I have that wired into one of the fuses to turn on with the key. I can post more pictures if anyone wants.
I've taken off the lower side panels on each side of the console. Does that top piece just pop off from there, or is there more to remove first?

Thanks for the guidance!

I love your ideas for a bed divider so I'm putting one together. What did you use to cut out your holes? What kind of hinge did you use for the extender? It almost looks like a cabinet hinge when I zoom in on the picture but I can't tell for sure. Thanks for sharing your ideas

I would suggest using a hole saw to make your holes.

What is the purpose of the piece that extends to the back of the bed? Do the holes have a purpose as well or just to lighten it up?

I don't want to answer for Maximus but I'm hoping to use the holes for an easy way to slide my fishing rods in and out. I used a pressure treated 2x12 so it is on the heavy side so the holes should help with the weight as well. My thought is that the piece that extends to the back of the bed will help keep my tackle box from sliding side to side.

A lot of excellent ideas! Thanks to all who shared. Will incorporate some into our new Eco Scab & try to come up with a few to share as well.

@mbullock; I'm late for the party I know , but a question , your sign off says you did a
" power heated side mirror upgrade " . I've got a 2012 XLT Screw with the "standard" side mirrors , I would like to change them to the power towing mirrors ( or maybe the manual ones , whichever works out best ) , my local dealer parts guy says not possible , parts not available . My question for you ; Is the wiring in the truck already there or did you have to pull additional wiring? , Was the mounting a simple bolt on or were changes required ? Many thanks for your time and effort , BTW your truck looks great !
