Reduces the angle and leaves one small step to get in/out.

That, plus a little training, and...

Re: Outside Temperature Sensor Problem

Re: Husky Weatherbeater/X-Act Contour Video Comparison Review

Just switched to the X-Act Contours, the 3 year old Weatherbeaters curled up on the edge near the door - enough to leave a sizable gap.

We'll see how the new mats behave over time.

Re: What Brake Controller will work?

That's where I mounted my P2 on my 2014 Overland, attached to the panel above the Air-Bag, no problems.

Re: CONFIRMED VisualGarage.com Shark Fin Antenna Group Buy

We have visited Canada many times over the years, surcharges on credit cards for foreign currency charges very common. It comes from the credit card company, not the business.
