Calling All FR3 & Georgetown Owners!

Just logged over 12K on our 2018 FR3 and all is good, now starting to do some upgrades. Am I the only one who is totally annoyed how much the dash bounces up and down when hitting large bumps? Seems to me, if I don't make some sort of brace, in time it will crack or fall off!

I don't think it's going to fall off, but cracks and other problems are definitely possible. Mine has started to bounce and rattle so I also need to redo the factory joke.

Poor design from the start. It looks nice but way too much vibration. You need to beef it up with bracing and brackets.

Did it do this from the start? Ours does not do that. Yet.

Yes it bounced so much I took it back to the factory. They install a 2 x 4 support which I beef up when I got home. Poor engineering.
