    Is it really that little of difference? I feel like my 10 OR had much better visibility but it may just be the difference in models? The skewp really annoys me occasionally but I am considering putting the skewp light in it. Lol Screenshot_20181030-092024_Photos.jpeg

    You should do the 1 inch seat spacer mod. Seeing over the hood is significant and the comfort on my back alone was worth the 20 bucks

    Install is tricky if you dont unbolt the seat. After wrestling with the straps for 30 minutes, I unbolted the seat.

    Skewp light! You gotta do it!

    I don’t notice a huge difference on the highway or main roads.
    But driving off road and in tight spots there is definitely a visibility loss.
    The scoops do look good though.

    Well worth the time. I really like those covers. If i didn’t have leather that’s the route I’d probably go.

    So jacked up the truck and re torqued the spacers and wheels.... maybe my tires are too heavy and it’s struggling, maybe the tire is too wide for the wheel and moving, I dunno but it feels a little sketch

    Skewp light lol... I wonder how much of an advantage that would actually be... I'm skewptical

    The loss of visibility is there, but for the time spent on the road vs. the time on trails, I thought it a fair trade for the asthetics in MY particular case. The guy I switched for will be on trails much more.

    If anything, it will maybe encourage me to put a camera up front now! I've seen the mod at it looks great. Imagine having view of you approach angles live from the comfort of your seat

    I'm not trying to be a smartass, but my 2011 and my 2016 were both Sports with scoops. Never noticed the scoop while driving. I am 6'4" so that might have something to do with it.
