I've been meaning to (when I get some free time..yea right) play with removing one of the "fog light caps" and try to design a 3d printed recessed base that would hold one of those lights or similar. Will post when/if I get something made up. In regards to off use only, I usually relay them off of the high beams anyways, so normally they'd be off.
I've had thoughts of trying to design a mount just about like those to 3d print. Temp might be an issue though. Was thinking I'd wire up a relay off of the high beams so I wouldn't have to worry about adding an extra switch...
Just a note...I was under my truck the other day and see that all but one section of my HVAC tape has came off. I imagine if I would have wrapped all the way around the pipe, it wouldn't have came off as easily.
Curious myself. Stock suspension or w/ lift?
Personally, I've found good dash speakers can make a dramatic, easy improvement to sound quality...usually easy. I'm holding off for now until I get some other projects out of the way...it looks like a P.I.A.
I'm in the same boat Hydro. Would be nice to be able to turn off the TPMS, or find aftermarket sensors that aren't as much as the tire. Unless I can find a set of reasonably priced takeoff wheels on Craigslist w/ sensors for the 2019/20's, I might have to use my $5 tire gauge and live with the added dash lights for a couple months.
I was thinking a way for a video input would be cool for a front camera in the grill for parking...
I tucked in the usb cable from my dashcam into the headliner, then down the passenger pillar, then into the fuse panel on the passenger side. Picked up a 12v to 2 usb converter and one of those piggyback fuse thingies. Someone here noted the 7.5a fuse for the heated steering wheel is a good location to tap into. Has worked perfectly. Used double sided 3M tape to mount the transformer box to the inside of the dash, and used a bolt that is down by the footwell for the ground.
As in MPG calculation? I've figured it out @ the pump/trip meter only twice so far and the first calculation was a fuzz worst than the onboard computer reading, and this last one was about .25mpg better. Great MPG for long, non stop 60-70mph cruising, but this last tank is going down @ around 18mpg with a lot of stop & go driving, and have to admit I haven't been too easy on it...
