Take your dash cluster apart and paint the bezel the same color as the AC rings. Did mine silver and it looks a lot better than the factory black.

I love my Daystar upper dash panel. $25 or so and easy to install.

4 flat washers under each of the 4 front bracket bolts, 3 flat washers under each of the rear seat bracket bolts. Use a little lock tite on the threads

I like this too. The stock panel should have a tray system or something similar to the aftermarket ones. Somewhere to PUT STUFF.

I am a little confused on this. I put some washers under the 4 front bolts lifting the legs some, and it seems to be a little bit more comfortable. But if you put some washers under the rear seat it just raises it some but does not really have much of a change in anything. I want to have the back lean back further. Anybody know a quick/easy way to do that?

When I put those washers under the front bolt of the rear bracket, it tipped the bracket up just a little, which in turn tipped the back of the seat back about 2, which may not sound like a lot, but it made a huge difference!

Ok cool i'll work on it a little bit when I get home. I got the front done and was messing with the back but couldn't get the actual "lean back" going. Maybe I didn't give it enough oomph?

Why would you put washers in the back seat mounts/ wouldn't that just raise the back seat? It seems like you would just put washers in in the front of the rear seat mounts. It seems like a good idea though.

The rear brackets have front bolts and rear bolts. If you only do the front brackets, the front of the seat goes up, but the back of the seat stays the same (really uncomfortable). If you put washers under the front bolts of the rear brackets, the back of the seat leans back.

Have you seen how the 2010 has the tray insert in the center console compartment? My buddy got a 2010 and I was pissed that they didn't make that simple addition 2 years earlier for the 2008. So I went and bought the tray ($25) and 4 (1/2 inch) round-head screws and screwed them into the inside lip of the console and plopped it inside. Perfect, easy mod!!
