Non Jeep related but my Audi came back from the auto body shop today after getting a new paint job (same original Pearl Coat British Racing Green) and a wet sand & buff job. It's beautiful. God I love this freaking car. Third picture is of the pearl coat, not dust haha.

So something totally random... I haven't had hazard lights in a while... something wrong with the relay or the switch that disables all the blinkers and hazard function when it's engaged. I've also wanted a brighter alert system for a long time for during the winter months when I stop to help winch people out of snow ditches and the like. So I invested in some Whelen TIR3 strobes for the TJ. These will be much brighter (3x LEDs per unit) and will be usable via my switch panel in the cab. The lights themselves have built in strobe programs, which require another wire to change. To make my life easier I went to Home Depot and bought a 25' extension cord to use a self-contained 3-wire cable.

The system occupies 2 switches on my switch box, one to turn the strobes on and a 2nd to control their program mode. Due to the minimum voltage of the control signal, I didn't bother using a relay, and just wired that lead straight up to the switch. The extension cord runs through the engine compartment, and then down the drivers side of the frame with the brake lines and CB coax to the rear crossmember where it ties into the lights. I had enough cord left over after the run to the primary light to make the needed 3-wire jumper to the 2nd light.

I cut the brackets that I designed out of steel from Home Depot ($6) and jacked the TJ up much alike installing a Body lift in order to get the bracket into the position I wanted. I had no desire to drill into the tub for these, so the mounts extend right in front of the tub. I installed them for the day, but will take them off tomorrow and paint the brackets black for their permanent installation.

Total costs:
2x Whelen TIR3 Amber LED Strobes *new* - $74 shipped - eBay
16 gauge steel sheet - $6 - Home Depot
3 wire extension cord - $13 - " "
Total: $93

So anyway. They're ridiculously bright... Here are a few photos of the install, and I'll post a video tonight so you can see how freakin bright they are.
