Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

Your rear bumper looks great! Do you know if a WD hitch on an ‘05 would create mounting issues? Guess I’ll call mercenary & chat about that. Really like the look on your truck![emoji106] The bumper I got was from Maple Off-road. It bolts on over/above the OE hitch in the same position as the OE bum...

Ha. Better yet, my kids should be cleaning it out. But, even if it was, my wagon wouldn't fit in that so called "oversized" garage.

I also spent the better part of the day mocking up / installing the ICECO VL60 dual fridge freezer on a bed slide. I used a piece of plywood to raise the slide so that it would make it over the tailgate, which sits a little higher when opened. I used nutserts in the bed and thumbscrews to bolt throu...

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

You don't have to cut for Neil's bolt on bumper for 4th gens. It's not looking like he is making one for the 3rd gen, but it might be worth asking.

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

I couldn't help myself. I pushed my itchy trigger finger on the order button for a Maple Off-road rear bumper. Just can't deal with the black Thuren on the front and Chrome OE bumper on the rear.

Night time shots. I do think I need to buy longer bolts with a spacer to better center the pod light in the bumper pocket. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210502/3fe22ade6f6a8007456410fac0695831.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210502/d6e292f834c0ea090f5ee32c629b419e.jpg Sent from my Moto Z...

Nerd tool #3. Weather Pack connector crimper. I used this to crimp connectors for the Baja Designs lights. They use Weather Pack connectors. The only thing that would have made this more nerdy is if I got the ratcheting crimper that crimps both crimps at the same time. This one is a 2 step process. ...

I just installed the Baja Designs lights in the Thuren bumper. I used the original fog light harness from the OE bumper so that it would be plug and play with the OE fog light connector and controls in the cab.
