    It sure is. We use this stuff religiously at work. It’s a must with installs of dissimilar metals on boats. I use the syringe with the brush applicator to minimize waste and a sticky mess.

    Great looking truck! Of all the things you've done to it, I must get a "Fire Missiles" button. That is awesome!

    I'll poke the bear.

    You can't defend a product and then state that you modified, or didn't use, the core component of it. The rest of us poor saps who had to use the product in it's entirety are allowed to complain about how cheap it is and how much it rattles.

    Poke away. I haven't had that problem with the brackets. I think my statement still stands as the "core component" that is mentioned is... wait for it... the brackets.

    I think you have RWL/OWL confused with white walls. Totally different thing.

    Sorry, @elricfate , I just re-read your post. I had it in my head that you somehow reused the part that held the radio in place. NOT just the little clips that hold the faceplate in.

    My issue with the Metra is that the plastic mounts for the head unit don't hold it steady AND the fact that the clips are craps. So my dash sounds like I'm running dual 12" subs on full blast even when riding down a relatively smooth road. (and I have no subs)

    Added a tow controller. Decided to go here instead of the coin holder tray spot like most others since I throw my phone in that slot sometimes

    Agreed, but my backseat is full of carseats. I can barely fit a duffle bag back there...

    ...though I can't exactly access the space behind the back wall easily. Perhaps a 10" sub will go back there :D

    My first priority though, quiet that dang Metra faceplate and radio from shaking so much. I've already gone as far as putting electrical tape everywhere that you couldn't see it to try to make things rest together. It helped, but not much. SInce you say that yours doesn't rattle, I might look to see if I can order some OEM clips. The Metra ones SUCK.

    Worst case, you can order the brackets on ebay for the OEM radio and see if that helps with your vibration. I think the Metra clips are undersized for their application, which makes them less hearty, which in turn allows the faceplate to move in place. I think if I had reused the OEM brackets it would just be that much stronger and honestly, I wish I had to avoid future issues, but for now they're quiet and solid.

    I also put a radio in that's about half the depth of a normal double DIN (Kenwood DMX7706S). That might be a mitigating circumstance, it's less heavy than others.

    Also, at least you have space for shallow mounts because of your double cab. I am looking at some of the little tiny active box subs to put under a seat, at this point. :D
