Added the Rough Country spacer and shackle lift kit! All aligned and ready to go. I just received my yearly bonus for work so I will be putting about 1/2 of it into doing a couple of prep mods:

1. Relocating the PS reservoir
2. Plumbing in a heat exchanger off the outlet heater hose

In preparation for a on-board hot shower and dual battery setup.

For the hot shower I have to find a local holding tank, luckily I live right next to a Camping World. And then I'll work on the plumbing. The tank will either be in the under-floor cargo or in the spare tire void!

Finished Plumbing the Heat exchanger

Wow...not easy to do in the small space.

I originally had planned on bolting the exchanger to the fuse box, more for stability than anything else (See pics) However, in doing so the angles from the heater and return nipples were too sharp and kinked the hose lines. Currently working on fabricating an angled strap to hold the exchanger in place, but here it is for now!

Working fabbing up the junction box for my rear hatch switches which will eventually power my Water Pump, OBA, Overhead lights and possibly two or three more items.

The switch panel is from here:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The fuse box is :
https://www.amazon.com/MICTUNING-6-C.../dp/B07FT1Z4MS

Relays are just standard 30/40 amp rated automotive fuses.

I plan on fabbing the junction box out of ABS, glueing the box behind rear passenger panel and then the cover will go on over the top, flush with the rear panel, that way the switches and vent/viewing window is easily accessed, but looks stock.

Thanks!! Still on the way!! I've finished fabricating the tank frame and adding the fittings. The plumbing is going to be a bit expensive, so I'm holding off for a bit.

Just finished constructing and wiring up my rear switch panel and fuse/relay box and got it installed! I have not installed the second battery yet (setup is sitting on the floor waiting for my friend who wants to help) but once it is installed i'm planning on running 2 AWG leads to the rear following the OEM wiring bundle.

Are those custom brackets for the PC 1200's?

Added the water tank. The cage is bolted through the body in the front and back, and a middle brace will be added to bolt through the frame rail. I can currently hang off the cage without issues, without the middle brace, but I prefer to overbuild my setups.
