    I built a platform for the rear for tony today with the scrap wood leftover from the other various projects. Even though he had a pretty good set up before, we were worried about him falling forward, getting his foot stuck in a gap, then getting launched backwards breaking it (while off roading). It's three pieces, and the two back ones are for accessing the under seat storage.

    I'll get right on that ;) you should see this goon trying to get in and out of the truck. He could EASILY get in on his own, but he just doesn't want to. I have to pick up his front paws, then his rear.

    I was thinking the same thing!

    yeah me too, I going crazy over here haha we might as well just all have the same avatar!

    that's sweet, you should check these out:

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01CDL2YAC
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00E4W1644
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00SR96RJE

    p.s theres a thread about it and I will try to find it, but essentially it allows you to keep steering wheel controls but also taps into your OBD thing and displays trans temps and shit onto your head unit

    It was an install option thru crutchfield, but it was almost double the cost of the normal harness. But have some cool added features!

    EDIT: Dang it, now you have me thinking about emailing Crutchfield to see if they will let me exchange the harnesses and spend the extra $75...

    This that and the other thing.
    I don't remember cost. if you buy just the right side controls the LED's wont match. if you're like me, you need it to match. so I replaced both sides lol

    Ribbon - 84204-58010
    RH Control - 8424435030B0
    RH + LH + Ribbon - 8425004010B0 (to get matching LED colors)

    also note that the Crux SWRTY-61S does not work with right side controls you would need the PAC SWI-RC unless you opt the idatalink maestro. but double check to make sure the maestro is compatible with right side controls as I do not know because I have not looked into and then let me know if you find out lol :wink:

    this is where I did my reading on the steering wheel controls
