel filter??? I want to do mine, but I have no way to relieve the pressure in the system, so I hesitate to do it. Can you let me/us know what you did to address this issue???

Sure you do have a way to relive pressure. All you gotta do is take the test cap off the rail and push the valve in with a small screwdriver (like letting the air out of a tire) This is the method I used.

But a little gas will spray out, so be careful.
