    Since no one wants to use this section, I will......

    When you do the scuba mod, do you need to remove the cover off the breather on the axle? If so, how do you remove it? If not, do you just get a tube that fits over it?

    Nope, just want to get the breathers up higher since I seem to find water holes fun to play in sometimes! :D

    You need to unscrew the little metal cap from the axle. There is a Camry part that screws into the same hole and has a barbed hose fitting. You can then easily attach a hose and hose clamp and then route the hose to a suitable location and install a new breather cap, or reuse the old one. I installed a small spectre filter from auto zone as the little cap ones don't breathe so well.

    The light bar is a big project. I figure I'll burn out my HID's by the time that project is ready to mount up.

    I depends on the gauge of the wire and size of te relay. My 4 roof side and rear lights are on one switch to two relays. There is more than one way to skin a cat. Also, my front roof rack ligjts are on two switches. One for he outer pair, and one for theinner pair. call me if you need to discuss.

    That's an easy fix. I'm sure you could find another switch. Any interest in a NOLA wiring session any time soon? I would like to get with Kevin and Bart and knock mine out so I can concentrate on bigger and better things.

    I don't have the stuff, do you? I wanted to add a fuse block, and some 12 gauge wire but I have not purchased any of it.

    Oreiley's is open. I think they have it all. I have a fuse block already. Bart put it in. I just need to run cables and put in the switch.
