    That's exactly how mine was when my plug was burning up, just open the passenger door and look up under the dash and look at the wires there should be a white wire that's probably turning brown by now, if you pull the plug and look at the ends of it you can see that the Spade connectors will be discolored from heat as well as the plug may be slightly melted this was the case with mine.

    If you search on here for melted blower motor plug you should encounter plenty of posts about it it's a relatively common thing

    Just checked the wires and connectors look fine, no melting or discoloration.

    Unnecessary, you can get a ram ball with the appropriate threaded base and or allen headed bolt through it, it's the same end but a little cleaner looking IMHO.

    Can't go wrong with the techdeck. It was the first thing I added and love it.

    They're nice, I have my camera monitor mounted to it, it can kinda block the AC controls a little but it's not really an issue, there's a guy who makes something similar that doesn't have the shelf it's just ram balls on either end of the AC controls but I like the tech deck heavy duty as it's 8n double sheer plus has extra screws going up into the bottom of the radio surround, it's much more supported.

    If you're only mounting a phone or small GPS and mostly street then the pretty little side mounts are great but if you like to wheel hard and fast I would go with the heavier duty tech deck like that.

    There's also the (weird acronym like TPAM or something) mount but it sits on top of the dash and I already have something mounted there I am unwilling to relocate.

    You can kinda see my actual phone mount to the top left there.

    I also have the birddawg industries mirror riser with ram ball for my go-pro, slightly "moded" to mount my compass/thermometer mirror pod and to support it more as otherwise it's too much weight and will fall off (and sometimes take some of the windshield with it.)

    I know, I noticed after I posted the picture and though, “Wow, that is cool looking”. The springs, shocks, control arms, etc was all replaced like 2 months ago.

    Yes but you need the clock piece as it's different too, also I believe the 4wd selector is different.

    Toyota is the only place to get it AFAIK.

    I did that but with the twist I wanted it did not work. Held the x mount too far from dash and too far towards window. Thus a bracket was needed.
