    Stuff you probably shouldn't try at home. Check build.

    Installed new OME Dakar EL095R leaf pack. I always had a 2" block and wanted to upgrade to something useful. One day I broke a leaf so it was a perfect time to upgrade!
    Installation obviously didn't go as planned... rusty bolts and cutting Ubolts. The "Toyota expert" shop I bought everything at also gave me the wrong new Ubolts... so I had to run around town on a Sunday late afternoon to find some that would fit before the stores closed. Needed to get to work on Monday. Ha!

    Now I just need to install my Trim Packer Kit.

    Cleaned up and refinished my Caliraised light bar that's hidden in my bumper.
    I also upgraded the tiny useless washers they provided. The bar kept rotating upwards and pointing to the stars.

    Hard to fit everything in a 5' box when going skiing in the mountains with 4 people in a taco.
    So I built a little rack out of wood to but stuff on. It has a bunch of tie-down points.

    Re-installed my Rokblokz mud flaps after ripping them off...
    These flaps are great but they screw into the factory plugs. Makes a very easy install but not any stronger.
    So I bolted the :censored: straight through with SS bolts.


    IMG_6416.jpg


    You can see the 3 new SS bolts and the factory plug at the top.
    IMG_6417.jpg


    Since I lost the spacers after it ripped off, I 3D printed some new ones out of PETG.
    Right: Rokblokz
    Left: 3D print

    Started my lighting project!

    Amazon / Auxbeam 8 gang switch panel system.

    Decent quality! Hopefully it holds up.

    Building my own Aux panel. Design almost complete!

    Finished up the AUX Electrical Panel!
    I decided to fab up a panel to place everything on since having a manual, there is nowhere to use the included mount.

    Here is the panel unpainted:
    MQVR6713.jpg

    IMG_6467.jpg



    Here is everything installed in the engine bay. I added 2 bus terminals that are wired in to the 60A breaker for my other accessories that I won't be running on my Switch Board. These include bed lights (switch in box), other light bar (hidden switch by shifter), etc.

    IMG_6584.jpg

    IMG_6585.jpg

    IMG_6586.jpg



    Here is everything installed inside the truck.
    I bolted the Switch Board to the headliner. I ran the 2 wires through the pillar down into the engine bay. 1 wire is for running the Switch Board, the other wire is for dimming the Switch Board. The dimmer is a momentary push button. The mount that the 8 gang Switch Board attaches to was included in the package. But I did make the mount for the push button.

    IMG_6536.jpg

    IMG_6535.jpg

    IMG_6534.jpg



    Here is the Switch Board when the ignition is on. Keep in mind I don't have any of the sticker/labels on, so the lights won't be as bright. There are 5 brightness levels.

    Full brightness:
    IMG_6588.jpg

    Lowest brightness:
    IMG_6589.jpg



    I needed to buy/add some items that weren't included in the AUX controller package. I can't complain with the price of the controller.

    Here are the items I added/needed:
    - momentary push button
    - 18 AWG wire
    - shrink tubes
    - shelf-soldering shrink tubes
    - terminal connectors

    Overall I am very satisfied with the product. The instructions that came with the package is useless, therefore you need to have some slight knowledge in automotive wiring. I am a rookie at this and I did just fine. The price is much cheaper than something like Switch-Pros or sPOD. Yes this system is not as fancy but it works for me.

    I can't wait to wire up some lights and accessories to this system!

    Just installed mine a few weeks ago. How did you wire up the momentary on switch? I was thinking add a fuse

    Not sure if you are familiar with the setup yet, but the one "plug-in" comes with a red and a white wire.
    Red wire (power up the panel) I used a fuse tap so the switches can only be used when the ignition is on. You can also connect this directly to the battery but the panel will stay on.
    White wire (dimmer) I spliced it to a negative (black wire) to the one of the push button terminals. Red wire from the other push button terminal to the battery. So when I push the button, it makes a connection and dims the switches. Does that make sense? lol

    Will do! So far everything is great with the panel and electrical.
    I just ordered my lights to wire up to this thing. I will test run everything but it will be a while before the lights are actually connected.

    I used a fuse tap with the ac fuse so it only comes on with the ignition. Just trying to figure out how to wire true white, I bought a temporary on switch as well. Which negative wire did you use?
