    Sure could, just need envelope dimensions/pictures. If anyone is interested in sending me the information necessary to design one, I would be willing to work you out a killer deal on the prototype:D

    Sure. I can get you some photos and measurements. I think the passenger side may actually work better.

    Here are some general photos now. I will PM you with some better photos later. Thanks.

    Here is the driver's side (2006 6 speed DC TRD Offroad)

    For the 09+ guys with a manual and a-trac, I modified a plate like the op is making to fit in the area with the clutch fluid res and it worked great. I hope the op can get something built to fit the newer tacos as I would be a buyer for sure! My plate is not very well done as I had to hack it to fit.

    Hmm, the driver's side is a little more crowded than I anticipated. It would be really tight with all the wires there too.

    The passenger side is much more well acquainted room wise, but then you have to run wires a lot longer. It looks like I have about the same space on my passenger side so I'll work up a template for that as well.

    How does the reservoir mount on its bracket? Does it just slide over a tab? Perhaps I could make a provision for that in panel design.

    I've got 4 aluminum panels cut and ready for drilling.

    I've come up with a new scheme for mounting the bracket as well that does not require drilling into the fender. It uses a similar bracket as the original but mounts in between the OEM fuse box mount and the fender well. Here's a rendering showing how it would look:

    EDIT: blemished panels gone

    What if you have a newer model with A-Trac, but not a manual transmission? Any fit issues? (I'd go out and pop the hood to check but my truck's at the dealership)...


    Definitely interested as I need something for my winch and PIAAs to be installed in the next month or so

    I never got the measurements I needed for the A-TRAC model. If someone wants to provide me with measurements I'd be glad to work on something. I don't think it would be convenient to run all the wires from the driver side over to the passenger's side either. But I can come up with a different pattern for that side if someone wants. Just send a PM.

    Prices are on the first page of this thread.

    I'm interested as well, do they come with the fuse block? I'm guessing no, looks like blue sea brand can you verify? Thank you.

    They are the bluesea fuse blocks.

    I might be ordering another if they fit the new 4runners.

    Sorry guys! I guess my email notifications got turned off or something. I'm still making these! I'll be replying to all the PMs I got today.

    Yes, as MrGrimm stated, I did use the Blue Sea block.

    I do have them for sale and will be replying to messages. A list of all the hardware used should be in the install thread that I linked to in the OP. Let me know if you have any other questions about it.
