Nice build and great write-up!! :bigthumb:

I especially like the effort you put into your auxiliary wiring set-up. It's good to see (what appears to be) proper relays, fuses, surge protection, circuit breakers, etc. :cheers: :cheers:

I got inspiration from another forum for packing some food in shoebox to take up minimal space. Instead of a shoebox, I used a small plastic bin that I found at Target and decided to use this to store food in my truck.

This is what I came up with:








Upon repacking this into the container, I have managed to squeeze in another water bottle. I know three bottles isn't enough, but I have about 20 or so bottles stashed around the vehicle. This leaves me with at least 3+7 (stashed in between the plastic and metal body panels) bottles that shouldn't be touched unless necessary.

Note this is also separate from my BOB/GHB that also resides in my truck.

Others have asked me to compile a list of the stuff that I carry in my truck. I finally got around to doing it after lagging for many many months.

In the list are all the things that are in/on my truck at all times. I might be leaving one or two things out, but I'm pretty sure I got all of it. This from downsizing what I used to carry. The pics are in order chronologically of my drawer set up over the years. Included in the list is my contents of my BOB/GHB and modifications to my vehicle.

The big bold/underlined titles are the locations and the smaller bold/italicized titles are the smaller divisions within each location.

I love your FJ! I cannot wait to come back to the USA from my duty station in Germany! I will be able to begin some serious MOD's. Right now I am having the Doug Thorley Headders installed by the German Toyota dealership near me. I will be installing the TRD CAI soon.

Good luck and have some fun out there.:cheers:

Looks good Wes, bummer I missed you at AllCal, hope all is well. One thing about your rear storage that I think gets overlooked is the fact that there is no raw wood. So many storage units get painted after it's been built leaving the inside framing untouched. Nice attention to detail.
