Ok so as for the writeup ... Really its not rocket science if you can use a soldering iron you good to go

Tools Needed

Solder and Soldering Iron 15-25 watt
Tape
Shrink tube
a few spade and ring connecters
Glue
16-20gauge wire
toggle switch

Ill start with the rock lights

Since they are "water proof" there is a bead of silicone over the whole roll of led's

they can be cut to any size you need by cutting after every 3 led's like so


i put a strip under each wheel and one on each side of the tub on the floor board's, they do come with 3M 2sided tape on them but its just not good enough for being "Exposed" so i also put a bead of body panel glue to hold them.

If you look close you can see the silicone and where i had to peel and cut it to get to the copper leads you will have to do this everytime you cut into strips

Step one, Measure and Cut all your strips and prep for soldering

Step two, tint all your leads and wires DON'T Try using plumbing solder use stuff like this








Step Three, attach you wires to the leads





Step Four, Attach to the location you want them







Step Five, run wires to the switch and hook to a 12v + and i just grounded all of then to the tub, ill have to get pic's of the tomorrow




Step Six, Enjoy






Real Simple Guy's

Wow Gage, those lights are so freaking bad ***!! I just ordered myself.. Been a few years since I did any LED stuff, seems like prices have come down quite a bit.. Looks great as usual, hope you don't mind me copying your idea

Nice write up man. I like your soldering technique on coating everything first. I just twist, bend and solder.

That looks great and nice write up too! I may have to copy this one

The only thing I could see being a problem is the strip in the rear wheel well. If you stuff that tire off road, you might rip those out

I thought the same thing so i tested it and it ends up the tires hit the rear of the tub first and don't get that high as seen here












I Guess it would help a little if i had bump stops on

A wire may be broken/breaking?

Ok so lets see,

the other day i went to take the jeep to the store.... No start, fiddled around a bit and changed out the fuel pump relay, pump kicked on and started up

This morning go to start the jeep No pump running Hmm well ill change the relay again yup pump kicked on and started right up. Drove it about 5miles stopped at the store came out started back up, drove another 2-3miles stopped at the ins company came out started the jeep and it stumbled and sputtered and then died WTF cycled the key No pump again , changed the relay and still nothing.

So at this point i thought fuel pump was bad, had it towed home and i started looking over things and found i have power to the relay, the relay is good ,and all the fuses are good.... But when the key is on i only have 7volts to the middle pin on the pump harness cranking i get 6 volts . Really stumped here guy's any help would be Great

Any voltage drops in the system would be caused by high resistance on the line, aka bad or loose connections or pins, bad splices along the run, corrosion in terminal lugs or pins. If you can get a meter set it to ohms and check for resistance along the line from the fuse to the pin on the pump. If your meter leads aren't long enough to do that, get a wire and ground that pin out to the chassis and put the meter lead in the fuse slot going back to the pump and ground the black lead to the chassis as well and check for resistance. Either method will work. While I don't have the schematic in front of me, I am an electrician. Just ensure power is off and look at the schematic to ensure the wiring from the pump to the fuse is properly isolated, meaning that wire doesn't T off anywhere else otherwise you'll get faulty resistance readings. If you do get a high resistance then check for bad splices and loose pin connections and clean all corrosion you find on the run. I hope that helps.
