A product called speedliner. It is basically Rhino Liner but can be sprayed out of a "hopper" gun or a HVLP. I cut the exhaust and then painted a resonator tip with the speedliner with the HVLP. Painted the cut exhaust with rust inhibitor and then adjusted the tip to the length I wanted it to hang down.

The phone is plugged into the Aux port and a dual USB charger in the accessory port in the dash. I have it all run under the console with a extension for the tablet mount in the back of the truck so my daughter can watch her DVD's that I converted to MP4 or Dish "Hopper"

I used this and just removed the rubber arms off the back and used heavy duty 3M tape to hold it in place. Works great since the phone is at my fingertips and it is "bluetoothed" (is that a word? lol) to my GPS for hands free operation.








Like my custom seat covers?

I bought the Ultra-Gauge with the "Swivel" mount. They sell a "Suction" mount but I have never really had much luck with suction mounts on the windshield so I took a chance and bought the swivel mount. It worked perfectly and mounted where there was just the right amount of cable to run under the headliner, down the A pillar, and to the connection with just a little cable to spare. It was like it was made for that location.




Yes.... I am so OCD that I even made the cable match up with the "Dot Matrix" bend on the windshield

Yeah man.... Don't do a bull bar. They make the truck look like it has a under bite IMO. The N-Fab bar literally took 20 mins to mount and was well worth the price.

This is true. Bed liner tends to be a bit more durable. It may even pay to put some one exposed undercarriage and or parts of the frame. I'm just paranoid about rust after I brought my car from the northeast to Texas and it rusted faster than I could have imagined. So I am overly cautious when it comes to rust.
