    Yeh i realized it wouldnt be a good idea to use the power outlet, so i now have 8 gauge from battery to, oh, M1-ATX p/s by the way and ground from chassis, 12v-switched to ACC. Before that i was getting ground and pos from rear power outlet and the 12v-switched to the ACC. Maybe now it will survive crank. fingers crossed.

    As for the screen, I will have some kind of mounting arm, it can then move closer to me or in front of the passenger. maybe soon i will take the HU out, but i dont plan on keeping the car for more than 2 years. Moving to spain. I love how it looks in the dash though..

    Did you get any noise? Maybe my better ground will take care of my noise, but for now just 1 more day until screen gets here, I wont be doing anything else until then.

    What gauge wire did you run from opus back to front for dvd etc..?

    Well I'm still waiting on another amp to get sound in my front 6 speakers. For now all I have is my sub hooked up, but I don't get any distortion/noise from it. I'll let you know when I get the amp hooked up if I have a noise issue.

    I grounded everything in the back (my amp, power supply etc.) to the bolt that grounds the 12v cigaratte lighter outlet in the back. I scraped away the paint from there and it seems to be a good ground.

    I ran 10 gauge for the 12v line and 12 gauge fro the 5v line (mostly because I had a spool of those two gauges and they were different coloros so I could tell them apart). You don't need that thick of wire....but then again it can never be too thick.

    Well, sweet, i got my lilli, hooked it up and it works perfectly, also audio noise has completely disappeared its crystal clear now, Upgrading the power and ground definitely helped..
    It turns on and off when its supposed to, but still not surviving crank though, its all hooked up correctly, maybe my p/s is bad?

    Any ideas? The m1-atx does come with startup/shutdown controller built in.
    I'll double check all the settings, but for now im lost..

    **** we should make a 4runner club. I'm installing in my 2001 4runner Sport Edition. I've been into car audio for a while so I know that area of things. So if you 4runner guys need any audio suggestions or need to know what will fit send me a email or a pm,

    Yes it is....

    My project is now 99% done (I just finished putting all my plastic trim on tonight)

    I'll try to have all the details and a "play by play" up by next weekend.

    Got it, thanks. The only thing holding me back was the thought of modding the bezel to get a complete OEM look. But your install looks really good and now I cannot wait to get started. Looking forward to your write up.

    Hi,
    Rigiddy, can you please list your pc components? I also have a 2k 4runner and I want to use that back storage area also, so since you found a system that fits there, I think I'm good to go
    Specifically, MotherBoard, Power Supply, FM Tuner.
    Do you have ventilation problems back there where it's right up against the sheetmetal? what did you do for ventilation?

    Thanks
