Do you have any pictures of your overhead storage net mod? I am researching this and trying to find a good net.

I guess armor on the D90.

On the series, the best (and only) upgrades are the cupholders, and overdrive

My OD didn't make any noise or whine whatsoever from day one. It could be due to my transfer box being virtually new.
