Let's see pics of that interior! I'm curious how you've got it all laid out. Adding comms equipment and mounts for a phone or tablet is on my list.

The Expedition Essentials TPAM is the foundation for my Hondo Garage phone and tablet mounts. The tablet can be swiveled for easy use by the driver or passenger. I run the Gaia GPS app on the tablet when hitting the trails.

Today, I upgraded the USB plugs to the Blue Sea 4.8A model. I found I needed a little more charging power to my devices.

We installed the Relentless Fabrication Stingray this weekend. Next I'll be adding the Baja Designs S8 Driving/Combo light bar into the upper cutout in the bumper. For a winch, I'm going to get the Warn VR10-S. I used a Warrior Products license plate mount to keep things legal. It comes off easily to access the winch fairlead.

So... I was planning to order a Warn VR10 winch. It seemed almost perfect for this application. But I continued to look at the full range of Warns lineup and decided to bump up the performance and reliability. Today I ordered a Warn 9.5xp-s. I think we'll become very good friends over the years.
