    I spoke with a local wheel place about ordering a 5th KMC beadlock. They spoke with KMC who are currently out of the wheel I need and won't get more in for about a month. So I'll call back in a month and hope I can get an order placed.

    In the mean time you can scratch that itch by painting your current 4 blurple. Im pitching ideas to keep the customizing of this mild camping truck moving forwards.

    @6 gearT444E because you're a smart cookie. I know my gauge cluster has a diff lock light even though I don't have a factory locker. Do you know which pin on the back harness lights that up? I would love to wire in my ARB locker switches into the dash so I have a more obvious visual cue of my lockers being on.

    A little digging through the FSM and I figured out the pin myself. Still not 100% on if it'll illuminate if I just provide 10v-14v. Or if it's the opposite? It looks like if it's getting +12v, the light is off but if it's getting <1v, then the light illuminates. That wouldn't be hard to do. I'll have to pull the dash and see if there's a wire in that pin.

    May not even be a bulb in there. Which could be more fun for you.

    There is. I used to have an ABS kill switch wired up that activated my non existent factory diff lock, thus killing ABS. The diff lock light would illuminate on my dash.

    Hmmm, now the gears are turning a little bit. Rather than just illuminating the light on the dash, I could make it so when I flip on my locker, it actually tells the truck the "factory" diff lock is engage and it kills ABS, also illuminating the dash light.

    Good. Because some manufacturers will use the same gauge overlay and housing, but not put bulbs on the circuit board. Sometimes it's an easy upgrade. Sometimes you find out how shitty your soldering skills are.

    Are you trying to use the OEM wiring off the FJ case into your dash for the light? Just curious.

    I'll be doing that as well but that's easy for me. I'm removing the 4wd ECU and I'll just have to splice a couple of wires behind the glovebox to get those to work properly

    That what I was trying to get at. Words are not working right this morning. You might make Adam jealous.

    I even showed him what pins he needs to send power to in order to get his to work, just hasn't gotten around to it I guess.

    I'm sure he will. The electro-digicals are his thing.

    Just spent the past 6 hours installing rock lights. I’ll get some night time pics later but if you want to see placement, go peep my IG story.

    I decided to crawl under the truck and snap some pics to share. There are 12 lights, 6 on each side mirroring each other.

    I was a bit strategic in my placement. This one is angled a hair forward for approach illumination.


    16380ACE-F857-4102-963B-00F9490CCD6A.jpg


    This part of the frame has a slight upward angle to it, pointing the light towards the back of the front tire.

    A nice flat area in the center of the sliders to fill in that middle ground.

    386230EA-A0BB-4D26-8D1C-29FED3F34943.jpg


    These are angled inward a bit on the crossmember to illuminate directly under the truck.

    this part is angled towards the front of the rear tire, which also protects the light, being nice and tucked up.

    And finally, some nice axle illumination.
