This whole project took about 3 hours from start to finish.
Below is a list of supplies I used when working on this project. Most can be found on amaon with free shipping and 1-2 day shipping.
- Silicone: I went thru 3 tubes of this. In my opinion you can not have too much but you can have too little. The more silicone used, theless likely you are to have a leak.
- Plus Nut Installer: This is a requirement if you are going to install this yourself. Its as important as having air for your tires.
- Extra Plus Nuts: Not necessary but if you mess up one time you will be stuck with holes in your roof. I messed up and was sooooooo happy that I had purchased an extra set.
- Center Punch: Just incase to get that hole in the right spot. Or use a Center Drill like I did.
- Step Drill: The roof is sheet metal, and the headliner is not far below the roof. This will cut a clean, hole and allow you to have controll over the depth. It also will last for all the holes.
- Drill Bit: This is the drill bit you need to get the proper size hole for the Plus Nut. This is the final hole to drill.
- Dremel Bits: To help clean arround the hole and remove the bead of silicone they applied at the factory if needed.
- Dewalt Cordless Vacum: This is the vacume I used to keep the chips from the headliner. I use it all the time in the truck. If you have other dewalt 20v / 60v tools I highly recomend this vacum.
- Drill Set with Batteries. (Batteries also work on vacum above) I ise these drills for everything from installing my bumper, drilling holes in the roof to unscrewing fastners in the truck.
