Rear bumper is done. Turned out really nice. Swing down for spare removal and swing out to access the bed of the truck. 2 rotopax and a 48 inch farm jack in the swing out.

Fabricator buddy had taken some nice photos after finishing the rear bumper. Thought I'd share as it will likely never be this clean again..

Added a 270 degree awning and a lightbar to the front of the rack.

Some spring time trail driving, slick and fun in the backcountry this time of year
















Testing out the new awining, I think I'll get some good use from it.

It was, one hour labor charge. They zapped the tranny with new, updated code. Truck is running better than ever now, particularly the downshifting.

After two years I finally got around to shaving some foam from the bulge under my right leg (front of seat). Wow what a difference. Being 6'2 tall I have the seat as low as it will go, this puts the seat at an odd angle, why gm didn't provide a button to slant the front is beyond me. Once every x months the seat would cause me cyatic pain. Problem might be solved now, if not I'll keep reshaping the foam until it does. Stoked

Any pictures or tips for the process? I'm 6'3 and have the same issue sometimes. How does the fabric look after? I'm nervous it would look like saggy skin.

Sorry didnt take any photos. Under the front of the seat is a plastic lip, you can just pull it down and then pull back the cover and expose the cushion underneath. I used a sharpo knife and took about 1+ cm off of the foam where my right leg was being bothered. I did a real butcher job, lol, maybe a dremel would be the tool to use. The fabric isn't noticeably "saggy", in fact I think you'd be hard pressed to even tell. Makes a world of difference for me.

You guys know what works really nice to shave foam like this down? One of those electric turkey carving knives. I used to do a little bit of upholstery and we used one and it worked great! Sometimes a little silicone lube sprayed on the blades makes it move along a little better too.
