Boing! I think it's time for me to move to CA. I've always wanted to move back. With trails like these, it may just push me over the edge.

La Jolla, here I come! Lol

Re: Omelet's Build Thread!

Ok on with the mods!!!!!


I have had this planned for some time now, only just now decided to fund it! Have you ever been wheeling going up a steep obstetrical or hill, and wished you could see something besides your hood and the sky? Funny me too!!!

I didn't want to buy a bunch of high dollar stuff for this, so I got on Amazon, did some searching, read a bunch of reviews, and finally made my purchase. I got a 7" display, 2 cameras, a plain hitch plug, and a hitch lock. It all came in a couple weeks ago, but I haven't been around to mess with any of it until now.



The cameras are pretty basic and cheap, but the reviews were great so I got one for the rear and one for the front. They include different collars so you can flush mount them or angle them.



The hitch plug is a basic $3 piece, no frills. That way if I crack it, or smash it wheeling I wont feel too bad. I measured the camera and drilled a hole for it.



I decided to flush mount the rear camera for now and see how I like it.



I wired it all up to a spare battery so I could make sure the camera was aligned properly.



Now the easiest solution for a screen would have been to use my NAV. Unfortunately I have the original 05 unit that doesn't have a video input let alone two of them. I thought about upgrading to a new aftermarket one, but didn't feel like dropping a grand on what I wanted at this time. So what I decided to do was demolish the factory visor (I did buy a second one off eBay for $20 just in case I got carried away)



I popped the mirror off.



Used the bezel surrounding the display as a stencil and jut the fabric away.



Then after a lot of work with a knife I got the thing hollowed out. There is actually quite a bit of frame work in there. I had to mod the pivot mechanism too. But I finally cleared out enough room for the display to rest.



Because of the room I needed to clear, the pivot mechanism had to be hacked along with a lot of the support structure holding it in place. So it would still function properly I used epoxy to secure it down.



There was still a small void over the mechanism where it could still flex, so I cut a piece off the shroud that I wasn't going to use and epoxied it in place.





Because the back of the display isn't smooth and instead contoured to the back of the shroud, I cut it off and secured it in place with. . . you guessed it! Epoxy



With the display ready to go in I ran the wire harness out the side, gave it a good coat of epoxy, and wedged it into the visor for good. Then I cut the frame off of the shroud and secured it around the display for a finished look.

Re: Omelet's Build Thread!

From there I ran the other half of the wire harness up the pillar and through the hole in the ceiling.



Connected the wire and there you have it!!!





Next I installed the rear camera and secured it with the hitch lock.





After running all the wires in a tidy fashion it was alive!!! (note the Jeep is on unlevel ground)



I haven't finished the front just yet, but will get to it soon. I need to run out and get a night shot too
