Awesome! I've read they are a major upgrade for the OBS and SuperDuty trucks but I've never been able to stomach the price.
Yeah, spending money hurts. :)

But, I look at it like this: While it's one fairly spendy part, it's still less than ONE monthly payment on a newer car. So if it gets me one more month of ownership, I'm coming out ahead. :D (and I expect it to last another 200K miles, which will probably be longer than a month)

Or, as Kurt always tells me, "Buy once, cry once".

I decided the never-used ash tray/change drawer would be a good spot to mount the face of a Ham radio. Removed the handle, and made this little stainless bracket to mount the face to the drawer.



I used both rivets and a nut/bolt, because I couldn't get the head of the rivet gun inside the drawer to use 3 rivets.



Here it is in place. The drawer is still fully functional if I were to want to use it for something also. Also pictured is the fantastic Ram ball mount on the right side of the dash.

A few months ago I made a new transmission crossmember, with skidplates for the trans and transfer case. I finally got around to getting it powdercoated, and today I installed it. It makes me feel better than the bent/rusty stock crossmember, and cheesy excuse for a skid plate. (even if I never touch them...it makes me feel better)
