    Hi, @inv3ctiv3 unless I missed it you didn’t mention why you switched from an electric pump for OBW to the air pressurized WaterPort? Could you elaborate, and how do you like the WaterPort? It’s portability, mounting options look pretty good to me and the price isn’t bad vs DIY considering the brackets, nozzle etc. Thanks in advance.

    Because the pumps kept failing so I wanted something simple and not tied into the truck so I got the WP. I love it, wish it held more water sometimes burn it’s been awesome.

    Been doing a lot of maintenance on the truck so the camper is off so I can reseal the KB Voodoo rails (I didn't do this before installing the camper and you really need to).
    So I bought some Butyl Tape and Aluminum tape and got to work sealing up old holes I'd drilled for old mods and also removed my ATH bed stiffeners in favor fo the Total Chaos ones.

    The bed was in dire need of some work after removing my old dual battery set up which needed to have multiple holes drilled in the bed....

    The bed bolts had backed out as well.

    Old set up:

    New set up (Huge thanks to Matt @ Off the grid engineering, odyssey batteries, Slee Offroad and Power trays!)

    [​IMG]

    Starting from scratch on wiring and mounting so I removed everything:

    Another small project I've been working on is creating a "front end emergency bolt kit" so I bought a bunch of toyota bolts from the front end that are commonly broken/back out:

    [​IMG]

    I also got a SafeJack for Christmas (5 ton with all the attachments, I think it was "The Sergeant") so I put it where the stock bottle jack was and moved that over as a just in case jack (I also carry a pro-eagle).

    I'll update the thread as I get the whole new compressor/battery set up in and also maybe some new tires and rims....

    Any particular reason why you swapped out the ATH bed stiffeners to TC? Curious if you found some flaw or reason to favor one over the other.

    The TC ones extend all the way up to the two 10mm bolts at the top of the bed where the ATH don't and when I installed them they actually pulled my bed in more so I was happy.

    My whole truck is like that right now, hosed out the back of the back of the camper and ended up driving with the back hatch open on my friends ranch carrying some shit. But the kb voodoo bed caps were leaking like a civ cause I never sealed them before putting the gfc on due to time restraints. But now they’ll be sealed right

    Did you seal you bed cubbies yet? A tailgate seal will help too

    Tailgate and cubbies have been sealed forever, the issue was driving with the hatch open and the bed caps

    Hi @Jim Bob, did you use anything to level out the front bed rail with the KBVoodoo side caps? Or does the bulb seal for the GFC fill the gap well enough? Trying to get prepped as best I can before I go pick mine up. Thanks in advance!

    It's pretty level I don't remember there being a huge gap but with the bulb seal from GFC it sealed up perfectly just make sure you seal under the KB Voodoo caps before you install.

    Awesome, thanks! I sealed the caps up already and I plan on filling the gaps at the bed corners as well. Appreciate it!

    This a very quick and easy trail fix, I don't why anyone who wouldn't want to carry a spare wheel cylinder and a rear brake shoe spring hardware kit in the spare parts box. Especially with how common this issue is, both are inexpensive and easy to obtain.

    Yea I agree now I carry two but Alex and Jena were able to tow me back and I fixed it in the driveway so it wasn't a huge issue besides it drained the system almost immediately and the entire brake system went dry. You can ask Alex about it.

    Time to rename the thread since you changed your user name.
