    You know it just rattled around (poorly packed?) until it just busted that box open.

    Hooked up a FAT32 500GB SSD to USB port below the radio with same mp3 files I have on my normal stick and it recognized it and began playing the songs. I do not have an SSD bigger than 500GB to test.
    May try a 3TB HDD at a later date. But, I will need 120V for that to spin up in the USB case I can use for it. Luckily I park next to an outlet. Just gotta get time to format and such.

    Just thinking out loud;
    Don't really know the practical use in the truck for that much mp3 storage (500GB = ~100,000+ songs) and would need somewhere to mount the SSD out of sight plus, hook into the USB without the cord sticking out. Now if you had a head unit capable of playing mp4 or mkv or avi movie files, then that would be practical to entertain the passengers during a long drive.

    He said cost was 110 Plus time. Cost to me means if you bought the material and did it yourself but if you have someone else provide then markup… let’s say 15$. Not sure how much shipping is but let’s guess 30ish. Wear and tear machine/router/bits (overhead)… let’s say 5$. Can’t forget about time because nobody wants to work for free- guessing an hr at a min 25$. Those numbers seem conservative to me and we’re at 185… but doesn’t smart business practices add a bit for profit/growth or should that be part of any of the numbers I mentioned above?

    so IMO 150-175 isn’t even close to a nice profit if even breaking even and time is given for free.

    I used these. Much brighter. And white light instead of yellow. Comes with all interior as well as license plate lights. The license plate bulbs were the only ones that gave me trouble.

    How do you like that WaterPort Weekender? I've been thinking of purchasing one, but haven't seen a lot of good reviews about it. Any regrets on purchasing?

    Little video of the flip up license plate bracket I made for my Coastal rear bumper, used light up led bolts for the license plate lights.

    Installed DDI Front Seat Jackers on the driver’s side. They definitely change the seat positioning. You sit up enough where you feel like you’re actually in a truck. Can’t wait to see how it feels on a long trip.

    They do close the gap a small amount, for me the big increase in comfort negates the minor inconvenience.

    Without the seat jackers there was no support for my thighs, it felt like all my weight was on the bones in my butt and my heels, my leg muscles were always engaged. After an hour or so I would become achy and be shifting around in the seat. With the jackers (front only) I can drive several hours comfortably now. The parts are beautifully made as well.

    I am installing a anytime back up camera (front camera) and I am almost done. The thing I am stuck on now is getting the illumination circuit connected to the anytime switch that I am installing where the BSM switch (was/is). I was thinking to tap into the wires already existing on the BSM switch wiring but I cannot tell which wires are the ones I need to tap into. The wires are grey, tan, green, pink and yellow. I need to know which one is the positive and which is negative for the illumination circuit. Does anyone know the answer or where I can find it? Thank you.

    I ended up just tapping into the main fuse box and pulling wire into the cab. Actually realized after I did all that, that it would probably be better if I did it from the internal fuse box but I will change that another day. So it works great now.

    Here’s some pics of the install.

    Video of the cut


    Shout out to my old man for helping me get the bumper on the truck. I’ll take better pics in the sun tomorrow.
