I just use ours for trails. We tried to listen to the truckers while on the big road but some of those guys are pushing big power and a lot of them like to jabber on about a whole lot of nothing...lol

We use it on the trails, when spotting, and on roadtrips. On most major highways you will know where any speedtraps or traffic problems are way before you get there, the truckers are very good at keeping each other up on these conditions.

One warning, taking the jeep offroad into its "natural habitat" can be addicting. We were all somewhat normal once...

The snow in my trails is impassable until we get a warm spell. Should be warmer next week hopefully. This will be the first time we have ever been kept out of our trails due to the depth of the snow haha! We need some Al Gore to melt this crap...

I'm going to air down to nothing and try to float on top of the snow. Like the arctic rigs do. Lol

That was the only way I could get out this morning. I live on a private drive with maybe 10 houses and while I cleaned up early, no one else had touched it since the beginning of the storm. I was pushing snow when I opened my doors, I barely made it through.

Once the snow is passable in the trails you'll def get a chance to play with the winch. Hoping to redig the frame twister in the spring and bring it back to what it was originally. When it was originally set up it was 4ft deep with vertical walls, a rig that made it through cleanly was rare. The first day we had it set up only one rig made a clean run, close to 20 tried and they all got the hook.

Get retrace your wiring, double check your connections. Most likely there's a bad connection for that light.

You may have to install a dedicated relay and fuse per pair of lights.

Even if the relay was overloaded it wouldn't kill only one light. Either the fuse or relay would blow, or all four lights would be on but dim.
