    I got a backup camera at best buy and they installed it, I also got a new head unit stereo as my truck didnt have bluetooth or anything. If your stereo has a screen, you can just buy a backup camera and have it installed there. pretty cheap. If it doesnt have a screen, would also require a new head unit I would think. TOTALLY worth it IMO.

    headlights are in. once I got home I could tell they were just lighting the ground. adjusting them was super simple, literally just turn a phillips head screw and they go up. Need to drive around and keep raising it until people start flashing me and then drop it down a little and will be where it needs to be.

    I have a Ram 1500 and it has a large stereo screen. Thanks, I will give the backup camera a look.

    Looking good!

    There must be an easier way to adjust the headlights to the right level I would hope.

    literally just a phillips head screw you turn and you can see the lights moving. super simple.

    I was mostly referring to people having to flash you. :D

    Shell wont be here until December so this is mostly on hold for now. I am not going to work on building the interior until it is covered from the elements.

    I did try out my new inverter and strapped a TV in the slide window in the back of my truck. My son and I watched the cardinals vs panthers from atop of mingus mountain at the end of a long day of adventuring up and down the verde river and some springs.
