hello, hey i hate to burst your bubble but the wiring is not in your Fj if it didnt come with it. i know i had the same idea untill i bought all the pieces, inverter, outlet, dash switch, ect. and took it apart. nope no wiring. after many conversations with the guys at sparks toyota it was confirmed that the wiring harness has to be changed. there has to be 2 harnesses, they found the one that goes from the dash, switch location, to the inverter. but couldn't come up with the harness that runs under the body up to the engine compartment. i have the part # for the harness they found, if you want it pm me and i'l send it to you if i remember it was around $325 bucks. also if your interested in the inverter and switch i'll sell it to you for what i got in it. i'm going to put in an aftermarket inverter wired to the factory outlet, i just wont have a switch, oh well.unfortunatly rover that wasnt was I was looking for. I dont have the technical skill of that man to disasemble an inverter and such and was hoping for a more plug and play type. Since most of the wiring is already done in the vehicle, I was hoping that it would be the same for the inverter and be able to just replace plastic cover with the stock outlet.
So back to my original question, does anyone know where/how to get the original invert (part #) and not how to disasemble the an inverter box and wire your fj.
Under the seat is a good place for it. If you do ford deep waters, I would consider somewhere else though. Document your install for us to see? I'll be going down the same route in the future.What I would like to do is take the plugs out and mount them somwhere and hide the large part of the unit under a seat or in the back somewhere. Do you know if this is possible?
I think this might be the only option left without breaking the bank. Wiring will be the hard part for me :mecry: but you have to learn sometime
Ok ordered an inverter and ill see what I can do with it (take off the cover etc).. for 70 bucks its not to bad
