    Amsoil is an actual oil you use. They also have filters that filter down to like 10 micros (IIRC it's 10 micros...been a while since I read up on them). Standard OEM filter are like 50 microns. Anyway...you can do extended oil changes...like once a years or up to 25,000 miles! Which is what I do in my diesel! Here's a link: http://info.amsoil.com/muscle-thank-you?submissionGuid=67150cec-d214-4b6d-8926-5fd67711d546

    When I pulled my valve covers off my Toy with 175,000 miles on it...like brand new! No slugg at all...

    Before I headed off to the hospital to get curved up...I did get I little bit done inside the cab. Here's a picture of my switches. Otrattw.net does an awesome job making these switches. Can not say enough good things about Jim or his business!!

    image.jpg

    Took my old OEM CD player out (note to self: take out any CD's that were left inside the CD player.)...too include the crap factory amp. Once I got everything out...there was a decent amount of room in behind the panel. So, I ran my wires up and out where the CD player was. I went ahead and got all my wires solder together and shrink wrapped.

    image.jpg


    I wasn't really done with them...so then kinda just struck them in the hole just so I could get a jest as to see what they would look like. I'm frik'n loving the look!
    image.jpg

    The only thing I'm not excited about is where I place my Bussman relay box. Not sure if I'm leaving it here or if im going to move it. There just isn't much room under the hood of my 4Runner! I see other guys put frik'n Volkswagens under their hoods...not me! Oh well...we'll see how things go...

    Thanks @RedRunner87 for the kind words. Surgery part...we're healing. Should be on my feet by end of the week. As far as the 4Runner...I have to admit....the idea for the look came from our beloved hero: @ramonortiz55!! He hooked me up with @paranoid56 who makes and sales the switch holder.

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/6-switch-plate-under-radio-location.315089/

    I was just getting ready to buy a GPS Kenwood double din. Glad I held off...so instead I bought a single din Kenwood and these switches...couldn't be happier!! The only problem now, is I need room for 4-5 more switches!!! I've gone switch happy!! Come on @ramonortiz55...I need some help with another switch holder maybe were our sunglasses holder is??

    LOL

    I like how you have your inner and outer roof lights on different circuits.

    On that second picture, what's that wand thing in the middle of the picture? your switchbacks are on it..

    You have electric operated fans?

    Hmmm....

    Dude.. if you can find another place to put switches, I will love you forever.....

    I really like where you put that relay/fuse box. Makes me want to move mine to make room where I currently have it. Did you just use self tapping screws or rivets? How do you know there's nothing youd drill into?

    Lets head out there. You can take the supercharger, and I will take the roofrack :stirthepot::sawzall:


    That's a clean runner dude! MAN! how do you like the tires? I need new tires.. thinking about doing 255s..
    :sawzall::sawzall::sawzall: lets head out @RedRunner87
