Managed to get a couple of quality of life additions to the rig taken care of. Infinity 6x9s in the back add much needed bass and depth to the sound system. Rod holder fits perfectly on the jerry can holder.

Awesome !! How practical is it ? I'm sure you pretty much have everything MOLLE based ?
Would I be able to find dimensions any where to fabricate this ??

There are a wide variety of MOLLE based pouches and bags that I can load onto the panel as well as quick fist straps. I went with the largest panel that Gray Man Tactical had in the more rigid aluminum. Link here. Mine relies on both the second and third row seatbelt bolt locations so if you have second row seats installed you'll have to adapt it to your situation.

So My master cylinder is going bad and I have a new one to install. I decided to pull the intake and put in new injectors, insulate the wiring harness near the EGR, replace the little vacuum lines, fuel lines, and some of the little coolant lines I couldn't get to before.
Got to use my new SST also.

Those look like they fit pretty good. LINK? Some of the soft-sided molle panels like that are so saggy but these don't look too bad.
Well some photos are notoriously misleading

There are a lot of sellers basically displaying and selling same item, I did order one (its cheap so I have little faith in its quality but I hope I'm wrong) so will let you know how it is when it arrives.

Alternator went out while visiting my folks in Huntsville. Quick mud search while waiting on the tow to figure out where to take it. Huge thanks to Rory with Rocket City Cruisers who answered my call on a Saturday. Lucked out as a bunch of guys from the local club were wrenching at his shop. He had me back on the road in < 1.5 hrs from breakdown (including the tow there)

Got the new double DIN head unit installed. i went with the Sony XAV-AX1000 based on some decent Mud reviews (it was also on sale at BestBuy)

I thought it would be a 1-2hr install but ended up taking me 4hrs as the PO had cut off all the oem stereo plugs and had a spiders web of wires connected to the single DIN stereo he had installed. Finally got it all sorted out and the sound is great out

My only remaining issue is the a/c compressor is not kicking on now and it was working fine before I started the headunit install. All the controls on the instrument panel are lighting up and seem to be working fine... the blower works fine... and automatic temp control calls for heat and blows hot air when I slide the temp up. But nothing I do will get the a/c compressor to cycle on. I even replaced ALL the fuses in the fuse block just to be certain that was not the cause. At this point I’m open to any and all suggestions! Very Frustrating!!!

I don't believe in coincidences, pull the head unit and check the wiring. You messed something up while you were in there. First thing I would check is the AC switch....
