    Still in the midst of wiring, now that the battery tray is all done, I was doing the large load items. I've installed my main 2ga trunk to the back to feed the Warn9500 multimount, also feeding the sub amp and the 4 channel amp and the 500w inverter.
    Packaging is a major pain. On my rear side panels, on one side I got the subwoofer, the subwoofer amp, one of the rear 4 channel speakers. On the other I got the 4 channel amp, the other rear 4 channel speaker, the 500w inverter/charger, a 15amp 120Vac plug, a 12V acc. plug, the inverter operator panel (which was fixed to the inverter, and I made "remote" using a piece of cat5 computer network cable. I also wired the inverter 120v side around back to the engine compartment, in case I have an engine block heater. (I use the one on my 6.5TD all the time), so I can have one inlet that charges the OPtima D31 battery and runs the block heater. Also is that side panel is pass thru wires for the rear tail/brake light and the top dome lights. With the diamond plate attached, it seems like nothing, but that side panel is LOADED with components and wiring!


    Just in case your wondering, the body is a one piece fiberglass tub, and the rear quarter sections came like that from the manufacterer. Great place to put things like amps and inverters.
