    Do the brackets use factory holes and are you still happy with them ? I have a 75yr old father who will be using this.

    Is there someplace specific I should post my installs? Some things are generation specific, but some are not. So far I've just been putting stuff in our build thread, but it would probably be easier for people to find if I put it someplace else.

    Just create separate threads for the install stuff and add it to the general section. We will add the links to the OP in here.

    Rich, I have read on the forum where this has been done but, if memory serves correctly, it is a tough job getting everything smooth and wrinkle-free. Personally, I would probably not attempt it but that is driven by my inexperience in trying to use wrap.

    I suck and I got lazy - I haven't created separate threads for each of these installs, but do have individual posts created and links to each one in the first post of our build. I figured instead of splitting conversations, it might be easier to keep all the info in one place as people ask questions and give better ideas on something.

    I'm open to your suggestions though. If you prefer to have each of these as separate threads, I can work on creating them.

    The below TOC is in post 1 here:

    Table of Contents:

    CB Install - since replaced by HAM
    HAM Mobile Rig Install
    HAM Antenna Roof Install - since broken and done again
    PlastiDip Bumpers and Grille
    Bed LEDs Wired to Cargo Light Switch
    Light Bar Switches in Overhead Console
    Bed Rack and RTT Install
    ARB Awning and Room
    Tomar TRX 50" Lightbar on Roof Install
    RTT Leveling Blocks
    37s and Body Mount Chop
