Question on Eautoworks H4 harness w/ Rampage lights

Hey guys, so I'm fairly new to DIY projects and jeeps in general and I just got a set of rampage headlights with the H4 harness from eautoworks.

I found this write-up on here and it seems pretty straightforward and not so difficult. My only question is the OP doesn't mention anything about the relays or the red wires, do you not need to worry about them because its plug and play into the existing harness or what? Thanks for the help guys I appreciate it.


Here's the write-up I planned on following:

Not sure what your question is ?

The e-autoworks wire harness is plug and play. IIRC there is a cartoon diagram on the package of how to install it.

.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

well the package is damaged a little bit and I cant quite read it. In the write up I posted the posters doesnt mention anything about what to do with the relays or the red wires. So my question is what do you do with them.

Cruiser’s Headlight Upgrade Harness Instructions


It's easy to install a supplemental headlight harness.

From the factory, the voltage to the headlight bulbs travels from the battery, inside the cabin, to the headlamp switch, and then back out to the lamps via undersized wire. It's not uncommon to find only 10.5 volts at the lamps.

The supplemental harness is installed so that it provides battery voltage to the lamps and is just triggered by the factory wiring. The result is about 30% brighter headlamps and headlight switches that don't melt and burn out.



Absolutely plug and play. Remove grille and headlamp bulbs. I fed my harnesses from the passenger side starting between the battery and the back of the headlamp housing, over to the driver side. Plug the driver side bulb into the new harness. Attach the new harness's ground wire under one of the small bolts on the radiator support after scraping the paint off under it. Attach the harness to the existing harness behind the grille working toward the passenger side. . Plug the new harness plug into passenger headlamp. Plug original headlamp plug into receptacle on new harness. Attach the ground for the passenger side just like you did the driver side under a radiator support bolt. Attach relays with provided bracket on the passenger side inner fender. Connect power wires to battery.

Lights work awesome! Such a difference, like Night and day no pun intended lol. I don't seem to be having that problem where they don't function as the normal lights did. It all works.
