It should - you gave me the link. I want to thank your for that. Now you can tell everybody you had a role in putting Stinky together.

I looked at a lot of options, and there were plenty of covers linked to me. I had that lonely wood trim on the door, and this just popped at my wife and I (yes, I give her a say in Stinky - gotta allow her to love the truck to tolerate me always working on the truck). My primary reason for the choice was the area where I'll be putting my greasy mitts will not wear like the last wheel did. I'm not a 10 and 2 kinda guy - I'm a left-hand-at-twelve driver. My right hand is available to hold my sweetie's hand (she was watching me type this).

I had my dash hydro dipped by a company in I believe NEB. They did it for $150 . Which I thought after shopping around was a good deal. Nice job and quick turn around this company is in MD! !

Rich, did you get the wheel from Dallas Custom Steering Wheel? If so, which one did you order? Their site is incomprehensible, so I'd probably call before ordering anything.

I have that same under dash gauge pod. I ordered it from riffraff. They were able to toss in some matching spray paint. My dash is grey though, but if you want matching paint you may want to contact them.

I am curious as to why you have the tablet instead of a pillar gauges? Wouldn't the tablet set up like that just scream "break my window and steal me"?

Wheel looks nice. And how do you get under that air bag cover and air bag? I need to work on my shift lever under there.

The tablet monitors (with alarms) and logs 10 PIDs (or more if I choose) simultaneously - gauges have to be watched to convey information. The tablet is clipped in, it comes right out and can be put away.

The column cover needs to be removed to do that. Unscrew the steering wheel tilt lock (it comes right out) and remove the 3 column cover screws. When the bottom is out, put your key in the ignition and turn it to RUN, then take a small Philips screwdriver and press the ball-bearing looking thing on the bottom of the key cylinder. This releases the key cylinder and you can pull out the whole cylinder. Once the top cover is off, you can put the cylinder back in and remove the key - so you don't have to leave the truck in RUN while you're working.
