Installed my solar panel. I worked with Lensun Solar to get one made for the newer Superduty and they did a great job!

How do u like it . Easy of install ? I'm looking at one for my sequoia and my kid for his f150
It wasn’t bad, we put a decal down first to protect the paint for removal in the future. I put the body tape all around the outside so no water or dirt can ever get under.

Did it come with the decal and body tape. In the kit ? I was looking at the full kit

You can order it with the decal and controller. It doesn’t come with the 3M. I used the Gorilla Tape brand as I have had great luck with it. Instructions made it super easy to install.

Worked on looking at places to mount two Rotopax fuel cans.

And then gave up because paying @ $260 for two basic 2 gallon fuel cans and mounts just to say I'm "Overloading".....is absolutely ridiculous. more power to you, if that's your thing but I just refuse to pay that for a gas can or two.
Took out my sleeping platform and went back to a normal truck bed.
I now have room to secure a decent 5 gallon fuel can for a whole lot less.

After 4 days of the Toyota dealership not contacting me I called and said - Hows the rig, after being called Honey about 10 times… so 1950’s… they informed me they are working with Toyota central to figure out why the error I am getting is occurring, could be bad wiring in the transmission so they need to drop it and fiddle around some more… figure it will be 3 weeks before I see Alice again, so I may go get my gear off her top rack before it goes MIA…

Finally got my Recovery boards mounted up. Still need to buy and install a locking mechanism, but this works for now. Next weekend is the solar panels and the Goal Zero install.

Also had to patch a tire, got a long nail through it causing a slow leak.

Added a 100W Renogy solar panel to the lefthand side of the iKamper. The cable is running down betwen the tray and cabin, under the chassis (sitting on the topside of the frame) and then connects to an anderson plug at the rear (and then onto the 2nd battery). Reason for this one was the arb elements fridge in the tray is now on 24/7 and this 100W panel is a good size for battery top-up during the day and fits onto the iKamper nicely.
The other add-on this week was the 3.25" snorkel and upgraded high flow air-box. Few water crossing to test her out over the coming weeks but overall happy with how it looks.

Got the locking mechanism for the traction boards. Threded a 1/2" hitch pin with a locking head. Used nut/washer on both sides, and a lockwasher on the exterior. A little silicon under the washers to keep the water out from inside the topper. Works perfect and no rattling.

I SPENT A LOT OF $$$$$

New shocks, new sway bar links, new parking brake shoes, new rear brake linings, new rear axle seals due to a plugged rear axle vent..... I'm sure i'm missing something.
It went in for an oil change.... :confounded::confounded::confounded:
But it'll be reliable this summer. This is why I get my oil changes done by a mechanic.

Started the wiring process for some extra powah. Front fuse box for little things like lights and lights and other lights. I'm also mounting a forward camera tomorrow and needed power for that.
Rear will be my aux battery, air compressor and some more 12v charging ports. The rear setup is temporary until I get my topper. Might be a few months for that.
Film at 11.
