    If you are referring to my post, yes they are CH4x4 switches. I presently have both antennas mounted under the dash with double sided tape. I have no issue with GPS, it's the XM signal that I keep losing.

    Looks like rains have stopped for a few days here in San Diego. Decided to wash and detail before next round of rains. Also detailed engine compartment. Finally installed a custom made heat blanket that I had one of my vendors make for me (note sample?). One of the perks of running the purchasing department for the ship yard I work for. Don’t think it does squat for performance but I think I looks cool.

    What do you use to clean/detail your rubber hoses like for the radiator? Mine have dirt stained on them from wheeling that is frustratingly stubborn to remove.

    Are you installing aftermarket or an OEM unit?

    I run a marine XM antenna for my aftermarket unit. I retain signal usually even inside parking decks lol.

    If you pop out the dome housing is it just solid metal on that bracket underneath or is there space to put a socket to tighten an antenna down?

    Believe it or not but I use this product called Awesome from the 99 Cent store ($1.00 per bottle). Deluted 50% with water. This stuff is really awesome (no pun intended). Finished off with Meguires Supreme Shine. Best two products I’ve come across.

    I bought a Toyota navigation head unit (didn't want aftermarket) and there is a solid bracket behind the dome lamp.

    It's in, light bar fits super tight for a 32".
    Purchased Amazon brackets for 27$, had to drill the holes alittle bigger for the crash bar.
    Purchased the bar for 40$, opened it up and resealed for condensation.

    All in all pretty happy for 70$ setup, now just need to wire it up

    Not Enough and it continues...
    Hope you have good luck with those. Mine have been trouble getting balanced. Replaced one that was so bad road force balancing did not help. I'm still not completely pleased.

    Clay barred, compounded, polished and waxed the neglected paint on this old girl today. I got it cheap because of then oxidation, but slowly I’m turning that around. I also fixed the overhead display while I was at it.

    The same shit everyone else has.
    Jealous. I’m waiting for it to warm up and get nice enough to do a good paint correction on my truck.
