    Working on adding the second Battery. Made some new hold down brackets from some scrap metal I had in the garage. Time for some lunch then I can finish wiring it in. Just need to tap the charge sensor wire, aka "alternator good" as @george_tlc calls it, that way it can activate my selenoid. Later down the line I might add my marine switch so I can link them to run a winch.

    For now the relay controller and all the other items in the back as well as the stereo and CB will be running off this second batt.

    Thanks to @george_tlc for the write up. And thanks to @yodaTEQ for the replacement battery tray for the DS since mine had some damage.

    I was asked about the bride on the Toyota 150 in my pics

    it is Arabian babbler :)
    The Arabian babbler is a passerine bird belonging to the genus Turdoides. It is a communally nesting resident bird of arid scrub in the Middle East which lives together in relatively stable groups with strict orders of rank

    Ended up ordering 4 of these from RA along with a few other parts. Thanks for the suggestion. They are nice and bright, but the fit could be a little better. They don't click in quite as good as the 9005/9006 bulbs. They don't jiggle while driving so I guess they pass the test!

    The dunes of Tunisia was hard on birfs for both 80 and 60 series

    4 - 80 series birf failures on our trip

    3 on the red now POS HDJ81

    I can now claim 2 broken 80 series birf to my credits:rolleyes: along with several other 80 parts.:eek:

    [​IMG]

    And 1 on this HDJ80

    [​IMG]

    We were down to only a short birf so some African modifications were needed. Sand tightens all tolerances

    I did on the low beams but the high beams seamed to not need it. Didn't need to trim the tabs on them either.

    I spent the weekend helping my dad on his once in a lifetime bison hunt on the Henry Mountains in south eastern Utah.

    That is one aggressive, hard-headed bird! I understand what you mean by it being hierarchy-centric. This bird is trying to set the pecking order with the bird in the mirror. Entertaining!

    Make a new air actuator for stock diff lock.
    It costs about 40$ for each.

    All failures were appeared to be cages. We had 6 spares and once they were gone we drove without. In locked vehicles we would gut the inside and lock the diff to get drive.

    Dunes are tough in Tunisia but we did make to the highest dune in 5 days (due to perfect conditions) as others spend a life time and never even see it.
