    I just noticed the bubble on my 2018 QI charger, was planing on taking it in a couple of weeks.

    At what point do you recommend the Switch Pro 9100? Basically how many switches/lights can the battery hold? Haha

    The unit I use connects a computer VGA cable from the 6x relay under the hood to the soft touch controller mounted near my left knee on the lower part of the dash. Therefore, only 1 cable to run from controller to switch panel.

    You'll need a way to drop it lower if you have a top. They sell one but its crazy expensive for a metal plate. I made mine with some iron strap from Home Depot.

    You dont know how bad i want a rotary phone. In my new house we have the phone plate in the kitchen that i want to cover up and dont want to use a blank plate. theres a company that still make them and they pretty much refurbish them top to bottom. ONLY thing is that i dont have a phone plan with my internet provider so it wouldnt work. Sucks

    This is a computer VGA(video) cable. You only have to route this single cable through the firewall.

    Mine came in yesterday, originally quoted 10-12 but nationwide shortages on fiberglass and the black resin for overland caps pushed it back to 16 weeks. Got it installed yesterday.D399E171-CC4A-433F-8C04-99FB7E5A36C3.jpg

    Could always get one of these and install it at another jack in the house and use the home phone through your cell phone.

    I think the last time we had a rotary phone in the house was when we still lived in Georgia. We moved when I was 7. :laugh:

    She can prescribe drugs, though. :p

    So honestly speaking I went overkill to start so I bought a Switch Pro 9100 and a PowerTrays setup right after I bought my 3rd Gen. This was mostly because I knew I was going to do a lot of wiring as this is my 2nd Tacoma and I love having lots of lighting. The tray gives the ability to add on without adding a rats nest of wiring like I did with the first Tacoma which I eventually ripped all the wiring out when I added a PowerTray to that one too. I have also since added an Off Grid Engineering dual battery setup and isolated all the accessories to the second battery.

    Here's a pic of it. Probably could have done it a bit cleaner
