Total Visions, Baja Camera System

The story

After a year thinking about rock spotting camera's. I was strolling the auto isle at Costco. when I noticed a licensed plate rear view camera. Cheapo 80 bucks. Momma just rolled her eyes. After the groceries were put away, I went to the garage Faux hooked it up, bent the bracket for the camera and double face taped it to the right side of the front bumper, aimed at the tire. I took the truck down the road and followed street cracks, with the screen
I located a company in Tucson called Total Vision Products. Rod and I spoke at length, about a simple four-camera rock spotting system. Three months later, the idea evolved into a Baja Camera System, which includes eight cameras, overhead console, four screens, digital switchers and a quad channel DVR with GPS Tracking. Rod designed the equipment for this system.

Camera Views Include:
Front approach & Rear Departure (wide view)
Front rock spotters, left and right tires
Rear axle camera
Roof forward facing (wide and normal view)
Rear Roof (normal view.

Driver side views will be the front approach, rear departure, rock spotters, and axle cameras. Passenger side will be all roof view cameras. The thought behind this is using the driver side screens for utility and the passenger side for trail video. Cameras selected on screens, are all recorded to a quad channel DVR. Prewire in capabilities up to eight additional cameras, with two channels of audio.

Overland Warehouse/Radflo

We are using the complete 2.5 Radflo System that they have developed. The suspension is designed with the weight of my build in mind. After having three different systems on that did not perform well, I finally have the right one. It handles flawlessly and smoothly on the road. It also handles everything I throw at it off-road. System comes complete with 2.5 coilover's, 2.5 shocks, springs for rear, sway-bar relocate bracket, extended, bump stop for rear, and they added extended sway-bar link for testing. Don't count this out as a high performing system.

East Coast Gear Supply Nitro 4.56 gear’s

After a Brief encounter with the skinny pedal, I must have chipped a gear in my stock dif. Here is the Hill where I think it happened

Chase from ECGS helped outfit Wikid, with some new teeth. They sent out rear diff third member and front outfitted with 4.56 nitro gears, in turn I sent them the cores. I would highly recommend these guys for regearing

By the time I limped home, there were 3 teeth.. ahh missing.

If you have some mechanical skills or can recruit someone with those skills , you can save some $$$$ doing the switch out , yourself.

Ricochet Skid Plates

Ricochet skid products are protecting the belly of Wikid. Brad, is excellent to work with and his skid plates are designed well. I have been abusing his skids since early 2010 with Cruise Moab, Sedona Fest, FJ Cruisers Summit and many local trails. They have been sliding rocks and still staying true to form.
Full under body skids customized with a sexy, laser cut “Wikid”
Lower control arm skids


This is a customer service oriented company that has a well designed product.
I started with the EXP rack, with a RTT. Now I have the Utility Rack, that gives me the ability to fit in my garage. I really like the new look and the construction is great. I have further plans for the rack to follow.

Doug Thorley Headers/Exhaust

Doug Thorley has outfitted Wikid, with a complete exhaust.
Long tube 304 Stainless Steel headers ceramic coated
Y-Pipe and muffler
In addition to this I had a local exhaust shop, Apache Muffler, run custom three inch tail section through the rear bumper with three inch oval tip

Here it is all trimmed up and done.

New General Grabber 315/75/16 red letters
I pulled the skids to do a front dif oil change, plus painting the rest of them.

I just installed the Camburg 1.25 uniball UCA's. What a difference in handling. I had a brand new set of All-Pro HD steering links I saved to do UCa's and links at the same time.

Then took it in for an alignment . Our local network alignment knows their stuff.
