A light thread? Mind if I play?







I CANNOT WAIT to drive this thing again. It's been in the shop forever so I've been living vicariously through all the forum stories!

Right... Go to any autoparts store and buy an *Add-a-Circuit* or *Add-a-Line* similar to this:

Hey Janster, I was in the middle of working on a detailed how-to article for wiring up after market lights when I saw this post. I almost spewed my drink across the room when I saw the picture. At first glance it looks EXACTLY like the picture I took of my wiring for the article. We did it exactly the same way using the same fuse slot and fuse tap. BTW, my article is here:

I basically have a choice of either running the lights or the stereo. There's a good chance that my alternator will up and leap from my truck one of these days!

I have to give credit to my husband for that. I was working 3rd shift at the time and he did it for me while I was sleeping. Great minds think alike.

Seriously! I took 1 picture with the flash and was in-line with one of the lights. It's blinding in the picture, so regardless of the laws I'll be covering these things while on the road. Otherwise I'll be making a lot of enemies when people in the opposite direction have their headlights on. (Jersey requires the covers anyway)

The center 2 lights are HIDs while the remaining 4 are 100w each. (stuff gets expensive so this was a compromise between amperage draw and cost) The outermost 2 are angled slightly outward for some peripheral light when offroad. Each pair is controlled by its own switch so I can adjust based on conditions, alternator health, etc. I also converted my headlights to hi/lo HIDs.

Between all that I'll be damn close to turning night into day down in Mexico!
