Congrats everyone on getting through this install. Also congrats on not dropping tools on your batteries and burning your trucks to the ground! Really nice to see so many of you using the directions I typed in here. My truck is just over a year old now; I've got 17K miles from driving from colorado to Arizona, Utah, Kansas several times and even towing to Wisconsin for the SCCA runoffs last fall. I wound up populating my switches with 1) 14 (!!) rock lights all around the perimeter. My wife made fun of me until the first time we went camping, and now we use them al
Hi all - does anyone know if this is possible? i have a camper on my truck. I want to use the bed AC outlet to power my camper fridge. It works great. Unfortunately I have to remember to press the button on the console. I am prone to forgetting so I’m wondering if the default can be changed in Truck startup? in other words, is it possible to program the truck so when I start it, the bed AC comes on? I’m aware it’s based on the alternators running.
I have a popup camper on my truck - I’ve been wanting to relocate that rear view mirror camera for a couple months. Makes total sense that you’d get a big blind spot by moving it backwards like that. maybe I won’t bother. I did move the tailgate camera to the back of the camper. That was a really great idea. Unfortunately there’s no way to get that signal to the rear view without significant work behind the dash. Specifically you’d have to get that camera wired directly to the rear view - plus none of the cameras work on the dash if one is disconnected so you’d have
My ford had the switches up there, and I never cared for it. Always felt like I had to look at them to figure out what switch I was hitting. While you can't really see them on the GM knee bolster, I can feel my way and know which button I'm hitting pretty easily. Just my thoughts... ...I'm really impressed with what you've done here tho.
That may have been the worst part. The lights I bought included a "Base" in case you wanted to mount them on a rollbar. I basically cut that base on an angle, so the lights would be canted out 45 degrees. I'll post some pix tonight. There just isn't a great place on the front of the truck. I thought about lower under the spoiler, but I'm sure they'd just get wiped off there by some rock. They're basically inside the tow hooks. If you look, you'll see what looks like two parallel lines running straight up, just to the inside of the tow hooks. I mounted them just above th
Finally got around to finishing this last night. No less than 14 of these little buggers scattered around the land barge. I took the time to redo some of the wiring that I wasn't happy with... I swapped out plain-old Harbor Freight butt connectors for those fancy ones that you heat up with a torch that seal out water. Really pleased with how this turned out. Total overkill but imagine pulling up to a BLM campsite at 10pm in Utah and unloading with those. Done.
We’ve seen white and blue on this thread. Black is kinda pointless. wonder if we’ll see a red one.
Switch #2: Combo offroad and driving lights. Baja Designs Squadron Pro: https://www.bajadesigns.com/products/squadron-pro-pair-driving-combo-led.asp They're 10% off with free shipping right now. I wanted something smaller, not a big light bar. I've been disappointed in those in the past - really all I need is some lower-speed light for going 25-45 offroad. They were easy to wire - bought the kit with the harness, and it literally all snapped together. Found a ground right by the driver's battery and ran the rest of the wire through the firewall like I
Very welcome! Very interesting on the driver side battery fuse. In my case, there's a completely empty post there, not another fuse. I in fact used that spot and added a relay and hard-wired in my camper to that spot. So my AT is different than yours!
That's cold white. They were out of all the other colors! I think it matches the stock LEDs pretty good - not perfect but it's not like one looks yellow vs the other. Wiring: Upffitter switch #1 to 12 ga wire. Back out normal place thru firewall. Down to driver's frame rail and all the way to the back. Zip tied to stock wiring. Near the Bed Step, I scotch-lok'd in another 12ga wire across the fuel tank then across the top of the heat shield to the other side. For grounds, there's a fantastic factory ground right above the spare tire to the driver's side. From there, each light is j
Had anyone looked at the area between the (diesel) air filter and passenger fender??? Looks like if you move the horns, there may be enough room there. If so, that seems like a great place to mount this ARB compressor. I’ll go look at the dimensions.
