      lmao. The truck belongs to my brother. I'm the person installing it all. Trying to convince him to install a second 10.4" screen in the overhead to run a FrontEnd instead of that pos stereo he has.

        I bet you could sell him that monitor for the logs unless he's running two books. Shouldn't be too difficult to make 4 buttons to log time heh. Push button type in reason. Anyway he's going to love it regardless.

          Well the Icalator isn't working. Its supposed to allow the power from the alt go into the Alternator port, and out the B1 and B2 ports, but its supposed to allow the B1 port to allow power to go back through to the alternator port and thats it... the b2 port is supposed to be completely isolated away from each other. Its not! So we must take that back. We have two days left... well one... We gotta install the computer tomorow and get the power issue fixed! The inverter is installed, but not turned on yet. since were having problems.

            Ok, the truck is back. My brother has installed the computer quite nice in his truck. The screen is mounted insanly perfect! The huge watercooled tower is mounted behind the driver seat.

            We have some more things to install. The Cobra CPI2550, DLink ANT24-1500 15dBi Antenna.

            The antenna... well its flippin huge! Its atleast 8ft tall! The Inverter is sick! I love it! Will take photos in the daytime.

              Ya, I always wanted to do a truck install in one of my dad's semi trucks (dump trucks)..... wasnt practical though since they only travel locally and it gets real dirty in the cab...... but this seems badass.... good luck with the install..... the system does seem a bit overkill though lol

                  My brother designed it with overkill on the inverter, so the inverter will never really work to its max potential, thus preventing fire damage. The inverter and antena is installed, but not fully bolted down just yet. I'm on the x64 truck system right now to type this message.

                  Photos will be taken tomorow, sorry for not doing that today. the camera turned out to be dead so its charging now.

                    Well photo shooting didn't turn out like I'd planed for today. Wasted the entire day looking for hardware to mount the inverter and the antenna properly to the truck.

                    Sorry!

                        And after we pluged up everything, the computer seemed to had a problem. Now we need to reinstall Windows. So we tried to do a repair first, well you can see for yourself how that went...
