I had my truck detailed at a local shop and ask the guy that weighed about 165 to 180 lbs. if he would clean the top of the truck also. He was a little hesitant at first but once he climbed on top of the BakFlip F1 it hardly showed any sign of flexing.

Default 12.45 Glovebox light

I have the upper glovebox which has a cutout for a light.
I noticed that the light wiring harness is there, plugged into a blank filler piece.

I ordered a light switch on e-Bay: MOPAR OEM 4565022 Glove Box Lamp for $12.45 delivered.
Snaps right in.
Wiring harness plugged into the blank:

Plugged in and snapped back into place:


Cheapest thing I have done to my truck since I bought it.

My mechanic fabbed up a step up on the drivers side with an underneath brace (Good for 180 anyway). Cost $60 bucks fabbed/installed. My left knee is limited, so it's a bit lower than most (but the trucks lifted and on 33's so it'll be the added long bed farm truck). The 1/2 ton is the off roader. R...

Guys, this is a good feature, please carry on. I've not been able to find an after market product that would allow me to step up spin on the left heel and seat myself in the bench seat of this truck. The right artificial leg needs a heel rest to bend. My two legged mechanic tried it and found it to be sufficient for it's intent as a normal truck person. I don't have this issue on the 2500 diesel, the slightly lower profile and a 74" height works for this one with the bum back. R...

That's an interesting mod, and the price is right that's for sure.

Does it fold up out of the way when not in use, or is that a permanent position?

I ask because what happens if you hit something whilst driving down the road?

Hey everyone my name is Chase. I just bought a 97 Dodge Ram 1500 with the ext cab 5.2 v8 I believe not 100% sure on that but any way I drove it home and it ran fine the only thing is that I don't feel like it had as much power as I expected I'm use to driving a f150 manual 4.2 v6 which had a little power. It just doesn't seem to get up and go like I think a V8 would and I don't know much about these things so it could be totally fine. Any one have any suggestions though? It looks like the plugs and wires are relatively new so I don't know what else it needs. Oh and sorry if this is the wrong thread for this.

I dropped the coin and got a set of HID low beams H11 (5000K--55 watt) from Retro-Shop for my 2013 Outdoorsman.

The install was fairly simple (6th kit I installed over the years), just took my time.
Everything worked the first time. I wanted to get this done before winter sets in.

The HID lights are much brighter than the OEM H11 bulbs. Now I have Hid Fog Lights (3000K--35 watt) and HID Low Beams.
I don't see the need or cost to get the high beam kit.

Now I am ready for winter, but I would like to jump ahead to spring.
