    Now I need to figure out where to install a Blue Sea fuse block and a couple circuit breakers, damn supercharger intercooler reservoir is in the way.

    The lights look good. I'll eventually add a few bed and rock lights.

    If you can't find a better spot, what about mounting the aux fuse box on top of the OEM box? As long as you route the new wires to allow moving the aux box to access the OEM box, that may work. Have to check hood clearance, of course.

    The bed lights have been one of my favorite mods so far.

    I like the idea of mounting it to the OEM box, don't know if it'll be a large enough footprint though. Have the 12 slot fuse block and 2 circuit breakers to mount. Guess I'll have to wait for all the stuff to show up and play around with it.

    Guess I could mount the plate to the OEM lid for a larger area as well.

    I'm sure you'll find a good spot once you have it in hand. If you do try the OEM box lid, nylon fasteners might be useful to insulate it.

    Do you have an empty spot with a bracket over the passenger fender area, next to the firewall? Seems like a good place.

    Was definitely going to do nylon fasteners or at least so sort of coating on metal fasteners.

    Thought about putting it over there but all the damn brake lines and ABS stuff is there. Not only that but have to make longer wire runs.

    I've got an OR with a lot of room there. I couldn't remember how much space was left after the ABS pump was installed.

    My OTRATW switch came in yesterday so I got that installed for the rock lights and tied it to the dome light. So in one position it comes on with the dome light and the other position it's always on.

    Also wired my Ultra Gauge behind the A-Pillar trim while I was in there tapping into the dome light wire.

    It's a noticeable difference but couldn't give you exact numbers as I didn't run it before and after on a strip.

    Made a cardboard template today but the only usable space was around the fuse block. Still need to figure out where to mount my circuit breakers.

    Lost track many, many mods ago.
    That is one clean truck! Looks great. Can't wait to see the updated pics with the bumper.

    Thanks, bumper won't be on till Mid-April. Had it shipped to FL so I can put it on when I go down for a few days.

    And you guys with these trailer builds keep making me want one. Although I'm leaning towards making a custom trailer from scratch. That will be a 2014 or later project though.
