    Well for starters, trying to get all outlets in one area on one circuit. Second trying to figure out hot I'm going to wire two extra light circuits of of existing circuits without popping the fuse. I''ve got extra light's I'm installing and where I anticipated installing them, well it wont work because the amp draw is to much so Ive got to come up with another plan.

    You're right there is an extent. I think I've reached it. BTW I'm talking about home wiring. I'm in the process of fixing all the fucked up shit in our house and one thing is there are multiple outlets and light's that aren't wired to code. I've spent more on drywall and 2x4's the last month than you have on your grill and headlights probably.

    But if it makes you happy, I'm working on a schematic of how to wire up the gray wire mod where it works like it should and with a flip of a switch and a press of a button you have a bypass.

    Gray wire mod is a mod that is for the pre 2005 Tacoma's (Shamefully stolen form CT)that allow one to bypass the 4lo and under 5mph engaging of the rear locker. Cut the gray wire and short it to ground and you can engage it in 4hi, 4lo, and 2hi. I'm working on adding a switch where instead of shorting to ground it runs to a switch where you can either select it for normal ops as per factory or bypass it.

    Thanks Harrelsen!:cool:

    Fog lights are going behind the Satoshi in the next few weeks. I got to save up. They're like $215.00 a kit. But it includes everything
