Might need to include photos for each step. Sounds like one complex procedure :p

Stupid 3 photo attachment limit... I guess I could do multiple posts. But then again if I show every step then it may detract from the "marveling" one might do at the completion. Best to leave it I think.

I didn't know you could buy those... I wish I would have known that... t took me forever to finally find a LC that already had one installed.

It would be cool if you could install an iPod adapter to the bottom of it and then run the iPod cable adapter under the console. It would look very OEM.

Mmmm when I rip out AHC I wonder if I can just pull my controls and get one of those or would wires need terminating to keep from throwing codes....if I pull fuses and everything else out completely?

Grasshopper - this is phase one. :wrench:

Universal Dock Connector in pocket is imminent. I will be using the Pioneer (have AVic in dash) cable so I can swap between 160GB iPod and iPhone running Pandora.

I've seen that 1001 times :)

Slee modded both top and bottom. I will be doing something similar. I mean lets be honest - that's not a big stretch to have thought of it. Wait til you guys see my iPad mount... then jealousy will set in - no doubt.

Loud do you think the iPod is going to attract attention to your truck? haha

The connector might not like being in there with the ipod moving back and forth on it as you turn/bounce on trails....that is why they modded the top, to provide a snug fit.
...and every time they change the physical dimensions of the iPod/Nano you are SOL.
