    Just thinking out loud here, but wouldn't it be good to add a cup shaped washer to those bolts to protect the heads? Maybe a fender washer with a slice of thick wall pipe welded to it?

    That plate was test plate, the actual skids have counter sunk holes. And then I boosted the lip on those holes.

    Had a mounting bracket, from Paranoid Fab, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with. When I ordered it, I asked them to not cut out the holes for the switches (to give me more options)

    I had some magnets laying around (everyone loves playin with magnets). They were 1 inch round... so I drilled 1 inch holes in the bracket.

    And mounted the magnets with some automotive goop (good stuff)

    Then I cut me a piece of sheet metal and put it in the phone case of an old phone I had layin around.

    Mounted the bracket in place of the ash tray... (now where the hell am I supposed to keep my pack of smokes?)

    Then, via a bluetooth OBDii reader and the Torque App I can monitor my temps and other stuff.

    On my 4Runner, I installed an in-line switch on the blue wire that controlled the power antenna from the radio so I could raise/lower it at will. It's easy to break it when off roading.

    good idea. But my hardware so rusty. Not leaking :fingerscrossed: till I can deal with it. I know why it’s facing up to the cab. Just annoying I can’t deal with it with the pipe on the car.
