Finally had a chance to install the AVS aeroshield and do a carbon fiber overlay on the front bow tie after washing the beast.

First try for the overlay turned out pretty good, but not perfect. I didn't buy a precut sticker, cut my own.

Now to do the same with the rear bow tie....

well I swapped out the headlights to put in blacked out housings to match the truck. I completely detailed, washed, clayed, buffed, waxed, full interior detail (pics in the garage do not do the full exterior detail any justice!).

I used it to run a few errands yesterday. It needed driving after a week of not moving.

Installed P3 brake controller, picking up new Jay Feather 25BH tomorrow.

I guess these controllers are powered at all times and go off automatically when no movement is present?

Last week we had the timing belt, serpentine belt and water pump replaced for maintenance (manufacturer recommends the t/belt every 9 years). The dealer also replaced the radiator for free because the technician poked a hole in it. Then this week we discovered a bad oil leak after making a 200 mile road trip. Took it back to the dealer Monday and picked it up today. They had to replace the factory transmission oil cooler. I sure hope the trans didn't loose enough fluid to cause damage. They didn't charge me anything for this subsequent repair, but I was a bit disappointed that they didn't power wash the underside of the truck. I'll have to make another call and trip to the dealer to get that done. Happy though that it's not leaking now.

Topped off the fuel before grabbing the trailer from storage. This will be my first tow using 89 octane fuel instead of 87 (as recommended in the manual, I've got a few tanks of daily driving, and so far it's a definite improvement). So far, I can tell it tows better; typically I get a down-shift on one particular hill, and last night the truck didn't down-shift. That's a good sign in my mind, and I look forward to seeing how she does this weekend out on the road. I'm really trying hard not to have an observational bias (placebo affect) but this weekend I'm going somewhere I've never been before, so I won't be able to directly compare how the truck does on the same route.

Had a new steering wheel put in yesterday because it was worn very badly.
The new one is cracked and sharp and cuts my hands. Replacement has been ordered by the dealer,
