Thanks. I'm a touring audio engineer so electricity is a common thing in my life (multiple 400 amp tie-ins per day), no explanation necessary! Thank you though. I'll look around more for lights, I just haven't found the right ones yet. For now I've got 3/4" LED markers in my TNTs as turn signals, which I will switch to the running lights and run the 2" markers as turn signals when the time comes.

Sounds good. Its really not hard to make the 2 wire to a 3 if you really want to make the 2" light a running light and turn light. I think I have some photos of it on my computer back at school. I check when I head back tomorrow.



Well today was the only day I worked on the jeep all week end. And of coarse I ran into problems. My radiator was 1/4" too low for my ram PS hose.

So i had to raise the whole radiator up and it was a *****. Once I finished that I made all the power steering hoses.





I also got my South Bend Clutch on friday. Dam this thing wasnt cheap

worked on some more hoses.
Took me awhile to figure out where the second heater hose connects to. Come to find out if you remove one of the temp switch on the side there is a 1/2 npt fitting. So i got my self a 1/2npt to 5/8 barb and it work great.


Upper heater hose


Found me a lower radiator hose.


Then I bent up a tube for my front suck down winch. Just waiting for it to come in the mail

Drew up some logic today after class. It will combined my rear turn and brake signal to one wire. It will also combined my front turn and running lights to one wire. In addition it will control my low/high fan. With the addition of lighting a red led when I switch the fan off. Then there is the Engine Fault LED, Low radiator level LED, low window wiper fluid LED, parking brake LED.
Inputs on the left, Outputs on the right

I could have used a micro controller to do most of this, but for right now I just want the fast and simple way. Later on I might clean up the relays with an IC. But for now this will do.

Yep, that ****'s over my head by a mile. My brain wasn't built to understand electronics past the basics and I've accepted that.

I made all the hoses myself. I used Russell stainless steel 6an power steering lines and then Russell hose ends. I have no idea on the lengths cause all i did is put one end on then I ran the hose, dropped the axle and cut the line. I never pulled a tape measure out once doing it. LOL

Hose - http://www.summitracing.com/parts/RUS-632640
90* end - http://www.summitracing.com/parts/RUS-620421/
straight end - http://www.summitracing.com/parts/RUS-620401
6an to 1/4npt - http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-220647B

I have some 3an hoses and fittings to do for all my brake lines.

As for the hood, tell me when I can pick it up. I have your dollar in my wallet with your name on it
