    STOCK
    Brainstorming here ... My suggestion? Base device with MODULAR components... Swap-able plates for various components for users to customize.



    -Blank Plates
    to Mod yourself
    (simple design)

    -Switch Pro Plate
    [​IMG]

    -SPOD Touchscreen Plate
    [​IMG]

    -Radio CB & HAM Faceplate
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    -Ultraguage Plate
    411088d1453290535-scan-gauge-ultra-gauge_7c6d6e37cfdf30f796904e8a1340fd17d7a8053b.jpg

    -Scanguage Plate
    [​IMG]


    -IPhone / Ipod Mounting Plate
    (touch / switch / blutooth / app interface / Rally timer, ETC -- unlimited possibilities with this really)
    [​IMG]

    https://www.highwaydirtbikes.com/in...ne4_Case&sid=u416q3bo623p1i3sf743685678335k85


    -Dual Guage Pods Plate
    (Better than using the A-pilar due to visibility concerns) Options to use OBD2 Digital Gauges as well.
    [​IMG]


    -Ram Ball Plate
    [​IMG]

    -Standard Switch Plate
    [​IMG]



    Lights?

    Use rock lights instead of the stock lights.
    [​IMG]

    Or offer it as a modular plate option where you can have the "stock" lighting plate or the rock lights...

    A full length overhead console option for a Double Cab would be amazing.....

    Other things to consider consider or incorporate into it.

    (Dreaming here lol)
    -Drop down pistol locker ( Thumb dial lock, key lock, or even fingerprint?).
    -Long Arms mounts.
    -Dual CB and HAM holders plugs for mouth peices
    -Sunglasses clips (for aviators)
    -Map slot

    If designed correctly, the possibilities could be endless. it should be very close to being compatible with all 3rd Gens as well (without a sunroof).


    I'm down for crowdfunding anything even remotely close to this.

    Interested as long as I don't get head trauma climbing in. I have nailed my head a couple of times on the sunglasses holder that was left open.

    I place for a radio would be great.

    I found myself wondering the same thing while little birds flew around my head. I'm only 6' tall, so it's not a giant problem.

    Bump for any updates? I always revolve back to needing more space....

    A CB/radio fixture to start would be cool. You can put me down as purchased if you want to do that one first.. :D

    has anyone tried making these and selling them or are we looking at mostly one-offs from people doing custom jobs?

    i was going to put locker switches on the shift console but the roof would be a much better location. i may just get the OTTRATW panel and stick it in the forward sunglasses compartment as others have done.

    One-offs, pretty much. You get out, what you put in, no way i could economically build this for other people (even if they wanted it), stupid money spent already... i've been working on mine for going on a damn year, on and off.. final wiring to do yet, but soon..

    Then, maybe i'll get around to that damn wall-paper... :D
