Amazon. I originally planned to swap to more standard, quality relays right off the bat, but as an experiment of sorts I intend to make sure they are very well grounded and use plenty of dielectric grease. Ill see how they hold up like that.

good deal man .. I know the relays are different in those harness .. they do sell those relays at your parts store .. which is a good thing. Just wrap them in electrical tape and make sure you put the opening facing down.. That is what I have read anyways ... You should be good

Yea, Ive heard the direct replacements are expensive but this isnt really something I wanna cheap out on either, especially since Im not currently running any aux lighting that I could use for backup.

Tore down for harness install.


Hella 80/100watterzzz


Wiring ran behind grille


Thats all the pics I have for now, Im sick as a dog and managed to get enough energy to wire these up and install new battery terminal. Im curious to see how they look at night. I made sure to ground things real well and wrap/seal up the relays as best as I could. Cycled it on and through highs and lows, everything is functioning perfect. Now we wait for nightfall...

Piss pouring rain so no shots of light output really, but from what I can tell from the driveway... Holy hell what a difference.

Oh and as a side note, big props to DBO for pulling some work on the weekend to work on customers orders even though they are usually closed. Theyve really been a great group to deal with, cant wait to get the bumper on!

My Mojave front is right there at the front.

WBR trip is in 6 days, still have a lot of things to do. So the wife tagged along today so I could flex it out and see if anything needed resolving and at least get that much out of the way.

Getting there!


Discovered two issues, both I expected. #1 is I need to go ahead and do the extended brakelines Ive been putting off. You can see in the pic above and a little below that it is maxed out. No bueno.


#2 is the inevitable. The tires just do not fit in the rear fenderwell. It is now officially time to trim.

So Ive made an effort to really take my time to make my fender trimming look somewhat factory.

First fender done. Not bad for a cutoff wheel.

Pretty impressive looking front fender trimming - can't even really tell from the pics that you've trimmed them.
