I don't remember IXOS connectors. Googled them and they look pretty t*ts.

I agree about slack. Anything that might need to be serviced in the future and would be easier if it were moved 12"... will have at least 12" of slack.

Got some more work done in the truck going to update the first post in a few but here's how the electronics box turned out after adding the PDC reverse cam box/wiring. Accidentally ran an extra ground down in there as the Avin had the video in motion ground back there so I had pre-run one to the box. This unit has it up front at the head unit so I grounded it up there and I just tucked the extra one by the PDC and wrapped it up. Won't have to go back down in there again. Hopefully. Happy with the mostly OEM(ish) look to the wiring though.
