Goofy!


POS Magellan - I guess it's not a POS, I was just disappointed that no upgraded TOPO maps were ever offered after they said they would offer them.

I like it. It does stick out a little far compared to others, but I know its airbag compatible so that was an important factor in going this route versus some of the others. If you won't mind cutting the plastic bumper to act as a filler, its a good option IMHO.

I might lose half and inch but I'll end up with a better ride and that's what is most important to me. The rear leafs in the OME setup were designed to support the back end, even with extra gear weight in it and from what I've heard its a great setup.

yea Im getting them instead of shackles myself. but pairing them with rear radflos. I plan on the OME xtra leaf for my pack to give me 2.5" and help with the rear bumper.

Timbrens might be a good investment as well since our stock bumpstops are hard and dont squish.

He's not being hung per say but in classic goofy fashion he is hung up on the strap for his bag. He's my travel mascot and always stays in the truck. :)

I have it mounted to the roof rack. If you look at the first pic I have posted, look at the rear of the factory rack and there is a little silver post which is the quick disconnect for the antenna. I typically don't leave it on all the time.

Thanks for the compliments.

Gotcha, I've been looking around for the best spot and way to mount a firestik. Not too convinced on drilling into the trunk door jamb, so i may do this route...

Is 3' sufficient for you?
