There’s a connection under the drivers seat that frequently leads to an airbag light... I had to fiddle with mine recently after my airbag light came on.

Well, the custom rear bumper with swing outs, bicycle carrier, helipad, etc. is not going to happened any time soon. I was missing the step bumper I had on my old van, so I got a new (to me). Pushed back a little bit a couple of dents on the corners, sanded and painted it with Harbor Freight bed liner. It looks good, makes accessing to the rear a lot easier and doesn’t Kill the departure angle (the hitch takes care of that)

It just rained so it is wet.

It is holding very well in the areas I did good prep. The old rear bumper was chrome and didn’t other too much so it got some scuffs. The only spot that upsets me is under the drivers door handle. I guess I didn’t sand it and it peeled off a little bit. I see it every time I have to enter. Everywhere else is holding quite well even after going through narrow trails I didn’t get pinstriped too bad.

Tired of replacing the faded and messed up vinyl pinstripe I decide to paint it using tractor and farm paint. Ford Red. Tested a wider stripe in the rear door but decided for a more subtle all around.

Also added this lights for the under bed Storage. $10 for four of them intended for rock lights. I tried to put the link but they are no longer available. Too bad I didn’t get two sets .

Like 50% of Texas, I went to Colorado a couple of weeks ago. Great trip. Not sure if my 18 y.o. daughters would enjoy it since it implied climbing mountains, quite a bit of 4x4 trails and very little urban exposure, but they did enjoyed. We went straight to Lake City and then we did the Alpine loop. We also hiked the Handies and the Uncompahgre peaks.
