    Not going to use them since I have the fox stuff on there now. The springs are brand new, the shocks are the ones Randy had when he got his Kings.

    Ditch lights are a fairly basic circuit. I have a light bar/driving lights hooked up to the switches that came with the kit. Run the leads through the firewall at that blowout plug near your steering wheel and just spaghetti that mess in your engine compartment then constantly complain everytime you open the hood for 4+ years telling yourself that one day when the weather cools off that youll build that aux power panel that youve been sitting on some parts for. *heavy breathing* ... Its not like I speak from experience or anything.

    To give you an idea of what I was looking at building when I get the time to sit down and do it on top of the multitude of other projects around the house. And then theres the kids.

    https://ceautoelectricsupply.com/custom-relay-panels/

    Edit: if you want to see what got me started on the idea of building an Aux panel and what youll potentially be getting into, browse through this threads first few posts.

    Wiring is easy. Making it look nice is the hard part.

    What? The custom relay panels or that Aux Power panel thread? Basically, I want all of my aftermarket and future after market equipment to be completely isolated from my vehicles power system. The 100A or 150A Bluesea resettable breaker between the battery and the panel will ensure that I dont overdraw my system. Having all my relays in one spot will make changing them easier. Ill probably go with one of those Littlefuse 60 or GEP 72 for the micro fuses and relays to keep things neat and tidy in the engine compartment. Bus bars for easy reconfiguration as well as setting it to have switched power on ign, in case I forget and leave a component on when I shut the truck off. Dont get me wrong, it's not going to be cheap to do a custom build like that as the initial tool buy-in can be pricy with hydraulic battery terminal crimpers. You might be able to rent this tool from your local auto parts store, I haven't checked. If you're looking at tidying up your connections, Weatherpax connection kits are pricy as well but they are weather proof. It all comes down to how crazy or professional looking your install could be. I'm an aircraft mechanic by trade but I dont specialize in sparky work but its not that difficult. I know how to run a fluke meter, and use a heat gun, own a few crimpers but theres still a few tools I need to source before I start.

    Ill still need rolls of 10g and 18g wiring in different color. You dont need to get too crazy like what that other post OP used with fancy colors, just Red and Black. If your labling is on point, there shouldnt be much confusion after everything's said and done. All devices running on 10g wire and all switches to relays on 18g. Red for power, black for grounds. You could do green for lights/leds but that would be more wire you have to purchase. I'm thinking at least 200', maybe 400' of wiring in both colors. A variety of eye and y terminal ends in both gauge ratings. Seems like a lot, but ill put a parts list together before I kick off the un-spaghetti party. Might want to pick up some 1/4 or 5/16 black ABS plastic sheeting for the base. I feel like I'm rambling here, so I'll cut this short-err..

    :laugh: like the fella from family guy hahaha

    I’d definitely look at the ones like you posted.. I had no clue those things could be so expensive- I’d love to hold the dewalt one just to see how they justify that price

    Like I said, your local auto parts store might have them in their tool rental program. They might be under battery cable/terminal crimpers. That would be nice if they floated them in their stores, Home Depot that is. I'm sure it would be a high theft item sitting shy of 4g's for a 1 use item. Lol.

    Edit: Ill probably end up getting this one when it comes time to make my Aux Power Panel: https://www.amazon.com/TEMCo-Hydrau...aulic+crimper&qid=1561336848&s=gateway&sr=8-7

    After doing a little bit of research, this one has a more uniform crimp. Downside, is it will only crimp copper terminals, my guess is due to the softer metal. Ill have to do a bit more research on the benefits between copper vrs aluminum terminal ends. I'm guessing that copper wire to copper terminals would have less corrosion potential.

    I know I already missed the scottalot likes train so I know he will miss this edit.
