    Thanks man, I appreciate it. Where are you moving from and what partnor Denver are you moving to? I’m in Erie (Boulder).

    As far as fishing, I definitely am not a fisherman, actually I’d go as far as to say I have less than zero interest in fishing of any kind but it certainly is popular out here.

    Moving from SF. Bay Area native. It’s not what it once was. We got a short term spot in LoHi - house search is Potter Highlands, Park Hill, University Hills and so on.

    Understood on the fishing. It’s not for everyone. :)

    Just a heads up there’s a general disdain for Californians out here. The wide spread mentality is that Californians flee their state because of how bad things have gotten from pushing such extreme politics for so long but then they come here and continue to push those ideals that ruined their state.

    That and the amount of transplants from California and Texas that have have no idea how to drive in the snow let along mountains in the snow. Those 2 groups are not well received.

    That’s understandable and nothing I’m unfamiliar with.

    My family are from Oregon and I’ve dealt with the same generalized disdain from people in Oregon. I just show people who I am and don’t worry about it. All I can do. I don’t take it personally but I understand the sentiment.

    I’m not a loony leftist and have heard all of the same politics cases made and don’t disagree. I’ve got Wyoming, Oregon and Kansas blood in me and my dad taught me how to drive correctly, so it is what it is.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    When I travel to Colorado I go out of my way to be humble and chill. So far been well received by the mountain biking crowd in Durango, which can be rough.

    I’ve been meaning to get these pics up for a couple weeks. My wife took a day off of work so we could get out on a week day for a big hike. From the truck up to the first peak (14,270 feet) across the saddle over to a second peak (14,270 feet) and back down to the truck was a little over 9 miles with 4,000 feet of elevation gain.
    [​IMG]
    We started early, the sun just up enough to hit that peak.

    The problem is there's not much air available up that high when you try to take that breath lol.

    No I'm not an FBI agent but that has kind of been a running joke. I work in quality testing and development of preproduction and prototype vehicles and technology for the luxury and exotic lines of a specific auto group. Given the nature of the job, every aspect of everything I do is secret. With the non discloure and confidentiality agreements legally I can't tell people what exactly I do, where I do it, or who I do it for, then add in very extensive work travel and serial numbered tamper-proof stickers blocking the cameras on my phone, and people are convinced I'm a secret agent of some kind. That's where the Agent comes from, the outside part is obvious... I love the outdoors and I spend as much time as I can there. Agent_Outside started as a name for Instagram, from there I've started using it more places.

    Ask me again 4 years after I leave my job lol. That’s when I’m allowed to discuss things because at that point everything I’ve been involved with will have been unveiled to the public.

    Great thread Agent!

    Many buy a 4Runner with the intention of doing exactly what you're doing...but end up crawling the mall instead. Good to see you're able to get out there! Nice that you can add some biking and kids activities as well.

    Awesome!
    Little dude is about ready for an upgrade. Going so fast he even had some head shake. I foresee a mountain bike under the tree for him this year.

    I decided to beef up the wiring for the circuit that will power the fridge, this is from the fuse in power distribution module to the plug and play connector for the circuit.
    [​IMG]

    Running the wiring to the back.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now to figure out how I want to wire it- hardwire it with a connector, or install a 12v power outlet, and either way where should I put it when I have the JBl system. I do want the fridge on that side because that’s the side with the child seat, meaning we never fold that side seat down flat. [​IMG]

    And since I was working in the engine bay for the first time ever I cleaned the engine bay a bit. Just sprayed it down with foamy engine cleaner and then rinsed it with water.

    Running wiring and planning out a slide mount.
    [​IMG]

    I only have 3 rivnuts on hands so I had to order more but here's the plan. I made a cut a board out of 1/2" birch plywood and shaped it slightly to fit snug up against the passenger side trim. I'm going to put 2 or 3 rivnuts in that crossbar to mount th front of the board. I verified its open under neight the bod so I'll put 2 or 3 more in the back along with metal spacers. I'll cut out holes in the styrofoam layer for the spacer to pass through. I cut the insulation off the underside of the trunk carpet where the board will sit to reduce the height a little bit. Right now I'm still waiting on the fridge slide to continue, its held up being shipped out of FL because of hurricane Dorian causing problems. Once the board is mounted I'll line up the slide to have it as far forward and the side as I can without anything hitting anything. When the mounting is figured out I'm going to use pronged t nuts inder the board to mount the slide from the top. I'd trim down the board as much as possible then Bedliner the whole board to keep it protected and waterproof. With this setup when I take it out for ski season its 4 quick bolts to remove the side and no other hassle.

    It should right about here, it'll still clear the privacy cover.
    [​IMG]



    I got the wiring almost buttoned up yesterday. Its ran, it's grounded, and I put some temporary terminals on it to just to turn it on so I could verify the wiring. Dometic has a hardware socket kit thats 25 feet of 10 gauge wire, seeing as I'm running one of the smaller fridges and my run of wire is only about 17 feet or so I opted to go with 12 awg. the temporary hook up was to verify the wire is gauged ok to not impede function. As the fridge compressor starts the max voltage drop on startup is right around .28 volts, that'll work fine. 0.0 is ideal but not worth running like 6 or 8 awg. The performance will be just fine, the one potential concern is the battery protection could kick in earlier if it thinks the battery is lower than it is because of a voltage drop. But, I have everything aftermarket running through a low voltage disconnect right at the second battery so I don't need to utilize the fridges internal battery protection.

    I realize I didn't take many pictures, I'll try to grab a few more today, especially if I finish up the wiring.

    Not at all a hidden gem. In fact it’s seen so much foot traffic you can’t just go anymore. Your required to go to the town, pay for a permit to hike it, and get shuttles in and out from there.

    I went out of town for a few days and then got sick. Today I finished up the car side wiring. Still waiting for the slide to move forward from here. It should get delivered Thursday, we’ll see how much I can get done before I go back out of town again.

    I got the fridge install finished.

    I was kinda planning out the space. I didnt have enough rivnuts on hand so I had to order more but this was the gist of it. I wanted to to do 3 rivnuts along the brace and 2 towards the back with spacers.

    I cut off the insulation from the underside of the carpet where the board would sit to give it a more solid surface on the hard foam under the carpet and bring the overall height down a hair.

    I countersank the 5 holes to mount the board the to the floor of the body so it sits flat and flush and for the side to attached I used pronged t nuts that were glued and hammered in. Then I coated the board with black primer/sealer scuffed it up and hit it with 4 coats of bedliner.

    I cut holes in the thick foam for the spacers to slide in, then I cut small holes in the trunk carpet for the bolts to pass through and I cut out a section of the Canvas Back liner so it can just be permanently sandwiched in there and mounted up the board. Its super solid, it doesn't flex or move.

    From there I bolted up the DFG Offroad slide.

    I checked to see how long I'd need the wiring before cutting the 12v plug off and installing an Anderson SB50 connection.

    When I was planning everything I was measured known dimensions out with a tape measure and made some assumptions about the unknowns and it was going to be to close to tell if it would fit with the privacy cover or not. I'm happy to say it all came together exactly how I had hoped.
    You can retract the cover and the fridge can be opened and closed as it sits. With the cover in place, it can be slid right out and opened.

    We already got to put the fridge to good use tailgating for the Chicago Bears visit to Denver, they pulled off a win in a thriller.

    It's so nice having always the perfect temperature drinks ready to go.
