    Those are great looking wheels - did you have to install a spacer? I was under the impression that they had too much backspace to fit by default.

    NICE !!! See people this is what I'm talking about, get outside that box of "normal" thinking & just start acting on those crazy ideas rolling around in your mellon , who knows what you'll come up with !! Those 2nd gen rims w/FJ center caps looks tight man, I really like it !!

    No spacers needed as long as you stick to 265/70/16 tires.

    5 prong trailer plug for the jet ski trailer. Might even install a brake controller later since the trailer has brakes.

    I have amber LEDs in the lower valence behind a billet insert. This is a really crappy pic but it's all I have until it gets a little darker outside.

    After making my outlets work all the time by removing the relay and adding the Jumper. I still wanted to be able to switch my outlets on and off.
    I grabbed a Hazard switch from the Junkyard, then i mounted it in a switch hole down next to the outlets. I took off the triangle logo, and marked it to say 12v. It breaks the ground to the outlets, turning them off when not in use.

    Or maybe my foglight wiring?

    Nice! I've been meaning to install a power inverter with USB power under the seat & remote mount the AC outlets & USB ports to the dash somewhere.

    I would just want it for power, mainly to charge stuff.


    Cool, I've seen that done on 2nd gens. Good idea. I have that same 5 prong plug but it's just mounted on my bumper. Not by choice though, I got it like that, I wasn't too happy about it but I wasn't going to let that stop me from buying this one.

    The only pic I have showing it.
