one more thing, are the cup holders from 99-05 (or whenever then changed the SD body style) all interchangeable? my cup holders suck and i was to get the ones that have the bottom that drop down.
1) The CB you will have to pull the headliner down and find the crossmember and drill into that because otherwise you will drill through the roof to the outside. The problem with this is since yours is an ext cab i think the only way to fully pull the headliner out you have to remove the front seats or remove the rear window so you will have to work with it hanging there. Its do-able just a pain in the arse.
2) Wolo Manual Truck Air Horn Lanyard Valve for On-Board Air Systems
Thats the one i was gonna use before i decided i like the electric solenoid better to save me from running air lines into the cab
3) The cupholder from 99-2000 sucked so most guys swap for the 01-04 style works much better, but good luck finding one because they are getting rarer to find unless you buy from the dealer(big $$$) i have one for sale but im selling as a bulk deal with a bunch of dash pieces.
