Official What Have You Done To Your Truck Today

Other subforums have it, so why can't we?

I'll start off:
Painted and installed front bug/wind deflector and had windows tinted 15% all around.

Can we sticky this?

Built and rewired a 2 meter radio antenna. Checked SWR on both the 10 meter/cb antenna and the 2 meter. 2 meter is not good so more to do sometime.

15% tint in Florida is obviously way, way below the 70% DOT will allow for commercial. Not sure what it is for general drivers but my daughter got a nasty ticket for her windows. She had to have all that stuff removed and it was not easy. Ended up she sold the truck and bought a big SUV because of that. Do not know what her windows measured but seemed to be lighter than yours. Yours are so dark it's like an obstruction on the road you cannot see through. Don't drive at night unless you have super good vision.

Guessing you have a good chance to get stopped for that tint.

I'm not commercial...also, no tint on windshield. Legal is 25-30%, but I have had cars with limo 5%, and I have never been stopped for it.

I guess because it's illegal, I can't tune my truck? Also guess I'll have to wear my seatbelt and go the exact speed limit.

Well at least you know it is certainly below what I think is a 28% regulation.

Just look at your top picture. If there were a car, motorcyclist or really, any vehicle behind you while you are stopped at a turn, oncoming vehicles cannot see through. It's a common safety issue to others when you become a blocking obstruction in the road. Not remotely related to a comparison with tuning.

Pretty truck. Keep it nice and enjoy.

For F sake. Let this be a what did you do today thread not a spear chucking contest.

This is why we can’t have nice things.

Let's get back on track. Anyone else put a special touch on their truck recently?

10% More- Can you tell me what antenna mount you used for the 2m/70cm antenna. I traded my 2014 3500 that had a perfect st. steel NMO bracket that fit on the front fender. I believe it was a Comet bracket. It doesn’t even come close to fitting the new 2019 fender. I’m hoping that I don’t have to drop my pride and use a magnetic mount.......just like I did 40 years ago with my first CB antenna. ��

Got the same truck. Is the deflector a factory item, or aftermarket? Is it attached with brackets or adhesive? Any wind noises with it? Love the look.
