Sometimes the simplest ideas work the best... that’s not a bad idea at all!Garage Floor Gorilla Tape For Back-Up Camera... Teaching An Old Dog A New Trick
Since September I've been using the mirrors on our new Ranger pickup to back into the garage. That works on occasionally when I get out of the truck, when the drivers door is wide open, the door touches the wall if I don't get the truck centered up just right.
Our Ranger is the first vehicle we own that has a back up Camera.
Today I put a piece of Gorilla Tape down the center of the garage bay where I park the Ranger. Now I can get the truck in the same spot, every time. And I added another piece of tape at the back of the garage so I know when I'm back far enough.
Mine is showing up tomorrow...I hope the drop off goes well since it's just meShrockworks Rock Sliders, with the Dimpled Tread Plates
We ordered a set of Shrockworks Rock Sliders on 12-16-2019 for our SuperCab. We don't plan to be sliding on rocks with our Ranger.. but there are other good reasons to go with the Shrockworks design vs running boards.:
The Rock Sliders:
- bolt to the frame of the truck, Running Boards bolt to the sheet metal floor of the truck,
- don't have the big gap between them and the cab rocker panel.
The form, fit and function of the Rock Sliders just seems so much better vs running boards.
But, just like running boards they'll also help protect the rocker panels from road debris, and protect the truck from people swinging their car doors into it in parking lots.
I'll post up some installation photo's once they arrive.
What's the plan Sid? If the semi driver isn't willing to help...... and depending on the design of the crate...Mine is showing up tomorrow...I hope the drop off goes well since it's just me
