I name not any particular ethnicities but it seems to have gotten a lot worse in the last 10-15 years in the SF Valley area. Those who live around here will know who I'm talking about.

Prolly shouldn't post this but what the heck.

I know exactly who/what you're talking about. I've been in my current house for 17 plus years and I live across the street from a city park. And I"m on a hill. The amount of cars the come flying up the hill past my house at 60+ is amazing and they're mostly in high end cars. It's crazy.

Recreated the armrest on the center console. Thanks to Kaiserman for tracing a template of his armrest for me to copy. The materials are not exactly right, but it is close enough for me. As for the seatbelts, these are borrowed from the aviation world since this is going to be my daily driver and I will be using it to haul kids around. Those seatbelts have full airbags in them. If anyone is interested, here is a link:

Your armrest turned out sweet. It is hard to tell the difference.
Did you make a base also? If so, what did you make the base out of?
Am I done yet?

Holy Moly, I am done.....

your truck looks awesome! I love your interior!

You could pull a leaf out of the front pack to get it down a little. I did that on mine and it softened the spring SLIGHTLY and lowered the front ever so slightly.
