The car came with the Subaru all-weather mats, and I was pretty disappointed in them. I had Subaru mats in my wrx and they were fantastic, these not so much.

So I ordered up the Weathertech liners for front/rear. They are the exact same as the 2017 Impreza. They came in yesterday and I swapped em out, so much better!

I need to get me some WeatherTech mats, the OEM rubber mats just don't cut it for our winters.

Gotcha. Yea full floor coverage is always a plus to me. I got the fiance similar stuff when she got the Sorento. Been really happy with them.

Got the main piece of the next project in the mail on Saturday

Ive gotten tired of running individual switches into the car every time I add an another accessory. It adds up to being a lot of wire being ran and individual switches all over the cabin, especially after running out of the blank slots on the drivers side dash.

I got this S-Tech system from Team Tech Offroad located in Colorado. Ill be making a bracket to mount the 6 switches below the HVAC controls. I might make another bracket for under the hood to mount the power block as well (unless I can get lucky and it will mount to two existing bolts, but I doubt it lol).

So here is the system, i just wired up 3 of the 6 toggle switches to get a feel of it.


Here are the switches I got. Dual LED so they will be partially illuminated while off and fully when switched on. All of them are red colored to match the Speedo/Tach. I got 4 of them labeled for the future plans, and 2 blanks as im not sure what i would want to fill them with yet

That's kinda neat.

You get 6 switches that feed into one fat cable that goes into a box with fuses and relays?

Yup.

So now to power an accessory, I only have to run 1 wire for the power (to the distribution block), the other end just needs to be grounded wherever that accessory is.

I originally wanted an S-Pod that is basically the same thing, but instead of all the single cables (as 1 big one) going into the cab, they made it all work with an ethernet cable. But that system is over double what I paid for this... so...

Ethernet cable is clever.

Could probably do something similar with 9 conductor speed wire.

I just hate wiring in general. So this was simple enough for me

hehe.

Ive been thinking about putting in an ARB single tank compressor where the spare tire should go (I took it out since its pointless).

They are rated to fill a 35" tire in about 2 minutes
The dual tank ones are baller and I think you can run air tools off of them. But its more than I want to spend, and space might be too tight for it.
