Its missing swaybars and inner fenders but I consider those 'optional' anyway. I'm probably not going to install a snorkel, the supercharger tends to collapse them. 

 

I just upgraded to an odyssey battery. I'm thinking my alternator is bad though as voltage lags under load. ?

 

Had to preform parking lot modifications to get the battery to fit. New one was slightly bigger. Luckily I've got a lightly used snapon toolbox @ work. Saw/file... good enough till I can fab a bracket.

Thanks! I have a love hate relationship with that damn front replacement. I had been wanting to get a Fusion bumper for a while, but if it ain't broke don't fix it right. Well after the accident I had the opportunity to order something else. Another frontier gear ranch bumper would have been $1,200 dollars, and a fusion was $1,600. I was ready to pay the difference, but half the Cummins trucks in my area all run Fusion bumpers. I wanted to find something different, but still clean/modern, and found Trail ready bumpers made this for my truck. $1,400 wasn't so bad, until it arrived, in 5 different pieces! The truck accessory place didn't list the fact that this bumper was "modular" which meant bolt together. They told me 5 weeks to build, so I thought complete bumper. Shame on me for not doing enough research. Well it arrived at the body shop on a palate, with no assembly hardware! My body shop called to say that I needed to come look at the bumper to make sure it was what I wanted. I didn't understand what it meant till I got there and saw the pieces on the floor. ?‍♂️. Called and complained about the fact that it wasn't made aware to me that it would be a bolt together item. They informed me that if I wanted a credit I would have to pay for the return freight of $750. I kept the damn thing but demanded the hardware. I'm gonna take a grinder too it in the spring and strip it. My buddy who is a welder is going to weld it together, and my body shop is going to color match it. I love the way it looks, but if I had known it wasn't a one piece thing I would have just sprung for the fusion. You live and you learn.

c'est la vie
