She sounds like a beauty.
I’ll post up some updated pictures next time my wife has the DSLR out... phone pics will have to suffice until then!

Wheels and tires finally came... about half the height of my electric car!

Wheels/ tires and suspension lift installed. Now sits at 77” - 78” tall with hard top on:

Last picture you can see the tires stick out a little less than 2” past the stock fenders. That is exactly what I was going for (whew!) Also, the wheels are +22mm offset so hopefully minimizing any undue stress on the axles.

Here’s a closer look at the stock LED taillights with smoke Lamin-X vinyl on them. I just wanted them to be a bit darker and this did the job! Never had much luck with these in the past because I am terrible at application of them but all surfaces on these taillights are completely flat or relatively flat so they turned out great and just what I was looking for

Here are some photos of the MOPAR Tri-fold hard tonneau cover installed. I don’t think it made any claims to be waterproof, or even water resistant, but it just floods the bed when it rains and there are spots where the fitment is a bit disappointing. I may return it. Open to any suggestions if anyone has had good luck with aftermarket hard tonneau covers

Here’s a photo of the dead pedal installed. Really pleasantly surprised at the build quality for an eBay buy!

Pedal here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/362673063217

I think it looks better than the one listed on Extreme Terrain website and is about $20-25 less expensive

I have the same exact cover and it doesn’t leak one bit. Did you follow the directions and install the drain tubes?

I did and I did. The right rail was/ is missing the rubber seal (which I’m sure doesn’t help) but it gets equally wet front to back on both sides. I checked the fitment several times prior to tightening everything down and then readjusted and retightened. I may just need to scoot the entire top toward the tailgate. Still tinkering around with it before I give up on it.

You probably need to adjust it but even then, it''s going to leak like crazy without that weather seal. The seal is there to keep out the water.

Phoned the dealership and they are replacing the piece that is missing the seal. Hopefully that will fix the leaking!
