It is easy believe me. I was worried when I first did it but heck if I can't screw it up then you are good to go. I may haveta look into that shorty antennae, I am getting tired of the piece of crap one Dodge puts on our trucks. Only big ass antennae should be whips for a CB .
Indeed I will post pics. I'm gonna have a leveling kit, headache rack, and a brush guard put on this weekend if the shop can do it. If not, it will be next weekend.

Brush guard should be an easy at home install (unless doing the bumper replacement guards lol). If just doing the brush guard then might wanna see if you can install it yourself, would save ya a little money for future mods. I haven't messed with headache racks but am sure they should be just as easy. Can't wait to see this thing after these mods though.

Yea I checked with the shop today and they said the headache rack installed would be 499 installed!?!?! I said, are you shitting me? lol...The exact same headache rack i found online for 199 w/ free shipping. Its 4 bolts, I feel pretty confident that I can accomplish that task. In my opinion, no headache rack is worth 300 labor, but thats just me. IDK, I gotta figure out. Im shopping online now lol.

Well, I just put my order in with GoRecon...got the 60" fire and ice tailgate bar, 62" big rig running lights that also light up with turn and hazard signals, and turn white when you open the doors, and smoked cab marker lights!!! Will post pics when they are installed...hopefully I can get the wheels plati-dipped and all this stuff installed next weekend. If not, Im gonna be taking a week off REAL soon. Its hard for a truck driver to go to Dallas everyday. I think thats why I drink!!! LOL!!

I hear ya bud. I am a truck driver also (left over the road and started running tri-axle). Definitely not worth that much to be installed. All you really need is hand tools and the instructions and you will be fine.. Or do what I do and set it on the truck and see where things line up and if after an hour ya can't figure it out ya look at the directions and go oh shit it's on backwards. Brush guards are just as easy for install, make sure you can get a good tight pull on the bolts and you are good to go. If not then pick up a impact and righten them down that way. Personally I like using the impact so I know that something isn't going to fall off anytime soon.
