damn right... just get a clip for your phone and hang it from your visor


and as far as the pistol out in the open like that, thats just a bad idea... what if you get pulled over?

i like your style and where you're going with the truck. not to be a ***** like some others, but i'm not entirely diggin the decals on the sides... but to each his own. i personally love the anti theft system and am looking forward to further progress with the truck. i'm also looking forward to seeing how your ar-15 mount works out in the jumpseat. kudo's and keep it up dude.

Thanks some of you. Lol. But I do enjoy the criticism to an extent.

Ya, I just havent got around to putting the other sticker on. Its a new design so I was gonna take the other off anyways. The goal is not to be loud, rather to rep company founded by 2 Navy SEALs that I know and have the upmost respect for and who we should all aspire to be like. Some people Idolize sports figures...I idolize the true warroirs.

I dont care about the armrest. Its comfortable and does wonders for long drives. Since when was a stock look the idea? lol

The phone only goes there when im sitting in the car parked. Its the same purpose as a cupholder, I just dont have to lean forward to use it.

Its a Sig 226. I'll only trust my life to Sig and Surefire.

As for the weapon in the "open", sometimes I go to ****ty parts of town and the idea is for it in the open so I can get to it quickly. The ****ty parts being anywhere by the Statosphere on the strip. Youtube that ****, crazy cracked out junkies glalore. Not to mention Vegas was the #1 city for car theft in the last few years.

There is no saftey in denial.

I love the gun down there. I wish it was legal to do that out here. If I drove around like that, it would incite mass panic.

Flashlight mounted at head level equals bad. You'll have a nice gash in your head when you get in a wreck and it goes flying. Why would you mount your gun out in the open like that? Skip the night vision. Check out RAM mounts, they work better than velcro. Other than that, cool stuff!

I am not sure I get the whole mall cop/security guard get up with the truck and setup or even the usefulness of it all (except for the holster) but it doesn't really matter what I or anyone else thinks. Have fun with it. That's all that matters.

No worries guys. I wouldnt notice half the **** on my truck that looks bad or is stupid without you guys.

The green interior lighting is green to match the gauges, also, the green green works well with your eyes night vision, thats what I mean, sorry for not elaborating. I'll black out all the trucks lighting when i have actual night vision googles on. Trust me, this **** is fun.

Thanks again guys.

I could break into my B2200 with a flathead screwdriver. Had to do that on 3 occasions when I locked my keys in it lol.

i did that one day and had to call AAA to unlock my dam truck at 2 in the morning when i got off work... the dude looked pissed lol

my friends 03 s10 all you have to do is kinda bang your knee against the locking mechanism on the drivers side and the lock pops up.
