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.
Wow you've got a good thing going. Definitely want to see more pics of your set up. Love it! :cool:(y)
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.
