I hardwired my Radar Detector to the overhead lights and ran the wire to the front of the overhead console and have the detector suctioned to the windshield to the left of the console and above the rearview.
When i open the door the detector comes on, it works pretty slick
Normal wear and tear. 110,000 miles on it. There wasn't much play even. Everything else under it looks normal for a truck this old and in this climate we live in (you're in Michigan right? Similar weather.)
It does look worse in the pic than it actually was.
