    Nice. Is there a link for that panel or do I just send a PM? Do you have a link for the USB port? Thanks.

    Not the sexiest, but definitely one of my favorite additions to any truck I've built...

    This @sPOD BantamX HD system makes wiring, powering and controlling accessories absolutely delightful!

    The initial install of the system isn't all that bad either. Basically, mount everything using the provided drilling templates and connect it to your positive battery terminal and a chassis ground. The hardest part was literally routing the wires, which is easy once you stop overthinking and actually start doing it LOL.

    Mounted in the most obvious location for now, works great and easy to access. The default blue backlight matches the factory lighting perfectly. Super solid feel and button feedback. Now I have to find 6 other accessories to power, this could turn into a really pricey mod...

    [​IMG]

    Again, mounted to the most straightforward location. All necessary hardware is included.

    [​IMG]

    Once the system is installed, it's really easy to add accessories. Ditch whatever clusterfuck of a wiring harness came with your powered accessory. Grab a couple connectors and crimp them onto your hot and ground wires. Heatshrink the ends and connect them to this power distribution unit. Each circuit is numbered and labeled so you know exactly which button will control it from inside the vehicle. A bunch of crimp connectors and heatshrink tubing is already included too.

    [​IMG]

    This mod will pay for itself over and over, every time I add another powered accessory. No more dreaded wiring after spending hours installing a new part or creating a rat's nest of messy wires in the engine bay. Well worth it.

    What grill insert/grate is that? Looks good and I like that it retains the Toyota emblem

    My old boss has an 87. He won't let it go. He's been looking for a frame repair shop. Any chance you know of one?

    Or maybe other members do? Not sure how many miles he has, but when rust hits before the engine gives you know you have a solid build.

    Those look like semi modern Dodge RAM wheels.
    Always thought they would look good on a tundra.
    But, what are they?

    Wanted to work on my Sherpa rack. SWMBO had other plans. Spent the day doing yardwork instead.

    I scuffed them up with a red scuff pad, 3 coats of rustoleum auto primer and regret it. It went on super grainy and was awful to try and smooth out. Wish I went with another brand. Then 3 coats or Dupli-color Graphite HWP102 wheel paint, then two coats of clear. Not the greatest paint job but I’m happy with it overall.

    Thanks! Been growing more and more on me today.

    Started insulating the topper. This stuff is rated R6. Thought that was pretty good for 1" foam insulation and worth a few extra dollars.
    With just the sides done it's 20 degrees cooler in there. Purdy good since it's not even close to being done.

    IMG_20230828_180624067.jpg

    Cut the top of the sleeping platform and added a piano hinge. Makes it so much easier to access things when I'm stuck inside the topper. Covered the piano hinge with gorilla duct tape to protect the mattress.

    Not to thread jack, but quick question for you. Where would I get a 2 pin connector to attach wires to the rear sliding window motor for the double cab? I gave up on the parking light issue for now until I am done with this window project.

    You can purchase connectors from Toyota dealer. Then crimp on the correct pins and insert into connector

    Use the 2.0 section of the 18-21 EWD to find the connector name. Then look that connector name up in section 6.0 to get the part number (usually starts with 90980-).
    That looks like it might be a sealed-style connector, so I would then take that part number over to https://www.corsa-technic.com/index.php and look it up there to see if they have it for purchase. It will be cheaper than toyota if they do, and will come with the terminals rather than having to buy the pigtails from toyota
