That's good, always nice when a shop goes above and beyond the minimum.

That's like when mine went in, I asked if they could do my hood different, I fully expected to get charged at least for materials since they had to get a different color and mask it off etc, but nope they didn't charge me a dime.

Spotted @spicy on mcphillips. Well I think it was spicy lol. Same car/color with a jets plate.

Gotta say I don't like the look of the car in photos but it does look better in person.

Yup. Sure are.

I mean, it's a 200ci 4 door haha. Not very desirable. The 2 doors aren't even that popular really.

I paid $800 for mine lol.

edit. Wouldn't let me tag a username with a hashtag before letters. Letters after the "@" worked though.


Seeing a 4 door big bumper listed at 1900 makes me feel good about what I paid for my 2 door haha.

Also finally got the camping build started!


Empty bed, cleaned it out and took some measurements.



Cut the plywood to length and width, then cut out the spaces for the bulges in the side of the bed.



First test fit to make sure the cut outs lined up, all good! time to cut more supports.






The rest of the supports ready.



Now that all those are cut out, time to screw them on.



Another test fit to make sure things are still good.



Time for the side piece of plywood, I went taller with this piece, so it can hold the foam pad from sliding off the side.





I'm going to leave this end open, so I can store things like my shovel, axe, and hi lift underneath.



And thats the sleeping platorm! super easy, it's really light, and it's dead simple to remove it by myself.

yeah, these things have a **** ton of weights, inside and outside. Worst tire was 6.75 oz on the inside, 8.5 oz on the outside. I managed to place the weights with some offset that I ended up only needing about 4.5 inside and 5 outside.

posting an update in my journal thread shortly, will have more pics.

I have no idea. I think they just replaced it since they couldn't find any leaks.

Odd. If there's a leak you can always find it. But hopefully that fixed it for you.

I'm actually tossing my 35's on today, one of the first race in taking off was leaking and it was the stem. Bubbled up like crazy lol.

They checked it for leaks and checked the patch and it was fine, so they pulled the tire and wheel apart, put a new tire stem on and resealed it. Just checked to see if the pressure was dropping and it was at 38.5 PSI

So it was the stem? Did they check it for leaks too or just replace it?
