So something I found also on my first run was the sub amp kept shutting down and also seemed to get too hot (not in a restricted space). It was a reman unit from amazon so I went ahead and got the same series but it was a mono specific amp. Took a lil work and the hardest part was pulling the passenger body panel since thats the only way to get to the passenger inner rear sat mount bolt. I had no issues with on my second run...

So the last thing I needed to figure out was a damn cup holder. I originally started with making some metal holders but was not happy with how they would mount. I did a bunch of looking online and I found the "ram" system--They were mainly made for bikes and such but I found the parts that would work and ordered a few parts. The hardest part was finding a location that was not only accessible but also out of the way. It took a while to find the happy place for them--and I hope they work out...

So one thing I really wish I had done during the build was a way to plug in a hand remote. I told myself "I will never need this"... well after some thought and not being able to re spool my rope by myself I came to the conclusion that was a dumb idea. I also like to go out solo and knew it could be very handy to be able to operate the winch's outside the rig. I had a couple buddies who said go wireless--I wanted to keep things as simple as possible..

So I ordered 2 new plugs (WARN 16296 Three Wire Socket Kit ).

So I started with the front plug. I actually found a nice spot for it as the slats in the grill were the perfect size for the plug to go thru. I made a mount that sits on the back side and simply sandwiches against the grill and in a nice easy location.

So the one thing that bummed me out about not doing it from the get go was having a dedicated fused circuit to the plug. So I pulled voltage from the relay power feed and protected it with a fuse able link. I got the plug fully wired and checked it out--that will be nice to have.

So the rear was a lil more work. I pulled the back panel that holds the lamps/lic plate and removed the cover I had made for the solenoid pack.

I made a mount for the plug and tig welded it to the inside of the cover.

There isn't allot of room with the rear panel in place but really isn't too bad plugging the remote in.

So every year we do our annual hangover/snow run. Well I wanted to try and see what I could so about doing a windshield. So since it was kind of an experiment I went down to the hardware store and got as piece of that cheap plexyglass. So after a bunch of templates I came up with a pretty slick setup with a lower lip that kinda wedges the bottom of the windshield against the backbone panel(panel the dash butts up to). And a few zip ties its pretty secure. Now with this cheap stuff I can't town down the road or it will go boom.

So my little girl came with me on the run and it worked awsome. And the rig did perfect...

So I really contemplated when I built the rig on making covers over the amps since the buttons/knobs will be facing upward and get water/dirt in them. I found nothing really happened out on the trail but towing water was getting on the amps.

So started playing with some aluminum and my sheet metal brake. Here is what I came up with and once I built one I was able to make a mirror image of it for the other amp.

And they screw right to the speaker box and I added foam to the inside of the covers on the outer edge and the foam sis against the amp so they don't make any noise. I also got some 90 degree rca adapters so they fit under the covers. First trip out and didn't even notice them.
