    I'll take a picture and post it in a little, I got them at Napa though.

    it looks like that switch only has one terminal, how would it be connected to turn the lights on and off? im not an electrical surgeon:D

    I used the same switch. The terminal on the bottom is for the negative. Positive goes to battery. It gets grounded when you bolt it in. When the hood is open and the switch pops up, the circuit is completed. When you close the hood, the pin pushes down and opens the circuit and lights turn off.

    Here's a little mod I did. Maybe already done before. I bought one of those phone holders that clip on to the air vent for like $5 or something. Obviously didn't work especially when I clipped my heavy iPhone Plus to it. So I removed the backing which was held on by a screw. Drilled a small hole in the front center cluster panel and screwed the holder in place. Works great.

    Your lift and wheel set up are exactly what I want for my new (to me) 2004 4X4. Would you mind sharing your parts list with me? Thanks :bowdown:

    I'll need to modify the brackets a little and switch out the buckles but they fit great otherwise.

    They do look nice. Hope you make it work.

    I have been wondering if a set of second row seats from a Sienna would work. The type that fold flat and then tumble forward. It would be nice for rear seat area access to have a seat that folded flat forward. I'm going to look at some in salvage yard this Spring and see if it looks feasible. They are "striker" mounted and removable too. You can see the stikers peaking out of the carpet. You pull a lever and just lift the seat out of the vehicle.

    I'd have to combine the two type of attachment systems or they would not slide adjust for leg position. That would be the task.
    I wish @BartMaster1234 would go ahead and try it first so I'd know how difficult it would be...:fingerscrossed:

    These seats are out of an 04'

    They don't necessarily bolt right up, I'll be fabricating tabs to relocate 2 of the 4 bolt holes. There's a slight mismatch in the front 2 bolts. It looks super easy and I'll definitely post them here when/if they get done

    These seats mounts are nearly identical to Toyota, so I won't need a bracket, I'll be extending the front 2 with 1/8 plate.

    The issue here are the anchor points. They’re recessed into the floor. I don’t know how secure you can possible make it.

    I wouldn’t trust it.
