Great thanks! I actually don't have the brake controller sorry forgot to mention that. I have the pocket there. 

 

So the entire aluminum/plastic piece comes off first, then you can remove the black piece?

 

When you take the plastic off the whole thing comes off. Here's a video of how they should do it.

Wrapped interior brushed aluminum trim with kryptek typhoon matte. Not 3M brand and it was an "upgraded" exterior version so it was tacky as hell. The lady I spoke with on the phone said it was about the same level of difficulty to install and wouldn't leave residue but even just during the initial application when I pulled up there were multiple times I saw residue. Made certain parts of the wrap look slightly different (areas I pulled up vs didn't) and complex corners were hell.

All in all though I like the look and I've got more than enough to wrap another truck interior or other stuff. Expensive as hell but I really love kryptek and the truck has a theme now (matching seat covers).

 

Additionally I installed the Go Rhino RB20 steps. Pretty straightforward install although I had to punch out a hole for bolts and file as it wasn't punched out during assembly. Went in fine, instructions were slightly off from parts they gave me (maybe difference in years) but was pretty straight forward, no major complaints during install.

I do wish that the mounts were thinner as when you walk up to the truck you can clearly see the 4 points it mounts to the truck. Also wouldn't mind if it was slightly tighter to the body, most of the videos made it seem like it was, but for whatever reason it isn't in my install. Lastly the front is slightly wider than the rear. Actually sort of lines up with the additional 1.5" track width in the front. Steps are pretty grippy overall, interested to see how much snow they collect during the winter.

 

Next up is installing my amber lamin-x fog light film and hopefully by end of month my diamondback cover. Also ordered a husky rear storage bin as I've been carrying everything (straps, jumper cables, bungee cords, first aid, etc.) around in an old backpack.

 

I really went hog wild the past few weeks and need to calm it down a bit. Still a bit left I want to do (Upgraded stereo, line-x front and rear bumper, line-x chrome mirror caps, new grille, custom badges front and rear, front and rear off road lights) and some things I'm up in the air about (possibly line-xed fender flares, blackout the tan headliner trim and black US flag headliner, grille guard). For now though she will probably sit for the rest of the year. Need to let the bank fill back up to a more comfortable level and I've got my eyes on a scar 17s so we will see what happens there.

Nice truck! The toys that go bang hit the bank harder that the trucks do sometimes. Not sure which addiction is worse.

How hard is the illuminated door handle install? Specifically the wiring? Do you have a write-up?

Phil certainly has a nice looking truck.  I wonder if he has ever thought about adding tow mirrors???
