    Ordered a pair of rotors for the rear at $25/ea. There was only 1 in stock and the other won't arrive until December, but at that price I'll wait. This will be the first time I'll be doing the rear brakes since I purchased the truck in 2015 (53K miles ago).

    You may want to order the parking brake hardware too. Here in the Northeast, sometimes it's a rusted hulk when you're done prying those drums off, and the local guys don't always stock that stuff. Or at least try applying them if you haven't since Bush was president. Mine stuck on and when I opened the wheels up I needed everything. Only about $50 if I recall.

    I put 2 New tires on the front. I had an alignment go south and continued to drive on it like a dummy.

    Installed WeatherTech mud flaps on the 2014EL tonight. Would have been really easy if it wasnt dark cold snowing and raining. My hands feel like they have arthritis now. I'm going to add an extra fastening SS screw/nut on the front inboard side(s) tomorrow. I don't really like they way they are only held on one side with the OEM screws in front wheels. I'm sure its fine I just like overkill engineering.

    Did absolutely nothing to the expy today but witnessed this guy rip his axles as he was turning.... pretty sure he's got an expensive tow coming up (trailer was filled to the top with dirt)

    Finally got my wife's wheels on. Night and day difference how it drives and corners. Even with ice on the ground. Before and after pics:
