    Vibrant 1141 resonator
    $86 part
    $60 labor

    gets rid of the drone and cuts the volume to about half
    so that it's not annoying
    but also can be somewhat heard to hear what the engine is doing and know when to shift, more control with clutch starting in 1st, hearing whether it's even on or not, etc.

    Right on thank you. I'm still not getting a clear enough view of that area. I need to know where the 3rd break light wiring is running. I also thought access cabs didn't have that white plastic piece? Not that it matters lol.

    I'll just check it out when I throw the sound deadening and insulation on. I'm trying to knock out a few things while I have the liner down :)

    No problem with it shutting down. I'm also using a Maestro with JBL. I haven't been able to get it to consistently recognize the parking brake which is annoying. I wonder if there is a way to ground that sensor wire or something so it will actually let me get into all the settings and watch video.

    I have a DNX696 and it has shut off on me 3 or 4 times since installing it a year or so ago. Its just infrequent enough i forget about it. I went through and checked all my wiring and couldn’t find it. You think and update might fix it?

    I ran the negative through a rocker switch to the parking brake trigger. Works perfectly.

    We do have the white plastic grid stuff. I dropped my head liner to do noico and drill for ditch tracks. It’s all accessible and bolts, screws, or snaps in place. Pretty sure there are more pics in that thread given the topic.

    Yea, it was in a portion of one of the pictures I posted when I did the headliner insulation/sound deadening on my AC.

    I personally can’t stand goat armor but I think it’s a great product for those who want that sort of thing. Also, I wheel my truck hard so bumps and scrapes are all just part of the game.

    They make parking brake bypass dongles you can wire in. I put one in with my Pioneer last summer and never had an issue. It basically just simulates the off/on/off or whatever trigger you need for the parking brake negative or ground.

    Something like this:

    For kenwoods all you need to do is ground the wire. I crimped a small eye on the end of the wire and grounded it to the radio itself.

    That’s weird. The size is right on their website. Sorry about the bad experience.

    I tried to install fog lights today but found out the PO broke the housings and glued them half ass back in. Ordered bumper cover from ebay for 100 bucks. Loving the fact I have cheep'o unpainted trim however.
