    2001 Toyota 4Runner Rdiggidy's (Lots of Pics)

    I'll modify the text later, but thought I'd get a few pics up. The bulk of my goods came in the mail today, so I began the project:


    Step #1 Unpack:



    Step #2 Cut Plexiglass to fit in rear compartment:



    You guys might all be plexiglass experts, but I was not. So here's what I learned:
    -Leave the film on it until your done, cutting, breaking, etc.
    -For straight lines score it and break it, it's the easiest way.
    -For anything but a straight line, the best method I found was a dremmel (though there might be other ways that are just as good for this)




    Step #3 Drill holes and mount harddrive and motherboard:







    It's a start! I'll be gone for 4 days and then I start a new job on the 3rd, but my goal is to have the install finished by next weekend. I'll try to keep this post up to date. I know there are a couple other 4Runner guys wanting to see how this project works out.

    Not much time to explain, I'll do that later. But here are a few pics of what I did with a few hours I had free today:

    After this is all done I'll go back and explain some of the processes and a few things I learned and would watch out for. Right now I don't have the time.

    Also if anybody has any advise on this situation I have run into a little bit of a Problem

    Looks awesome, i also have an 01 4runner, 4wd, limited, I also am currently installing my carputer, I have everything installed now in the rear compartment in an ampie case. My lilliput screen w/TS will be getting here Thursday, damn, waiting for it seems like forever... I did however test with my regular monitor, i still have my HU with TOY-AUX PIE adapter. So far so good, except some horrible noise through the speakers, I'll have to check my grounds, i think thats what it is. Not wooried about it yet.
    Your install looks great though, i dont have the courage to take out my HU yet. Just one question though, how did you do your ground and 12v+ power line, I originally made the rear power outlet perm live and got power and ground from that, but ofter the noises and being worried about the load on the line, i now have an 8gauge from Positve on battery and ground off the closest tie down point to the rear compartment, do you think that will be ok? oh also didnt survive crank, im thinking maybe the new wiring will help that too. Look forward to more pics of your install....

    I'm waiting on 1 more amp and then my project will be done (hardware wise at least)....well, except for this one problem: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/show...d=1#post721191

    That rear power outlet is pretty tiny wiring, I don't think I'd use that. I have 4gauge wire running from my battery to under my front driver seat, where it goes into a distribution block. Then 8 gauge running from there to my amp in the back, 8 gauge to the amp in the front, and 10 gauge to the Opus power supply for the computer.

    All the stuff up front (USB hub, DVD drive, monitor), get powered from the opus, so lines have to be run all the way back up front.

    Didn't survive a crank? What power supply?

    How do you plan on mounting your screen? Are you going to pull it out of the case or leave it in? If the lilli screen is anything like the Xenarc I would do exactly what I did. I am very happy with the results and it was relatively easy.

    I don't know if it looks factory to others, but it looks factory to me
