New to me 2016

Post by nrcarone » Mon Jul 27, 2020 8:49 pm

I just purchased a 2016 and am so happy I found this site. I look forward to modifying and enjoying the truck. Are there any must do modifications that you would do to a 2016?

I'd say it needs a radio and another antenna or two. :roll:

Thank you for the welcome to the group. The truck has 50k miles on it and is in great shape overall. The only issues I have found with it so far is that one of the body colored panels on the rambox is a bit loose. I like to get a set or running boards or rock sliders for it. I have already ordered a locker bypass kit for the truck. It is going to be my daily driver with weekend duty as a hunting/camping rig.
