Sun visors are too low. Maybe the whole roof line at the windshield. Im only 5'11 but if I have to put the visor down I have to duck to see where Im going.

my clock is hidden behind my cb mic


One thing I wish the stock stereo had was an AUX in on the front. Tape adapter works, but there is a good bit of white noise that I think is due to using the tape adapter.

dash rattle is easily fixable, use a rubber tube and push it tight in, FIXED. sucks to have to fix it but it works great!
design flaw for mine is the push button 4x4, just not into the electronic stuff, mechanical is much better

I was amazed when I realized the truck did not come with a cargo light. This is damn near a necessity for anyone who uses their truck after dark. Needless to say, a REAL pain in the ass.

Other than that, I have been more than pleased with my truck.
