    Drawers in (only two screws in for fitment. Somehow I got the left side of the top drawer off by about 1/8” and made it sit crooked. So I’ll fix that tomorrow before drilling the holes for the bolts. T nuts installed in base plate to bolt everything down.

    Tomorrow I’m going to get the drawer faces and I checked the places Facebook out. It’s going to be overwhelming with how much of a selection they have. Once that’s done I think it will be ready for backers and carpet. I decided not to integrate the backing into the boxes so it can be removed with me adding the electronics into the cabinets (lights, cooling fans for the fridge etc.) I did get the fans placed and ran the disconnects from the blue sea.

    I am also looking at the possibility of adding a temperature switch in line that will close the circuit for the fans to kick on and off but that seems like overkill. Hopefully tomorrow we will get the faces cut and sanded for varnish, get the carpet on and mount the backs and fully bolt in the drawer slides (fix the one) . Let’s hope the weather holds out.

    Installed my ScanGauge. I need to send it off to get the firmware updated (so that I can display transmission temperature).

    Thank you for this!

    It forced me to go back and double check what I had entered earlier. I must have fat-fingered one of the X Command entries. Alternate #3 worked for me! I suspected (incorrectly) that mine needed a firmware upgrade since I purchased it many moons ago. I appreciate this sir.

    Took it camping. Made a mosquito net for the rear window. Got the net from HomeDepot, a few magnets from Amazon and some tape. It rained all night, had the window open 1/3. Very minimal water drops inside.

    Also took the rear seats out (half of it) and made a small platform out of scrap wood I had around the house. Gives you a decent foot more of space.

    Drawer system is 90% completed. Everything is together and bolted in. We went with leopard wood for the drawer faces. The other pieces we liked were a little more pricey than what we wanted to spend with how much we were going to have to waste. Each piece was 1 3/4 or more thicker and we only needed 1/2”. The leopard wood section we picked up was just right at 3/4 thick 10.25” wide and 48” long. This will actually leave us with some extra that we may utilize as a cover for the bottom tray. Fans are wired up and worked as intended, lights will be done tomorrow given weather cooperates again. The fridge is wired up and working and hopefully tomorrow I can get the drawer faces cut and varnished. In between coats we will add the carpet to the drawer bottoms and that’s it. The L track will be here next weekend but that’s a super easy install.

    You mean XREAS? Limited's dont have kdss. I'd make sure your mechanic knows the difference.

    New wheels and tires look great!

    Rip that Xreas system out (don't repair or replace) and get some quality aftermarket shocks all around.

    That's the plan! I want something mid-range with a small lift. I don't plan on doing any hardcore overlanding, but I will take it 2-3 times a year to have some fun. I am new to all of this and I'm open to suggestions. So if you or anyone else can offer advice, it'd be appreciated

    I know I just recently got my Grabber ATXs put on...but, I'm starting to think about upsizing them to 285s and hoping they'll fit with minimal modifications. That way I can take these current tires off and put them on my Truck that's needing some new shoes.

    *laughs* The Wife and I decided that sliders would be the next best upgrade. So, I bought some Cali Raised Sliders instead. Bigger tires are up next though! :thumbsup:

    :( Thats pretty much every panel. And judging from the tear by the wheelwell, it looks like the aluminum bodied truck. Sadness

    On a related note, i did get some pin striping on my last adventure. I used some of the ceramic infused turtle wax you spray on as u dry your car. Wow. You cant tell where most of them are from 3 feet away, unless you point it out. Good stuff.

    My rock sliders stick out from the sides of the vehicle. They hit trees, rocks, and walls before the door panels do.
