    No worries brother, no offense taken.

    Cause the cab makes an easy, convienent place to mount stuff. It keeps me more or less out of the weather and in the shade. Basically the cab is a concession to comfort. :D

    No way am I gonna hassle with street legality. It would have to be smogged, I'd have to re-register it and get my conventional plates back- It has a green sticker like an ATV now. Not to mention all the lights and wiring stuff like you mentioned. I have a tow rig and trailer... Thats how it's gonna stay. ;)

    Didn't know about having all the smog crap. No inspections out here. All we need is working lights and a horn to be street leagle.

    I'm sure it's gonna fall out sooner or later, when it does I'll replace it. I think it's gonna drive me crazy too. :)

    The shift knobs came from WFO Concepts.

    They're just down the road man, halfway between here and Auburn. Streeter Road. Just past Wolf Rd on 49.
