I recently bought a bottle opener to put in the exact same place! Is there any wiring or anything under that panel I should know about before drilling into it?

You're going to have to take off the driver side brake light. Then it is just sheet metal where you're going to mount bottle opener. Put the bottle opener there and make the marks where you're going to drill. then just put some nuts behind it. Solid as can be. Used a few times when I was washing the truck or adding mods. Haha I always get compliments on it too.

Here is my write up: just use a smaller grinder for a better hole. I just did mine with the tools I had at home and winged it.

Great looking truck. It's amazing how much more proportional the AC trucks look compared to DCSB.

Just looked up what you said. No idea about it. Just knew about HIDs. They work great otherwise.
