    I have plans for most of them:spy: Not sure what color they are technically, bright white:notsure:

    One of the rolls, the first one I bought, wasn't water proof... so I had to buy the some more... I think I will use it to light up the interior under the dash. The rest are for rock lights, bed lights, hood lights and such.

    I'll need 3 rolls huh?... I was planning on only needing two damn it... I may have to cut the two up and spread them out instead of running 1 solid strip.

    I have the vision-x tantrum rock lights, output is ok, good enough anyway. The strobe setting is cool tho, you can take the party with you wherever you go.

    yea it was interesting getting the tray in there...

    Outback proved instructions on the tray installation which was great. had to remove the power steering reservoir and relocate the hoses and reservoir to allow space for the battery. they give you a tray and new hoses. the reservoir mounts to the battery tray now.

    it's definitely a tight fit. i still have room for a compressor now on the passenger side for when i get OBA

    me either....searched the interwebz over and over and only found installed pics that were from SEMA 2012.

    so we didn't have much to go off of besides the instructions that were based off the 2012.

    swapping out the power steering hoses was a mess, but wasn't too bad.

    working in that tight of a space up there was tough tho getting the bolts all in there..had to move my ballast around a couple times til we found a good spot that worked..the new hoses had to find a good route through everything...then the rest was a lot of wiring :annoyed:

    i think i will throw some loom around the wires to hide them better and i still have to reattched the support i had on my winch solenoids..but all and all it came out pretty good.

    still trying to figure out the features the isolator and monitor have.

    DBM4 Monitor

    what else are you doing besides the front suspension rebuild?
