    Lights (overhead and underbody) Camera (rearview) Action! (Radio)2015 Dominator X 4dr

    Do you have a long weekend available and love the smell of a soldering iron? Well I found a way to live up to my name (Sir Spends-A-LOT). I installed 4 indoor outdoor speakers, 1 double din radio, a switch panel with USB access and voltage displays, Rear and overhead power access for go pro or rear fans, 20 feet of remote overhead LED lighting, an underbody waterproof LED kit, A front grill "NightRider KIT light" that also does other programmable flashes, a rear backup camera, 45AH battery to match stock, and a homemade fuse box.

    Here is the before and after on the single din factory hole to double din "offbrand" radio.

    Here is the cupholder upgrade with switches and the roll bars have holes pre drilled, just needed a couple self tap screws and zip ties.

    I took a roll of waterproof leds and turned them into ceiling lights. If you look close at the strip in my hand you will see 4 solder points. You don't need a power box or a remote system if you just want 1 color. A simple on off on switch will also allow you to switch between 2 colors. simply hook up the black lead to the +, and the POS lead to the R G B, red green blue. A simple switch for on and off. it's very low power so you don't need a realy. I just had some laying around so I used relays in mine. I hated how dark the interior is with the outer shell on or at night when I am trying to back off a trailer.

    Here is my outside LED setup. The front LED strip I drilled small holes in the grill and zip tied it in place. as I did the underbodies. I put the hood control box in a sealed up baggy and taped it shut. the underbody control box is under my relays. Here is a picture of the stock battery that isn't sold anywhere near me. Tractor Supply carries the brand, but this is straight from China. My secondary battery is a matched 45AH.

    Here is my cup holder upgrade. I put a plastic retardant on the back of the switches, then put aluminum tape doubled up to assist to deflecting heat. I installed a marine battery switch on the front of the passenger seat bottom and also shown is a USB battery port I installed in the upper right corner so if I want to mount a passenger phone up in the corner or hook a gopro inside or outside it'll be less wires hanging.

    Here are the guts. I had 4 relays and 4 fuse holders laying around and I had a small walmart tupperware container that just wanted to fit in my compartment so I made it work. this is all under the passenger seat. I cut up an old rubber floor mat for under the battery and to keep some moisture out. I am still thinking about what to use around the shell of the radio to keep a splash guard on the back of it.

    In my schematics I said yellow pos, black neg.. due to I used speaker wires for most of the electrical runs. I have a rainbow pack of electrical tape so on speaker wire the ground is ALWAYS shown aka.. the wire with writing on it. I would put yellow tape on both ends of the wire I was using for the run, then black, then red... then when I am looking at the rat nest of wires I know what goes where. I only used 12 gauge wire due to having a bunch laying around.

    the black wire on the back of the cargo box behind the battery is the charging port for my trickle charger or an outlet for a power fan.

    if you buy relays with wiring harnesses, look close at the harness. All 4 of these came in 2 packs from the same shipper on amazon. notice the blue and white flip flop? seeing the bottom left 2 blue, right 2 white are the high amperage output it makes a difference. the far left 2 white left and 2 blue right are the low amperage that comes from the switch itself. Thankfully I was double checking my runs and I couldn't, at first, figure out why the switch wire was 14GA wire and the high current line was 18GA that is when I saw this.

    Sorry about the basic pictures, I am still finishing up the project, but with Spring coming I hoped this would help at least one person. I will post more "finished project" later.

    Parts list:
    200 feet speaker wire, at least 18GA - I used 12 and 18
    4 pyramid indoor/outdoor speakers (they same with 18 gauge wire
    1 double din doesn't matter brand radio with backup camera
    4 bosch relays 4 fuses
    1 screw terminal distribution
    1 11 inch by 3 inch tupperware container
    2 pack roll of 3528 LED lights with remote
    2 pack amplifiers for 3528 lights
    20 foot 4 wire extentions
    1 10 gauge power wire from an amp kit (stock battery and secondary to marine battery selector
    45AH battery
    2 3 slot marine voltage/USB/12V port
    6 3 amp switches
    1 10 amp on off switch (can be a 7th 3 amp switch)
    1 underbody kit 2 3ft, 2 4ft
    1 18 inch KIT light from ebay
    35 amp self reset buss fuse.

    lots of zip ties, solder, and electrical tape.

    please give me a thumbs up if you like this post, also let me know if I should be more detailed on the "HOW TO" of any of this. I was making a video for YOUTUBE, these are screen shots.

    Nice setup. I'd be afraid to get it wet and dirty.

    Everything I installed is Marine grade besides the radio. I will be installing simple dust covers.
