My credo
If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?
Dash and wiring…check
Roll bar/harness bar….check
Dynamat cab….check
Nice clean job. Pad the roll bar so you don't crack your melon on a bump, though.

aren't you afraid someone will kick the ignition box being on the floor there? or you building a strip race unit? and passengers won't be sitting there? What is the engine you are planning? cheers

Nope. If you can’t ride in my truck without kicking my stuff…..get out.
It has a 1998 HO engine.
