    Did you end up going 8.4 or 12.1? Not gonna lie, if that price was for the 8.4 you way overpaid, but if for the 12" unit that's not horrible. Gonna make some guys jealous on here but I scored this setup for $385 shipped about a month ago

    @skuppy069 have you made any progress with the buttons on the UAX working? I've got mine just about finished up and that's really my only issue at this point. Also I've noticed my cargo cam no longer works so assuming it's on a different input now or I need something else from a 5th gen to recognize it. [​IMG]

    That looks really good bud .
    Roman and I did a lot of can bus logging and with his programming skills he was able to make me a program file to get the buttons mapped and working correctly via the interface I had already with the BSM that he also setup/developed .
    Roman has been a huge help and I can’t thank him enough for all his time he has put into this and his help .
    The cargo cam Input worked for me with a m2mods rca pigtail .
    Is yours a factory installed cargo cam ?

    I see you kept your lower switch panel . That’s pretty clever so you can keep the exhaust brake switch etc .Do all those buttons work ?

    Thanks! I'll try and get up with Roman this week on that. I installed the cargo cam with Jimmy07's help on the parts for the harness. It works fine with the UAV and any other radio except for this one. I don't even get the soft key for it so not sure whats up.
    Haha I figured someone would point out old switch bank. Everything works like it should and I basically hacked up both the 12" bezel and grafted in an old 4th gen bezel lower section. I'll post up some more pics when it's all done and painted. I also molded the sides of the 12" since it doesn't sit flush in the old dash bezel.

    Ya Roman's the best, he's getting a new BCM setup for me (not to mention his awesome TLight harness for my 5th gen Tlights)

    Lucky that I ended up with a different BCM than I was expecting from a wrecker. There is currently a stack of BCMs sitting in my office to try different things though one of them belongs to Jimmy.

    I may be able to get make some headway on the surround view as I made friends with an FCA engineer. If nothing else, I will be able to get more exact reasons for the errors were seeing with the DJ/DT CVPMs and then I can figure out how to spoof the needed messages.
