    What is this thing behind my glovebox ?
    airbag ? hvac ?
    can I run cables across it ?

    Can I mount stuff my A/V stuff to it ?
    I'm trying to find a good place to mount my hdradio, I had to put it in my glovebox for now.

    HD300 hd radio thing is pretty big. A book shaped the size of your hand with fingers together.
    pic and details

    is it safe to mount/run cables or no way?

    I think I could mount under the seat but wire length is an issue.
    yellow and black are no problem, I can make extensions but.
    The antenna wire is limited length ( is there an extension cable ? )
    The cd changer wire is limited length ( is there an extension for that ? ) I couldn't find any at my local frys which has a lot of cabling.

    not sure what to call the cable that plugs into the changer input...

    I thought about that, but realized my truck didn't have enough jigawatts.
    So after I counted that out, I thought maybe it was just a widget.

    Not sure about installing around the fan box/filter box.... I would think quite a bit of head would get generated around that box... probably not good for it.

    I find that head is only generated around a box if you play with it first. Otherwise, you just get condensate on the tip.
