    That's what I did, I figured I'd never need one light on and not the other and it's one less extra switch I had to find a spot for

    Not pointless. If you noticed when you unlock the truck the cargo lights turn on and when you turn your truck off the cargo lights stay on. If youre unloading your bed at night you have a some lighting. you can even hit the unlock button again to keep the light on and obviously hit the switch inside as well. For me that would benefit me.

    Thank him for the excuse to upgrade? Sold out at Meso, but still available at some vendors.

    From the screenshot posted, it looks to be low quality. I love the fit and OEM look, but tbh not worth it if the quality sucks. Then again, it's better than not having one.

    between this and the Garmin, I would go the Garmin, route. If you have the powered rearview mirror, you can get an adapter that plugs directly into the Garmin and it's so small, that it sits perfectly. The Garmin has better quality.

    For myself, I'm getting the Street Guardian SG9667DC2K. It's more involved with wiring, it's 2 channel (front and rear) and has parking mode. Not my favorite form factor, but quality and reliability over fit and looks.

    Nothing worthy
    Very good point. For that reason alone I'd agree it isn't pointless, now i have more work to do.. lol
    IF the only point was to turn on from cab and have to turn off again from cab, that would be pointless...

    AFE Rock Basher high clearance muffler. It was in 3 pcs and I did not like the quality of the clamps... leaked and moved around. I had them welded, also cut the tip about 1.5" as it was pointing on the diff. The quality of the rest is top notch. Not very loud which I love, but it does drone on the highway. Pretty bad. Oh well, its just a weekend toy.

    Hated the pregnant Magnaflow angled rolled tip so I cut that off and replaced it with a more stock style Gibson straight cut single. Smaller diameter too.

    Nice touch on the dimmer for that purpose.

    A switch in the cab is for using the truck as a truck not a bed camper. I backup and/or get the truck In position to load something and reach down and turn on the bed lights. Having a switch in the bed is not useful for that, especially if you already have stuff loaded and now it blocks the switch. There’s nothing wrong with having a switch in both places but I would avoid a bed switch unless you only use it for bed camping so to speak.

    Deaden the back wall and floor under the storage bin. That will help a bit with the drone.

    Oh look, another mod....

    I agree. I analyzed the still shot and watched a videos of the camera while driving. I wasn't that impressed with the quality of the cam. My Garmin Mini takes a better video. I think I'm going to stay with my current setup for now.

    Don't bother with a 4WP bumper, they aren't exactly known for quality, in fact quite the opposite.

    C4 makes a low profile bumper like that for all of $100 more if you don't want the bull bar or $200 if you do.

    Also was gonna throw on the CBI push bar with my 30" Rigid light bar, but the damn thing doesn't work with the TRD skid, so the skid will be up for sale as soon as @RCI-Offroad has another sale.

    Does anyone with a Martin roof rack have a Rough Country 40" light bar mounted? The included brackets with my light bar don't work with the rack no matter how I position them.

    I will be working on mounting a 40” light bar to my Martin rack in a week or so. When I figure out how to configure it I’ll give you a shout.
