Even though I might be a little bit afraid that having a Harley emblem on my truck might make it more prone to catastrophic failure...you know, the truck might get confused and think its an actual Harley "40,000 miles on the odometer? I thought I was a Harley...I should be dead by now!" Hahah.

Installed a brake controller. Little brother had an extra one laying around and just gave it to me. I think about $14 for the connector, saved me from having to cut into his controller to wire it to the one that came with the truck.

Anyone attempted to drill a hole for a USB2 mod into that "coin holder" where the 4x4 switch would be?

I've been thinking about it.

My unit is small, so I just set it on the ledge in front of the clock/compass/thermometer. I was using the stick on mount, but it couldn't take the heat this summer...
Here are the links to all the parts I used:

The splitter and coax pieces were from a friend who used to install satellite dishes, and any generic tv type splitter and cables will work.

You can expand your mounting options by getting a longer cable like these:

My dog loves to ride in my truck. She likes to stick her head out the window like every dog out there. I do not like her on my leather seats however so I made a platform using some old 2 x 4's I had lying around. I bolted it down to the floor using the existing mount for the jack.Then I found an old towel and stapled it to the platform. She loves it.

That's not a good spot for a usb port. Just run the wire to your glovebox so its hidden
