    Winch, front hitch, step bars, bed extender, bed step, gull-wing toolbox, tailgate lock, security system, cb radio, etc.
    I also installed the Cobra 75WXST in mine, with the small metal box for the cords mounted under the dash (positive directly to battery, negative grounded under dash). The radio is fitted onto the dash using the included mic holder screwed into the silver trim between the radio & instrument cluster (two small holes, but the mic holder will remain if the truck is sold). A strong wire tie secures the radio's cord under the dash (so I won't yank it out). Everything looks great in the truck.

    The antenna is a Wilson 2000 Trucker, mounted in the center of my metal gull-wing toolbox (excellent groundplane) in the truck's bed. Used RG8X coax (better shielding) to reduce the chance of picking up noise from the vehicle.

    I wish. I seem to have no luck taking photos of my truck (and it's pretty, darn it). The lighter areas of the vehicle come out horrible overexposed, while the darker areas are often completely underexposed (can't see anything). Maybe it's the camera I'm using. I'm going to try my camcorder next. If I can get a video, the camcorder also has a feature for capturing stills. Perhaps I can get some pics from that. We'll see, but don't anyone hold their breath waiting. :D
