    Hey all,

    Got the truck in July 2011.

    EDIT: 14 Sep 11

    Just finished putting in my new AVIC-X930BT with Scosche Dash Kit and Wiring Harness for my JBL Amp in the Truck. Works like a champ! Thanks to all who have posted DIY threads and uploaded photos with info on where wires are and tips on where to put things. It helped A LOT!!!!

    I couldn't figure out which one looked better as far as lighting, so here are two different pics. I really like it because it is different, but not too different. Really adds to the look of the front of the truck.

    Re-did the lights today (24 Sep 11) and did a headlight restoration. The lights would get humidity in them every time that I would get it washed, so I took the headlights back out, re-did the black on the headlights, and sealed them up WAY WAY better this time. Hopefully they will not leak this time...check out the picture after the restoration!! They look so much better!!!
