January 27, 2012Ok guys heres my story...Im fixing to order a brushguard and I found a pair of 100 watt Angel Eye lights for like 60 bucks and I was hoping to get some input on the proper installation of the job. I asked a guy that works 3rd shift at my place of work and he said the way it used to be done was simply taking one end of the wireset and wiring it to the battery terminal and going about it like that and he said that these days hes heard of people just connecting the wire to a fuse in the fusebox but I am hoping to get some advice from you guys on here. Thanks!
January 28, 2012To do it correctly you should put a fuse, switch and relay in the circuit.It can be done without them, but there are good reasons for all of them one of them being to protect the circuit from overheating and causing fires.

My OBS has two posts on the back of the fuse box. They have 50 amp maxi-fuses that are great for lights... I tapped a main off of that and ran it to a relay... I also ran a back bone power line off of this post to a fuse block under my dash... I use this as my trigger power to feed the switch. This line runs back out to the relay for the switched feed. there is also a 12 volt out to the light and a ground at the relay. Once you have the light mounted, ground it and you should be good. This may be the long way but it is as close to factory as I could get and it keeps the high amps out of the cab...
I will try and get some pics up since the galleries are blown out and all my pics are gone

January 30, 2012Its an 06. I just need easy step by step instructions,theres an accessories shop on the outskirts of my town that said they could do it for like 35-40 bucks which sounds pretty good but I was wondering how they might go about doing it w/out actually asking them directly.
