From what I gathered the 2000-2004 are the most reliable, but have the 4-spd and less power VS the 05-06 but don't like the idea of a non serviceable transmission. Right now the truck will be used as a daily and for towing and some offroad, future i may use it fro traveling and camping out of...
Anyone have problems with the enclosed style cold air intake? like when they go offroad, does the air filter get more dirtier like the open CAI, or the same as the factory air box? i am considering getting one for my truck, because it is a daily driver/tow rig and only go offroad occasionally.
Took a few days to the Keys and Everglades.

Mission accomplished! Within 6 months of each other, I've been to the northern most and now the southern most point of US-1 in my truck.

What is the 3rd skid plate for? I ordered the OEM front and transfer case which includes a longer piece like a crossmember for the skid. I haven't installed them yet either because the holes are there but not threaded on my truck.
