Default 1999 Sandblazer Build

Umm Sandblazer is the truck name, not sure I will be
doing sand dunes, but I live in the desert and thought
it sounded better then xxxxxxxxxxx..Lol

So I wanted to replace all parts that show wear or are worn already.
Then the fun stuff like light bars, lift kit etc...I will start soon.

Only a few pics so far since most work done under truck.
I put the Sandblazer badge on rear window
and the windshield logo will go on when the window
tint is done in a few weeks.

So far just under $ 2,000 between June 10 & June 15

Started on the fun stuff, scheduled install of my Kenwood receiver, 4 Alpine speakers in the doors and my Pyle amp to be installed on Thursday.
I did manage to get the original untouched factory trailer wiring hooked into my LED Bow tie hitch cover today.

That is a nice looking head unit. I bet it sounds way better with that and the alpine speakers.

Could not find a rocker panel housing or pod
for how I wanted it to mount so I made my own.

Got the LED light bar mounted to the bull bar.

Figured out where to run the harness into the cab.

I am going through the antenna grommet, on passenger
side floor/firewall section inside the cab....just took
a very bright led light and a screw driver to figure
out where it came out on engine side fire wall...but I see
where now...Lol

It is close to exhaust pipe, so I am going to pick up
some type of insulation to wrap around harness for
that small section.

I ran it down along and under a/c housing to the antenna
access hole into the cab.

Installed my custom made rocker panel housing.

Got my rocker switches pre-wired and run taps off the Positive
and Negative new harness for rocker panel power, ..USB dual charge / Volt Meter LED rocker ..and the amp power off wire ready for it's rocker switch.

I got the rest of the rocker switches & light bar harness run.
All switches and lighting work and no disasters.
