Lighting switches

Moved the DAC button I never used to the dash. Installed these OTTRATW switches in the center. They’re rocker switches and the fold out tray in the center touches the middle one. Will change them out to push button eventually.

Hardware

I got a bunch of spare hardware from work van shelf kits. I find these little nut inserts very useful. I drilled holes in the top of the crash bar and inserted these. Made a quick easy way to bolt in the light bar. They’re 1/4” sae. I’d like to get a rivnut tool with metric hardware.

Cargo liner

Made a cargo liner from 40 mil HDPE plastic I got from my boss. This was one of 14 layers used to line haz waste landfills. Light and flexible. Wanted something to cover the entire cargo area and seat backs when they’re folded forward, which they usually are.

Tred board

Finders keepers loser weepers. Found this Tred board on the side of the highway. Made some brackets to mount it to the roof rack. I like to use firearm cable locks for tools and shovels. Worked good on this so I don’t regift it.

Cowl “snorkel” intake

Not really sure why I pulled the trigger on doing this mod. If anything it makes room for a second battery and on board air. Kind of regret it but oh well. Heard about the cowl “snorkel” intake mod that Tacoma guys had done as well as some 4Runner owners.

Used some 3” schedule 40 pvc pipe and my factory intake tube which I cut. Cut the firewall using a hole saw. Had some old door edge molding that I used around the cut, it’s very squeaky.

Almost forgot about this easy addition. Lev-O-gage. This was something I kept when I sold my old square body GMC High Sierra. I sticky back hook and looped it on there. I’ve seen guys put em on the B-pillar too.

Kydex holster

Made a holster inside the center console a few years ago out of .95 Kydex plastic for my Springfield XD-S .45
It should go without saying. Be sure to check your local laws in regards to concealed carry of a firearm in your vehicle if doing a mod like this.

I’m researching new H11 low beams as I found out that these H11 LEDs are not legal according to NHTSA. Fog lights are going away once my bumper kit arrives.

I mounted a 32” curved light bar to the top of the crash bar in the lower grille opening.

I bought the 40” light bar new in box from my buddy for forty bucks. I made brackets to mount it to the roof rack.

I bought these cheap GS Power ditch light brackets for a Tacoma off of Amazon along with some cheap Nilight light pods. The fit is decent.

You have any pictures of how you mounted the light bar to the front cross member? I've got a Stedi Light Bar and want to do the same!

I used a right angle drill, a uni-bit and some rivnuts or nutserts or whatever you prefer to call them (shown in previous post #32)into the top of the crossmember. Pretty straightforward if you have access to this type of hardware.
