    I just finished installing my braided stainless brake lines. WOW! What a difference. They easily took an inch out of my pedal travel. I also flushed and bled the system using the new motive power bleeder I bought. The bleeding went really fast. I can actually say that is someone pulls out in front of me I now have a fighting chance to stop.

    Glad you like the stainless steel lines. They do make a big difference.

    I washed the truck after taking it on a little trail ride. Now I see why I tend to stick to more wide open areas for my off road enjoyment as the trail got a bit narrow with brush. Scratched the crap out of the sides. Fortunately none seem to be deep as there are no noticeable edges and hopefully will come out with polishing (looks better after washing but still noticeable in the right light).
    These run the entire length of the truck on both sides

    wow, Hopefully you can get those buffed out. On the fender flare I would try armorall extreme shield wax. it should hide most of those scratches.

    yeah hopefully. the fender flares are plastic and easy to paint again as well if I want. I posted a thread in the detailing section so hopefully some with that type of experience can help.

    Learned from my mom that a turkey hit my windshield while he was driving the truck today. Only damaged the passenger side of the windshield but also caused glass to rain inside the truck. Just need to make sure my parents give Safelite the proper windshield description. Mine is the progressive tint one. Not sure on the part #. Also will need a new pass side wiper because it got damaged as well.
