Greetings,
I can't help with the install, but will be curious how you deal with the high/low beam relay that is on the original column. I have a stainless column from Flaming River (installed by previous owner) and it doesn't have a replay that is toggled by the turn indicator. Unless the unit you bought has one, please share how you get the high beams connected. Mine has an on/off button on the turn signal lever that is not connected to anything. I have asked here and gotten no response.
Thanks and good luck
J

Thanks CAD,
The folks at Flaming river said there was a relay I could buy for $50.00 but I don't have a clue where it wires to. I figured the push button was the modern version of a foot switch, and I have both wires tucked away, just with the rat's next under my dash, and my lack of electrical prowess (other than audio) I just need a little direction, like what the original relay plugged into (wire colors or something)

Will figger it out someday..

i can tell you that.. one side of the switch goes to relay.. then other side goes to headlight power.. two outputs one goes to high beam one to low beam,, sorry for the hijack. the column comes out pretty easy take the bottom dash off disconnect electric unbolt and pull out..
