Ridiculously Detail Amateur Radio Installation


New Member
Hi everyone,

I've done a really thorough installation of a Yaesu FT-7900R 2m/70cm (144MHz/440MHz) Amateur Radio (HAM) Rig into my 2012 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab SV 4x4. To go along with it I've put together a ridiculously detailed installation guide with probably over 100 photographs along with some diagrams I put together.

Highlights of the Install include:
  • DIY Utilitrack Style Bar in the Bed
  • Relocation of Factory Switches
  • Aftermarket Switch Installation
  • Completely Hidden Wiring
  • Underseat Radio Install
  • Custom In-Dash Control Face Install
  • Custom Fused 5x Relay Plate Under the Hood

Please check it out, hopefully it will be useful to those down the road who are doing any sort of interior electronics install. I think my Power Distribution setup should be considered for any serious modder.
