    And to round out the day, I added interior trim and hood scoop accents in Army Green from @TUFSKINZ . Easy install and a nice way to break up the lines a bit. I found that I needed to pull the hood scoop to apply those pieces - easy process except for the retaining clip that holds the back section of the scoop cover in place. You need to get both sides of the clip pushed in and then push up - took me a few tries to get it right.

    So when we take my Father in law out with us, he likes to rest his arm on the armrest on the passenger rear door which I get. But there is a squeak/rattle that occurs when he does that. He doesn't hear well so I doubt he hears it but it drives me absolutely crazy while he is in the back seat. I just went outside and slightly pushed it in and out near the front of the armrest and it makes that sound. Has anyone had this issue and have any type of solution I could try?

    Have him sit on the other side? (Just kidding, hope you find a solution)

    There is also powerwerks. I started looking into the blue seas panel but then found the other and they have a variety of voltmeter sockets/plugs/etc at a cheaper rate. They have similar panel options etc. I’m still undecided on which route I’m going but figured I’d let you know options

    If the squeak is by the window controls/armrest- pull the window control panel up and lay foam against the backside of the door panel where these 2 parts are closest. I haven’t done it yet but my drivers door started making noise and only when my leg is against it. Others have mentioned the foam as a fix. Now if your anything like me that will lead you down another rabbit hole on best foam for use (open/closed cell is probably the main factor to consider) it’s crazy at all the available options

    You could also buy the arb frig harness (it’s 20’ 10awg 2conductor/bonded and fused). I put it in split for added protection too and disclaimer- i was short 3-4’ to reach passenger box. But it’s an option for a pre made harness and it doesn’t have to be used for only a frig

    Thanks. The actual sound is coming right at the tip of my finger. But I can push anywhere on the armrest or the door panel and the sound comes from that one area.

    I had 25' of wire and loom and only cut off about 1 inch. So I would say your measurement would be accurate.

    Does that intake use the original inlet from the fender as well as the front facing one? I always thought it would be great if someone made a kit to use the scoop to actually get air into the box.

    Foam will be your answer imo- likely closed foam because it’s more firm (higher density or is it the other way).
