    Not quite sure what you mean by "flush". At least 1/3 of each plug has to be available to connect together.
    I routed mine out of the front with enough lead to allow a portable winch (inserted into the front hitch) to be connected. When not in use, the plug is secured flat against the grill.
    I simply remove the pin to free the plug to reach the winch, when needed.
    (I have an in-line switch so that no one can short out my battery by jumping across the plug connectors.)
    But flat against the grill is prolly not what you meant by flush.

    The first pic looks like every project I have worked on….just dump every tool I own in a pile and get started. If not then by the time I finish I will have every tool I own in a pile. Lol

    I want to mount one on my rear bumper or side of the front bumper so I can more easily jump start (others). So I'm looking for something like this: [​IMG]
    But I cannot seem to find any in larger than SB50 sizes - which I feel is too small to handle jump loads.

    I finally got my "recent" interior mods finished!

    Not that I need them yet, but I finally got my Due Bill fulfilled by the dealership for my heated seats install. They worked with me, as they initially wanted to install those cheesy round button on the seats, but I said no, I want factory-looking switched installed in the overhead. I supplied the Shapeways overhead switch panel for them, and they did the rest! Super happy with the results.

    Finally got the Joying head unit fully working with my 2021; steering wheel controls, rear camera, powered sub, GPS, everything!! I love this thing, it blows the stock Entune out of the water.

    Installed the Alpine PWE-S8 powered sub behind the driver's side rear passenger seat. First time doing this, and it really wasn't bad. Gives me the extra bit of bass that I need on top of the Kicker speakers.

    And lastly, no more chrome Toyota emblem blinding me. Plus it gives my truck that little bit of green it was missing.

    Can you share some details on what the wiring of the sub was like? Specifically connecting to the head unit.

    I got some pointers from @5nahalf on how-to, but I basically just ran the RCAs from the sub to the HU, then used a 2-to-1 adapter since I only had one RCA input on the HU (like $10 at Besy Buy). Then ran the blue remote turn on wire up to the HU as well, and used a T tap to splice into the blue wire on the radio harness. The hardest part was running the power wire through the rubber grommet in the firewall from the battery to inside the cab - it was a bitch for me. But once I did that, I ran it to the sub harness, and just drilled a hole into some metal (you can see this in the pic) using a self-tapping screw for the ground wire. I ran the RCA and blue wire on one side of the truck using the channels on the floor, and the power and sub control knob on the other side of the truck, to avoid interference.

    It took me about 2 hours to get it all done, which would've been fine if not for the fact that it was 101 outside.

    Installed OEM Bed lights, interior and license plate LED's, and the new bed mat earlier.

    Still have RC seat covers for the rear's coming, and plenty of other things on the short list.
