Beautiful truck...my favorite body style of the 3rd gen. Lookin good...
A bit late with the new rims:
Decided to put my new steering wheel in. I figured out how to put an 04-08 wheel in about the same time I discovered Grant made (used to make) a nice aftermarket one for the 04-08's. Just like the one I bought for my Charger (that is now in my Magnum), I'm reasonably certain I bought the last one in existence lol.
Biggest worry was the airbag, 04+ has a dual stage while the 03 is a single stage. Worked out that the single stage wire with the black connector is the high speed stage on the airbag.
Everything connects like it should, no plug adaptation needed.
I have a custom soft emblem for it, I just don't remember where it is right now lol. Same radio controls on the back and the cruise buttons work perfectly. I was originally gonna wait until I redid the interior but my original one was getting bad. This can be done very easily to any 02-03 with an 04-08 wheel if you're tired of the minivan wheel.
Oh yeah, the new sport rims
Ended up having to order another emblem for the steering wheel
And a beauty shot at the base
So the time has come to redo the interior. New carpet, 4th gen seats, new android head unit with backup camera in tailgate handle, remote lock for tailgate, properly fit and secure the console as well as convert to floor shift. Started today ripping out the old seats and carpet.
She's naked now lol
These are the seats that will be going in
Installed the new handle/camera & lock but haven't wired them in yet. Was losing light and starting to cool off so I was at a good stopping point, especially since it's supposed to rain tomorrow.
Probably pull the passenger head off the old lady's wagon to see how bad the carnage is (dropped seat). I'm optimistic for the weekend into next week finishing this up.
Kinda hard to see, but I accidentally discovered the silver cruise switches from an Aspen (that go quite nicely with the silver accents throughout the interior) so I put those in after I removed the column shifter. Need to find a non-column shift shroud (shouldn't be too hard).
Pulled out the old shift cable and ran the new one for the console shifter.
Gonna lay down some sound deadener and start cutting on the dash to fit the console tomorrow, then I can locate and attach the brackets. Probably run the wiring for the tailgate up as well.
