    Holy crap long night.

    Wired stuff up loosely to see how it worked..didn't at first. Spent a long long time going over and over stuff...turns out I had 3 diodes backwards :facepalm: fixed now tho and works great!! I have two bad switches tho I think. One stays on unless you single the back terminals and one won't come on unless you wiggle the terminals..so that sucks. Ill get new ones tomorrow...well..maybe if the store is open.

    Then it's just spicing in the switch power..and then running power wires...whew..

    Yea I'm going to pick up two blue torch fab battery boxes when I go duals to keep that from happening again. Cause the strap doesn't fit the battery.

    Oh..and Co2 kit comes tomorrow :woot:

    6th and final relay wired up. This will be for the hella 500s. Why? Cause then I can run 2 separate 12ga wire for each side as they will pull more power then anything

    And!! I have an awesome new way for my camp lights to mount!! Gonna be awesome. Just have to buy some stuff first. :spy:

    Co2 baby!!!!! BEST XMAS GIFT EVER!!!

    Thank you Dad! Love you tons pops :cool:

    not as big i thought it was going to be since it syas its supposed to be 36'' tall..seems more like 30..but ill take it :D

    also ran around to all the thrift stores today and electronics stores to get my cable for camp lights.

    [​IMG]

    and here is my new idea for the lights.

    im going to weld these brackes and runa bolt to hold the alum piece. Granted it won't move at all due to it being only like 1/32 from the rail.

    [​IMG]

    this will allow me to just screw them onto the bed rail when i need them :D and the will be solid mounted :cool:

    where will they go for storage? the bed rack of course :cool: the lights will be right behind the cab angled out so i can use them as rear side fills :p i bout 4 mini quick fist mounts that work PERFECT for holding them on the bed rack up out of the way. On top of that..i can use them as kind of portable lights to stick under the truck or someone elses if i ever i am on a trail and helping fix aonther rig(JON!) so..kinda turned into super mulitpurpose lights :p

    i also ordered more rock lights :anonymous: after seeing Chads on his rig..i knew 12 wouldn't be bright enough. So i order 20 and got 5 free..so..should have around 20 rock lights now i think. Plus 4-6 in the tent and 1-2 under neath it at the ladder area. Sad thing is that they were cheaper then the place i ordered from before..and they won't take a month to get here.

    Lots to do now!

    Congrats on the CO2. I love my tank for the trails. So much better than a solid mounted compressor/tank IMO. You'll love it.

    Got the Hellas wiring all done!! :woot:

    Relays and switches work perfect..however..I'm getting some arcing I think and nt all the lights will come on. One in particular seems to never want too. But some times two or three wont come on. I only got all 4 to light up once..so looks like I have to pull the harnes for those on the roof rack :eek: not sure why they are arcing. Everything is nicely sealed and in wire loom..

    However..I can say the light output is now on the verge of biblical :eek: haha

    But I get a full 2v drop though with the high beams on and the LFs and Hellas..dual batteries is basically a must now. I'm going to pick up a GM CS144 180amp alternator as well to replace the stock 80amp one. Then ill get all new wire too..basically do the big three upgrade as well and a 500amp battery relay and a yellow top optimum..sigh..money money..shit. Oh well.

    Anyways. If someone has any info on the HIDs arcing out please post up!! Thinking about running a better ground to the bed rack too..

    Think I figured it out.

    The insulation isn't thick enough on the wire I used to extend the post ballast wires is too thin..so I wrapped two of the lights wires in electrical tape like a mofo. Problem solved..sorta. As long as. Don't flip the switch super fast they come on every time..used pretty much a full roll of of tape though so that sucks haha gotta go get another one tomorrow..

    Still can't believe how bright these are..
