And that's not the seller I bought it from lol Notice how he actually desn't have any pics of the product, just the one of my truck, the others are just examples... someone's gonna get duped! I sent a PM to Cajun and BlueJet just to give them a heads up. In the bigger picture I'm actually flattered my truck is on eBay, but damn at least be decent enough to ask for a pic, I would have sent you one with a closed hood and the headlights matched

If you saw a pic of your truck on a website selling Hella lights you wouldn't think "Oh shit thats me!!" for a second? lol The internet is a very un-policed place, all I can do is ask that he takes down the pic of my truck ya know...

In the mean time I'll use this opportunity to talk about a Mod I'm working on
Ha! And here you guys were thinking I was just sitting on my ass doing nothing while GotBrains, FastnUgly and Double0Ram were having all the fun lol

First off, I finally got my damn rear StopTech rotors installed. I've had the front ones on forever but the rears were never shipped to me, so they finally came in a few days a go and now they're all mounted up.

That's right I let the truck sit on a 2.5 ton jack instead of using jack stands, yell at me later for it lol
Now, onto something no one saw coming unless you're on FB. I Painted my console!! So surprise mod!!

The skinny guy in the Fox shirt, ya that's me. But check out that reflection in the paint!! Primed, painted with 3 coats DWB paint then a coat of gloss, wet sanded then another coat
Other Pieces

Shifter console^^

And now for something totally different, I painted the shifter/cup holder bezel too Notice there's NO texture on it, the power of sand paper is awesome

I kept the chrome ring of death and decided against painting it for the greater good of "It looks purty"
The center pieces put together

The chrome ring just sets everything apart really nicely. I could do it in black but I'm a sucker for the shiny stuff like a redneck to a bass boat with the glitter finish

Also a new addition to the truck in the console waiting on a wiring harness

7" touchscreen from Pioneer. Thought long and hard about a Kenwood set-up but got a hell of a deal on this one. Only problem is, is that because of this damn thing I have to "trim" parts of the inside dash to make it fit.
*Warning Hack Job*

TBH I know it looks like crap, but you'll never see it so I don't care lol That and my selection of small tools is damn near nothing. So I used a dremel with a sander bit and edged by way across the thing. Once I realized exactly what I had to do, and a lot more of the tan plastic on top had to go, I got a tiny drill bit and made "test holes", and lots of them lol I (kind of) followed a line I made with a sharpie and poked holes in the plastic followed by a pair of pliers and twisted all of it out. Round 400 of dremel sanding and the radio fit like a tight virgin glove. Then I ran into another problem. The dash had a NuvaRing to small for the new Double Din Head Unit. So out came the ViseGrips!! And after about 15 minutes of bending and twisting I was left with a bracket that now looks like this.


But nooo my story isn't over just yet. Ya see, none of this is installed completely yet. Because when I ordered my Radio my dumb ass forgot the stupid required aftermarket wiring harness. So after more research on Crutchfield my wiring harness will be here tomorrow afternoon via (it was cheaper) Amazon. So with a little bit of luck, some 4 letter words, and a pit stop to Radio Shack to pick up some connectors I'll have my radio all hooked up and the 2 Tone console back in place

nice, CLEAN work man. like you said, its all hidden so nobody cares what it looks like. I'm pondering a double din, but there is no aftermarket install kit my ram so its a lot of what you did to make it happen, plus cutting my outer dash trim, which wouldn't turn out as clean looking as yours.

and I would be livid if my truck ended up someplace I didn't put it.

ill admit tho I have been sitting on my mods recently, I've got a huge one coming up and it's been a lot of tedious work.

great work once again man!

Thanks Jaron, I know I'm not pleased with my truck being up on eBay really. But the internet is out of my hands you know Sent the emails and reported him to eBay so hopefully something will be done about it on their end. I always wonder when you see pictures of trucks on web sites if anyone was asked about it or if they just pulled an image off Google like cheap bastards lol

I know the Second and 3rd Gen's don't have a Double Din kit. I was going to put my stock radio in my old 3rd Gen for my dad but after I sized it up I saw it was going to be a lot of Fab work I really didn't want to be a part of. You're better of getting one of those flip up monitors, I had a cheap one from Dual a while back but then it got stolen from my truck out in San Diego lol

So whats stacking up in the corner of your garage buuuuddy

I looked at flip out Alpine so I might go that route as well.

an that's funny cause it literally IS sitting in the corner of my garage. almost all of it. I still need to order some pieces, a single led bulb for it, some bolts and some heavy gauge wiring. so its a collection right now but this coming paycheck will take care of.the final orders. its pretty sweet, and the best part is I can only add on to it should I desire.
