Front Lights on Trojan Grill

I have some regular Hella 500 lights on my trojan bumper. It recently hit me - "Hey, how do i turn these on?" and then I realized they weren't connected at all. On my older jeep I used to run all these extra lines off the battery, but I find that solution is a pain in the ARSE and not quite as clean as I would like. Did any of you add aftermarket lights? Did you create a whole seperate panel of relays & fuses? Circuit Breakers? Has anyone checked out some aftermarket fuse panel for adding more components nice and cleanly? Any pics?

Joe

Joe,

We added a few lights.....

...and here is what we did for switching and a panel.

We are very happy with the results.

there are two parts: the switch panel:


and the relay box under the hood (in the open position):


you can see alot more details in my gallery.

Sportsmobile vs Jeep?

It says designed for Jeep - was there any proprietary jeep issues when installing this sPOD system?

Not at all Joe.
In fact the owner made us a special 9foot cable to reach above the windshield. he did this for me as well as myriad myriad (Jeff). He can customize the system for different uses. Worth every penny. There is another post about this that I did a writeup on- use the search. Feel free to ask me any more questions.
