Appreciate it! Second Skin is the best IMO and I like that they're local to me in AZ. They offer a ton of different products based on what you are trying to achieve. Noico is fantastic value, but I didn't want to cheap out on anything with the truck.Ughhhh looks so sick!! I need to deaden my truck so bad! Guess I'll be looking into that deadener you used!
Thanks d00d! To get rid of exhaust drone you might want to follow up the base butyl layer with a layer of their Luxury Liner instead - it's better at blocking those frequencies than the Heatwave Pro I put on.Loving the detail you are putting into these posts! Trying to read this whole thing in between work meetings today but I'll definitely have to come back to read in more detail and choose which of these mods I want to do first. My MBRP exhaust can be a little droney (drony?), so that sound deadening would be awesome.
Well.. those letters didn't match close enough to the rest of my MGM things so... repainted them. Sanding that R sucked lol.There's not really anywhere to put small bits of trash in this truck and the little square pocket behind the shifter is pretty useless.. so enter the Tacos4Cheap bucket/coin sorter. I chose the empty box style as I never carry change around and wanted a place to throw straw wrappers and etc. Out of the box it didn't fit great and required me to line the complete exterior with felt tape to avoid rattles but it fits perfect now after 1 layer all the way around and 2 on the bottom. Another subtle MGM accent added to my interior.
Also mmmm that shift knob.
Well I think the weather stripping was a success! I haven't heard the noise from the top of the doors since it was added. Also the doors seem to have a more upscale closing sound now. All around wins from a very cheap and simple fix.Also added some weather stripping on the B pillars to hopefully get rid of the small amount of wind noise the truck has from there.
Good to hear. I didn't notice it moving much but my eyes are usually forward in any uneven terrain. It must have been though as that's the only way I could have gotten that chipping where I did.I like mine. The combination of my decked system and the leitner designs rack put a good deal of stress on the bed, and these help a good bit. Visibly less "wobbling" when hitting bumps and such as viewed from my rear view mirrors.
Not on these, everything threaded in without issues. It looks like they were plugged before powdering so the threads were clean.Damn that's fancy!
Did you have to chase any of the threads due to powder? I've always wondered this.

I really like them, they are gorgeous sliders. They don't really serve as a functional step but they stick out far enough to where I can use them as one to clean the roof instead of needing a step stool. Usefulness ftw lol.
What about them? I don't need anything they make lol.UpTop Overland.
They are awesome. The owner and some of the fabricators were geeking out about some of the parts on my truck and that was super cool lol. Would not hesitate to buy more stuff from them if they made more stuff I needed.I was able to talk to the westcott designs folks at overland expo west a couple years ago. Super cool people and their products look great up close. I'm going to be buying the same sliders.
Some reason I had to contact AVS to send me replacement adhesive strips. I tried to rub off the logo and mine got all hazy. I guess whatever I used was too harsh. I left it. Did you get the low-profile or the regular ones?Another smol mod completed last night. Threw on the smoked AVS low profile window visors. They feel pretty decently made and I dig their styling with the little ridge towards the bottom. However, in true spirit of installing aftermarket parts on this truck, this install did not go as planned. I had to remove and retape about 80% of the surface area in order to get the double-sided tape to not be visible once installed. Very clean now and the AVS logos wiped off immediately with Goof-Off aerosol. I then applied a quick coat of Butter Wet Wax to them to fill in the random marks they showed up with and restore the shine to the area where the logos were.
I love the aerosol Goof-Off. It did make the deflectors a little hazy but the wax brought the shine right back. Had I not had a new roll of thin 3M tape I probably would have contacted them as well, but it didn't take too long to peel off with a plastic razor blade. these are the low profile version.Some reason I had to contact AVS to send me replacement adhesive strips.

Are your Volks the -20 offset?
LMAO. Yes they are I was reading on their Q&A and they said all their low profile offerings are in-channel. There is tons of room in these channels to add them too. Hopefully it helps with the little bit of random wind noise I still get even after adding some additional weather stripping between the doors.Then where's the low profile side shot? T3G demands it!
Are the low profile ones in-channel?
