OK quick opinion poll: I just got these relays and I'm wondering if I should pop out the wires and upgrade them or just skip the harness altogether and use female spade connectors? I kinda like the tidiness of the harness but, if it's just going to give me problems down the line...

Me, I like the looks of the harness, can you tell what guage the wire is? I'm guessing 14 guage here.

Remove the wires and solder 12 awg to new connectors and reinsert them into the socket.

OK thanks guys, the wire is actually only 16 gauge but there's definitely enough room for 12 gaugers. Just wanted to make sure nobody else did this, bought the tee-shirt, then burned it with napalm.

Finally got around to doing this mod! Very impressed and happy with the results.

You can get ford fan relay harness's, they fit standard realys and are beefy. You can get the realys and the harness's at NAPA. I used them for my elec fan install so they will hold some juice.

Great mod BTW!

update , relays are junk , you are better off building your own , i was impressed at first , also the relays are not an easy find to replace , i found what looks to be the same for $12.95 shipped , hope this works , I will be building a new harness my self in the future , on the plus side , the auto-pal headlights are pretty nice for the price
