    If it is the 60 I am thinking about it is actually a 140. So they were adapted either way because the 80 frame is shortened so stock bolt hole locations will not work if a straight bolt on application. At least that is what I'd think.

    They are pretty cool for a truck that wont see heavy enough terrain to rip them up.

    In addition to Nav, you have an additional RGB and USB plug-ins, CarPlay (not sure what that is), you lose HD Radio.

    That’s the rig, 140. I’m sure my wife would like them. I’m hoping somebody knows which ones were adapted.

    Got it. CarPlay is Apple's attempt to drive your car. Through the stereo.

    Fooling around with the battery switches and ACR template this AM. It is about time to start cutting things. Also bought the Kobalt brand air/oil separator for the PCV hose mode.

    Tried to shove a Group 31 in the driver side battery box and cut the box and did a bunch of other crap and finally just gave up and got a Group 24 to give me lots of room for cables, etc.

    Going to put a Group 27 on passenger side.

    While I had the battery box out, I took the charcoal canister out, replaced the three hoses and tested it for pressure. I was getting some high vapor pressure and after changing the hoses, I didn't notice nearly as much.

    Had to flop my battery tie-down to avoid shorting the battery and to give me a lip to use to hold the poly.

    Tried to some oven forming on the poly I am installing between the battery and the wall. Went a little too curvy - its back in the oven flat getting flattened out a bit :)

    Hood wouldn't close with the poly tied down on top of the engine bay frame, so had to go smaller. I also literally MELTED my poly in the oven upon trying to flatten it.

    Third time is hopefully the charm. More to come.

    Working on this second dual battery system. Wanted to go back with @Cruiserdrew 's diagram, here:

    However, I am wired on the Tundra like this:

    Wondering if I am missing out on something. Assuming this is fine, too and that if I go ON - I am still connecting correctly.

    Awesome - congrats!!

    They are 315/75R16 - 34.6"

    You don't happen to need some same-sized KM2s, do you? :) I have 4 nearly brand new (<500 miles) on FZJ80 wheels. PM if so :)

    I just set it up so I could isolate both sides and switch the inside panel. You just didn't switch the inside panel. Still works perfectly.

    yea, your fuse panel isn't switchable which is something i've found to like. If you ever mess with any of the electronics, you can turn the switch off and the power is cut off to the panel. after that, switch it back on and you are good to go.

    Even though that sounds like a great deal, I definitely want to get KO2s when the time comes especially after seeing your pictures. I take a couple trips up to Boone in the winter and the K02s will be great in the snow. I've driven a friends Jeep with K02s through thick snow and they did fantastic!
