Took it out on the highway and floored it WOT about 10 times on a 15 min drive.

Remaining 2/3 bottle is going into oil later on, before next upcoming oil change.

Didnt cure any tick though, but i am pretty sure engine is clean now

Can I still just plug it into the D2D port or would i have to set it up W2W to use the D2D port for the Smartstart?
As far as know you would have to wire the DB-ALL W2W to get use of the D2D for the smart start. From what I have gathered, as you move up in the DEI line-up, you also get multiple ESP / D2D ports that would eliminate this issue.

Got rid of the wood grain and painted it to match the exterior. Also installed my scanner.

I made some brackets out of some thin aluminum sheet metal then painted them black and mounted with screws and double sided tape so there was no chance of squeak or rattle.

Did some carbon wrapping, installed some switches and finally got my trans temp gauge wired up. Don't have the temp sensor installed yet, so it's just chilling at 300*. Only switch hooked up is the front lights to my D2s in the grille, still have to buy some reverse lights and a big light bar of some sort for the others. Gotta figure out how the hell to wrap the steering wheel too...

Nice I am going to be doing a bunch of trimming this summer I want to fit 32s on my bb and upcountry springs, I know I will have to at least take 2" from the front and thinking 1 1/2" in the back. I guess we will see I don't want to lose any offroad capability,

I fit 265/70r17 with no trimming. Had slight rub when backing up hill at full steering lock, and minor rub on rear shocks when flexed, but the rub on the front bumper i let fix itself, within a month it wore enough plastic away (barely an eigth of an inch). This is 2.5" front, 2" rear lift. Cooper at3's.

I sit at 5" of lift and still had to trim front and rear.

Before I did I had to hammer in the corner of my exhaust pipe by the rear tire, my tires rubbed bad on the control arms, and I still had to trim about an inch off my front bumper.

The overall tire size is going to determine what you will happen. I like to fully stuff mine to the fenders.

Yeah I took all the trim out. Piece on dash above glove box can be accessed from behind it, had a few nuts to loosen behind it. The radio bezel and ashtray come right out and then I masked out what I didn't want painted. The door panel pieces have posts that are factory melted to the inside of door panel. Trim the melted part with a razor knife and they come right off. Paint those and then just use liquid nails or a heavy contact bathroom caulk adhesive to put them back on and allow them to dry. DO NOT USE GORILLA GLUE!

This is with some bald 265/70/17s, as you can see it is tight even with a 5" lift on short arms with no spacers. Now if your just looking to hop curbs and mall crawl then it might work for you.
