ZooDad type mod for 6.0L PSD (2006)
PSDave’s style ZooDad mod, performed Nov ’05. Some use a Dremmel, others a door-knob-hole cutter. My son used a ROTOZIP on his 7.3L. I used a reciprocating DeWalt saw with a 24 TPI blade. Information here is not earth shaking ... just a confidence builder to those who are unsure. It's a righteous mod.
1: Stock, stock, really stock truck, before “the mod.”
2: Take off the 4 top 5.5mm screws and the grille falls forward.
3: It was safe to make this cut with the sawsall, so I did.
4: I placed a 1/2" hole to feel around. No tubes, pipes or wires.
5: So, I cut some more.
6: I made another 1/2" penetration like #3. Did a #4, and this is the result, a rough, but adequate hole.
7: This is the fiberglass removed.
8: Vacuumed the fiberglass dust real well.
9: A good spray with Armor All (glossy), and a quick wipe. And put grille back on.
That’s all to it!
I used a mask and latex gloves when sawing the fiberglass – dust collection utilized. 30+ dB ear protection and safety goggles were worn. Full compliance with CAL OSHA rules and regulations were observed - and as always, NO animals were hurt, no fur used, and no habitat was disturbed!
