Installing LEDs on a 110
Posted 11 January 2014 - 07:10 PM
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.
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.

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.
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.
Stuff that came out and never went back in.
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.

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...

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.
