    'Twas the night before delivery, when all through the house
    Not a creature was stirring, not even my spouse;
    The HPWC was hung in the garage with care,
    In hopes that a P85 soon would be there;
    The children were nestled all snug in their beds;
    While visions of rear-facing seats danced in their heads;
    And mamma playing Candy Crush, and I reading TMC.com,
    Was finding my brain having trouble keeping calm,
    When out on the street went by an ICE with such a clatter,
    I smiled from my bed knowing that gas would no longer matter.

    Delivery 10am tomorrow! Thank you so much to this entire community for answering so many questions and making me feel so comfortable making such a crazy (to those who don't know any better) purchase! I've been considering/researching/planning this for 10 months, and It would have been impossible without TMC.com. I have a strange mix of excitement and nervousness right now!

    Alright, this post took a solid 5 minutes...13.5 hours to go. Better go clean and prep the garage...again!

    I like it and I'm not a Christmas guy.

    Ditto. That's one of the better parodies I've seen--well done, MiddKid!

    Today is THE day!!! I hope you were able to get at least a little sleep tonight, but you don't have to worry too much. The adrenaline will keep you awake today but the agony of those facial muscles will hurt for the next week or two...or twenty, or.........

    He hasn't reported back in over 8 hours. I hope he is OK. I am getting worried. :)

    LOL! Thanks for looking out for my well being ;-)

    Actually got a few hours of sleep...but it hasn't taken me that long to fall asleep in a long time! Less than 3 hours!

    Oh, it happened. Amazing 20 minute drive to work (with a thumbs up from another car)...now I have to figure out how to focus on work for the afternoon. More pics later but here's the money shot for now!

    Measured it out and should be fine to run it behind. We'll see tonight!

    I wanted to mount it there in the middle just in case that Toyota Sequoia eventually gets replaced by an X!

    Great color. I went with tan interior but was a tough call.
