    Not to be weird, but do you work for JB Hunt? see the business card on the floor board in your twin stick picture.
    I only ask because I work there and recognized it.

    No, I'm a home builder. That card is one of my contacts to call when I have a problem with appliance deliveries.

    Nice job man turned out super clean. Question is there a easy way to hook those up to your dash dimmer switch?

    There is s way to hook it up to the dimmer. The wiring diagram says to not jump the second ground and I'm assuming you pull power to the switch from the dimmed circuit.

    I pulled all the power off the Aux battery. I didn't want ant of this power coming from the truck's harness.

    Solid fucking work dude. They came out great. Something I always wanted to do but never got around to. Now I am going in a completely different direction but still love seeing someone bring this concept to life.

    I had to look back at this - nice job! Does that fast charge? I imagine it depends on the mat you used but seriously, nice work!

    The charging pad is a fast charging pad, but the "cigarette lighter USB thing" I had on hand, isn't high enough output for fast charging...wasnt really a thought out or planned mod...

    Do you have a thread for this? Are the internals the same for the tailgate latch or did you have to modify? I wanted a stock rear cam/latch for a long time. @Gamaliel
