    Yes, that panel just pops out. I had to smooth the back of the panel off prior to installing the switches. I just cut off what was back there, but be sure not to cut the pegs that hold the panel in place. After I had the back smoothed off, I just drilled the holes for the switches, ran the wires, and popped it back in.

    If you're wondering how I wired my GPS and radar detector, I did not cut their power cables and connect them to the switches. I mounted 2 cigarette lighter plugs under my dash and wired those to the switches.

    Hope this helps. If you have any more questions about it, just let me know.

    Thanks for the compliment As for aftermarket flares, I have looked at several brands and, to me, the stock ones look the best, at least for my set up. I totally agree with you on the BW's - they are freakin' expensive!!

    The fender flares are stock. I keep them "conditioned" with a product called "Back to Black". Love the stuff. I entertained the idea of getting them painted black, but they have not faded, yet, so I am happy with them

    oh man that grill guard i got is a pos. it came wit it from factory and its got wingnuts near the base that hold it in place, because when i have to open the hood, i have to pull the top out about 6 inches or so. real flimsy and whatnot. although i did hit a deer and didnt do hardly any damage.

    no prob bro, it was kind of a desperate move. my tires were solid bald and my balljoints were bad, so i didnt want a factory uca. someone on here told me bout those arms, i saw them, and needed them. haha

    to me, it seems like it gives the suspension a better range of flexing. those factory balljoints will only move so far, but the uni-ball gives it a full range of motion. haha thats what i think IMO, but other that, i have no clue, they look cool though!

    No problems with the leveling kit and no rubbing at all. Also no need to regear unless you go larger than 35" tires.
