I greatly appreciate the offer. I am about as mechanically inclined as a 5 year old. I think i would screw something up, as easy as the videos seem. I have a friend who's brother works there and said it wouldn't be too much, but didn't really quote me. Im getting bummed out staring at the box..haha

Well the offer is there, believe me the rear axle is a breeze to do. About the hardest part is crawling under the car. I made me some 2x10 ramps 4 of them and drove on them so the car is level and went to it. done in about 1 hour and that is clean up and everything else. I am guessing the rear oil change at the dealer is going to be at least 100-125.

do the CAI install yourself. It really shouldn't take more than 15 minutes max. If I was closer to you I would volunteer to do the work for you, I bet one of the guys in El Paso would offer the help as well. I bet the dealer will charge you $50

So i think i am going to debadge all the red SS emblems. I just ordered the white SS and stock grill attachment for the front. I think the white SS will look good on the Ash Gray.
