    Too much crap
    I may have gone a tad bit overboard here, but oh well. I have a 2010 4Runner, so my front turn signals are also DRLs that are on whenever the truck is running. I have LEDs instead of halogens, and the load resistors (50W 6ohm) get REALLY hot whenever I'm driving for longer than half an hour. I finally decided to do something about it today. Had some leftover 1/6" aluminum plate so I basically turned it into a heatsink for the resistor. Mounted the resistor to the aluminum plate (4.5" x 2.5") with some red RTV in between em to help with heat dissipation, then added some leftover grill mesh to sort of make a protective cage around it so that other wires/mud/etc don't come into contact with it and I don't have to worry about getting burned by it. Used some aluminum flat bar to make a mount for it, and bolted that to the steel front bumper support bracket. Made a second one for the other side of the truck as well. Works like a champ and I don't have to worry about em anymore! Like I said though, I may have put too much thought and effort into this...

    Looks comfortable enough for the night when necessary lol. Mine looks about that organized for very short periods between doing anything in the garage. Right now it’s a royal mess and my 4runner sleeps outside until I finish up a little square-tube roof rack project. I need to put a cot in the garage to see if it motivates me to finish it.

    Working on it
    I had a big day today...
    I lowered the pressure in my Nitro Ridge Grapplers (285/70/17) from 40psi to 36psi.

    Kidding aside, it did improve the ride quality.

    Installed the SDHQ ABS guards and an OEM black hood scoop insert. Details can be found at my build page (link at the bottom of this post). I will be adding a black hood decal to stop glare when it arrives. I ordered it from MyWyfsRnnr.

    P.S. I adjusted the bracket, so the brake line was in the cutout.

    Installed my smoked sequential mirror blinkers and hood scoop vinyl. Both look great and the hood scoop vinyl should come from the factory, absolutely no more glare.

    great stuff! Can you show the whole front of the car so we get an idea of the full visual effect. My hood scoop always gets so dirty (white), tired of it.
    What’s the part number for the black one?

    nice! Mine leaked from day one. Was so tired and cost me 100$ in supplies so gave up and returned it. Would love another go one day. I hope yours is solid and leak proof! ;)

    Works great and no issues. Biggest issue with the install was getting the fan off due to limited room and needed a second pair of hands for part of the installation. Check out my build page for details of the install.

    looks good. Reminds me of how bad I need to get out there and organize mine.
    Where did you get the hook for your ramps? I’d like to do that to get mine off the floor.

    After months and months of the Ultimate Camping Mod Wiring harness laying there in its package and countless of camping trips later, I finally got around to installing it. I was a little hesitant on drilling into the quarter panel trim piece due to the price of it and I didn’t care for the black switches against the tan trim. I feel this location will be okay until I build out the platform and drawer system.
