auxillary truck lights

8 posts in this topic

I'm looking to install a pair of lights under my bumber on my truck. I used to have an old ranger and without question I had everything wired off the battery instead of the fuse box. Now I have a brand new chevy 1500 and i would like to do things the correct way. How does a guy go about connecting to the 12 volt power? Anyone have a similar set up?

If you want to be able to turn them off just run a wire to the cab and to a switch. Then run a wire from you fuse panel to the switch. You can always put in a inline fuse if your worried about shorting out. Pretty simple to do. Shouldnt affect your pickups computer.

I recomend you add an in-line relay and wire it to a seperate switch. This will prevent many problems.

theres nothing wrong with running off the battery i run with alot of 4 wheeling clubs and thats the way alot oif pros do it. just remember an inline fuse! thats all you need and you can turn them on with out the key.

I want to run it through one of the fuse panels, but I wanted to know how to go about doing it. I'm not sure if its a simple procedure or not.
