    I'm moving some of this stuff forward of the tampon-a-thon that are the pages that follow



    When I got my aluminum bumper from Eric @ Relentless Fabrications , he needed to substitute a 5" ID tube for the foglights for the standard 4" tube used on the steel bumpers .

    This gave me the option of using the 5" PIAA 540 series Plasma Ion foglights rather than the 4" PIAA 510's .

    My lights finally arrived , and when they did , I found that they were slightly too big to fit in the tube , so I decided to use a router to make a bit of clearance room so that the lights wouldn't be in contact with the bumper . I managed to get some time to do this today .


    [​IMG]


    Covers removed

    [​IMG]


    They just don't quite fit

    [​IMG]


    Scalpel

    [​IMG]


    The full tube posed some problems for the router base to ride on because the light mounting tab
    was a bit higher than the edge of the tube


    [​IMG]


    I rigged up a temporary base that was notched over the tab to give a flat surface for the router


    [​IMG]


    I changed the top bearing to get the bit to remove 1/8" of material

    [​IMG]


    I sanded the rough edges with some 120 and then 240 grit

    It now fits down to the lens side screws and has almost a 1/16" of clearance all the way around


    [​IMG]


    Test fit

    [​IMG]


    Test fit , pat myself on the back


    [​IMG]






    So , because I had to remove the PIAA cages from the 540's , I thought I would try this out

    1"x1" aluminum grate

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Cut out and test fit

    [​IMG]


    Cut out and test fit with light

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Got my foglight grate welded into the bumper by my fabricator friend

    [​IMG]


    Added Wheeler's SuperBumps , front and rear

    Installed front and rear Wheeler's SuperBumps


    OEM vs Wheeler's rear

    [​IMG]

    OEM vs Wheeler's front

    [​IMG]

    OEM

    [​IMG]

    Wheeler's

    [​IMG]

    Wheeler's front

    [​IMG]

    Added the ImMrYo rear view mirror relocation bracket

    Easy install , far better visibility , I highly recommend this mod

    [​IMG]


    Relocated my horns , but it got too windy to paint the radiator today

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Yanked out the plastic inserts behind the rear seats in order to remove the cast in shelf so that I can fit a tool box back there

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    Update on my rear seat cubby storage solution

    Started with this

    [​IMG]

    Milled the upper piece , added a 5/16" stainless through bolt to register the axe handle

    [​IMG]

    Milled the lower piece , it needed to be rabbetted to span over the shelf support remnants

    [​IMG]

    I fixed these pieces through the back of the cubby inserts with #8 x 3/4" screws and fender washers

    [​IMG]

    I put the screws where I could cover them back up with the backing insulation so that they wouldn't rattle against the mounting surfaces

    [​IMG]

    That left me with this

    [​IMG]

    I built a toolbox that would fit the countour of the storage area under the axe

    Lid :

    [​IMG]

    Case :

    [​IMG]

    Tool box :

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Axe and tool box locations :

    Still waiting on Quickfists for the final axe mounts and an ARB Compact Recovery bag that fits to the left of the tool box

    [​IMG]

    Test fit

    [​IMG]

    All back together

    [​IMG]

    Got my Quickfists

    [​IMG]

    Added one Quickfist to my axe set up

    [​IMG]


    Got my ARB Compact recovery bag , fits pretty good

    There is an ARB 17500lb snatch strap inside

    [​IMG]

    Installed my sway bar relocates

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Added a Stant locking gas cap

    Decided to go ahead and build a new box with the revisions I wanted

    3/4" wider , 1/4" shorter , 3/4" narrower at the top , move the hinge location up 1" and add a shelf to hold oddball sockets ( 32mm , 35mm ) extentions and other assorted tools

    Got the case built , and the lid built today , after the glue has set up , I'll cut the opening portion of the lid out and mount the hinge

    Old prototype box on the left , new box on the right

    [​IMG]

    Finished Version 2 of my tool box

    The lid was rabbeted to accept the socket tray

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I use this Lisle 1/2" drive magnetic socket tray

    [​IMG]

    Cut off the handle , removed the through rivets and drilled it out to accept 1/4" hardware

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Used the tray as a pattern and drilled through the lid front , and attached 1/4"x 2" SS carriage bolts

    [​IMG]

    Mounted the socket tray

    [​IMG]

    Loaded it up with these tools

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Test fit #2

    [​IMG]

    Just needs a handle and some finish

    Honestly , no difference from the 4 leaf pack ( TSB pack ) ride I had before , my ride was always a touch stiff from the E-rated tires .
