    i did this. I used a step up bit and it worked good. No damage. Just go slow or it will bind up.

    Nice bit of work! I am going to be doing my cab bushings, and am debating inverting them or adding 1/2" uhmw spacers. I bought a length of 2.25" and 1.75" uhmw rod to make 1/2" spacers. In your opinion, which do you think is gonna be the better way to go?

    ,15 Access Cab. The Utility Package so no jump seats. The dog kept trying to stand on the cubby hatches so I built this shelf from 1/2 ply, some really old Doug Fir legs and fitted blocks that set down in the recesses atop the hatches, nothing moves, side to side or front to back.[​IMG] [​IMG] Tried it out for a few weeks with carpet scraps taped on. Got some gray indoor outdoor carpet and did a better staple job. The lovely wife suggested making it in two parts instead of wresting a 4 foot piece of plywood in and out between the seats so now each side lifts out separately.

    I only just noticed these base models are only badged on the tailgate. I think some running boards are on the list for the next thing I add. The Weathertech mats are one the way and I'm still trying to figure out what seatcovers to get.

    Very Nice, I did almost the exact same thing, (Great Minds think alike!!) mine is an "09" & had the consul & the jump seats works great. I really can't understand the "Jump seats"

    Insurance costs more for 2 seat vs 4 seat cars. Many 2 seat cars are sport cars. Thus all 2 seat cars are penalized. Don’t know if this apples to trucks.

    Busy morning... Cut my exhaust pipe over the axle this morning, met up w/ @boogie3478 (thanx) to pick up new grill & shoot the taco shit a bit then to home depot to pick up tile flooring for bathroom & kitchen & filled up gas can for mower. Now that I'm home it's time to mow & get painting finished to start flooring later this week.

    While looking over my truck I noticed my drive side axel boot was torn.
    So new axel it is!
    Also changed my front dif oil at the same time.







    Then I remembered my brakes need some love and took a look.

    I'm looking for how to check if your cruise control connector is energized before purchasing all of the parts. I read it here somewhere, someone used a paperclip to get the 'cruise' to light up on the dash. Any help appreciated!:thumbsup:

    Depending on your state and insurance, In MN we get 2 replacement windshields a year free. I brought my Subaru in for a detail once and they filled my chips without me asking about them and sent the bill to state farm. :thumbsup:
