I need to go back monday and get the temp sensor. I forgot where it was and the color of the wires for it.

How big did everyone cut the hole for the mount?

Yeah, cut small. I think I enlarged the hole about 30 times when I did mine.

Here's the opening in the headliner from my truck...


Its actually a bit shorter than the bracket, so I could shove the pieces in between the bracket and the headliner so it sat flush.

Nice man. I got one too I need to get done. I have to paint mine before it goes in. I have a good idea on how to make sure you dont cut it to much. Put the OHC up against the headliner like its installed and take a pencel and trace the OHC that way you know exactly where it will be and you dont cut it to far. Then just take the eraser and erase the pencel.

Nice! I just pressed the bracket up againt the headliner and made an impression, then cut out that area, then test fit and cut more as needed. It looks sweet up there and totally blends with the rest of the interior. My brother said it looked factory installed.

I absolutely love mine, its my favorite mod in the truck. I've gotten the factory installed thing as well, love it when people ask me that lol. The hardest thing for me was just getting it up there centered so I can see where I needed to cut. Luckily I got it right. Good luck!
