Re: jlewissystem's Build Thread

Is there even a more fun part of this "MOAR FUN PART"? Yes - relays, fuse and wire management....

First up - fuse block! For whatever dumb-luck reason....both of the nuts stripped on the main battery leads on the fuse block, when test fitting. I had to drill them out and use similar machine screws/nuts to replace. I found a neat little spot next to the OEM fuse blocks and drilled a screw into the bottom right mounting hole, on the fuse block. This is more of a "finished" pic(with cover on), but you get the idea...


Knowing i needed 5 relays, i tried to think of a decent place to display, access and manage them. I picked the spot next to the battery. behind the driver's side headlight:

I cut some metal off of an old FIPK heat shield to use as a "relay mounting panel":


I cleaned up the edges, drilled mounting holes, touched up with bed-liner and attached the relays:


Sweet! It even kind of looked 1/2 good I was happy with it....now to get some wires on those things......here are the switch wires(red) and the power wires from the fuse block. Again, everything is labeled for different amperage(fuses) and devices....only need to do devices...


That being said....i need MOAR devices.....on to light mounting and wiring!
Knowing i wanted to have 4 devices up top, i needed 4 sets of wires. I've seen people take their wires through the weather stripping, but I needed some consideration:
I have 2 devices that will require less watts - D2's and XMAS lights - so i can use less gauge - 18awg
I have 2 devices that will use 55W each, so 110W for each wire - 16awg

Putting these together makes for a hefty run, so i split them up. First i ran both sets to the same place under the hood to the driver corner:

This is where they split. i took the 18awg to the left, under the "cabin filter cover" and ran it up UNDER the UNDERNEATH of the weather stripping. i see other guys putting it on the top portion of the weather stripping, but i didnt want any chance of future leaks, so i went for "the under"

I would run this the full length of both doors and come up through the factory hole int the corner:


I grabbed these wires, measured and tapped into the D2 harness:

Ran them to the lights, put on conduit/electric tape and ziptied it up:



Pay no attention to the extra piece of conduit laying up there....looks horrible..



I just left the extra wire lead up in the conduit to attach at a later time....i did the same thing on the other side....exactly.....only difference is that i had to check for CLEARANCE!!!

LIKE A GLOVE!


Now that we know they fit, i can actually wire them up



Back to the HOOD!
All devices are now present and accounted for - all positive wires are run to the relays and all grounds go back to the fuse block:

Finalized the relay panel with electric tape, even painted the screws, mounted (screwed into (just under) pinch weld) and labeled relays accordingly (matching the fuse block).

Re: jlewissystem's Build Thread

Finished organizing and ziptying everything together (testing along the way) and hooked up the battery leads.....nice N pretty I'm REALLY happy with how all this turned out.




OH MAN am I excited - MOAR LYTES at the power of my fingertips

Rock lights:


Front upper HID's (roof lights)


With lows and fogs and rock lights:


My lows are XenonDepot's 5000 kit - pure white - i love them!
My fogs are some eBay HID's i bought early - i actually dont mind them....they're a little more blue, which i prefer to yellow for fog, so it works out.
My highs are OEM!!!! WTF!??!?! Coop, where are these new HIGH's? They'll be coming shortly....cant have any "yellow'ish" light in there.....GOD!!

I'll get some better light output and general light pics, but I'm VERY impressed with all roof lights! The EagleEyes shine out to 500yds!!! I can see tree detail a 340yds, which impressed me....and I'm putting 2 MOAR of these suckers on it - i think we can insert a BOOYA here. It's not a Rigid 30, but i def like them. There's always room to add
This pic is concentrated at about 30-40yds:

BRIGHT!!!!

This one is 340yds. This pic doesnt do it justice....in the pics, you can barely see the trees, but in person you can. I also didnt have them adjusted.....i pointed them up a little more to get the sweet spot at about 200-330yds, to view nature of course


With fogs on:


The rear D2's are AWESOME! It's an instant (LED) pure WHITE light, which goes over 100yds. The below pic is ranged out to 84yds. Again, doesnt do it justice:


Another one in the neighborhood:



More pics to come for sure!!! Enjoy and support MOAR LYTES!!!

Up next for me is:
*2 MOAR LYTES
*SRT Pedals (Spring)
*Tinted tails (spring) possible new LED
*Red header wrap for intake (spring)
*New filters for intake
*Extended rear bumpstops (purchased)
*Maybe 1" spacers on lift....
*FlyingRyan PCM tune(SOON)

I'm currently rocking the canned 91 with FlyinRyan's TCM and throttle body

A few of the latest shots:
