Glad all made it through!
Wow that's intense. I've hit deer before but I can't imagine the raw mass a moose would have

Yeah. Lots of fun. Not looking forward to ever doing it again. That's why the front is all set up...here's a photo to fix what I derailed...I'll post an updated one when I get home from work.

Nope. I tipped her over instead. She got up and ran into the trees after grunting at me...she was lucky I wasn't armed at the time...

New to the site and truck ownership in general. Here is my 2014 FX4 that I brought home off the lot yesterday. Trying to figure out what mods/accessories are a must for right now.

What are you looking to do with it long term?

I plan on using it for camping, exploring ghost towns and abandoned gold mines in the area. I'm not interested in cheap, easy to break accessories or add ons. I am interested in extra lighting, front and rear, no chrome, maybe a little cool factor upgrade or two but nothing over the top. I still need something for occasional travel so gas mileage needs to stay at least what it is now, if not better.

Does that help?
