Got 2 of 3 vehicles washed and waxed in the perfect weather today.
A little social distancing project. Ballistic Fabrication diff cover. Just got it back from powder coat. Much larger fluid volume then stock and an easier drain and fill. Plus looks sooo much better then the ford performance version.

Installed my forrdraptorlights.com fog light kit that I removed from my 2017.
Getting closer to being done. Added brackets and a few more tubes. Need to finish a mount for the jack, a few tabs for lights, then some finish welding, sandblasting and a coat of Steel it.
I got my windows tinted. Also, added 3 layers of ceramic coating. Truck looks great!!!
I thought those stickers add 10hp??
Here's a fun and exciting venture (sarcasm at its fullest)... the thin black trim around the outside of the moonroof developed these tiny crack lines at the two front edged of the forward most panel. I spoke to the service rep at the dealer and he said never seen this before but lets replace it since I only have 5k miles left on my factory warranty. So the entire front panel gets replaced with new glass. When I picked the truck everything operated perfectly but when i opened the entire sun shade, the new glass was a different color from the original rear. Apparently, the new glass is tempered vs laminated effectively causing the new glass to look grey/brown vs bluish. I had the service rep take a look and he was in complete shocked again! He said lets replace the rear as well this way everything matches.
The rear glass is now complete and finally a uniform color with no crack lines on the outside trim. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures of the crack lines but certainly have picture of the 2 different colored glass.
The take away is if your truck has the older laminated glass (bluish) and plane on replacing one panel, it will likely look different.
This was a fun process!
