    Thanks for the info Dave. For some reason I didn't get notified of your reply - I'll have to check my settings. I'm not on Facebook but may join just to check out the group.

    Hi Dave,
    I recently moved back to Oregon*- in the Happy Valley. I grew up here but been away since before High School. Anyway, I traded my car in for an FJ and want to go exploring. Hoping to find some groups or trail runs to join. Never really been off roading and want don't want my first time to be solo. I hope it's alright that I send you a message - I saw you're in the area and active so wondering if you can point me in the right direction.

    Thanks in advance,
    Andrew Taylor

    It was a pleasure meeting you, Dave!

    I'll keep an eye out for upcoming meets and events. I really need to try harder to set some time aside to attend some. It's rare I get the chance to get out into the wild and share my build. Sad, I know. But Moab in October sounds like a great way to start!

    I'll keep my eyes open for you on the road when I'm in town!

    Dave,

    So sorry I'm just now seeing this. I've been insanely busy the few days.

    Regarding the power cord from the radio, yes I do believe the polarity matters. Before I cut the cigarette adapter off, I took it apart to see which wire was acting as ground, and which was power. I then soldered that to the new connectors appropriately, making sure to match the polarity for both the male and female connectors. For the fuse, I believe I just went with something slightly larger than the power consumption of the radio, but I don't recall the exact fuse. P=IV, so in this case P=4watts (from spec sheet), V=12v, so solving for "I" gives .33amps. As long as your fuse is bigger than that you'll be OK.

    I hope this helps! Let me know if it doesn't.

    Jim

    Yes! Perfect thanks! I have all mentioned to include a solid working winch and compressor (ARB Style). Look forward to meeting up.

    Ha! I thought we met via the forum before. I was just reviewing my "friendships" and there you were. Great to meet you at Costco the other day.

    This may be my son and my first trip to the dunes. Any packing lists you recommend, etc. ?

    Im not having any luck with salvage yards either. Im thinking that it may be possible to re-flash the skid control ecu in the master brake solenoid using TIS Tech stream. just need to find out for sure.

    Very nice! Your FJ is looking awesome! The pictures of the washer bottle and pump repo didn't come through but everything else did.

    Sweet job you are doing!
