So this happened last night.
Still need to add fuses, grounds, wire my switches, run wire from fuse block to breaker to battery and shrink wrap as well as 300 ft of wire from lights to switches. LOL!
I was bummed that I had to extend the blue wire to the fuse block. Couldn't find a closer spot to mount it. Everything has been mounted to 1/8" ABS.

(4) 40 amp 5 wire relays
(4) 36 watt LED's
(1) 300 amp breaker
(4) switches
(1) 8 prong distribution block

Have some questions:
1. Can I run 2 lights to one switch with this setup?
2. Since these are 5 wire relays does the #87A (red) wire have to be connected along with the #30 (blue) wire? Or can I just leave it off?

Thanks for any input.

Well not much interest on this topic, but maybe this will come in helpful for someone down the road when they do a search.

Have power now to fuse block. All that is left to do is wire to switches (just waiting on my switch panel from Steel Armadillo to arrive) and wire up to lights as well as ground it all.
Going to have rear lights on one switch and side lights on another. Tried to keep this as clean as I could. Still not certain I like where I mounted the breaker switch. The engine bay is packed and it's already 100 degrees out. May just be a temp spot.

Got it all finished. Just need to do some more shrink wrap and clean up the wires. Still have 3 unused switches as well as 2 relays available for future use.

Nice job on the install I'm not going to do any drilling or mods to the interior ( wife's car). and my not knowing the answer to your question was just as large a reason.

Thanks. I figured out and answered my own 2 questions. Took a little bit more research.

It looks good AZJeep;

I was wondering why you mounted this all the way up by the fan?

Is this the breaker switch you were talking about?

I know it's close to the battery but I think you'd be better served mounting that to the driver's side firewall behind the battery somewhere.

I think it might be prone to getting damaged where you have it mounted right now.

Yeah, I agree. Like I said. Probably a temp spot. When it cools down outside or when we finally move up
to Idaho which will probably come first. I will relocate the breaker.
Next up is replacing the passenger front door handle. Have had the replacement sitting on my desk for a couple of weeks. In a month or so I will be talking further with Natalie at Wam bumpers to finalize a front bumper. Then I'm done! Yeah right.

The more you do, the more you will find other upgrades to take on.

It's an addiction.

Really nice wiring - clean and easy to follow each wire from point to point.

Wish I could have answered your question - I'm really slow when it comes to electrical work. I can figure it out but I don't know the answers off the top of my head. Don't know why electrical is a roadblock for me - I can tear down an engine and rebuild it without much trouble but ask me to put in a switch for LED roof lights and I curl up in a ball and suck my thumb...

Well done!

I'm right there with you. One reason why I wanted to do this myself was to prove I could do it and learn something in the process. It was actually kind of fun.
