    Not a huge camper fan, but that one looks extremely nice. Fits well with this truck.

    The dealership installed chrome lettering, I hate chrome like a lot of other people, so I painted them black.

    Cheers, I think so too. This truck is so beige, the black on the cap helps break up the lines!

    Finished the switch install in the coin/key holder slot today for my 3 sets of KCs. Beam and Spot are interconnected with the high beam switch. Roll bar are hot wired to use regardless of key switch etc. I think it came out perfectly.

    Looks good. Do you have the switch and plate links?

    Switches are readily available on Amazon as example: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B013XXPT3I/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. They will give links to other styles.


    The "plate" is all custom. I took out the dash panel and removed the screw-on coin holder, which was nice as it gave me the place to mark and attach a switch plate to. You could buy one and cut it down, but I cut out a sheet metal backer for the switches, painted it black and screwed it in the place for coin holder (from behind), then mounted the switches to it. I did need to "square off" the dash panel hole slightly (about 1/32 inch) to fit all three across as it was not a perfect rectangle with rolled corners.

    Overall took about 90 minutes to fabricate and make it all clean.

    If you have a panel removal tool ,the dash plate pops off fairly easily with 2 clips on top, 3 on sides and bottom, I found the top right of my plate had the most play to get it started. Be sure to test it all before punching it back in!

    de-badged, tint front windows, led interior lights, door sill protectors, led b/up lights, 5" factory step rails, yellow turn signal bulbs, added 4 D ring tie downs. Took off the black vinyl stripes between the doors. Changed the grill - from Custom Car Grills, Finally got a tonneau cover put on. 31" light bar ( white & amber ), tailgate light bar, sunvisor covers ( to hide warning labels ), new bedside decals - still too cold to put them on tho. Flag decals to go on too, again too cold still. Got a 2 switch, switch plate to replace that useless cubby hole to the left of the steering wheel.. still to be installed ( hopefully this weekend ). Upgraded the tires to G/Y Duratracs... loving them, no plowing the driveway !!

    I don't think the Mic-Tuning switches fit in the Shapeways panel without modification - I could be wrong, but I believe that's what @forty2 told me. Since I am in Canada & returning items is a pia I had him order mine( to make sure they were correct ).

    But the website I gave you ch4x4 will work - those were the switches I chose from.

    What paint code is that RED - the Barcelona red (up here in Canada ) looks more burgundy then your red... I like yours, not what we can get here...
    wondering if there is different red paint codes for Canada vs USA.
    Thanks
