    Thank you! I will check them out. That is the only thing I do not like about my truck.

    Yeah. That’s something I wish they’d have done from the start. Apparently some of the 2018’s have them.

    I was looking at ordering a Pop and Lock or buying the parts (actuator, etc.) and making one myself.
    The cheapest I can find a Pop and Lock PL8535 online is $83 and the parts for a homemade rig is at least $30-40 plus the aggravation.
    I called a local installer and they will order and install the Pop and Lock PL8535 for $79 all in.
    Can’t beat that!

    I got mine from Amazon $86.09 and still haven't put it on, so $79 for everything is excellent.

    I ordered everything I need to install the stuff myself for about 20-25 bucks

    I’ve seen people do this but haven’t tried it. Not a bad route. Essentially a home made pop and lock.

    They still don’t have it in stock. I’m thinking the guy misquoted me and they won’t own up to it. lol.

    $79 sound about right. I think I read here or somewhere else something like that. So he might do it.

    That’s the best deal out there. Did mine and it was kind of a pain.

    Looks like it is. It seems the best way to go is through the firewall.

    I’ve seen where a lot go through the floor of the truck on the passenger side. I don’t like that idea myself.
