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.

    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?
