Something just popped in my head. Do the wheels come with new pressure sensors or do you have to use originals and what highway tire pressure is recommended for the larger tires

I couldn't find a license plate bracket that didn't have something I didn't like about it, most block something or hang down in danger territory. So, I made one from 1.5" aluminum angle that I had powder coated. I picked up a SS powder coated frame to trim it out.

I wanted a camera rail, but the ones I've seen specifically made from some of the vendors are outrageous in price.
My solution was an ARCA rail, a cheap phone mount with articulation, a knob from a Woodcraft t-track accessory kit so I can quicklyrejoice it, and a small hardboard spacer.
It's getting tried out this weekend. I'll let you know how it works.

Looks sturdy enough! That's a forward/reverse facing dash cam? (Definitely on my must-have list, especially after watching so many YouTube videos featuring car accidents.) My only concern is that with all that tech, it may compromise your field-of-view. I guess this weekend will reveal if that's the case. ;)

I’m hoping to swap the old TPMS sensors into the new tires, other wise it’s over $100 for new ones!

Max tire pressure in these are 40 psi so pretty normal ride pretty sure!

Thanks Im Still undecided 35" or 37" I will do a 3" lift and then by the wheels. I like the method 705, but haven't decided on offset, probably 0 offset which, if I understand, should push them out 2". I do off-road a lot so time will tell

This is probably the best deal I've seen from a vendor at around $90. Just trying to decide if I'll actually ever use one. I may use my old Go-Pro but I could mount that with just a single screw in mount.

So far it's working for me. I've only got about $30 in it. I'll need to tweak it before I take it out for some good vids.

I installed the tailgate table today. I made it with a custom acrylic backer so the Bronco logo would stand out better.

I had a problem with one of the nut inserts not catching the bolt and tightening down right. I had to fiddle with it a bit before it would work. And then I snapped one one of the gate cables. It was kind of weak sauce. I’ll have to find a better one. :mad:

The molle pack kit was easy to attach.

Nicely done, Christopher! I think the tail gate table is one of the most attractive and practical modifications we can make. The Molle containers double its usefulness. I also like the way the "BRONCO" type pops now. ;)

So another little thing that makes a big difference. I was driving with top down and I kept hearing this flapping and banging noise and I realized it's the seat belts flapping so I purchased these seat belt retainer clips super easy to install looks good tucks everything away!
How close is it to badlands orange?
