    Thanks!! I am going to order today.
    Did you have to cut any electrical wiring to install the USB plug, or does it plug into an existing open connection?

    It has its own little harnes to plug and unplug after installation, but the wires have to be tapped into your wiring

    As promised, here are a few photos of the inside. As I said I'm still working on ideas. Did anyone else permanently remove their back seats and build in something for storage in its place?

    One of the big advantages of the RTT is I can leave all the bedding in the roof, so no more sleeping bags or pillows falling out into the dusty road

    Courtesy lights between the rock sliders: I bought silicon pipe at a hardware shop, inserted LED strips in the clear pipe and sealed both ends with a gluegun. So now this 'light tube' is 100% air and water tight. Luckily for me there are support plates between the two rockslider pipes with the exact same diameter hole as the silicon pipe, so I worked the 'light tube' through these support brackets. I used my dome light inside the car as power source so the light tube goes slowly on/off as the dome light does when the car is unlocked/locked or the doors are opened/closed. The Zombie lights switch is just the switch I use to disable the light tubes if my doors are going to be standing open for a while. It makes a lot of light under and next to the car, helpful to dodge a puffadder or mud pool when climbing in or out at night

    Ek hou van jou jerry kan idee, dan nie nodig om die dak te oorlaai nie. Was jou platvorm onder die jerry kanne van gewone plywood?

    Ek sien daar loop 'n draad of kabel van agter die brandblusser af teen die kant van jou deur op na die dak toe. Was dit vir 'n radio/gps antenna?

    Ek het ook eers oorweeg om my yskas bo op laaie te sit, maar is die yskas nie dan te hoog nie?

    I bought it via amazon on my previous trip to the states, but I know LA Sport in PE also had a few. Adam Stander said in a previous post he found it online at:
