Lets See Those Extra Lights n Mounts...

I need more lights. I have a surf rack I put on for the season which will be coming up soon and when it's on the jeep my head lights are blocked. Also, when I go mudding the lights get covered so I want to install some extra lights. I would like to see what you guys have done and how you like them. I also would like to know who you guys ran the wires from the lights to the inside switches.

Since I didn't send any pics of the mounts in the pm, here you go


(The mounts aren't pretty, but they work, and they cost me 45 minutes of time. )

The wiring is run under the windshield weather strip, and then down to the relay wires.

Later, T.J.

For power, I like to use a relay with just a trigger ground wire going to the switch. that way only an 18 ga. wire that is a ground needs to run into the tub for the switch.

See: The Bosch Relay Unraveled for wiring schematics.

I also use dedicated grounds for each light. The stock Jeep ground straps are only rated for the stock Jeep things, adding lights or a big stereo need added grounds.

I like these a lot. They throw off a tremendous amount of light that I need at night. No back spill or anything to reflect off the front, except maybe snow.
