Before YouTube, I installed car stereos for a living

Many of you have commented and messaged links to the howcast videos. This is the backstory of those videos, and how they came to be. Today, we'll also do some work to Alexander's camper van.

    Access (Metra) data harnesses are usually NOT “FTW”. Sucks PAC doesn’t (currently) make a module for that vehicle. Also, it probably is a 2018. You need to check the tenth digit on the VIN to verify the model year, the given number or letter will indicate the correct year. (I installed an overhead TV in a 2007 Yukon in February of 2006. ‘07 was the first big refresh they’d done since like ‘98 and we thought it was cool it was out so early.)

    Any vehicle with a manufacturer date passed June of that year will be considered the year following, so June to December of 2017 would make it a 2018.

    I am rarely a fan of just throwing LED or HID bulbs into halogen housing. Those types of bulbs are FAR better for use in projector lenses. Do it right and hack those stock light housing up and throw in some nice projectors. Get you some crazy good light. As of now, you just risk blinding oncoming traffic. Better yet, leave the stock bulbs in and add an LED light bar for use when there isn't oncoming traffic. More light than you can shake a stick at.
