Installed the Lund Bed Extender (purchased at local Canadian Tire) .

Bit of a pain since the mounting bracket template was not included in the box, but nothing a couple MGDs couldn't sort out.

Also switched out the highbeams to Silverstar Ultras and the low beams to Silverstar ZXEs

First oil change on my 21’ Rebel today. Installed a Valvomax for future changes. My take: wrap a bag around the sway bar before draining for easy clean up, loosen filter and drill a hole in it with ziplock bag around it and let it drain, then use another bag to cover while you unscrew. This was all my take from multiple vids and posts. Yeah, the filter location sucks but take your time and very little mess can be achieved.

Got my cracked exhaust manifold cover replaced (under warranty) and did the full 4x4 and brake fluid replacement. Next week it goes in for a 5" RC lift and AFE shorty headers. I'll be selling the manifold cover if anyone on here needs one a (relatively) new
How did you discover the crack. And was it the manifold or the bolts.

I just installed the OPT7 60” light bar, wasn’t too bad of a job but doing it under a full south Florida sun was a PITA. Need to buy a house with a garage next time lol.

Tail gate just barely clears the clips and with the Curt 56584 harness the wiring was the easiest part.
Where did you get the clips to clear the wire harness under the tailgate

Used it to pick up our trailer we just bought. The trailer brakes work but i cant get them to show in the instrument read out. I will use my sons android tablet to see if that does the truck. I am also curious to see how my MPG is effected. I'm figuring that I will lose about half.

Nice trailer. What length. Was wondering how the truck would do with a trailer.

Installed Mopar bed step today. Found it best to remove exhaust tip to allow extra room for loosening / tightening bolts. Some big bolts, had to use the sparkplug socket on them. Instructions called for bolts to be torqued to 124 ft lbs. I only got to about 80 ft lbs as that's the extent my wrench goes too. I'm hoping that's enough to keep everything secure.....

Installed Mopar Wheel Well Liners. This was not particularly difficult. I can't believe these don't come standard on a 2021 Ram 1500 Laramie. I was able to get them to throw them in after the fact. Looks much better. Also put my Vinyl window Decal of my Boston buddy Link on my back window. tempImageTZlEh5.jpg tempImagekeCxi1.jpg tempImagerL1ziI.jpg tempImagetfIN0C.jpg

I used the clips that came with the light bar. I used nylon spacers to clear that wire harness and the bumps in the ends. 1/4” spacers at the ends and 1/2” spacers in the middle.

Hauled the ole piggy to a 120mile dual sport. Truck squats a bit more than I expected with one bike in the back.

Last couple of weeks: mishimoto catch can, hellwig sway bar, blackvue 750x dash cam, line-x bed liner, and bedrug xlt bed mat.

Last thing before winter is to take it to Krown for rust protection.
