    You and I should drink beer together. Very similar trucks.

    Still have 18's on mine, though and also still need to get around to setting up an oil catch can.

    I would be interested to see a pic of what you did with MOLLE on the front seats. I have been considering something like that to mount an IFAK, couple of handheld radios, and other assorted accoutrement.

    Likewise on you dual band mount. I drilled my steel rear bumper to mount mine. It functions well, but has some plusses and minuses

    @avslash for sure! Beers or whiskey.

    When I was in the market for molle seat panels, the only thing available were soft backs. Now, there's aluminum rigid panels that hang off the headrest. I may switch to them, who knows.

    The antenna mount I made hangs off the passenger side of the hood. The radio sits in the top glove box. Works pretty well.
