Picked up some milestar’s for Black Friday. 10% rebate plus 10% off through a local club I’m a part of. Discount had no problem fitting the 37” spare in its oem location.

Also scored some deals on a Tazer lite, genright stubby bumper, warn 10k winch, and a Pace Edward bed cover.

Lift is getting installed Monday :like:

Leer cover surprised me in the mail.. couldn’t wait to put it on. Still need to make some fine tuning adjustments, but install was a piece of cake. Love the look and functionality

I meant to bombard you with questions earlier when you first posted this: how are you liking the cover? Is it the metal or original version? Would you mind posting a few more pictures of how it was installed? I'm specifically wondering if the solid sides can be (carefully) cut out to accommodate a Trailrail mounted rack.

I’m liking it so far! It’s the full metal version... I chose this one because leer is supposedly working on the explore series rail attachment that will allow a rack option.

for now, I ordered some KB Voodoo brackets and cross bars (https://www.kbvoodoo.com/shop/jeep-gladiator-aluminum-hi-rise-crossbars-for-use-with-tonneau-covers) that I can attach my ski racks to. They should allow me to use the cover without any modification. I’m still waiting for my trail rail system to arrive, so I haven’t fully buttoned everything down yet

Great, thanks! I saw the KB Voodoos and wondered if they would be a good solution. I also saw the Explorer Rails from Leer and have chatted with Yakima about them; they haven't tried them out yet, but believe they will work with their Tonneau Kit 1 adapter. They've added it to their fit test queue and will let me know once they've confirmed.

off of Wedge Creek FSR just north of Whistler, BC
Ah, nice; I'll have to check that out. The area north of Whistler and Pemberton is beautiful; I've been wanting to explore more of the FSRs up there, including the Hurley.
