    PIC HEAVY!

    Took care of a few mods on my own truck after I finished @ChadsPride truck wiring.

    First I painted the faded d-ring that was black with a red bolt, it’s now black and cement with clear coat

    DE35B31E-8E51-4D52-B40F-E660235150D1.jpg 7CC36EA1-BECC-49AC-88CF-7BAE5EE4FC3A.jpg

    Then I painted the MaxTrac logo the same cement color

    Next I upgraded to the new @AJT DESIGN A/C knobs

    E31CFF67-9E75-4A0A-AEBD-71B4ED47315F.jpg 5857D74B-F7A7-4F1F-A4C2-8F2A5A85E220.jpg

    Then I installed a new FireWire, heavy duty spring, and new antenna mounted on the bed stiffener. (I later added a ground cable for the FireWire since the bed stiffener is powder coated)

    And you can see I shaved out the path the wire followed on top of the bed rail so the wire won’t get pinched

    Then I mounted and ran the wire for the PA speaker under the hood

    I finally got around to bolting up the flag mount in the bed and even fashioned up my own flag pole

    And finally I upgraded to the 2015 lower panel with new cigarette lighters and the 4 switch blanks

    I will be ordering this plug to place in the far right blank which goes to the back of my radio for a clean way to plug my phone in for apple car play

    I used a carbide burr which made easy work of it on my drill, then I ran my wire in through the same plug under the seat like yours and fished it to the center console. I’m still on the fence of drilling a few holes in that lower panel to mount my cb radio where yours is vs where mine is side mounted lol
