Thought this would be a fun question and may provide the opportunity to share some unique/cool mods that many don’t think of. So what’s your favorite unique mod (excluding lifts/tires/Titan swapping/etc.)? Mines probably a tie between my custom tray mount for my phone or my interior camping lights.

Tray Mount:



Camping lights:

Hard to tell in the picture but I mounted 6mm Ozium LEDs in the rear 2 dome lights (rear seat and cargo) and ran 2 switches. One on the rear D pillar and one on the B pillar. I can turn them on and off from either switch for a nice dim light when getting in or out at night while camping.

My favorite mod, though it's not unique but not what most would list as their favorite, is my rearview mirror upgrade. Went from Autodim/Compass/Temp to Autodim/Compass/Temp/Homelink. I fricking love not having to carry a garage door opener!

Tough call. The LEDs I added to the rear hatch are pretty amazing at night, especially in the winter. Interior bike rack I'm proud of since I cut/welded it myself and it is really simple for how well it works.

But I think it has to the various hide-a-key solutions I've tried. I feel WAY better doing anything in the backcountry knowing that I have a spare key hidden on my vehicle.

Being a machinist with covid lockdowns keeping me home I took some lights that were sitting on the shelf and made some extendable brackets for the back of my X. I made standoffs that thread into the rivnuts holding the roof rack on from 303 stainless. The mount is made of aluminum and painted black. It will extend about 3 inches which allows the lights to be pointed down to illuminate the campsite. With the white covers on its very soft light and uncovered very bright flood pattern. Since installation I've used them once in Death Valley. I had more fun making them than actually using them.
