Yeah I've never relayed any of my lights. Don't really understand the necessity too.... I have them just with the inline fuses they came with

I think it was a combo of tailwind and down hills that did it coming back

I use the small metal shackles. They are more expensive but are a lot stronger. I use them an all the bracelets I make as well. Here is the link where I get all my supplies.

interesting. I have four 55 watt lights that I need to mount and I was dreading the idea of doing all the wiring with the relays. The damn prefab wiring kits cost too much so I was going to just figure out what parts I needed and go at it.

if you arent using your stock fog lights you can use those wires, botta bam. just make sure you have an inline fuse like Mike mentioned. Although relays are alot safer, i dont think they are that big of a deal unless your drawing LOTS of power, i could be wrong, but my jeep still runs and the lights still work and i havent had any blown fuses or anything

There is a new thread that just came out about painting the interior. Awesome thread. I'm doing it sometime soon and it's me DD also. So look on the new thread under the TJ thing. It says something like "don't like ur plain interior? CHANGE IT!!!" Something like that. Very informative

yall want a cheap mod, it didnt cost me anything to break my windshield

how to make a tj manly.... idk, how bout shattering the windshield your self, while doing manly things like taking a Sawza to your windshield mounted lights because the bolts are rusted on..... sounds like a good manly idea to me... lets look at the outcome
benefit, i got them off in about 5 minutes

and my jeep had chandeliers for a lil bit

thats one of the broken lights, if i remember right it was the tree that got in the way of my jeep...kinda

4 lights that need to be off, plus sawza, equals broken windshield
