Re: Painted grill and tailgate?

Re: 430N IPhone 3G streaming resolution

I can confirm that the screen off trick works with any Bluetooth streaming. Screen on = chipmunks. Screen off anything I have plays fine.

Re: Gas milage? Post your results!

It is a bit lighter than I thought too. I would say it sort of has a dusty saddle look to it. Don't get me wrong, I love it. I'm just trying to describe the color.

Re: Can you change out the interior TRIM? Anyone try? Anyone interested?

I plan on changing the Overland wood trim to the Summit "Black Olive" so let us know if anyone makes a swap so we know the hassle factor or labor cost.
