Question Overhead Console Installation HELP!

I just purchased a OHC off of ebay for 60 bucks. I need some help with installing it. I was hoping to get some detailed instructions. Any help is better than no help.

That is not enough detail! Just kidding! Thats awesome man. I don't think I could find better directions anywhere. I can't wait to install it. I hate the wiring part too!

I'm kinda nervous about cutting the head liner on my truck. If it can be done, I can do it. Anyways, I will keep my eyes open for updated pics of yours.

I don't think that a dearlership would do it but a place that installs stereos might. Got mine completed today but I do have a bad temp sensor. It is still cool. working on getting a replacement sensor unit.

It's not that bad of an install honestly. I did it about a month ago.

Just follow the how to an look up here.

You might have to keep a little extra headliner that you cut to put in the back of the overhead console to push the headliner down a little bit if you have a gap.

I had to do that but it litteraly took abou 3 mins to do..lol

Over all I love my ohc.. .one of the best and relativly cheaper mods to do.
