    Finally got around to doing the map light on with dome light mod. Probably the most practical and beneficial mod I've done to date.

    You can get as many estimate as you want until you find the quote you're satisfy with.

    Have you tried different types of business, metal fab, body shop, dealership, so on?

    2 body shops so far . Dealer would be super expensive I’m sure . No metal fab near me that I know of .

    I can't take credit for the write-up, as someone smarter than me put it together. Follow these steps and you won't have any issues. I chose to remove the dome fuse instead of unhooking the negative cable from the battery and had zero issues. The most difficult step for me was removing the two factory map light wires to switch them in the connector. Took a good 10 minutes but once I figured the first wire out the second was simple. I used an old wire clothes hanger to run the wire above the headliner between the dome and map lights. Worked perfect. I soldered the wire into the map light prong but one could easily use a female connector and crimp it onto the wire and slide it onto the prong. Overall took about 30 minutes, with 10 of that being me fighting with the map light connector :facepalm:

    Map Lights on with Dome light
    Above link is from my comment last year.

    Had to switch the map light bulb polarity as mentioned somewhere on this thread. Don't forget this bulb flip if things don't initially work. For anyone who is going to try this, and wants one of the steps easy-peasy, I have 9 extra 22-18 female connectors for $1.00 each (postage mainly). This size slides on the "bent" blade nicely.

    Ordered some sheepskin seat covers from Costco. They should arrive today. For some reason i've always liked the thick sheepskin seats... super excited to get them in.

    Will take after photos once I install them.

    Came with MGM topper. Added FJammer stereo. LED Bed lights on AOB Flux Capacitor Switch. Added AOB Spy Mode switch for TBD lighting, stay tuned.
    I was tired of not having sunglasses storage in my reg. cab. Found this in a 2000 Sienna a while back.
    IMG_20211203_122812607.jpg
    I thought having it under the visor would be fine (after I replace it) since the visor had a tendency to sag anyway.

    IMG_20211203_122833391.jpg
    It's small and only takes slim sunglasses, though. Anything with plastic frames won't fit. Apparently we all wore thinner frames 20 years ago?

    I have to do this in about 2000 miles. Plus brake fluid change. I'm currently watching on Amazon. If you happen to find a better deal elsewhere, please remember to help on old senior citizen out:)
