I re wired my ARB switches so that the front and rear lockers can be turned on and off independently.

Image

Not a "Leo wiring job" but it seems to work... Ya need that plastic tool to remove the top of the switch without breaking it. :roll:

I hard wired my iPhone plug to my Kenwood DDX371 Head Unit. This way I can plug my phone in and hold it with the RAM mount up near the rear-view mirror where I like it.

Image

I hard wired my Rexing V1 Dash Cam using a Rexing Mini-USB Hardwire Kit. It runs from an accessory plug in the trucks fuse panel, inside the driver’s side pillar, under the headliner and comes out near the rear-view mirror.

Image

No more wires hanging!

Looking good, Tom.

I've got some wiring to do still on my truck.

Besides my secondary cat being unnecessary in NYS they melted the protective cover on my front driveshaft. Walker Exhaust makes sections that replace the secondary cats and include bungs for the o2 sensors.
53345 (driver side), 54338 (passenger side).

Top right in montage is an Irwin impact ez out and the F’d up busted bolt I was able to extract using an impact gun…sweet little tool.

Now I need to get a new driveshaft cover…

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I’m not sure what is the true cause of knocking my back window out a couple of times within the past year. Larger tire size (35 from 33”), running tougher trials since my SAS, my bad driving or some combination… I seem to be hitting the tire and pushing it and the hilift into the glass when I’m dropping off an obstacle.

I doubt I’ll pick up any new skills before ECXC19 so I’m going to try wheeling the truck with the spare and hilift inside instead of hanging off the back.

I got a three point off-road spare tire tie-down and some heavy anchors that are almost flush when not in use. This way I can still have the back seats when the tire is back outside.

Image

These are tested to 5000lb Minimum Breaking Strength in vertical pull.

I hooked the ratchet part into the baby seat anchor in the back of the truck and secured the anchors through the body.

Image

I am hopeful I will return to Brooklyn after ECXC19 with all glass intact!

I'm curious to see how the new spare tire location works out for you.

I think it's just another way of keeping passengers out of your truck.

My cigar smoking, bad language and inability to suffer fools is normally enough to keep folks away...
