I ordered a cab-chassis and could not order some of the bells and whistles, I need a 203" for my flatbed is why I ordered.
I too wish to add Blind spot monitoring, adaptive criuse, and enhanced trailer tow. I know some sensors are in the taillight, which I don't have but through disection of a damaged one A proper camera or radar can be installed.
I understand it will be expensive, and I might have to buck up and buy some parts from the dealership, and that wiring might have to be scavenged from wrecking yards. I really don't expect to find the pigtail just sitting there blanked off, but will take a look.
First thing is to install a bed camera, I ordered the Factory camera system for the Cab Chassis but it did not come with the bed camera, it is on it's way and the Headache rack will allow visibility. Same for the aftermarket bumper and the adaptive cruise.
Are there any other tinker'ers out there? How about a way to hack the ECM? I would really like the exhaust brake to default ON. Unless someone can impart a reason why It should be off all the time.
