What did I do? Yesterday I unplugged my PacHybrid and forgot to close the charging door. Ripped the exterior cosmetic covering off on the side of the garage door trim. Luckily the clips were still intact and it slid back on.

How much did your running boards cost you? They look sharp! Any complaints so far?
Great looking Paci by the way!
I had to order mine and knew I would need to paint as they don't do them in tusk white, so I ordered bright white and since they were already painted (Prepped well) the painter scuffed them up and painted them my Tusk white by color matching the fuel filler door and he was spot on. Don Davis is where I ordered the boards and asked the manager in parts if he would match the online price I found of 530.00 for the running boards. So that was 583.00 for the parts. They had not ever done a Pacifica and so they took 4 hours to do it (that is what they wanted to bill me) but they used the back up painter, so we worked out a deal since I have purchased 9 vehicles from them in the last 6 years and all service gets done at Don Davis. I ended up paying 1080.00 total. I will say the reason I had them do it instead of my body shop is I wanted all of it covered under warranty. Too many wires, the hands free door sensors and the painting would need to match, so it was worth it to me.

I have no complaints at all. I am not as nervous as I use to be with the running boards on the 5th gen models as those factory boards stuck out way to much, these tuck under more. Love them.

Awesome, thanks for the info! I have an appointment to get tint in a week and a half, and will call about running boards tomorrow. The little man and pregnant wife will appreciate them quite a bit.

signed up my Tusk white for monthly car wash place, one price and can take it as many times as you wish for car wash.
I wish I could do that, but have 9 vehicles (5 classics) but 4 daily drivers and I would need for each.....second reason is I want no mishaps, don't want them to scratch up my running boards if they don't get it on the line just right. So, I just go down to a certain wash that has an accurate times, is never broken and is 75 cents a minute, then hop on the 161 toll to drive back home at 80 to dry it off. Costs about 8 bucks to wash and vacuum and it's alone thinking time...works well.

I keep seeing tint related posts around forum here but could not understand what is this new kind of tint that is not dark but at the same time allows you to reduce temperature inside car. Can someone please share more info on this. As per NY State law tint of car anything more than what came from factory (in terms of darkness) is illegal and will not allow your car to pass inspection. So I think I'd like to go the route of clear tint that helps with keeping car inside cool.

I use to part own a tint shop back in the 90s and we only had the dyed tint material. I took my Pacifica to a lady that owns a shop that does wrap as I was having all of that chrome wrapped in black and she said she also did tint. I had the dealer add tint to just the front two windows as I was going to add another 35% on top and 5% on rear, she said it was cheap tint and she would redo and quoted me on adding tint on rear over the factory laminated glass. So I said ok, I want 20% in front and 5% on rear. I came the next day to get my van and as soon as I saw it I was pissed as the front were not dark enough to be 20% (35% is the legal limit) and she said it was 20% and said that it is ceramic tint and it is easier to see through, but still blocks the UV and all that other sun damaging stuff. Sure enough, I took my tint meter out and it was 19% light omittance! I still wish it were darker so I can't be seen screaming at idiots on the road, but it is easier to see out of at night and actually keeps the van cool.

Waking this thread up. I already did my HID/LED lights, my tints, etc. So I guess I'll just share what I did yesterday: I went to the Home Depot and got 5 bags of red natural mulch for the wife and the garden. :smile2:

Man I love driving this thing around town...

It is difficult to find a light tint that blocks 99% UV rays AND rejects a high percentage of solar energy, but I just had the front windows of our Touring L+ tinted today with LLumar AIR 80. From the brochure, it allows 78% visible light transmittance, blocks 43% of solar energy, reflects 9% visible light and still provides 99% UV protection. Wife and I are getting up there in years and find it difficult to use the outside rearview mirror when backing up at night in my SUV that has darker tint (must buzz down driver side window). While most folks are interested in the cool looking darker tint, we mainly wanted the UV protection to save our skin and the leather interior. LLumar makes an even lighter version called "LLumar AIR 90" (allows 86% visible light tansmittance, but rejects only 28% of solar energy). Both products, perhaps more the AIR 90, are often used on top of factory tint for added resistance against solar energy.


FWIW, our previous '10 Town & Country was tinted with a similar light product and the leather interior looked almost new when I sold it to the first person to see it back on May 5. I'm a big believer in tint for UV protection.

Had a week long trip. Notes:
I can't really say I notice much of any difference driving with only me or or six adults in the van. Driving 75 to 80 mph on the trip home: right now dash reading is 30.1 mpg (gallons into miles would probably be 27+mpg). Really easy to pass someone going 60+mph and barely pushing the pedal, look down at the mph and see 85. ESS worked flawlessly. On the trip home ran into a bunch of love bugs :mad:,(they will remove paint if not cleaned off), so as soon as I got home I washed the van. Noticed a small area on the right front edge of the hood has a little corrosion showing. Hadn't noticed that before. I thought I needed to add oil when filling with fuel, but it had only sat a few minutes before checking(approximately 5000 miles since oil change). Checked again after sitting approximately 10 minutes and the oil level was right in the middle. After 6 months, the passenger side door is a little noisy again (it was lubed right after I got it).
Overall opinion: while the van is not perfect, it does seem to be smooth operating van that I have done very little to other than adding fuel and washing at the car wash occasionally.

Yesterday I had the oil & filter changed (haven't added oil since the last oil change 5,800 miles. The oil monitor didn't say it was time to change, I didn't want to wait any longer). Passenger side sliding door was lubed (it was a little noisy). Tires rotated. 17 point inspection. Recall U50 (manual park release) and Recall U64 (Reprogram powertrain control module) were done. Atlantic Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep did the work (not my closest dealership) in about an hour. :smile2:

Tuesday the 12v to 5v adapter will arrive for the AUKEY dash camera that came today. Will install it and wait a few days for the Weathertech front mats to arrive.

Installed my WeatherTech mats. Great coverage, and I really like the one piece design for the second and third row. Yes, they get in the way of stow and go a little bit, but I'll take that for the coverage especially in the winter. Stow and go is still plenty doable; just not as easy as before (no mats).
