Not sure this is worth mentioning......but might save someone some heartburn. Got home tonight and my agenda was to get the hole drilled in the back of the pocket. My OCD kicked in 😁 and I started worrying about drilling with the drill motor.
I pulled the access / trash bag holder plate (or whatever it’s suppose to be) and looked back in there with a flashlight. There is a wiring harness right behind the pocket (upper left of picture) , it would probably clear, but I could see the 1/2” drill bit snagging one of the wires, twisting it up, and shredding the wire insulation.
So I inserted the block as a guide and used a pair of vice grips on the bit to work it through the plastic. Probably a no brainer, and you gents know these trucks better than I do - but what a pain if one of those small wires got damaged behind the dash.
