    Automotive question?

    97-02 DODGE RAM 1500 2500 3500 OVERHEAD CONSOLE TRIP - eBay (item 220712335561 end time Dec-21-10 17:38:02 PST)

    I have a 2002 Dodge Ram and I would like to put a overhead console in. So my question is, is it possible to install one of these in a vehicle that was not built with one. and where do i go to get this done. and how much would this cost.

    First, I have no idea on cost.

    Are you looking to replace an existing overhead light?

    you most likely have some kind of an overhead light, which you could steal the electricity from to run the console. It is probably not a big deal to mount it since vehicles are designed to swap optional equipment. The real trouble would be how and were to mount sensors for outdoor temp. Also there is a compass it appears. Not sure what that needs to get a reading, maybe nothing.
