I finally talked some sense into the owner of a 110 and sold him on finally going with a light bar.

He had asked me about it before and never went through with it. So one day I get a phone call and pulled the trigger on it. Oh man this is cool, I thought to myself.

So last Saturday he drops off the truck at my house and gives me the keys. I go to town with it.

Of course I test out my trailer behind it.

Posted Image

I got back to work and took some before pictures.

So here are the new toys.

I had to weld on a light tab in the rear passenger side since it only had one for the rear ladder on the driver side. And up front I use the existing light tabs and make it work.

While the paint dries I start the front.

Started with some aluminum diamond plate I have laying around. Grabbed some hardware and drilled some holes in the plate.

Went to the back and started the instal there next.

Next is to run my wires into the truck and get the power to a switch and battery with a relay.

At this time I don't have a switch for the lights but that's the last thing I need to finish the instal. So I had the owner find something he likes.

Jokingly I told him to get these for the rear.... I think he might at some point.

Posted Image

I had my hands full. At some point in this trucks life it was in the hands of some who had no idea what wiring is and how it works. Everything 12volts was opened up and tapped into. Some with labels and some with fused grounds. Why would you fuse a ground??? There was a dual battery setup with an isolator that wasn't wired up correctly and had one battery with 12.2 volts and the other was at 4.5volts.

Posted Image

Stuff that came out and never went back in.

Posted Image

So as I was digging into this grave I found more problems that stopped my instal. So it was late. What starts as a cool idea turns into a mess.... Nothing will stop me from going forward.

I don't quit when it gets dark either.

I noticed the gauges were barley noticed. So I LEDramfied that to. No dome light .... we need to change this around.

Posted Image

I got my wire diagram for my lights on line and this works the best for me.

Day two was another day with electrical.

Got the battery and wiring done cleaned up things and made everything that didn't work to work now. Rear wiper didn't work, fog lights were only on when the high beam was activated, CB was wired funny, things like that.

No dome lights was a big issue for me. If I can't see in my car at night ,we have a problem.

Before and after...

Day three the switches arrive and they are getting installed.

Posted Image
Posted Image

A test fit is required to make sure things fit. Using what I am given I drill a small centered hole to located my mounting points. Fits perfect and I can use up the entire location for 6 switches total.

Using a hot knife to cut my holes without a mess.

And now I have everything pre wired and ready for the final instal.

When you decide to buy one Mark let me know... I have one at my house for sale. The owner never picked this up. So it's mine.

Sounds like a plan. How about I come up tomorrow night and see what we can work out?
