    hey guys! so i bought 2x 4 pack of rock lights
    (https://www.amazon.com/Offroad-Unde...s=rock+lights&qid=1555472004&s=gateway&sr=8-4)
    then i bought two wire harnesses that have 4 leads each
    ( https://www.amazon.com/Ampper-Light...1JCGWGP6BFY&psc=1&refRID=Z1SNZAH921JCGWGP6BFY )

    my question... if i wanted to control all of these lights with one switch... can i just combine both harnesses to share one switch? also could i add more wire to any of the harnesses for more lights?

    thanks guys!

    Combined, you should be under the 40A allowed by the wiring harness. Therefor, you should be fine combining the two sets of rock lights. Check the amperage of the lights to ensure each set is less that 20A.

    each light is 9 watts so it would be a total of 72W and the harness says " The lights hooked up to this harness should be less than 150 W (totally) at the same time" so i should just add additional wires to just 1 harness? rather then to use two harnesses sharing the same switch?

    Amperage on leds are pretty low. I am sure you would be fine.

    I think it depends on the type of control. If it's Bluetooth and they're both of the same brand, I think it's possible to combine the two sets

    Anyone running an 8 pod system on their 3rd gen Tacomas? Where did you place them(aside from the fenderwell)?
