    Yup, they are complete garbage.. stopped working and started buzzing 2 years into ownership.

    I thinks it's only 09 access cab and up, I can't remember. There used to be 4 door speakers until they transitioned to these stupid hockey pucks.

    Does this work in a 2012+ second gen? Assuming this is a part from an early second Gen.

    Not my finest work with the red but it's up there. Part 4/5 of sound dampening/heat insulation complete. Floors are next. Let's see how the Noico red helps this summer, seems legit so far.

    Also got a chance to see if the third break light wiring is easily accessable from underneath the liner and it is. I'm looking to have someone help me make a specialty third break light. Here's a visual of my thought:

    I don't because I ended up drilling and tapping it to 1/4 20, I don't know what the original thread pitch is but my guess is m6 1.5.

    Do you already have a rearview camera on the tailgate? If not, why not put it there (little kids, dogs, obstructions the tailgate will block line of sight too)?

    I do! It's leaves much to be desired though. I want a secondary anytime cam with a broader view of the bed and surroundings.

    Also thought about putting a cam on the inside rear window but it would unfortunately be hindered by glare.

    `Same thoughts,I just ordered the exact same terminal up-grade today from SDHQ,Im currently running the ultimate battery terminals from knukonceptz,not very ultimate in my mind at all, 5 different allen wrenches needed and they are located on the underside of the terminals so you need to connect cables/wiring first,then mount to battery,dont get me wrong ,I enjoy a challenge & wrenchen on "thee" truck but what a disappointment for $50,I'm happy to spend nearly twice as much for the best terminals.Dang I sure sound like a whinny little bitch,sorry TW peeps I'll shut up now,thank you and goodnight,ha.

    It'd look sick, but if you ever plan on a shell or a softopper you'll lose your view. With my softopper i lost most of my rear view capabilities. I recently installed the Vantop rear view system, and the only thing I dont like is how low the camera mounts (on the license plate frame). Headlights straight into the rear camera wash out the image. Another perk of your set up is if it is the type that is "on" when the truck is parked, it'll keep an eye on the contents of your bed and record if it senses vibration.

    I was getting annoyed that I could never find a great place to pack my shovel when we went camping. I usually just wedged it in between other stuff or just let it bounce around in the bed--but that got super annoying when we were heading out to more remote spots.

    So I installed some Quick Fist clamps to fix the problem. Use stainless T-slot nuts and stainless fasteners to mount them. The brackets that came with the clamps looked to be mild steel, so I hit them with some primer+paint to inhibit corrosion. I really like them so far.

    I used the remaining two stainless T-slot nuts (came in a pack of 4) and fasteners to mount some D-rings at the front of the bed for some additional tie-down points.
