    Thanks. Yeah, I'm not sure what happened with the pics, but it won't let me edit them anymore so I'm just not gonna worry about it.

    Well it's been a minute since I updated the thread, but I've been able to get a few things done in the last month. I finally finished the wiring harness for my overhead console, recovered it, and got it installed, along with a compass/temp mirror. The DIC isn't working right but I think I may have just got a wrong wire behind the radio. I also put in a 12v to 5v micro usb charger wired to ignition power near my windshield phone mount.

    When I put my mirrors on, I zip tied the excess wire up but it was still a bit of a mess. So I cleaned up some of that mess and put in a grounding bar.

    My passenger side headlight has had a tendency to get condensation after the rain or being washed. It usually dried out pretty quick, but one day it didn't. The housing got corroded and I hardly got any light from that side. I finally got around to replacing them and the yellowed corner lights. I also sanded my parking lights and put some clear coat on everything. Since the new headlights have a glare cap in them, I decided to try the 9011/9012 bulbs. It's made a big difference. Now I just need to do the heavy duty harness/4 high mod.

    I never could get my cb to work right with the window mount antenna already on my truck, so I picked up some Firesticks. We'll see if that does the trick once I get the connector soldered onto the coax.

    Forgot to update on my CB. It still wasn't working so I got some help from the guy I bought it from. After checking pretty much everything else, we figured out the internal speaker doesn't work. He gave me an old external speaker to use and now everything works fine.
