, lets see, your gunna need the lever first off. I got lucky with mine, the guy that owns the shop just so happen to have an older one that doesnt have the click, and its its super strong and doesnt move on its own, so with that being said i get whatever RPM i want and it stays for as long as i want, the ones that click persay because they have 7 different gears will only give you 7 different idles. idk if that makes since to ya or not. so once you have the lever everything else is easy, just get enough cable, cable sleeve and run it from the lever to the throttle body, mine had two holes, one for the pedal, one for cruise control, i drilled another hole for the hand throttle to where it would touch or tangle with the other two. the reason you need the hole is so you can put in a stopper, the stopper is what allows the cable to be pulled instead of the entire assembly, ill try and take some pics for you.
Thank you and yes it makes sence on the 7 speed.

just another look at the interior with the door on n what not

here is the inside of the cb speaker, its literally a perfect fit, you can tell what all i cut out, which is quite a bit, and believe it or not, nothing holds it in there, and it has never fallen out on a trail or anywhere. only comes out if i pull it out.

i bought 5 cans total, one tan, two od green and two brown. i personally dont think i did enough coats, the green and brown i did 2 coats, and the tan i did 3 because it was over black and took more, i should have done three or four IMO but too late now, i ended up using over 1 can of green and brown, but didnt use much of the second can, more so used the second can for touch up. and as far as the tan goes i usedabout 3/4 of a can

Like this?




If I may make a suggestion. Do the trim around the radio and the piece around the gauges with Duplicolor Bumper coating.
It looks great and holds up well if things are prepped properly.
I used it one those pieces as well as my center console but I did that after these photos.

I have the warn wireless remote for their fogs and at first they were hard to turn on and u had to push button a lot and pick up remote and get point it to the receiver but after about 2 weeks the remote just started working right same spot on dash where I Velcroed it like it now saves time with no wiring a switch. I would get them if the remote doesn't work just wire a switch. Buy u should have only some problems with it that's my experience

Would it be the painted fire extinguisher and the canteen in military pouch. Goes well with the camo look.

X2. At first it worked half the time but in the ashtray it works every time. Like I might have to press the button twice very once in a great while but I love them!
