Just picked up my truck from CT dealer (vin ending in 305). Felt like everything was in slow motion as the sales manger brought her around after inspection. Totally agree with all the same comments about how much bigger and better it looks in person. Prior to inspection I had sent the manager a detailed document with all the TRX issues other forum members have been dealing with so the tech could put extra focus on those. Thank you to everyone who helped compile that. Drove it about 25 miles to the detailer for PPF, ceramic, and tint. Wish I had to home with me now but had to be done. Love how it rides and handles. Short drive but everything seems to be working well. Will post pics after detailing. Thank you to everyone who has helped make this forum what it is. Would of felt afloat at sea these past 6 months without you all.

Would you mind sharing your list? PM is fine but picking her up on Wednesday and there have been plenty of issues reported.

No problem, it is just a pdf that takes what is currently at the top of the "Reported TRX Issues" thread and puts some context around some of them.

Congrats! Dumb question, what is the benefit of doing both ceramic and PPF? I was planning to do PPF but thought that would be sufficent.

Others might be able to speak to this better than I as this is the first vehicle I’ve owned worthy of the treatment. I think the PPF is what will protect the truck from clear coat/paint damage due to debris like small stones kicking up. I am having this done on the whole front area of the truck and the back fenders where things really stick out and would take the most abuse. The ceramic acts like a thick powerful wax that keeps dirt from clinging on easily. It’s meant to help everything wash away much easier when self washing or going through a touch less car wash. I am getting the “9 YEAR GUARANTEED CRYSTAL SERUM ULTRA TOPPED WITH EXO”. I’ve seen many forum members on here that have done or plan to do both as well. Hope that’s helps
