Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

Lol...yeah, I was kind of thinking it was redundant since your instructions are so good. It really was one of the easier mods I've done. Maybe if some people on the fence see it in my build, they will pull the trigger.

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

I drilled and inserted the control button in the same small dash panel that I installed my KC aux light switches in. I connected the ground wire to the same bolt I attached my aux light switch ground wires under the dash. Secure extra wires with zip ties as needed. Done. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn...

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

Drill hole in clutch plate cover large enough to route remaining wire harness through hole. Apply sealant once wire is routed through hole. Use zip ties as needed.Image

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

Run override harness up toward fuse block (I ran mine down before attaching to the module...gravity helps). Drill hole in fuse block housing to run red wire into fuse block. Attach add-a-fuse wire provided. Remove proper fuse from block and insert it into empty slot on add-a-fuse connector. Seal spo...

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

Apply sealant to housing still attached to the truck. Press on smart bar module, affix OE bolts and torque all bolts to 37 lbs. Reattach factory harness and new override harness. Use dielectric grease on both harness clips. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201227/a741456c2075a8856853f602f71de1d3.j...

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

Apply provided silicone sealant to new actuator motor and screw it to the aluminum adapter plate. I used slide channel pliers to snug it up carefully. Attach adapter plate to smart bar housing using provided bolts. I used a little blue locktite. Torque to 37 lbs once on truck. https://uploads.tapata...

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

Installed the Abel Swaybar Bypass today. I have to say Dave makes job easy, and works perfectly. Here is the step-by-step. This may be redundant for some people, but might be helpful to others. First step, disconnect wire harness from smart bar. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201227/b485460de11c...

Look great Peter. Like the functionality as well. If I recall your rear bumper was a little chewed up from Rausch Creek anyway
