I'm done! Everything is wrapped up and done for at least this round. The Bronco has proven itself on the trail. Gear, storage, fridge all setup. Winch and wiring is done. All 6 Aux Upfitters are used. Just ready to enjoy and now making wheeling and MTB plans to take us through to snowmobile season. I added pics of the Bronco to the start of the thread, showing last round of upgrades below.

Aux 5 and 6 always on.

1/0 wiring was fun, had to get the expensive flexible stuff after installing and hating the non-flexible wire.

This was annoying, I noticed my driver RSE step was a bit floppy when stepping on it. I was trying to figure out how it differed from the passenger, then this peg/plug fell on the ground. I couldn't get it back in and noticed the bolt next to it was loose as well. Ended up replacing the peg/plug(?) with a bolt. That all wasted an hour, not sure why this little issue pissed me off. Maybe since it should have been a bolt to begin with?

Been all over with the Bronco, lots of runs exploring forest service roads, mountain biking and some real wheeling.

Awesome build great write up on the wiring. I really like the LED strip wiring you did. I am going to have to do something similar!

Thanks! Everyone that’s seen my Bronco thinks it comes with the lighting and everything else I’ve done, I have to explain that I’ve done a bit of work to the Bronco, you just can’t see it, it all looks stock.

Any lighting will be a huge improvement. I do think the lights I got are legit, I didn’t use any of the connectors or pigtails that I bought, just soldered everything. My wife wants to set the disco mode every theme she gets in, attracts way more attention then I like.

Been out playing a lot this year! Did the ugly wrap, super fun driving around.

Next upgrade in the works, full ARB air setup, digital pressure and quad filling. Really considering the Icon Stage 8...
