    That doesn't stop me from collecting them for the sole purpose of having backups when I smash them on trails.

    I think that's got to be one of the top looking bumpers for the Tacoma.

    If it had the BSM option on it... they could not take my $$ fast enough.

    Not sure why I'm so hung up on keeping the BSM/CTA working on my truck when I know that it will crap out eventually anyways and there is no way I would pay the crazy $$ for parts or calibration afterwards...

    I've been eyeballing this bumper as it's the only one that may keep the BSM working....

    https://www.apogeeoffroad.com/shop/...er-gen3?itemId=cx2ops4zw4dg3pssxojqe2b9zhmha8

    But it does not retain the factory hitch (I like having the factory hitch so you can put a hitch skid on it,
    (why scrape up a steel bumper if you don't have to)
    and it does not have the center step area.... grrrr.

    And compared to your bumper... it looks like ass....

    I just flowed some solder to each of the spade connectors on both the wiring harness and tossed in the last 4 male spades i had onto the pod lights.
    plugged it all in and it worked like an absolute charm. Though, going to have to figure out the correct programing for the rearview mirror/ garage opener system as i only took about 5 minutes to look into programming, that's a project for tomorrow.

    Reason i ask about how you have your external fuse box setup is that now that i have 2 sets of lights; Front light bar and the pod lights which i plan on using as rear firing work lights also to blind people who leave their high beams on and are riding my ass. So Figured that it's best to set up a fuse panel for potentially everything i might add onto the truck; light bar front, pods rearward, pods forward?, Power inverter inside the cab for charging a laptop and whatever else, probably a connection for a fridge of sorts, etc etc as the list can go on till i need to consider dual battery setups...

    but might as well start with not building a rats nest and do things more or less right. This is where my PC side comes into play :D I cannot stand messy cable management.
    photo from a few years back, it's gotten better since but it's whats i'm fine with.
    IMG_20180421_155308.jpg

    AAAAAAAANYWAYS

    I'm staying away from the switch-pro button system stuff, i'm fine with swapping out fuses if i blow them out if something is to happen, I have a small bag somewhere in the basement, and wiring up buttons to whatever i might need. More or less analog over digital?

    The power tray was something i was thinking of building from scratch since there are a lot of examples of it, I have some sheet metal around the house, an angle grinder, and some sanity, All i would need is a template and a guide...
    But it's good to know there is someone selling them premade (at least the mounting bit). $85 USD seems pretty reasonable for the material, cutting, bending, cut placement, pre drilled holes, and finish. I'll consider it once i cut my hand off the sheet metal
    :fingerscrossed:

    That Blue Sea block you posted was the exact same one i was looking at earlier, I was also thinking of running it inline with a 100 amp circuit breaker. One flick and all external accessories are off.
    Might do 2 breakers incase i want to kill everything but the inverter and fridge. So might as well order one of those now then :fistbump:

    oh man im in the same boat. Want a rear bumper bad but don't really want to loose the bsm if I already have. Maybe eventually someone will get it figured but not looking like that anytime soon

    Yeah the switch pod things are way overpriced for what they are.... I did it that way just to save time for myself.

    If I had known that this Covid thing would give me free time I would have gone with relays and buttons with the blue sea fuse block for more bragging rights and OCD time making wiring harnesses. and saved almost a grand.
    I find it relaxing crimping on terminals and making harnesses look OEM.

    I still would have bought the power tray as it would have taken me over 10 hrs to design, cut and bend something similar and it probably would not have come out as nice. If you want to make your own and want to take measurements off mine give me a shout.

    Good idea for the breaker.... always a good idea to put a fuse or a breaker as close to the power source as possible. People forget that wires rub and fray... More vehicles get burnt up because someone put the fuse close to whatever they were powering and left the wire unprotected running from the battery.

    Your computer anal ocd days are really going to pay off for Automotive wiring, will be better than dealer done.

    Yep been eyeballing those....

    But not quite as nice looking as Pete's,

    and look at the price....:bananadead:
    lol and it will be shipping from California.... :spending:

    I really want the CTA for when I'm backing out of alleyways or between two panel vans etc.

    But I see that there are gadgets out there for switching between camera sources for the Tacoma (I just bought one that adds a front camera and selects between front and back with a touch of a button). I'm hoping I could change the gadget that divided the two cameras into 4 (I think I saw that there was a 6 camera one out there someplace) sooooo...

    If I switch the "divider" to a 4 camera one, and then drill holes in the corners of Pete's bumper I could have a Cross Traffic Camera system....

    Win Win Win Win situation.... Bye Bye BSM. hello sexy bumper....

    Hmmm Beatsonic has a 6 Camera selector module...

    https://www.beatsonicusa.com/stereo...onic-avs1-automatic-audio-video-selector.html

    [​IMG]
    I wonder if I can just swap out the two camera selector that comes with the front camera kit with no muss or fuss...

    Mount this connector block somewhere in the engine compartment so it's easy to add cameras....

    Front, Back, Left and Right rear sideways and two open spots...

    Hmmm Meso and somebody else made some pieces for under the front mirrors for puddle lights or cameras... oh this could be fun...

    Uh Oh @pete37 we may be bumper brothers soon....

    I'm really digging the CTC idea.... much better than CTA and everything (bumper cameras etc) would be cheaper than just replacing the BSM sensors out of warranty, let alone the OEM facia thing that would blow apart at 3km/r impact with a pumpkin.

    More googling for parts....

    Oh if an angry Chinese lady calls your store ranting on about her husband spending money on his truck and working on it instead of her kitchen...

    My truck also falls under the recall for the frame. They checked it out during my last service and told me that they will not be applying the coating. They are only going to plug some of the unused holes with stickers.

    What is the CKP recall? I'm not aware of any other recalls for my truck.

    Well throwing money at this project and gonna see what sticks.

    Terminal fuse block and fuses for an absolute fail safe
    2 breakers (1x 100A, 1x 150A)
    the fancy split blue sea fuse block (where it's 2 groups of 6, that way each group has its own breaker)

    I'll take some measurements for the power tray, but knowing myself i'll just buy the damned thing to not need to dick around more than i already am.

    Yeah I got the one from beatsonic as it had all the jumper cables for the stereo so no wire splicing... and it comes with the button too..

    Then I got this camera as it looks like it will just clip onto the pro grill easy...

    Modified the level of gas in the tank
    Crankshaft position sensor...your 17 is likely outside that recall.

    I don't care if they apply the rust fixer or not, as long as I get certified for the extended frame warranty...I krown mine every year and touch up myself at service intervals.

    Main point, driving a rental tundy...not like I stole it, but like I know a guy who stole it and is gonna let me go for an extended spin. Like a responsible adult...of course
