    I followed the instructions for the dimming feature but it didn't work, I realized I didn't care enough about it to pull the wiring and try again.

    @bagleboy would know. He talked me through it before. I can try to dig up the thread if he doesn't chime in before.

    I tried before, but didn't source both wires. I'll be giving it another shot tomorrow with @EDDO's idea.

    Eddo already covered it a post or two later but I just followed the flyeze instructions for locating the wires behind the hvac controls on my '14. Solid geen is illumination plus, green/white is variable ground. The only tricky thing I changed was the value of the resistors that sets the max illumination and swapping out some leds to match colors. Every switch maker seems to use a different value from 1k to 3k and for me 10k or more is a better match. Some depends on the amount of laser etching or whether there's an actual window to pass the light.

    Probably not until winter to do 35s. I have a couple small things I want to do to the truck before Summer and then I'm not touching the truck again until Winter when I get some of the big projects done.

    I had my 45 in hand when I finally opened the tent. Bear was long gone. Grabbed food and split. My yelling get out of here worked I guess.

    You take a chance anytime you go bigger on tires.
    Lessen the chance if you regear and add solid spacer.

    Front and rear will be the weak point with 35+ tires. Its definitely do able but you will have to be easy on the gas
