    Someone else had already installed an aftermarket radio in it and the wiring in it was a mess. I got it out and thought there was no way I was going to be able to figure it out. but it turns on and sounds come out of the speakers. Now I just have to put my dash back together.

    i have bought some used cars and trucks in the past with aftermarket stereos and some of them you knew an idiot that didn't know crap about wiring had to have hooked them up.

    i hate pulling interior pieces out and having to put them back in. :mad:

    edit: have you started the new job yet?

    The whole dash had to come apart just to get the radio out. I'm going to have to probably replace a couple of pieces at some point if I can't get them to stay in place since the stupid plastic clips broke. And the plastic trim piece up along the windshield has been cracked for years.
    I start Monday. I nervous and excited. I need to go drop my tool box off tomorrow.

    very common problem on the Dodge trucks. the IP bezels are bad about cracking as well.

    if you want a new dash and IP bezel, LMC Trucks has them at a reasonable price. about a third of what Dodge wants for them.

    This is part of the actual dash so it will probably always be like that.

    this one is just a trim piece I can probably replace. It's cracked in a few places. More than before I took it apart.

    i have heard, (don't know it to be factual though.) that the IRS has people that get a cut of the winnings before the winner gets his share, when the winnings go over a certain amount.

    i do know you have to pay taxes on any winnings, but i'm not sure how they can guarantee compliance with paying the taxes on the winnings.

    Trust me- casinos, lotteries and game shows have arrangements with the IRS before they turn loose of a nickel of a major jackpot.
