    I've got a $20 Amazon gift card and just want to see what you guys think. Looking for a small project or just something handy to have in the cab. I know, I know... I can always do more if I save. In this case, I'm just looking to burn 20 bucks and do something cool to my truck.

    120 v outlet mod in cab. Comes in handy in road trips. I spent about $15. Installed the outlet with the USB ports.

    I like that idea :cool:

    I've looked at these before. How do you attach them to the bottom of the lid? They look very handy.

    Where did you mount yours? Definitely looking to do that mod at some point.

    Already have the cab lights replaced with LED lights. One of the best things to do IMO. Bed cargo lights are in the future as well.

    I bought one of those. Works very well for the money. I personally use the Dash Command App.

    Good stuff. My center console is a mess right now. Have way too much in it and zero way to organize it. This may be just what I need.

    It is pretty great. Keeps all the little stuff at the top under straps.

    The LED lights I'm talking about are just direct replacements for the standard dome lights. Cost me 5 bucks for the light I bought.

    I bought mine at walmart of all places. A buddy of mine threw it in my basket and I went ahead and bought it anyway. Turns out, he was right and I do like it. I have seen the Amazon kits though. Should be just as good, probably better and cheaper.
