I like how they warn the entire cabinet falling on your head may "distract the driver".

Is this the plastic storage tray above the dash on the driver side? Or is it the wood cabinet behind the driver and passenger that extends all across?

when the driver is sitting in the driver's seat, and looks straight up at the "ceiling", it's THAT surface.


This flaw can dump the entire contents of the over-the-cab storage cabinet on your head.

In my opinion the "fix" is poor. It's just a metal bracket in the rear. the problem is that the front down, then rips off the rear screws and the entire ceiling falls. Better fix: I removed the ceiling covering easily; just pop off the buttons then unscrew the snaps. then you have full access to the metal frame. I put 4 more 3" self-tapping screws, heavier than the two skinny ones the factory put in. I feel this is much better. The rear is attached just fine; I checked those screws and they are as long as possible already, and plenty of them are in. Sometimes you can do it yourself better.

AND get it done faster too. Good job! Did you get any pictures of your work? Others would benefit from seeing those.
