I can answer 2 and 4. Put the dial on off to turn off the rain sense wipers. And press lock then hold the circular arrow button to remote start!

If that doesn't work you'll need to check that autostart is enabled in the vehicle settings.

Fog lights are a 9005 or H16. Go LED! Easy to change just get under the truck rear of the bulb is exposed

the rear hitch cover was designed to not stay on. throw it away like everyone else or just loose it on the highway when you get a chance.

Fog lights: go HID, long lasting and much brighter
Hitch cover: verify if It has been repaired with putty, the extra weight will cause it not to hold....you will probably need to replace (check ebay)

humm, that's pretty interesting, I might look into those LED bulbs for my fogs, I was planning on going with HID's but this might be easier since I won't have to mount a balast...

Do you happen to know what kinda bulb is the DRL? Might order all the lights when they get it in stock.

I just converted every bulb in the entire truck except for the HID with LED this past week, I couldn't be more impressed.

Is the LED in the fog bright enough or did you do it for looks ??

Wondering the same thing. DLR's are fine if it's just for looks but for the fogs I'd like to have useful light. An easy change I was considering was simply silverstars, but HID will give me the looks and light.

Husky liners makes a complete set of rubber mats including under and inbetween the captain charis. I just purchased a set.

There is a updated hitch cover available. You have to drill 2 holes in the bumper for it.

I have an 08.

My hitch cover at one point kept falling off, they told me there was a new updated design, after getting a new one, never had the issue again. It's finally snug...

As for auto start, press the lock button once, then hold the "Remote Start" button until the lights flash once and the engine starts. Keep in mind it only runs for 5 minutes, and after it turns off automaticly you can only start it up once again for another 5 minutes until you have to actually go in the vehicle and use a key.

As for the rain sensor, consult the manual, it tells you how to deactivate the system so it goes back to "normal folk" mode, hahaha.

My remote start runs for 10 minutes 2 times.
