No, just trying to get the general idea for it. Hopefully order it here in a couple of weeks and put it on when the warmer weather gets here. Thanks for the help.

Put it in when you get it. Weather be damned.

Mine is far more exposed than the 2000 and newer it was designed for, and I have no problem running it through the winter.

No problemo. I put mine in on superbowl sunday when it was about 0*F. I took the edge off with a little Nibco heater though. Also, they send you a full set of instructions with pictures that will tell you exactly how to do it. Just be careful removing the plastic pop-in rivets for the fender liner, they can get wrecked pretty quick.

But I'm sure the winters are alot more milder in Oregon than here or even ND.

Might as well paint the calipers while I have the wheel off.

This has been the coldest winter for us in a while. We've hit -30*F a couple times so far. Topped out at 9*F today, wasn't too bad out.

Been one of the snowiest here. We were at 65 yesterday, and with the wind today, felt like 15. Dont really have a garage to work in either....or a jack for that matter.

Ahh, yeah. That might hamper the progress. I'm actually in the same boat, I did my install in my brother'* garage.

This snow here has been ridiculous lately. If you really want to get it done you could come down here perhaps and we could knock it out in 30 minutes.
