It's clearly a psychic tire. It was "channeling" the china bombs.

The monitor is already mounted (using the suction cup) to the very bottom left of the windshield, tucked in right against the door frame.
I ran the cable down a gap to near where the brake release pull is, and wired it up to one of the Upfitter Switch pigtails (just using a wire nut), and a ground screw nearby.
What a pain in the butt to get to those upfitter wires tho'. If they'd made them just a couple inches longer the whole job would've taken a quarter of the time. Also the wire insulation of those wires is a pain too. Even with the right gauge wire strippers the insulation didn't want to pull off, seemed super tough.

Anyway, all done now, and I can either leave it switched on, and it'll turn on/off with the ignition (whereas my 12v outlets are all permanently on) or just turn it on with the switch as needed.
Can still remove it by just unclipping it from the mount, and unplugging the connector, if I want it to hand while inflating tires.


I think I'm going to have to steal that!!! Where were the Upfitter switch wires located at?

The upfitter switch wire tails are up right behind the parking brake release lever.
Don't confuse them with the separate bigger bundle of wire tails that go through the firewall to the engine compartment.
There's 4 wires, one for each switch. I used the lowest rated one which is switch #3 and is a green/violet striped wire.

I can try to take photos tomorrow

Last two days; changed oil in generator, washed (Wash Wax All) roof to tires, waxed lower half of driver's side, 303 on roof and driver side tires, lubricated some of the slide seals, and started loading in some canned goods. Oh and refreshed some of the peppermint stations.
