    One year ago today, @BlueBottle posted his installation pictures and became the first customer to install the FRAC Harness.

    I was just reminiscing and thinking about how almost a year prior to that, I was just trying to figure out a way to see beyond the hood and park my new Tundra without jumping out to check the curb distance. When I soldered together a bunch of wire and parts to build that first FRAC harness, I never considered that hundreds of other people would want one as well.

    I’ve learned a lot about the business side over the past year, and I put a lot of time and effort into building every FRAC harness to the standards I want for my own truck. I take a lot of satisfaction from that, but the most rewarding part of it for me is building a product that people love. I haven’t really advertised or marketed the FRAC harness and so the business has grown slowly; mostly by word of mouth on this awesome forum! I really love that.

    Demand is growing and I want to keep pace and maintain quality. I’ve also got a few other ideas in the works and they are slowly moving towards realization. So I’m continuously learning how to do things more efficiently. It’s a fun journey so far. I hope to keep it going for a while.

    So thanks to all of you who have entrusted a few of your hard-earned dollars with me. I hope you are still happy with the product. And a great big thanks to the mods who make this forum and this great community a reality. We’ve got a pretty special place here.

    Have a safe and happy Holiday.

    Lou

    Thanks Lou. Great product I’ve turned several of guys at work onto you.
    Happy Independence Day to you and your family.
    Ps, phone mirroring thing not worth it.

    Thanks, and I appreciate the referrals! I agree with you about the mirroring, it’s something that sounded cool when I first put the FRAC together, but it turned out to be a lot of expense and effort for very little utility.

    Thanks again !! I use my FRAC every day and could not live without it . I use the rear camera in traffic as much as the front for parking . Proud to be part of that first group of customers !

    I've got a lot of respect and admiration for you Lou, even if you are a Texan.....:rofl::boink: :crapstorm:. Seriously, great product, great quality and a great price. I seldom use it for parking like I'd imagined I would. It gets used 90% of the time off road. It's a fantastic upgrade and one of my favorite mods. When people mention the obvious mods I've done I'm quick to boast about the forward camera. It's kinda like rolling up along side an F150 and dropping the rear window.:D Thanks Lou!

    Wow! Right up there with the rear window? Now THAT is a compliment! Almost makes up for the Texan comment... almost. :D
