I was also considering AFE’s intake...but have read a few things about it throwing a check engine light.
I've read that as well regarding the intake. Take a look at AFE's drop in Pro 5R filter. Better flow, no codes.

Cross bars and fishing rod rack arrived today but couldn’t install because the feet for the cross bars don’t arrive until Monday. Still waiting on KC lights and dead pedal...seem to be quite delayed for some reason.
In other news, I’ve also decided to freshen up my garage. I’ve got a bunch of open shelving right now that I’m going to replace with welded steel cabinetry and giving myself a work surface as well. Considering the epoxy floor too. I can still file this under “covid project.”

Installed my cross bars today and got my rod tube put together. Hope to get it mounted tomorrow. Progress every day!

Rod storage installed. Since it’s so narrow I’m considering a narrow cargo box for the other side of the cross bars. Downside to all this...clearance is now about an inch too much to fit into my garage. Figures!!

Pair of KC Hilites Pro6 Gravity LED driving lights installed today. Will wire them up tomorrow! Though I had originally ordered these from Quadratec, two days ago they updated my fulfillment date to 6/29. Canceled that order and found them on Amazon, got them today.

Got sound dampening material on about 1/3rd of the floor pan today—passenger side front and rear. The cargo area should be the easiest and then I’ll tackle the driver’s side. Surprisingly easy to remove the seats and carpeting.

What floor pan dampening did you go with, looking at doing mine. Thanks

I’m using the package that Hotheads puts together with Sound Assassin. I really don’t know any one product better than another but this goes on easy so far.
