donmeca2020 So today after finally getting the harness soldered and heat shrink wrapped. i go to start installing this headunit. the Pac harness fits to the vehicle harness. im almost 100% sure the radio harness will fit, but as i go to install the antenna extension apparently i need some sort of crap adapter....

So now i need to hunt this specific piece down and try getting it for a reasonable price.....

Actually programming the switches. I set the dial for my pioneer, but the buttons were off. They did different things than they were meant to. I just had to follow the protocol in the booklet. It has something like 10 functions, you assign a button to function numbers 1-10. I set them all on the first try. You may not have to deal with it, but if they're not doing what they're supposed to do, the programming protocol works.

At that point i was very annoyed and didn't trust the shop, he then tells me they would be unable to do the job that day even though prior he said they could have gotten it done. i immediately grabbed my harnesses, and walked out thinking thank god i didn't let them do it. he seemed he was trying to scam me or something. Low and behold i went on Yelp and this particular shop had quite a few bad reviews and i also made a bad review for them as well. So all in all i'm gonna have to wait for a friend of mine to do the soldering job, but i trust this guy 100% and he won't charge me. anyways i'll keep everyone updated as i get this project completed.

I saw the picture and they look pretty cool; especially since they go one automatically when you open the door. They would definitely scare a Zombie away.

Blue Baby Sound Used the Rugged Ridge A pillar and switches tied into an eBay relay/fuse box. Mounted the box under/behind the glove box. Used the grommet there to run the wires outside. Tied the puddle & floor lights into the LED under the glove box.
