OK I lied on my Sunday "final pre delivery order" post. I ordered the Tazer Mini today. This will get installed at the same time bumpers, winch, RockSlide steps are done. Truck left Indiana hoping it lands at my dealership in the next 7-10 days.

I know the wait is horrible! Having parts waiting to be put on would've made it worse. I will keep watching for the reveal.

My favorite brown truck brought me Rydonair 13" antenna, .276" OD Rubber Tubing Seal (Welting for between the fenders and body) + install tools, and new Fastway Flash 10,000 trailer hitch. Still need my darn truck! :crying:

Truck landed at the dealership yesterday (Jan 10 2020). Someone should really start taking over/under bets on how long it is going to take me to go see it :giggle:
Hoping they get the 2" lift + Daystar 1.5" front leveling kit, steering stabilizer, tires and wheels on this week and I can bring it home. Also let Zeus off-road know that it is in so we can get me in the book for bumpers, winch and rockslide steps. I have never been so excited to pick something up with loose steering, horrible seats, and HVAC issues......sorry I couldn't help, should probably go knock on wood now.

Figured I would share my window sticker and purchase agreement. The PA includes the Mopar 2" lift, Steering Stabilizer, Exhaust and Cold Air Intake + Labor. MSRP was $58,380 - I paid $52,180 (pre tax, title, license) + $3,930.50 for parts and labor for a total of $56,110.50 + tax, title, license etc.

So I went and looked at my truck, still a work in progress and the only thing I don't like so far is the square exhaust tips. First off the minute you drag your bumper they are TOAST! and second the square tips are butt ugly (IMO).

Question of the day - chop them off and drop them out right behind the back tires or tuck them up and still draft out the rear?

I am replacing the bumpers with ADD Stealth on Feb 13th so while that is an interesting solution won't work.
