I don't believe I've ever seen this done and I was wondering if anyone had any input on this subject. I'm going to be doing a small overhaul on my interior in the next couple of weeks. Basically fixing a couple of things that need fixed since I put in the manual transfer case.
I'm going to be replacing the rubber floor in my truck with black carpet because when I cut the hole in my floor for the transfer case shifter I thought it would be a good idea to do it while intoxicated at 2AM.
but it turns out it wasn't such a good idea afterall. I cut my rubber floor a bit to far and the boot/bezel doesn't quite cover the entire area I cut.
I'm going to be putting sound deadening material on the entire cab while I have the flooring out for replacement, and I'll also be installing the twin stick floor plate/inner boot plate.
Now this brings me to my actual question. I would really like to eliminate the restaints control module cover while I'm doing this. I think it would clean up the look a little bit if I could have the 'blank' carpet area behind the shifters instead of the cover.....similar to this pic.
the area in my truck looks like this, only it has a cover of course.
I'd like to move it completely and have that area empty, but I seem to vaguely recall reading somewhere that this module could not be mounted anyway but sitting flat. Am I wrong about this? If I relocate the module am I going to be facing more annoying problems like idiot lights flashing? If thats the case I'll just leave it alone.
Anybody know? thanks.
