    Last Friday I was finally able to install a few new goodies I had setting around the house. Bought a CREE 20" LED light (from mikevee), a fuse box, a breaker, and a custom fuse panel mounting plate made by Yotamac.

    Still to come and still working on at home, is a new grill, raptor style. Bought the mesh from Homertaco a few months back, just taking me some time.

    Y'all need to fire your wiring guy :anonymous:
    :spy: check out skygear boxes, they are waterproof with relays. They're not cheap though.

    I looked at these and was interested, but i got the fuse box, breaker and plate for just over $100. I like the way it turned out, plus mine is water proof as well, not a good, but water proof.

    Sandman,
    I was looking at the above link,
    But I'm not that smart,
    5 relay 10 fuse box, is the one I am looking at.
    What other options I need for my set up.
    I will probably add a light bar similar to RaleighTaco.

    What do I need to get?

    If you want everything to turn on seperately you need a relay for each item. Think ahead too, winch, bed/under hood lighting, ejector seat, air compressor. I wouldn't go as far as getting the circuit breakers, fuses will be fine for lighting. It might be a little overkill for a 2wd, but it's a clean setup!
    A 6 circuit Blue Seas box would suffice. Actually those leds together don't pull that much amperage, we could probably put them all on a 10-20 amp fuse.

    Careful with the clearance with that mesh - I've heard of a few folks having issues with the space needed to mount the light bars behind that style mesh.
    Essentially a raptor has less clearance behind it than a stock grill.

    Remember, I'll install for free. Can do the complete build on site too.

    If you do a blue sea, put it under the dash like they were built for. Plenty of room there for them.

    Can do a wiring party. Recently, I got the wiring and fabricating of a mount down to ~2 hours. Just installed 2 today.

    Y'all need to take off work, or at least take a half day next Friday. We're meeting Eddy and the Nam guys in Carthage.

    Can ya spell Tonneau

    Dunno if you want used OME's Mall crawlers don't like em mutch cuz they aren't tall enough. Those who have them beat them up pretty good. Save your $ and buy it new, they are really reasonable. I think Paulo said he had a good deal, and Sandman just had an awesome warranty experience.

    I bought used Icons from NJ. Take it from me, don't buy anything north of the salt belt. The corrosion on em is just scary.
