Total Visions, Baja Camera System

http://i668.photobucket.com/albums/v...DSCN2510-1.jpg

The story

After a year thinking about rock spotting camera's. I was strolling the auto isle at Costco. when I noticed a licensed plate rear view camera. Cheapo 80 bucks. Momma just rolled her eyes. After the groceries were put away, I went to the garage Faux hooked it up, bent the bracket for the camera and double face taped it to the right side of the front bumper, aimed at the tire. I took the truck down the road and followed street cracks, with the screen
THAT WAS IT...
I located a company in Tucson called Total Vision Products. Rod and I spoke at length, about a simple four-camera rock spotting system. Three months later, the idea evolved into a Baja Camera System, which includes eight cameras, overhead console, four screens, digital switchers and a quad channel DVR with GPS Tracking. Rod designed the equipment for this system.

Camera Views Include:
Front approach & Rear Departure (wide view)
Front rock spotters, left and right tires
Rear axle camera
Roof forward facing (wide and normal view)
Rear Roof (normal view.

Driver side views will be the front approach, rear departure, rock spotters, and axle cameras. Passenger side will be all roof view cameras. The thought behind this is using the driver side screens for utility and the passenger side for trail video. Cameras selected on screens, are all recorded to a quad channel DVR. Prewire in capabilities up to eight additional cameras, with two channels of audio.

Suspension
Overland Warehouse/Radflo

http://i668.photobucket.com/albums/v...d/DSCN2824.jpg

We are using the complete 2.5 Radflo System that they have developed. The suspension is designed with the weight of my build in mind. After having three different systems on that did not perform well, I finally have the right one. It handles flawlessly and smoothly on the road. It also handles everything I throw at it off-road. System comes complete with 2.5 coilover's, 2.5 shocks, springs for rear, sway-bar relocate bracket, extended, bump stop for rear, and they added extended sway-bar link for testing. Don't count this out as a high performing system.

Gearing
East Coast Gear Supply Nitro 4.56 gear’s

After a Brief encounter with the skinny pedal, I must have chipped a gear in my stock dif. Here is the Hill where I think it happened

http://i668.photobucket.com/albums/v.../IMG_38121.jpg

Chase from ECGS helped outfit Wikid, with some new teeth. They sent out rear diff third member and front outfitted with 4.56 nitro gears, in turn I sent them the cores. I would highly recommend these guys for regearing

By the time I limped home, there were 3 teeth.. ahh missing.

http://i668.photobucket.com/albums/v...e/DSCN3224.jpg

If you have some mechanical skills or can recruit someone with those skills , you can save some $$$$ doing the switch out , yourself.

BajaRack

This is a company that truly knows how to treat customers.
I started with EXP rack and now I have changed to a utility rack. My motivation was to be able to Wikid in my garage.
35's 3" lift, 1" body lift and roof rack

Ricochet Skid Plates


http://i668.photobucket.com/albums/v...e/IMG_0245.jpg

Ricochet skid products are protecting the belly of Wikid. Brad, is excellent to work with and his skid plates are designed well. I have been abusing his skids since early 2010 with Cruise Moab, Sedona Fest, FJ Cruisers Summit and many local trails. They have been sliding rocks and still staying true to form.
Full under body skids customized with a sexy, laser cut “Wikid”
Lower control arm skids


BajaRack


http://i668.photobucket.com/albums/v...k/DSCN3588.jpg

This is a customer service oriented company that has a well designed product.
I started with the EXP rack, with a RTT. Now I have the Utility Rack, that gives me the ability to fit in my garage. I really like the new look and the construction is great. I have further plans for the rack to follow.

Doug Thorley Headers/Exhaust



Doug Thorley has outfitted Wikid, with a complete exhaust.
Long tube 304 Stainless Steel headers ceramic coated
Y-Pipe and muffler
In addition to this I had a local exhaust shop, Apache Muffler, run custom three inch tail section through the rear bumper with three inch oval tip

http://i668.photobucket.com/albums/v...t/IMG_0081.jpg

Here it is all trimmed up and done.

I'm almost done. I ripped the whole interior out.. all the way and ran a bunch of wiring under the rubber floor. Fabbed up a few boxes to house my amps, camera equipment and computer. Lost both back seats and installed the second battery behind the passenger seat. I will post a few pics of that

Bingo
I recommend everyone that brings there junk through AZ, to wheel some of the Sedona trails Specifically Broken Arrow.
It's the Iconic trail in the Sedona area. This little option, is something lots of people miss, when wheeling Broken Arrow
We usually get a crowd, from the Pink Jeep tours, to watch us crawl this notch. All of those college girls got a kick out of watching us
I have a few other pics of that same notch, going the other direction

97yota4wd 04-02-2012 01:49 PM

dam i was wrong then, would love to see more pics

wikid 04-02-2012 01:52 PM

Here is another local trail called Montana Mountain with another notch we found to play on. There were lots of broken tail lights and stuff there from others who didn't make the attempt. You will never see this spot unless you look off the trail itself. We were playing in the wash when we found this

wikid 04-02-2012 01:58 PM

here's a pic just climbing into the notch , at Broken Arrow
I was spotting a mini truck through and realized he wasn't wide enough to stay upright. so I had him back up and put one tire in and one on top and spotted him through. he was obviously wondering if he was going to flop, but all was good. He had a crawl box, so it was pretty easy to inch him through. Unfortunately, since I was spotting everyone through, I don't have any of my own pics to share

NYCO 04-02-2012 02:12 PM

nice! a buddy and i were talking not too long ago about coming down there to wheel one of these days...we'll have to add that trail to the list...looks pretty amazing down there

Montana Mountain is off the 60 on the way to Miami/Globe and left at the Queen Valley exit. Problem is... you may never find this little play area, unless you are constantly looking to the right , on the way in. I had hell finding it the last time I went. Otherwise the trial is pretty tame, unless it's snowing. The views are amazing and you get into pines near the top
Say Hi to Eric Murphy for me . He's a one of the good guys at Camelback

Greensystemsgo 04-03-2012 11:38 AM
