It’s factory with SE package. The hood decal is the only decal I left on the truck.

Some things on the to do list:
Paint to match parts > bumper caps, tow mirror skull caps & some interior parts.
Tufskinz tailgate decal
Name the truck
LED license plate bulbs
Interior aluminum **** set
Mirror spotlight mod
wheel spacers
red’ing out XLT tails

Things I’m debating:
Powder coating square exhaust tip black
Interior ambient light, via some amazon light kit

Other basic stuff like Tint, Bedliner, Bakflip tonneau, etc are already done.

Used a magnetic charge cord this time. The male end of the connector stays inside the port of the phone. Just tap it close to the cord and it whips into place by means of the magnets. They are surprisingly strong. Very pleased with its performance while connected to Apple Carplay as well. Cord sits snugly in its new home. V




Where did you source that cable, and do you have any better pictures showing the install?

In the months of owning this truck I haven't done nearly as much as I originally wanted. I can say that I love this truck, although Ive already had some ups and downs with the 2018. First week I owned the truck someone in an unknown parking lot decided to hit my passenger front window with (lord knows what), and chipped it. Although its very small, its noticeable when the window is clean. Dealership quoted the fix at roughly $900. That will have to wait.

Getting other issues fixed first are in my sights. She's booked in to the dealership tomorrow morning to go over some issues. The dash around the cluster was not installed correctly from the factory, causing it not to sit flush to the cluster and sit high on the left side. The Panoramic roof has rattled very badly since week 1. That harsh sound when letting off the gas is very annoying, I believe its the TSB 18-2354. The CEL has come on. The occasional harsh downshift, and the truck has completely stalled at a stop sign before. Looking into all of that, plus 1 recall.

If I can get the rattling pano roof fixed, the dash set correctly + the TSB mentioned above, Ill be happy.

In the meantime, I recently added a shorty antenna I bought off amazon. Did not come with the proper adapter so I re-tapped it and used a stainless bolt that matches the threads from the truck. Looks very good IMO (even though CF is not really my thing) and mates up to the truck perfectly . Other mods will likely be coming in the springtime once all the snow and salt is gone.

I'm gonna just throw this out there: if you are confident enough to change the window yourself, you can buy a new one for $151.95 (+14.95 shipping) on eBay

Thanks for the link. To be honest, I'm debating getting the chip filled instead of replacing the glass. Windows are tinted as well adding one more thing to the mix.

Made a rear seat release today. Aside from the loop ($1.50), I had all items to make it. Dont know why I didn't do this before, very happy with the extra storage space.
Started by removing the latch & drilling a hole to allow the cable to pass through.


Used some cable heat shrink to cover the cut ends.


Covered the cable that goes around the loop with heat shrink as well. Wanted to make sure there wont be any rattling or scratching noise from minor movements (although likely will not happen).


Final Product. All crimped down, and heat shrinked up. Works like a charm.
