The fair lead is gonna he more of a project, I have to pull the Winch to get at the nuts on the backside of the bracket.

Hook looks awesome. I’m not sold on the Blue D-Shackles yet, but I’ll give them some time.

I also swapped in the Raptor TCCM. Seems to work as advertised, which is cool.

The shackles dont bother me.  They look good.  ithink they'd look cool matched to the hook though.  The hook looks anodized so that would be tough I imagine. 

How does the raptor tccm change things?

Can’t be too picky when I buy the hook “used”, lol.

The Raptor TCCM lets you keep the rear eLocker locked right to 90mph. The FX4 one kicks out after 25mph. It’s not common, but does happen when off roading.

I meant I'd like to see the shackles match the red of the hook.  I think the small red offers a nice contrast.  Or just leave it as is because it looks good regardless.  Haha.  Not that you can leave much alone.

I was thinking the same thing, I ordered the blue shackles before I found the hook.

It’s still his fault though, that’s what I’m gonna tell my Wife anyways!

Well let me abuse my power a little bit here then.  I think a new drone would really set your truck off!

I imagine that you will be buying a blue hook before the end of the summer and changing everything back to blue..

Heck no! Those hooks are crazy expensive. I’ve been waiting for 3 years to find one “used”, lol.

Lol, I often sell for the same as I paid or a little less. I sold the first set of Sport 20’s for $400 more than I paid after using them for a summer.

I’ll loose money on the custom 20’s, but it’s how it goes sometimes. Cheaper than Golf!

I’m hoping to round out the audio upgrades this weekend. Nothing crazy, but should really help fill out the sound.

Only had about a hour and a half, but got most of the stuff out of the truck so Incan start routing wires and putting sound deadened on.
