I haven't felt like doing crap to it over the winter, but over the last week or so it has been nice enough outside to work on so I've been doing some more stuff.
First I ripped some of the plastic panels off:
Then both sections of the carpet(looks like it came out of the junkyard):
Stained carpet before a good pressure wash(forgot to get an after pic, but it really made the carpet look better):
Back in. The cargo carpet looks real light here, but I think it's just how the sun was hitting it. Also notice how the carpet is covering the accelerator up. I didn't notice this until I got everything back together and cranked it. lol)
$20 rearview camera:
The camera's power only comes on when in reverse.
When I had the carpet out I ran:
A power wire under the jute backing all the way to the back and through the tailgate boot for the new rear glass release.
An accessory wire under it to the driver side seat so it now has power and heat.
For the camera I ran the RC wire with an on/off wire to the rear where the on/off wire and power for the camera are connected to the back up lights.
The camera wire is ran up through the floor via a plastic cap that was there from the factory.
I also put Gorilla Tape where all of the metal on metal contacts were. I haven't driven it much, but it seems to have made a difference.
Everything is taped down with Gorilla Tape as well.
Looks sick. I'm jealous of the v8 swap. what MPG are you looking at and how's it doing as far as functionality? any check engine lights or missing features or does everything work? did you use your PCM or grab one from the donor truck?
I was originally getting around 20mpg, but now I'm running a better tune that gives me more power and I've been driving it harder so I've been getting 17mpg now as compared to 21mpg with the V6. Initially I had some check engine lights, but those were easily resolved. You can use your stock PCM, but I upgraded to the newer style. You have to remove a bunch of different codes and turn off VAT's. It's a pretty straight forward swap, but would have been much easier if I went with a different cam or kept the stock one. I've had a HUGE problem with the knock sensor though.
justin how does the mic for the bluetooth works where u mounted at?
