  1. I considered one if these for a LONG time before I settled on an OEM tire carrier. I even contacted a couple custom hitch accessory fabricators and their offerings seemed built a bit better than wilco. My problem was I needed a swing-away for my bike rack and while the fabricators could do it, I really didn’t like how all hitch tire carriers have too much wobble that even a cam system won’t stop. I see now wilco offers a “hitch swing” to be added the tire swing. In my opinion it looks like a crap attempt to add a receiver to a product that wasn’t designed to include it, it’s not even centered...My point is when wd21 and r50s have the option for a beyond stout OEM tire carrier, why would you not install one? I’d personally leave the wilco stuff to the subaru crosstreks and the “bought not built” fanboys that don’t have any other options or know any better. I should note this is definitely not a personal attack and I respect your choice of products. I do hope you got a great deal because the $1k+ price tag on that stuff is absurd.

  4. I can’t stand discord. Too much going on in the program. My wife uses it for gaming to chat with her friends. I tried it twice and I couldn’t get on board with it. Forums are much easier to use. Sent from my Pathfinder

  6. It is. It’s a very built truck and looks great. Sent from my Pathfinder
  7. Leds are not as bright or have a long beam like hids. The only downside is sometimes they can blind other drivers in a halogen housing, but leds can do the same.
  8. Thanks Raingoat. I was over at Hawairish's this weekend while he was re-working his sliders. He used qx4 brackets to for his and they look great. He said they are about an inch higher than mine which is nice. I believe my step sticks out 1-2" more than originally with the sliders, so it makes the step really useful. For the arb compressor bracket, he made a specific "version" for that style setup like yours. We installed it on @Rockit truck and it was a couple of brackets that had an order to installation. I'm kind of actually digging the blueish light. I have the amber markers on the honeycomb grille and when the hood is open it gives a spooky Halloween vibe.
  9. Finally finished fridge slide and shelves. Sent from my Pathfinder
  10. I should note that I compared OEM cv axles vs new Cardone axles and the OEM give 10deg more swivel on the outer joint. That allows for a small spacer to be run with an OE spec strut or a stiffer spring without binding.
  11. I had a friend that lived in stockton,ca. Went to visit her a couple of times, aint nothing going on up there. Sent from my Pathfinder
  12. Not necessarily repetitive. I get occasional clunks with my cv shafts and they are solid. I just did the boots a couple of months ago too Sent from my Pathfinder
