That works. I think I'd run the wires through the console under the shift module cover up to the backside of the hvac area. You could pull from the cigarette lighter power source, then it'd be key on hot. Downside I guess is it'd always be on with the key, unless you put a switch in... Just an idea.

its in the always hot plug, but the plug in has a master switch to turn the whole thing off, then each section has a switch to turn off individual parts

my key on hot has both my amps on it and my gps, I don't want to over load it

that bank really simplified it, I really didn't want to start a project like that within a couple of weeks before I psc'd to korea ya know. I have more lighting planned and the bank comes in handy. I may down the road when I get back to the states wire it into the headlight switch so the lights come on with the headlights

they suck in the rain and snow, and they don't hold the road to well when pushed in the dry. they also wore out too fast, but again my driving style lol. I burned a set in 6 months from 80% tread life to about 10%
