Corey's FJ with a few mods!

First major expensive mod, the Clifford Alarm
http://www.clifford.com/matrix/responder/default.asp
Parts #s from Cartoys do not match up with the site, but mine has two remotes.
One plain remote, and the two way LCD one that acts as a pager too.
It also beeps when the alarm arms itself and disarms.

I also had a separate DEI battery backup alarm installed.
This way if a thief cuts the main battery wires to disconnect the Clifford, the battery backup alarm will wail straight for about 4 hours on its own internal battery.

It is hooked up full time to the main 12v battery to charge it, and if it senses no power, it will wail, and it is just as loud as the siren for the Clifford.
It has a key hole on top to turn it off for when you go to get serviced and they may need to disconnect your main battery.
If you do not disarm it, it will wail when they disconnect your main juice.

Both are state of the art, and better than my DEI Python 650 I had in the 4Runner.

OK, on with a few visible mods.
The Bandi CB antenna mount.
Mount just put on
With 4' Firestik II antenna attached
Unit by itself

Cargo box from the 4Runner.
It fits nicely, but the tie downs in the back of the rig do not match up like in the 4Runner.
There are four of them, but I will have to do some thinking here to secure it.
Do not want it rolling in case the shiny side of the rig ever does a 180.
The cargo box

That is all I am doing today, will work on more over the weekend.
Hope to get the Bentup sliderz installed, and also the Slee/Yakima brackets for the Hi-Lift jack put up on the roof rack.

Re: A few mods 7-25-06

good job mang
a suggestion for the box, in my old jeep ( shhhh i know ) i took up the carpet-in your case the rubber to expose the bare steel. took 1 inch thick wood and glued it to the steel floor with some super silcone adhesive that car stereo guys use. then screwed the boxes into the wood. you can pretty much lifth the vehicle by the boxes. if you want to take it out just cutt off the wood and grind off the glue - repaint
just a thought

Re: A few mods 7-25-06

Looking good. I like the cargo box, what are you doing for your on-board air?

Re: A few mods 7-25-06

Here are more pics of the cargo box from when it was in the 4Runner.
http://www.pnw4runners.com/index.php?dir=cargobox/

You can see the impact wrech too, and the old Powertank in a few of the photos.

A few months back I bought another Powertank, and here it is next to the box.
http://www.pnw4runners.com/temp/back_in_black.jpg

There is not as much room in the FJ, as I also use to have a 15" JL W6 subwoofer in a sealed box behind the cargo box.
The Powertank will not fit beside it, so I am thinking of drilling holes in the top of the cargo box and bolting down the PT bracket to it to hold the PT.

Congratulations Corey!
Glad to see your ship and rig came in on time. Since you're a Yotatech Guru I know you've got lots of cool Mods in store for that puppy.
Have Fun;
Brian

Re: A few mods 7-25-06

Got my onboard air system installed after work Friday.
Drilled 4 holes into the top of my cargo box and mounted the Powertank bracket, and it is rock solid.

Powertank installed
http://www.pnw4runners.com/fj/powertank.jpg

I bought this tank a few months back to replace my black one I use to have in the 4Runner.
I had to let that tank go a few years back when I was on my layoff from Boeing.

I like C02 as it is very fast, faster than an air compressor.
One 10 lb tank will refill about 30 tires from 15 psi back to street pressure after 4wheeling.

You can run air tools with it too.
Here is a very old video of my taking off my lug nuts on the 4Runner to put my winter tires on.

Nice Corey!

Now, how did you run the antenna cable, and how did you install the CB? Thanks.
