Started working on a platform for a cooler or fridge. The side toward the center is open to allow stowing seldom used stuff.

I tossed a pillow up there to see if her highness will sit that high. I might end up bringing the platform across to gain storage.

Was doing some maintenance today and noticed some chin pinstripes in addition to the new ones on the sides.

Have you chosen a fridge yet? Are you going to install a dual battery system or solar?
I actually have dual batteries already. Factory equipped in my case. There is a fresh pair of matched AGM batteries in there. I just rotated the 4 year old pair into the other wonder twin, since power demands aren’t as high there.

One of the benefits of the police package, in addition to the batteries, was an auxiliary power feed into the cabin. Under the Dash it splits into 3 separate 50 amp feeds. One under the dash, and two more in the rear.

i have very basic dumbed down solar in my teardrop. I may get a little more advanced and experimental here.

I was tired of tripping over this piece in the garage. Surplus from the other wonder twin.

it’s the base plate for the post of a laptop desk. 60D73FB3-AB89-4517-A28F-EC6CBE93874E.jpeg24A8B4B2-03EA-4E4E-B754-84DFEE417577.jpeg7857946B-FBCB-4A26-B1BE-27B3228318AE.jpeg

I added the DIC switches to dash to unlock a bunch of info. Wiring harness was already there. I also was able to turn off the Auto Unlock.

Now I need to gently modify the trim piece to add the switches.

I like your build and keeping us posted. I have a 2004 Tahoe Z71 that I am doing a few upgrades to.
[maybe I should start a thread so I can remember what i'm doing? hahaha]

Are you a member of the Tahoe forum? There are subforums for each generation as well.

That’s essentially what I did. Also one place I could go back to if I wanted to share something from a past post.

This is my build thread on the Tahoe forum. I talk more about each of the twins.

Thanks for the info! I'll go check them out.
I’ve learned a ton about my rig and how easy some things are to modify. Also how much is already in place for options you didn’t have etc.
