    AJT blackout kit for the console.

    Also Plastidipped the chrome piece on the bottom of the shift knob and shrink wrapped the chrome shift lever.

    Also used the AJT kit for the climate control knobs and vent rings.

    Installed the Front/Rear Anytime Camera (FRAC) harness. Used the same setup as @Tchase . Also added the AJT Design climate control blackout rings while I had the dash apart. Sorry for the poor quality images. Phone camera/display artifacts. Image on screen is clear.
    Here is mounting location.

    Note full write-up in attachment at end of post.

    Added the full-plate set from Valhalla including the 3-piece engine skid plate, front catalytic converter protection plate (or transmission skid plate) and the rear catalytic converter protection plate (transfer skid plate). All are 1/8" powder coated steel plates installed using the optional pentagon security bolt set. Full write-up is attached. Thanks to @Classy63 for the plates and install support as well as @CmdrD8TA for his write-up of the front and rear cat plates which helped with my install and write-up.

    Don't worry. I installed the missing bumper valance and oil filter access plate bolts after the picture was taken.


    Edited 7/28/2021: Added information about the bumper valance bolts and washers in write-up. New write-up attached.

    With the 1/2" bolts I thought they might be too short if I added a washer. I am thinking that the same 3/4" bolts as for the oil filter cover plate might be good with washers added.

    @Classy63 Do I have the bumper valance and oil filter cover bolt sizes correct? I was thinking that the bumper valance bolts should be metric, but they seemed to be 5/16"-18

    Right... Silly me, I was thinking the nuts were OEM. Forgot that they are welded to the front engine plate. I will pick up some washers for the plastic tabs on the bumper valance.

    Added V-Ring Tie Downs at the bed rail bolt locations. Added 4 v-rings on each side and 2 at the front of the bed for 10 tie-down locations. Decided to go this route for low cost and does not conflict with the BAK Revolver x2 cover.

    Used tie down anchors with 16mm M6-1.00 stainless bolts and 1/4"x1" stainless fender washers. Due to rust or debris in the mounting holes, had to use a 6mm-1.00 tap to clean out the threads prior to mounting.

    Remounted the bed-side V-rings down to reduce the risk of damage to the cover rails. Left the bed-front V-rings up since the cover roll is there anyway. Thanks for the assist @okcowboy and @biebs96

    @3rdTundra how did you actually mount that chalk bag to the side of the centre console? I don't have a Moelle Panel there. Thanks!
