    Wasn't today, but been busy. Added a front receiver.
    Went to a weld shop and had this modified - https://www.curtmfg.com/part/31068 Using it as is it set way too low and reduced clearance and I would've had to take off/modify my skid plates.

    Pretty happy with the results. All bolt on and only cutting was that of the front grill for the receiver to go thru.

    Only thing I would've done different - Receiver pin sits out front of truck. Should've made a hole deeper in under hood so license plate can't be easily pulled. One would then have to go under truck/open hood to pull receiver pin. Fixed the issue by getting a locking pin. Also license plate doesn't sit out that far, pin was removed and it pulled slightly out. Will see if I have another pic...Update - didn't so got one.

    April 30th I had an Amazon delivery truck back into my parked truck....damaged the driver side rocker panel right before the cab. Did not do any damage to the cab just pushed in the panel. Long story short I went through their insurance company. Of course they gave me a dance a song how they are going to move the bed, remove all the graphics.....I smelled the bullshit. Getting a check for $2400 from them.....
    1. Called one of my vendors I deal with for dents. He popped out top part with no drama and worked out the lower damage as much as he could.

    2. Paid my other body shop guy I deal with $200 to use bondo with primer (have a feeling the insurance body shop was going to do the same thing)

    3. $750 paid to rewrap the bedsides completely and go solid wrap on the doors to contour the graphics.
    I am planning to keep tis truck for a long time. This route does not bother me. And you can not even tell.....

    Is it “dance a song” or “song and dance”?

    Sounds like you have some $$ left over to spend.

    Picked up some tire deflators in preparation for some light off-roading on the Vineyard this weekend (sand dunes).
