I do not have a tiny violin, sorry. LOLI feel your pain...what a can of worms.
I have some similar (can of worms projects) haunting me.
A 9500 lb winch sitting on my work bench waiting to be installed in a (already mounted on my truck) Shrockworks bumper....where to mount winch control pack , re-locating winch remote plug , do I need a new more powerful battery to run the winch .....ect.....
Then figure out CB radio and Ham radio.
Do you have a tiny violin to play me a sad song?
I would suggest (you probably know this but) painting the brackets with self etching primer then paint with some VHT spray paint.
Edit ...Sorry Jen
Hey man, when you get that urge to eat some shabu shabu, you know what that means. ::grin::That is a weird place to be mounting your spare can of butane fuel. ::wink:: I have one of those (Asian Supermarket Butane) stoves too. Use it for all kinds of thing.
When the backup signal goes on (shifter in "R") the OEM tailgate camera always shows on the head unit screen first, because that's the primary camera. However I just have to tap the screen once and the view will change to the "Shuttle" camera instantly. If I really wanted the Shuttle camera to pop up first on the head unit screen whenever I put the shifter into "R" I would just swap the two video input RCA cables at the back of the head unit.Can your setup be switched so that either camera comes on with the backup signal or is it set to only one or the other? Looks great!!!!
Yessir. The camera function doesn't interrupt anything - it just puts the camera(s) picture on the screen under two conditions:Nice mod!
Is your HU functional while using the cameras? IE - Can you listen to music or make/accept a call while in camera mode?
(Pardon if this was already covered.)
The Morimotos are a definite upgrade from stock, simply by the fact that they're LED vs halogen with the correct lenses. As for the Rigid D2s, my observations so far:What's your thoughts compared to the Morimotos? I do like my morimotos over the OEM fogs, but, is the extra cost on the Rigids worth their price?
As requested - some photos showing the D-Series LED driving lamps' output:Let\s see some night pics, please.
Nice. With all the electronics upgrade, did you do the big3 or is that the only ground wire you upgraded?During an air filter change as part of regular maintenance I stumbled upon this:
Thinnest ground wire ever.
No problem, I had some extra 4-gauge power cable from my amplifier install, so I bought some ring terminals and made this:
New ground cable up top, OEM wire on the bottom. Big difference!
...and installed it. Took all but 5 minutes after the soldering iron was hot. Now the engine block has a much better ground:
Proper ground cable.
Nice job man! I get some speaker noise with engine acceleration, kinda sounds like a wind up toy, is it related to the small ground cable?Nice. With all the electronics upgrade, did you do the big3 or is that the only ground wire you upgraded?
Looked through the whole thread, great job!!!!
