    Love your setup! What rack/ tent combo are you running? I notice the rack works with your tonneau cover which is something I am looking for.

    I’m working on it. But it’s only 7:30 here and the sky is still well lit. It is foggy though…

    I’m curious. What are the lights and the light mounts that you used?

    Sdhq off-road btg mount
    Top is 30” amber baja designs combo light
    Bottom is 5 separate lights wired as 3 units. All Baja designs as well. Squadron s1. I mounted those on an aluminum extruded bar. Pattern is
    Spot, wide (amber), work, wide (amber), spot
    The switches are wired so the bar is independent, the wides are wired together , spots are together and the work separate.

    I finally added my matching headlight trim pieces to my truck. I had these sitting around for about 3 years!!!

    @MESO did a great job with these

    I also got a windshield sun shade. I wish all installs are this easy!

    Yea I know. When I catch up on the thread I comment as I go per page and I didn’t feel like deleting before clicking post. Plus it took me a good minute before I remembered his user name… couldn’t let that go to waste!

    Looks nice. I have a set of those. Today I even had my grill off, I just didn’t have it in me to mess with the bumper at all. I was stoked that I changed my fairlead
    Without removing the whole bumper, just got the valance off. So my meso pieces will probably sit for a while. Also finished all my wiring and connected the winch with a switch, in addition to the under seat air compressor.

    That’s why I waited so long to do it. I didn’t want to drop the bumper.
    I didn’t have to though. I just loosened it and pushed it down enough to remove the old ones and install the new ones. Took about 40 minutes with a break in between the two. It’s 100 degrees out here.

    I wasn’t a fan of how chunky the AJT key fob is either but I like having one set of keys that have the physical key. I just swapped my AJT over to a YotaMD key fob: https://www.yotamd.com/collections/key-fob-cases/products/ymd3-titanium-banded-remote-kit-3-button

    F6355A50-0CBC-45D4-A2A0-BAD8FEFF78BF.jpg

    I might anodize the Titanium band blue or gold. I wanted to get it together to see what I thought first.

    I like the 2nd fob you got. A bit pricey tho.

    On a somewhat related note: anyone know where to get some OEM fob buttons? I have an ATJ fob as a extra but in the process of moving last year, my OEM fob and key pads got lost.

    AJT and the YotaMD both use OEM buttons so if you have your AJT complete, they are IN there.

    The bumper and fender clip was the hardest part for me when I first did it because I wasn’t sure how exactly it snapped in even after watching the videos. After trying to fix a loose bumper after a dealer visit i was able to find out how it clipped. So this is after you pulled the fender flare away from the fender/bumper… then you have to pull the bumper from the fender. There are 3 tabs you’ll have to lift up with a plastic pry tool to release the bumper (left/center/right). The left tab is positioned behind the flare, the right is closest to headlight and the center of those. Pull back as you lift each tab starting from left to right and when fully un clipped just pull forward enough to see the screw. Hope this helps

    Wanted to say thanks, looks like I’ll be getting one more “mod” completed before we leave Texas - I ordered through Etsy. The owner of the shop was very nice, responded to my question quickly and even adjusted the shipping address after Apple Pay decided not to give me any say on that.

    For the record: Dark Metallic Red is the color best matching Barcelona Red according to seller.

    did you follow any specific set of instructions for this? I found the USB panel from Blue Sea; I’d be very interested in doing this eventually.
