    Playing while bored today. Took the gear off before the road trip into Oklahoma and had some time to kill. These cars are fun to look at!

    Put the gear back on and took her out to the lake today. Way slower than the ram, but damn she did her job well and looked good doing it.

    Sometimes I just sit back and enjoy the views from work.

    yea i know looks are subjective, but personally this is the best looking CUV on the road, although one could put up an argument for the F Pace as well. I also love mine in Black especially in the sun. I know a lot of people don't like the chrome accents but against the black it does look nice

    Agree on all counts. I go back and forth on the chrome delete, but I like how subtle it is compared to the Ram I had before.

    In case anyone was looking at a cargo carrier. Here is what the $80 Amazon one looks like.

    What a day. Left at 0030 this morning and just unloaded the car about an hour ago. I am tired. But we had some fun along the way.

    States covered: Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Indiana, Illinois, and finally Michigan.

    This Amazon bag took a beating in the weather, but no burn marks or water inside the bag. So very happy with the purchase.

    Dogs had some fun and I found a winery on the way to stop and get the wife some stuff. Here is the bag at our arrival. I covered one side with a cooking sheet and left the other side open to see what happened with the heat.

    Nothing. That's what happened.

    Welp, the trip was fun and we are about to go on our 18 hour drive tomorrow night. So tonight is about relaxing while prepping the ride.

    I have a question about your roof rail/rack system. These are different than any of the others I've seen (the silver tall ones) what rack system are you using that connect directly to the flush muonted rails? How do they connect?

    I saw the part numbers, I'm just confused at how they are OEM(I know they are, I found them online) but when are they used by the OEM if the only ones I have ever seen are the tall shiny silver ones. Are they maybe for an older CX-5, but still fit?

    Were you able to do this yourself and did anything have to be removed? I had one put on my 2015 CX5 and if I remember right, the reason I decided to not do it myself was because the exhaust had to be removed in order to install the hitch. Or something to that effect. Either way, I remember not doing it myself because it wasn't as simple as just bolting it on.
