Some of you know I'm a vehicle lighting specialist, professionally. Part of that gig is I sell lighting upgrades—better headlights, headlight circuit upgrades, better brake lights, and otherwise like that. The circuit upgrades are described in detail here and have been written up all over the place (like on Allpar, in Mopar Action, on MoabJeeper, here on this board, etc).

Ordinarily, the options for a vehicle with two sealed beams or H4s (one on each side) are a build-it-yourself relay install parts kit for $69, or a custom-built, ready-to-install harness assembly for $179.

Now, while supplies last, I've got built-up, install-ready harnesses for 2-lamp vehicles for just $77/ea plus postage from Northern Michigan ($12.13 to most of the lower 48 states). One harness does the whole job on one vehicle. These are not the same as the expensive ones, but they're still darn fine (they easily pass the "would I use it on my own car at night in the mountains" test), and they're a whole lot better and more dependable than the Chinese junk that's all over the internet. These are very nicely made in Japan with name-brand high-current relays, splashproof fuseholders, quality terminals and sockets and plugs, 14-gauge wire, etc. You don't get custom-tailored wire lengths, but you do get wire lengths broadly suitable to just about any car, truck, or van you might install the harness in. You won't have a "tuff luck, won't reach" situation, but you might wind up coiling some extra cable length and tucking it neatly out of the way, or routing the cable under rather than over the radiator to take up some extra length.

Install is simple: one wire to battery +, one wire to battery - (they already have ring terminals on them). One plug snaps onto one of the vehicle's existing headlight sockets. New sockets, on the end of new wires, go to the left and right headlamps. Mount the relays (they have a tidy mount bracket) and secure the cable runs neatly out of harm's way. You don't have to cut or modify any of the vehicle's wiring. The in-car switches keep working normally.

Putting in a relay harness will brighten up even lousy old sealed beams, and take a lot of current load off the bulkhead connectors, ammeter, headlight switch, and high/low beam switch. Putting in an affordable harness will leave room in the budget for better lights without bank breakage! :lol:

Too many people who were born on third base actually believe they've hit a triple.
