Mrs Piggy

Installed a second battery box in the FZJ, first step in a dual battery setup. Also during the mysterious search for the short in my driving lights I decided to move them. No luck in finding the short though, still blows a fuse every time they are switched on.

Are you running them through a relay? If you want I can take a look at your system and see if I can help.

It does run through a relay. Both sets of lights are using the original PIAA wiring harness. I checked the wiring from the lights to the firewall (anything that was not sheathed) and did not find a short. If I do not find anything from the firewall to the switch I would assume the relay or switch is bad..but I am not an electrical guru by anymeans. I know just enough to connect A to B and a little schematic learning. Always willing to have a second set of eyes on it though.

If you are attending the aug 2 meeting I can take a look unless you have time this weekend or evenings. I am pretty much open evenings.

Looks like an easy project. The wood shop on base has all the tools to make this happen.

I think it would be a great winter project for when it's cold

Fort Wainwright closed down its wood working craft shop over a year ago. I have enough of the tools to get it done in my garage, just not the technical expertise to make a sturdy quality long lasting product.
