Any more pics specifically showing the shell on? From back?
Not currently. I'll be doing a walk around video once it is complete. Lots of little things I'm working on to get it set up for our first big trip coming up fast. There will be a video from today posted to our youtube at some point shortly that will have more angles of the top.

Broke in the 4wd drive today.
Impromptu day trip found some amazing views just a short drive from home.
I love Utah! You are a very lucky person my friend!
Is that the Alu-Cab canopy? Is this from a Colorado?
Thanks>

I actually got it off a Brute so no idea what else it fits. It's a really low serial number.

Cool!
A week or so ago I ordered a black one for the Gladiator. It should come in in January or February. I got a couple of the extras with it so I’m stocked to see how it comes out!

That alucab fits older Toyota pickups. 88-92 if I recall.

Looks good though! Glad it worked out.

Any chance you could do a write up on how you ran the wires? What gauge etc?

For the distance you want 10ga.
When you pop the cover off there are four square holes that the factory inverter plug screws into. You need to cut out the hole to outside of the holes to fit the plug. Some trimming of the thumb screws that hold the plugs in is required to fit this new enlarged hole. That piece cut out is in the picture above.

After that it's just a matter of ziptying to the factory harness that runs toward the front of the truck and following it to the battery. Here I used ring terminals to hit the main battery and one of the grounding studs near the fender. Used a 40amp fuse near the battery to boot.

Look forward to your driving experience with the 4.88s & 37s.

We had Derek install 37 Nitto muds on AEV Borah wheels.

Like your build!

Good video! Answered the questions I would of had. I was looking at 4.88s for ours down the road, your video confirmed it.

If you get a chance to make a video of your phone/tablet mounts, that would be interesting.

Safe travels
