Mines right above my right knee and somethings gets in the way.
I still have to mount my HAM radio and was thinking right about were your maglite is.

Hasn't gotten in the way yet, except when my wife is driving she has to put the seat up just slightly too far where it kind of touches the CB radio. I'll get a picture of the CB side soon. For me where I have my seat adjusted, no problems at all!

I debated putting it in the back, but it just made more sense up front for my uses. I also liked the location here versus the door, the door seemed sketchy with it always being opened and shut, so I decided to stick it here.

Nice placement.  Let me know how those hold up in a year or two, the AA ones were always breaking, they got fragile from heat cycling.  Luckily I found a guy on ebay who makes a fiberglass version.  No idea if he does the C size though.

Gas update from the snorkel:

These are from the dash estimated MPG, also note driving conditions are always different, and this is an extremely small sample size.

City: (Flagstaff stop and go)
Pre-Snorkel: 12.1-12.5 mpg
Post-Snorkel: 13.8-14.2 mpg

Highway:
Pre-Snorkel: 17-19
Post Snorkel: 19-24

Pre-Snorkel: 12.1-12.5 mpg

Highway:
Pre-Snorkel: 17-19

I don't believe you. I see saw 13-14 mpg combined.

Then again, my spark plugs were nonexistent, and I had a TON of blow-by buildup.

Also, stop making me miss Flagstaff.

Before I modded out my 05 se I got 18.4 combined constantly. City I was around 15, and highway I would be around 22-23. This was just when I had 285's, and a 1.5 inch lift.

Slider update

Made by Sasa from club

Used Rustoleum Hammered black to spray paint them
The color ended up matching the Pro 4x wheels almost perfectly!

Finally got a somewhat good picture of some updates from the past couple weeks for everyone:

Here is the solution to the rear bumper gap, although not perfect, I could not be more thankful for Vic helping me (pretty much doing it all) relocate the rear bumper up 2 inches:

(http://i.imgur.com/lH6N5YW.jpg)

Also I blacked out the front of my grill / bumper, looks so much cleaner, I don't get why they didn't send them black from factory:

It has been a while!

I will post pictures soon, but here are some updates:

Bed lined my sliders Black
Bed lined my rear bumper, side steps, and recovery points

Changed oil (22,000 Miles) Mobil 1 Synthetic, Fram oil filter, and new wiper blades

Nothing crazy, just getting her back up to speed after being bogged down at work
