Installed a Garmin GPS.
Still need to make the power wire disappear somehow.

Installed ARB rear diff locks.

I already had stock diff locks, but they were not working. And couldn't install the ARB Air lockers without replacing the stock differential cover.

Sandblasted the "new" diff cover and painted it

Here is a picture of the buttons setup, with an additional button that switches off the electrical current from the diff locks buttons, so that they don't get pressed by accident when the car is at the carwash for example...

The air compressor installed in the hood came with an air outlet that will defenetly come in handy after a crawling or snow offroading session

Got those 15x10 inch steel rims,
Sand blasted them, powder coated them, installed them, HATED them and removed them!

how do you like the Coopers? I'm running the ATRs now but will have to get new shoes probably next year and kind of want to stick with Cooper but go more aggressive.

Several Reasons BOSS;
They were sticking too much to the outside for my taste,
and with the tires that I'm running (32x11.5) there was hardly anny rubber left to stick out of the Rim, if you know what I mean.
Plus the "agressive" sidewall of the STT was practicly gone; meaning first thing that would hit the rock at the side of the tire would be the "soft" rubber on the sidewall...
And last but not least, the front wheels rubbed hard on the fenders during the first couple of yards that I drove them!

Now I LOVE black wheels, but the combination of 32x11.5x15 with 15x10 Rims, I did not like.

I love them and would recommend them.
Very good grip on all kinds of surfaces.

But 15" rims are awesome.



Hopefully you'll find something you'll like.

Small updates

Since I got my truck it was missing the washer fluid container cap.
So I made one out of two plastic gallons caps squeezed into each other, painted black with the washer fluid symbol and all. :-)

and here it is installed

Installed bed rails and rubber bed mattress and a fixture that would prevent the mattress from flying away on the highway.

Still have to black everything out.
