I've been running the battery for some time and had over 50 starts, so there must be some charging. It had tested OK in the fall, but I guess could test again.

Two added hurdles. Dealers saying they can't match website pricing, and addition of fees and taxes that are their own arbitrary fees.

Lots of aftermarket tachometer or multifunction gauges are available for low cost. Lots of under $100 options that plug into the ODB2 port, but as Black2010 says there should be no need.

Does not seem to be a bad deal if you stay under your mileage. In my view being too high or too low on your mileage is costly on a lease unless you plan to buy it out.

The Pop & Lock Tailgate Lock uses your existing handle.
The Bully Tailgate is a replacement for the existing handle.
I've had both. I like the Bully as it leaves more room to grab the handle.

If I get a garage it would not be to store the truck, it would be to wrench on it.

I have a few vehicles strewn about so I try and start what has the most gas and drive what starts, is least broken, or suitable for a task I need. Or I get board and rent or borrow something.

My original thinking was to lower the front using the torsion bars for free and if I start bottoming out or don't like the feel pay for drop spindles and the related parts.
