How's the Ballistic Fab cover? Did it come with correct hardware? Can you use it with the stock gasket?

Haven't actually installed it yet, it's at the powder coater right now. Going to wait until my next oil change in 2k to swap them on. It did come with hardware and it re-uses the factory gasket. I think I've only put 1k on it in the last 5 months or so, been working like crazy and barely get to drive it. The battery was actually completely dead Saturday when I went to drive it because I hadn't started it in 2 weeks or more. The Trinity causes a little parasitic loss along with everything else and was enough to drain it completely. Door locks wouldn't even activate, had to open the door with my key.

Not really parts for my truck but I did get another sweet piece of gear for the trails. Been watching those ARB twin portable compressor setups on Amazon for awhile and they finally got down to a good enough price for me to bite the bullet and get it. $740 later and I had it at my door. I would like to have on-board air on my truck but I don't have the patience to wire all that up and I'm anal about making everything factory looking so I would never feel satisfied putting it all in. Plus this is completely portable and if someone needs air where I can't get my truck, or don't want to take my truck, I can still get it there.

Can't really say anything bad about it based on just the appearance, I'll have to try it out this weekend if I get a chance but it looks amazing. A little heavier than I thought but the way everything is packed in there and the fact you can air a 37" tire from 20psi to 50psi in 4 minutes with it, and run a variety of air tools is unbeatable to have on the trail, or out in the field or anywhere remote for that matter. Very happy with it. ImageImageImageImage

Those are sweet!

I really like the idea of having a well thought out on-board air system in the PW. But, that dang portable package keeps catching eye too... would be pretty handy being able to swap from vehicle to vehicle if needed.

Got around to putting these hood stickers on last night, only took about 2 hours or so with my OCD but they are perfect to my eye. ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
