After looking around and finding nothing that suits my standards for a solid one piece relay/ fuse terminal combo, I found Dave who makes them with OEM parts, epoxy and quality. I plan to run two lightbars on a few separate circuits for spots, floods etc- body lights, under hood lights, reverse lights, power outlet under the hood... and the list will add on and on over time.
Agreed, you can piece together radioshack parts, or go with any number of other bussman type DIY setups, but you won't find this part anywhere but this group buy. this will be made with OEM type epoxy and molded plastic, not plug together parts.
Here's an example of what it'll look like-
The relay we're buying will have prewired:
- EIGHT 40 Amp relays, rated for constant 40A use, all 12V+ switched
- One of these 8 powers Four separate fuses
- 7 relays control 7 seperate fuses (one each)
- SIXTEEN total fuses:
Four 20A fuses switched from 1 relay
Four 20A fuses wired for constant 12v power
Eight 30A fuses protect all 8 relayed circuits.
- Main battery input will be 3/8" stud type terminal block to handle 100% capacity of the whole terminal
- One switched 12V+ input from engine on controlling one relay to 4 fuses (or your own switch)
- Seven 12V+ inputs controlling the other seven relays
- One common relay ground
- Seven relay outputs 12 gauge wire leads 12" long
- Eight fused outputs 16 gauge wire leads 12" long
(4 constant hot, 4 hot only with key on)
Group buy ends March 1st
payments taken over the phone to him or PayPal at the end of the group buy after price break is determined.
20+- $334 each
11-20 panels- $358 Each
1-10 panels- $378 Each
The price breaks may go lower if we get enough interest.
Yes. it's pricey. hopefully we can get it lower.
My justification here:
- I just dropped $35,000.00 on my Tacoma. Trying to save $100.00 on a vital setup component is a bit like using a ziplock as a rubber. It'll probably work... hopefully...
What's spending less than one percent of the value to do it right?
- I know the importance of laying solid groundwork before expanding- nothing more *facepalm* than having your $500.00 light bar setup melt the $5.00 ebay chinamade relay and (in my case) start a wirefire along with it.
- This unit will very likely cover every new circuit you plan to run SAFELY and SIMPLY to avoid your octopus orgy wire job and save you from running hot power through your in cab switch.
- nothing's more satisfying than a clean, neat wiring setup you never have to touch again.
Hopefully these images embedded correctly, and hopefully we can get over 25 & help everyone out. anyone?
