Finished up my RK long arm install. Couldn’t be happier with the results. RK does an awesome job with high clearance……👍.
Everything is tucked up high and tight.

The biggest difference is the rear shock/control arm brackets……….

It was pretty labor intensive but I loved every minute of it. I had a great welder to burn on the brackets for me, he did a great job, and can’t thank my buddy enough for letting me use his lift. Poor guy got the covid the day I started so I never saw him during the install. Wait……as I’m typing this, it does seem awful coincidental……🤔………….… 😁….

Here’s the pile that came off…….:)

Happy Saturday! Just a few minor cosmetic things so that mine’s no longer full stock - little I’m sure compared to most, but it felt great and love how it looks 😃 . Door screw/latch covers, tailgate limiter (much more secure feeling), door sill protection, and a fuel door cover.

Off Amazon, Savadicar is the maker. Here’s a pic to help visually explain it as well. Inexpensive and super easy to swap out.

Thx but I’m a bit confused. They say 1pc but then show two pieces in the various pictures. A piece on the door and another on the door frame where it latches.
Edit: or are they just showing where it’s going to slide into the door?

How is the reception with the antenna in that location?
Have not really tested it yet. I get the weather channel with full signal but have not heard anyone talking in my area up here in the PNW. I am going to get the taller antenna in case this one does not work to well. I post back as soon as I do a test on it.

I see what you mean, but it’s not mounted in anyway on the door, simply showing how it fits once the door is closed.

Wired up my hidden antenna. The antenna sits high on the passenger side windshield on the front pillar. Reception pretty much the same. This was my first time unbolting my windshield and it was ridiculously easy. Only negative was my passenger sun visor broke by just twisting it out of the way dealer will have to replace under warranty.

Pretty cool. Looks like a great idea. I may give this one a shot too. Mine isn’t bad but I’m all for strengthening the tailgate.
