    It's done, its working, thanks all. :)

    They aren't very bright though... so once I save a bit of money I may have to upgrade the wiring to a heavier gauge and the lights.

    At least I learned a lot. I feel pretty confident in doing wiring now that I know the basics.

    Wondering if a CB is a good idea for offroading communication.
