Car Update: Crossbars, Engine Bay & CB Radio

Hello Trek friends! For this blog post, we have some small goodies to talk about! First up, we got crossbars! We've been researching some for awhile now (Thule/Yakima) and ended up finding some good reviews on CargoLoc crossbars, so we ended up getting them! Here they are straight out of the box:

We removed the brand stickers on each side and painted them black to match the theme:

Here they are installed. Overall, they are great for the price.

Next up, we got an engine cover from SSD Performance! Easy install and nice improvement to the engine bay aesthetics! Here's a photo:

While we were in there, we also went ahead and replaced the factory air filter with a KNN drop in filter!

We also picked up a Uniden Pro 520XL CB Radio! Here she is:

We decided to mount it on the side of the center console on the passenger side. It was an easy install and after a few screws this is how she looks. There is just enough room for the passenger seat to nearly fully extend to each end and no interference from the glove box opening. We found this to be the best mounting point for our needs.

The CB Radio comes with a detachable antenna that you mount on your car via a magnet on its base! Whenever I don't use the radio, I just stow it in the back so its not on the roof 24/7.

Well, that pretty much covers everything that we installed this weekend! Until next blog! Happy modding!
