    Thanks, much appreciated

    OK the back up alarm me & my son installed last sept died a slow death over the course of the winter

    the colder it got, the worse it sounded until it died

    heres the old unit which was very loud, more treble sound


    so I upgraded after returning the defective one to the parts store & paid the price difference, this one is supposedly commercial, hopefully it lasts


    & got a toggle switch for those roof LED's


    video of the new backup alarm later

    with all my therapy visits lately I havent had time for anything nor felt in the mood



    had a little while to run the wire up under the head liner while waiting today...



    top of door where it enter rig





    so I dug out the handy little tool





    got the wire to the fuse panel & wasn't sure which way to go from here





    finally decided to tuck it into the dash area, need to find an accessory here





    it'll be good to use these soon




    & almost got stuck today

    got the tire carrier almost done, need to devise a way of bolting the tire(rim) onto the carrier



    tried to use that hitch extension, that made the winch come out front so far I'd have no approach angle whatsoever



    with the help of my dad doing the heavy lifting, we deiced to cut my front bumper up some, nice the winch is tighter to the frame



    gonna sell that NFAB light bar since we moved the hellas to the front valence



    here's our work & my dad wanted to be in the pic
