I much prefer the design of this to the WT.

The after only 2 months of ownership the truck rolled over 3k miles this weekend while driving along the Oregon coast. We needed to get out of the house and I’ve always wanted to do this drive, so we spent the sunny-but-cold afternoon enjoying the salty air.





Spotted copilot



Peter Iredale wreck





Tried to find some forest roads to explore but every single gate was closed. Saw a few locals on the side of 101 when we headed home.

So I finally got around to installing my Apex Overland (aka LFD Offroad) front recovery points. While they could be removed with the stock skid plate still on, it's much easier if you remove it and the associated black trim so that you can drop the sway bar more easily. I had to cut and remove some black tape-like substance over the frame to access the large 19mm bolt hole, and the bolts that mount the sway bar back to the frame were an absolute sonofa***** to get threaded on the driver side, but overall the install was pretty easy. My torque wrench was on the fritz and I snapped the lock washer on the driver side, but Apex helped me source new hardware for it. I'm hoping to stave off a front bumper as long as possible, so these make me feel better about either getting stuck or helping someone else that is stuck.

My other project over the weekend were Rokblokz mud flaps for all 4 corners of the truck. We spend a lot of time on gravel forest roads out here in Oregon, and my Grabber ATX's pick up and fling rocks like crazy. I already have a sizeable chip on my passenger rear door from a trip a couple of weeks ago which bummed me out. While I know larger mud flaps aren't the coolest thing in the world, I care too much about the paint and underside of the truck to let it get sandblasted constantly. These install easy and I think may even offer a little bit more clearance for when I upsize the tires due to the way that they notch near the frame on the front wheels. These are the normal size (not XL) and took about 10 minutes to install. So far I'm really, really happy with them, as they seem to have already put a serious dent (LOL) in how much gravel is kicked up by the tires.

I finally got to install my LFD ruggedized crossbar set and so far I'm extremely pleased with them. No wind noise with the integrated front fairing, but our PNW rain has found a few holidays in the powder coating. Installation is very simple and I was able to do it myself with a small ladder in the garage. I'm a nutcase and measured the distance between the bars to equally space them, which snugging the T-nuts allowed for. If you want a more sturdy and versatile option to roof-mount things like ski racks and traction boards, look no further. I can't see why most people don't install these over something like a roof rack.

Also got to take the truck out for its first “shakedown” camping trip near me. It’s an absolute joy to explore local forest and fire roads with. Ran into a reasonably famous local YouTube personality after the local Rigs and Coffee.

We took a scenic route on our trip to bend a few weeks back and I stopped by Detroit to see how bad the damage was after the fire. It's heartbreaking to see all the concrete pads with melted rubble on top of them. On the bright side, driving out onto the lake bed was pretty darn interesting.





We got some skiing in while in Bend and the ATX tires did phenomenally in the snow, as expected. The Yakima "Fresh Tracks 6" ski rack works well on the LFD crossbars and didn't produce a ton of wind noise either. You need to be careful when putting skis in the racks to ensure that the rear gate can open fully. I have to flip my 178s around to make it work.

My Super White 5th Gen Build Thread

Got the truck out onto BLM land for the first time a couple of weekends ago near the Painted Hills. Nothing too gnarly, but a couple of steep gravel ascents and the truck made it seem entirely too easy. Even "stock" (outside of good AT's), these trucks are amazingly capable.

My Super White 5th Gen Build Thread

After a 2 month wait, I finally got my full aluminum skid plate set from the RCI group buy. I installed the front 3 skids plus filler plate earlier this week and then put the fuel skid on last night. The front 2 skids are fine, but getting that transfer case section lined up and mounted by yourself is an absolute PITA. I'd recommend using a pry bar to help hold the frame braces up while you slide it on. It took some very careful knee/elbow/hand coordination to hold it all up and slide it together, but once it went on it's VERY solid.



I'm glad I went with the aluminum over the steel as this truck is never going to be a serious crawler, and I'm especially glad I went with raw Al vs. powder coated, as it looks great from the front and from the side.





I opted to mount the fuel skid as far forward as possible to reduce the gap between the xfer case plate and the fuel plate, as well as providing the most amount of protection to the front of the tank.

I also got around to installing the ARB compressor mount from LFD Offroad in the engine bay. I don't think I'll ever run a second battery and apparently the fuse box area is different on the '20/'21 models so this is the only place to put it. I added some plastic washers between the mount and the frame to reduce the potential for grinding and galvanic corrosion. The bottom bolt is different than '19-prior years (it's the same as the top hole hardware) so you'll need to source your own from the hardware store. Compressor and AOB switch will be installed this weekend.



You can see the plastic washers I used to insulate the mount here.



I had to stack 2 washers to make this work as the A19 stainless they used is hard to find near me.

So, based on this image... do you wish you would have gone with the XLs? I'm still on stock rims, but I'm considering replacing the mud flaps that I tore up and consequently off several years back.

No, at least not yet. That was taken from a slight angle (to the left) and the coverage is pretty good for the front tire. I plan on moving to a 0 offset wheel this fall which may change things, but overall I'm pleased with them so far. No more rock strikes on the side of the car and it's reduced the gravel flinging on the underside as well.
