Drilled and tapped a couple holes into the inner fender to mount the keyed power fuse block. 1000002665.jpg

I ran the power and ground wires to the blocks. I left the fuses out of the power circuits so the fuse block in the cargo area isn't powered yet. I still need to get a fuse tap so I can run a keyed power wire to the keyed fuse block. I'm going to tap it into the rear seat heater fuse location.

A new steel rear bumper just arrived today. I'll get that and the new running boards mounted tomorrow, weather permitting.

Today I started by removing the factory rock slider from the passenger side. Two out of the three larger bolts snapped off, so I. postponed installing that side until I get some center punches so I can drill out the broken bolts.

After that, I went back to the wiring for the cargo area plugs. Im pretty beat right now, so I'll just post pics of the process in order so you can follow along. Ask away if anyone needs clarification of what i did. 1000002686.jpg 1000002687.jpg 1000002688.jpg 1000002689.jpg 1000002690.jpg 1000002691.jpg 1000002692.jpg 1000002693.jpg 1000002694.jpg 1000002695.jpg

Ran keyed power to the rear camera.

Then installed the swing gate table.

While the rear panel was out, I swapped the power wires around so the USB port was on battery power and the 12v power port was on keyedpower. I did that because the power port has an internal led light that stays on while powered up and the USB port has an on/off switch on it. I also saw that the USB port connector wires contacted the sheet metal body when installed, so I used the spacer I had previously made for the 12v power port. I shortened it about 1/2" for less stick-out though.

I also got a new stereo installed, a Sony XAV-AX6000. The Maestro RR2 control adapter let's the steering wheel buttons work, as well as adding gauge functionality to the new radio. 1000002718.jpg 1000002719.jpg

Got rid of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T's today. Picked up some Falken Wilderness AT4w tires in the stock 255/70-18 size.

Pics aren't loading today for some reason. I'll try to upload them later.
