      Looks great! Here is a hint, buy some Turtle Wax Ice spray wax and use it on your black plastidipped wheels. Just spray on and wipe off. It will help water bead and give them a satin finish. I have used it for a couple years now on my truck and it is really amazing.

      Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
      I doubt you'd get very far here with that tinted windshield. It's illegal to add additional tint below the windshield's AS-1 marks.

      Not saying its the case here, but there are people that get tint exceptions due to light sensitivity. They get certification from a optometrist and then an exemption from DOT and they can tint their windshield. Also many law enforcement officials tint their personal vehicles windshield for safety concerns regarding their family.

      How do you like that Yakima coffin? Is that attached directly to your OEM crossbars? I'm debating on that or the Thule 613 Pulse Alpine.

      I like it a lot (Yakima Skybox 18). I have had since new around 2007 and originally used on a different suv. Its been sitting under the deck almost 5 years, cleaned it up and installed it yesterday on the oem cross bars. Still works great, as new. No issues with locks or anything, just a little faded with its age. I did have to adjust my powerlift gate, as this box hits the gate when fully opened. Made it stop about an inch sooner, so now all good.
