Man, what an amazing job you have done. That is a badass rig. I am digging the full black with a little red accent.

Now you need to bring it west and let's loosen some bolts the easy way ;)

Do you have any use for the chrome rear bumper trim? Mine is pretty scratched up.

Here's all the scraps (except the resonator... not worthy of being called a scrap). Any of this worth keeping?


Also, if you're not using a $19 harbor freight oscillating tool with an upgraded $10 blade you're doing it wrong (check out some of the thin cuts). It's pretty much like butter... melting a bit as it cuts.

Few questions:
1) anyone know what this sensor is? I found reference to it in the FSM, but no name or function.

2) thoughts on putting the trans cooler shroud back?

I've had numerous request on the cutting technique.
Nice blade will cut/melt with very little force. I don't plunge all the way in with the leading end, but the back will finish the cut. All the final cuts were made like this with the panels on the rig.

Wired up the rear lights! Almost used @grinchy-meister's junction box method, but then decided to just tap in and call it a day. Found some sweet low-heat solder/ shrunk connectors that are a lot thinner than regular butt crimping. Also had some 5 strand solid sprinkler wire on hand and figured that if it was good enough for direct burial, it would do fine hidden in a bumper.

The lights didn't come with a wiring diagram (or the kids lost it) so it took a hot minute to decode them.

Here's the stock wires you'll need:
White = ground
Blue = brake
Yellow = reverse
Green = taillights (Running lights)


Here's the wiring for the new lights:

Left light
White - Ground
Black - Reverse
Red - Brake
Brown - Tail/ Running
Yellow - Turn

Right side
White - Ground
Black - Reverse
Red - Brake
Brown - Tail/ Running
Green - Turn

Unfortunately, the turn wires can't be tapped from the trailer harness since those are designed for a single brake light that flash for turning. A single wire will be pulled from each tail light down to the exposed wire, then properly connected.
