I have an eye doctor friend knew about this little loophole but have never thought to ask if I could get one even though I'm darkened.

All wired up for now...
Speedrye build - Page 9 DSCN2310_zps9678ba9d

I crimped/soldered all the connectors on to the lighting wiring as well:

I also hooked up the 4 gauge power and ground in addition to the main PAC 200 relay:

I've got almost everything working currently in a test configuration. It's ugly for now, so I'm not posting pictures of it quite yet. Laughing

All lights work wonderfully, the PAC 200 switches power properly when the key is turned to accessory, so that's good too. No issues thus far, but I'll run it for a few weeks to decide if I want to change any connections before I mount everything permanently. Very pleased so far.

I'm so tired of wiring right now, so I decided to do something simple and effective for a change. I got the idea from the Blue Room and liked the general concept. Now I've got space for my wife's crap in addition to a few other items and this gives me my center console back!

Before you ask, the airbag comes out of the top and folds over this area with a gap right where this rack is. So long as I don't stick anything sharp out of the top, I'll be good in case of accident.

Total cost, around $55.

I like it. Is it something from MPAC or OBDF?

None of the above. I included links above for each item. The shifter rack is MPAC though.

Nice work on the rack. Looks a lot better than the one I saw on the blueroom IMO

If your visors still have some real estate left, you could probably put quite a few things on them!

I've been taking a break from FJing for a bit, but I'm slowly ramping up for some maintenance. I'm coming up on 90k miles and so far, the truck has needed NOTHING. The original brake pads are on there still and will need to be changed soon, so I went ahead and ordered some new front rotors and some Green Stuff pads for all four corners.

Since I'll have my gusseted spindles to install, I figure I might as well do it all at once. Currently I'm planning to replace the rotors, pads, spindles, bearings, and CV axles. That should take care of most wear items in the front. I'll clean up my stock CVs and use one as a trail spare. The current spindles will probably be gusseted and sold off.

It's not much fun, but I plan on having this thing for awhile, so I might as well keep it in great shape!

Good plan Ryan! Good to see you've been 90,000 miles with no issue!

Nothing but changing fluids, tires and wipers. Can't beat that as far as maintenance goes!

Ryan, I'm in the exact same boat as you. Just hit 90k, and no issues whatsoever! As soon as I get my tax return, I plan on hitting up Brian @ ASI and have him look the truck over and see what all needs attention. At this point, I'm thinking basic tune up and breaks within the next year. I'll need Brain's expertise to check out the rest...
