    I ordered LEDs for the interior of the cab.

    Installed the double din head unit, backup camera and Uniden 520XL CB Radio.
    Just have to tune the radio and install my amp for the 12" subwoofer



    How far it sticks out from above:

    Subbed. Cool build so far. How much of a difference did you notice with all the sound deadener? A lot of the audio guys say the only way to block sound is using MLV in addition to the deadener. What are your thoughts?

    I really think so - I made a quick little video back when I installed the sound deadener and it's an (excessive) example of the metal rattle that's cut down by the material. I'm no audio guy so I've never looked into using MLV in addition to deadener.

    This is the short little video I was talking about

    The sub woofer (the amp mounted on the window side):



    Vacuumed the seats and did a quick wipe down of the interior:

    I also changed out the instrument panel lights to white LEDs
    I used the "194 LED Bulb - 5 SMD LED Tower - Miniature Wedge Base Natural White" for behind the dash and the "NEOx LED Bulb - High Power Instrument Panel LED 4mm NEO4-xHP Natural White" bulbs for behind the AC controls

    I went from this:


    To this --> it looks more white in person and better at night. I just didn't like the orange

    My next project is to wire (future) Rigid backup/rear lights to just left of the steering wheel as well... that'll leave more empty spots in the plastic piece below the CB radio. I'll either get a new trim piece, or see it OTRATTW switches can be snugged into those already cut spots.

    The BLUE Circle = CB Radio
    The RED Circle = Backup/Rear Lights
