Hello,

Hopefully, a couple of answers could be provided about your mod.

Does the cable from Fry's(in the reroute document) have a small plug similiar in size to the Apple made connectors? I use a Speck Candy Shell case and would like the connector to plug in while using the case.

Does the cable provide all functionality(controls, charging etc.) when used with an iphone 4? I use the iphone 4 with my trucks RER radio as an ipod.

Thanks,

Mike

on my truck i wanted a couple switches on my dash, there was an unused pocket to the left of the my temperature controls, so i fabricated a plastic box with 2 slots for the switches & i found a power source, it works well.

Then i noticed that when the truck was parked & the alarm was set, the alarms flashing light could not be seen at night. I wanted a flashing light that could easily be seen by those people passing by with itchy fingers. Where my 115 v AC plug in was located, i installed a 12 v DC blue LED. It flashes rapidly & lights up the whole cab. Now everyone knows that an alarm is set.

If you look below the temperature controls there is a plastic insert the reads RAM, that insert is there for other features that are offered by RAM, features that i didn't get, it would make a good place to fabricate an iPod connection.
If you notice above the temperature controls, there is an insert panel there also, on mine only the center 5 spots are used, there is 2 unused spots at each end. I believe if you were to take out the lower insert, you could buy an insert similar to the upper insert panel & use it below for other switches & fabrications

I read on some forum that someone mounted an iPod connector to the lower dash, they didn't have a center floor console, if there is an ash tray mounted in the dash, a connector could be easily mounted near it

Good luck with your own fabrication
How did you install the CB? I would like to install a VHF in a similar fashion.

Great write up! I know this is an old one but want to bring it back to see if anyone else has done this any differently... I don't have the floor console so my optimal location may be different

Just for the people that have not yet done any of these type mods
as said the easy way is to remove the glove boxes, but, there is another way & you can learn about your vehicle too
