    Thanks SurrealOne for the advice! after doing some research and looking at alot of pictures online I'm leaning towards 20% for the back window. I think that will probably be my best bet for visibility for my canopy on or off. that sucks about that carwash scratching your truck, never trusted those type of car washes. hope the repairs go well

    Oh yeah, It was definitely a blast. After that week long trip of off roading and hikes, my truck has lots of scratches from tree branches and bushes. I ain't too worried about it though, the truck will get a new paint job eventually. lol

    All painted up and looking nice
    [maybe I should paint "95C1500" in the skid plate :lol:

    Yesterday I installed a second battery...

    Today I installed mini leds in the panel under the tailgate, installed a tailgate lock, installed some halogen backup lights on the backrack, installed my Wilson cell booster, and gave the torsion bar bolts three full turns.

    Tomorrow is oil change, rear diff drain/fill, and off road lights.

    In the past weekend I drove about 120 miles round trip to and from camp for a work detail. Tonight the truck killed 100s of bugs on the highway and got all muddy on the trails so I will have to wash her tomorrow.

    Now 199690.5 miles on the truck.

    Today I:

    • Removed the air system's annealed copper hard line everywhere except for the tank equalization line
    • Removed the rear air manifold
    • Removed the front air manifold
    • Replaced the 200psi pressure relief valves in each air manifold with 235psi pressure relief valves
    • Replaced the 140psi/175psi on/off (respectively) pressure switch in the front air manifold with a 160psi/200psi on/off (respectively) pressure switch
    • Replaced every compression fitting except those of the tank equalization line with brass push-to-connect fittings
    • Reinstalled the front air manifold
    • Reinstalled the rear air manifold
    • Re-plumbed from the rear QD to the rear air manifold with 300psi reinforced nylon tubing
    • Topped off the truck's coolant level

    Tomorrow I need to replumb the front end of the truck (front air manifold to rear air manifold, front air manifold to front QD, front air manifold to air horn valve, front air manifold to coalescing filter), pressurize the system, leak test it, and try to decide if I'm taking the air tank carrier down to re-plumb the equalization line.
