    For obvious reasons the door lock circuit is always hot so this could be a legitimate concern.

    Made some "custom" center caps for my @FNwheels / Konig Countersteer Type X, thanks @InfernoTRDPro for cutting up the vinyl for me! Used the matte bronze center caps with matte black overlays with the TRD cut out to get a perfect color match.

    3" OME lift, Brute Force Fab front & rear bumpers, Dura-trac tires.
    Replaced the upper and lower control arms and sway bar links on my 09 Tacoma. I went with JBA Offroad for the upper arms and Toyota original for the lower arms. As planned, I had to cut out the sleeves in each of the front bushing lower arm as there were seized in place. Also ended up have to replace the sway bar links as they were fully seized and had to be cut out. I should of done the upper arms back in '16when I installed the 2.5" OME lift. Finally got tired of the sight pull to the left that couldn't be aligned out.

    i've been looking for a while (years?) and it simply doesn't exist. i've also been looking for individual auto switches to try to retrofit but for some reason these things are harder to find than illegal drugs.

    there are some jdm/uk RHD units with the auto switch on the right, i might try that next just to get the damn switch cap and relay.

    lol look at this... they even sell them both in the same listing. you would think some enterprising person overseas would get the bright idea to design a dual auto and sell it for 50 bucks...

    Swapped out the clear lens for amber lens today on my S2 Sports. They look cool, but not sure if I'll keep them amber or switch back to clear. I just wanted to try something different. They do match up with my amber DD fogs nicely though.

    Figuring out how to pull out the pins was the hardest, but it works. Re-pin 2011 harness to 2012-2015. Passenger side next.

    Damn, that is sweet! I've been running around capless because I just needed to break up all that bronze. Couldn't come up with any kind of idea for a center cap that was different. Never thought about reversing things. Great idea.

    minor tweaks
    I tried out a large Plano plastic bin for storing stuff in my DCSB, to me the shape of the bin causes allot of wasted space. I decided to build something in that will hold most of the stuff I carry like tools, bottle jack, bow saw, axe, compressor, recovery gear (except traction boards) and the other spares (hitch, belty) etc that I lug around in the truck.

    Started out with some 3/4" plywood cut to fit in between wheel wells.
    [​IMG]
    When done it's 2 pieces, a base and a deck with a access door.
    [​IMG]

    The whole assy is pulled down and forward with some turnbuckles. I'm waiting on different mounts for some gas struts. The door will stay open when leaned against the front of the bed.
    [​IMG]

    All the stuff I carried Plano case and under the the truck's back seat fits into this area.

    [​IMG]

    Door stays closed with a lockable slam latch.
    [​IMG]

    Pretty happy with the way it turned out, I ended up with more storage room then with the Plano case and the bed is more usable with better load holding and gear carrying options for stuff like tents and sleeping bags.

    Really nice work. Putting those turnbuckles inside was a good idea.
