    Needed to replace the old Die Hard with a new Interstate AGM. Cleaned up the wiring and also upgraded my Solenoid on the National Luna Split Charger System.

    I had some problems with the unit disconnecting the batteries when the under-hood temp reached 145-150* during the summer months. I also think the truck was putting out more than the 85amps the unit is rated for. I went with the recommended 200 amp Solenoid and all seems good now.

    The new battery is in and I cleaned up the wiring a made a few changes:

    I also wanted to have the ability to see the Voltage from the rear of the truck when the fridge is running so I added a power werx 12VDC on my rear panel. Anderson Power-pole so I can easily remove the panel.

    @LandCruiserPhil was nice enough to collect a nice flush mount unit for the Anderson SB50 plugs. The Trailer Vision setup is straight from Australia and a nice bit of kit.. Installed it so that I can keep shore power on when in the garage and also connect my solar controller to it.

    This is my mobile solar controller unit that is not vehicle dependent. The battery side goes from the unit to the new plug under the bumper to charge my batteries when needed.

    Very nice and clean! What is that extra block connected to the military terminal. That's the part I'm in need of for more real estate of accessories Pwr.

    It was one of the last EMS Powered systems before they went out of business.

    Previously just had the ARB Fridge on the pull out drawer, but the height was still an issue, so I swapped sides with the drawers so the pull out is on the drivers side and then added the Alu-Cab fridge slide... Nice piece of kit and now I have access to the fridge and its contents.

    @Boltripper , I just finished reading through your entire thread, very well documented and a lot of good ideas in here. Perhaps I missed it but what transmission did you use behind your 2uz ?

    I was assuming it had the 4spd. So far, to my knowledge, all of the 2uz swaps have been that way. I'm curious if the non VVTI 2uz from the 03-04 GX would be a good swap candidate as it has a 5spd auto behind it.

    Integration of the electronics from the A750F will be difficult as well as the fact that the GX iterations have a different transfer case behind them vs. the 100 series iterations. The transfer case from the GX is more like a 4Runner chain driven transfer case vs. 100 series gear driven similar to the 80 series.

    Ideally you want the A750F and transfer case from a 100 series through 2007.

    But only came behind the VVTI motors correct ? Of course I have no idea how the trans is controlled on those setups. Whether or not it can be separated from the VVTI and ran behind the non-VVTI engine. Pretty much just spitballing. I know the drivetrain in the wife's GX is brilliant with the 2uz and 5spd. The 120 and 80 have very similar weights from the factory so I can imagine how much better a heavy and properly re-geared 80 would feel with that combination. Regardless, I'm pretty impressed with @Boltripper build thread. Looks to be a very well balanced and thought out rig.
