How do yo like the lomax tri-fold? Is it easy to completely remove for full bed access?

. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a chassis ground in the cab so I had to sacrifice one of the pass thru wires for ground connected to chassis ground in the engine compartment.
I was going to order a 3rd brake light camera kit from camera source (https://camera-source.com/2017-f250-...a-display.html) for $179. I was cleaning out my box of hardware and came across a backup camera I purchased years ago and decided to re-purpose it along with an old magnetic cell phone holder.

My make shift CHMSL camera:


Old magnetic cell phone holder was perfect for mounting the camera.


I cut off the license plate brackets and bent the remaining bracket to use with the magnet. I'll running the wires in the headliner and in the kick panel after testing is complete.


Connected to my Edge Insight CTS2.

If it works out nicely, I may go on Amazon and purchase a new backup cam with the butterfly ears on it for a smaller footprint and no lines for $20.

You have pass thru wires in the cab? From the up fitter switches? I can't find any. I did find the ones in the engine compartment. Sure would like to find them in the passenger compartment someplace.

if I'm not mistaken he used a pass thru wire to get ground wire from in cab into the engine bay for a ground.

I just loosened off a seat bolt in back sanded down to bare metal put a ring terminal on then screwed back on for an in cab ground.

The 4 blunt-cut pass-thru wires terminate at the passenger kick panel and under hood near the passenger side firewall grommet

Installed Fox 2.0 Resi's over the weekend, ordered new radar detector, Blendmount, Mirrortap, 21" antenna and level kit goes on tomorrow. Just gotta decide on tire/wheel package and I'll be more/less done with the truck,,,for now.

Oh, cell phone mount. Seems like designers don't think about cell phones.. I had installed a magnetic phone mount in a Porsche that I love and will order another for the Black Limo (what we're calling it now). ExactFit Magnetic Phone Mount-Rennline, Inc.

Very Easy to remove. Fold it up, unlatch the last section and pick it up and off. Its not too heavy for one person to remove and I love the low profile and clean lines.

Well, 2.5" Readylift is on. Alignment got f'd up. Drove home after the shop said it was done near closing time with the wheel at 3 o'clock. Grrrrrrrrrrrr I guess they had issues with the Moog Caster Bushings..

Husky X-act liners front and rear. LED bulbs up front (4 main, 2 fog ($112 total for all six)), Line-X, Andersen Utilmate hitch, tinted windows with tint strip across the front.
Ordered front and rear wheel liners when I ordered the truck, factory mis-built the truck and forgot the rear liners so they are now in.
