Starsky will become famous soon enough
Just got home from the shop with my new Victory 4x4 Blitz Sliders installed and all the lights wired up. I really like that the lights are somewhat practical rock lights that illuminate the wheels so I can see what's going on at night. The sliders look awesome and are great peace-of-mind for off-road. I even have 4 new hi-jack points I can use! I placed the switch - thanks Rago - in the center console so I could access the lights from either side of the truck. I'll post some daytime photos tomorrow that show the sliders better, and will also show my new Victory Molle panel and roof crossbars with accessories.

The bottom piece of plywood is cut about 3" shorter than 41" due to the upward angle at the back of the seats. I didn't figure this out until laying everything in the back so you should see what I am talking about.

Threw a few ideas together that were inspired by this forum and I am super happy with the results.

Looks great man. Almost identical the one I built as well. Having the slide out is so damn convenient, I use mine a ton.

Awesome dude! Thanks! Are you anchoring it down or is it just placed there?

Right now its just placed in there. It doesn't move at all and I haven't heard it making any noise. I figure the first time I go offroad with it I will determine if I need to anchor it down.

Since we are talking about grill lights here some more.
I scored a"socaltrail" behind the grill custom plate from another member, ( Thanks Mike)
And installed two Rigid Floods. This will eliminate the marker lights seen in the photo,
Also the fogs have been in for awhile they are Rigid spots with yellow covers.
Haven't had the floods out at night yet but the fogs worked great.
I will post photos later in the "behind the grill lights" thread.

After I called the dealership about my 19 trd off road, I played with the settings looking to change the door lock settings. I can't find it anywhere. I don't have a vehicle icon in the settings screen. I also tried doing the remote window roll down thing. Failed at them all. The dealership said that those features are only available on the limited packages. I'm not sure if I want to try the carista route, because of their subscription fees. Anyone have any suggestions?

Pics will be up this weekend when I'm done my other projects but so far this week I pulled off the front and rear bumper fascia to remove the old PlastiDip and recovered in Rustoleum Truck Bed Liner. Which so far is a major improvement in looks and hopefully more durable.

Removed the factory rear tie-down in preperation for my @Inv4drZm recovery point.
Finally got around to removing my factory running boards so they don't slow me down in the sand this summer.
Ordered my @bandi Mount and ARB Twin Compressor
Ordered some Vinyl for the hood to kill the glare

-----

Later this week:
Oil Change, Shrockworks dual battery and smog relocation install, recovery point paint and install, compressor prep, vinyl wrap hood, maybe vinyl wrap roof rack, and a trip to OBX to break in the wife's new Taco.

I know they used the radio circuit for the power, but that's about it. Sorry I can't be more helpful. It didn't sound a lot more complicated than mounting it to the left of the steering wheel.

Finally installed 6112's today on clips 5 & 3 to level it out and improve the ride. I anticipate they will settle a little lower but I think it's sitting level.

I started towing my track car last year. It really does well. Just installed firestone bags for the rear and I have no sag when towing anymre. Totally worth the $100
