    10 gauge from relays to lamps.

    If the rack was well grounded to the body, the ground wires could be run to the rack from the lamps. The triggering of the relays can be smaller wire. 14 is fine. Relays are 40 amp generally. I would want one relay for 2,3,and 4. Another for 1 and 5.

    BTW, sorry for the late response but I don't always get notified of visitor messages. Best to use CF's mail.

    Ok here goes
    Picture in your minds eye five (5) KC type roof mounted off road lites
    #1 & #5 are 100 W halogen bulbs, operated by one 1 dash mount switch
    #2 3 & 4 are 55 W halogen bulbs, " " " " " " "
    What gauge wire will I run from lamps to relay & can all Five(5) lamps be on be on one(1) ground ? & switches & relays on separate grounds ?


    If I understand the diagram correctly, larger gauge wire from relays to Lamps & smaller gauge from relay to switches, if so what gauge to each respectively ?
    I also note that Lamps, relays,& switches are each to their own ground, correct?


    OR---Should I refer to diagram #2 on below web site under 100w lamps ? Using the fulltime solenoid.


    Sorry to be such a dumb *** but as you've guessed by now electrical wiring is not my strong suit


    Will be in Mayer, Prescott Valley & at Harbor Freight this Fri gathering up supplies for project.


    Thank again
    Jeff.

    We could do that. In the meantime, here's something for you to look at.

    C54:
    Rather than clutter up the site and not appear to be stupid for a change I'll ask on a PM.
    I am in process of installing extra lamps ( roof, bumper and so on) and the mechanical side of this not a problem for me. What I need to question you about is the electrical side-- running wires, selecting switches, fuses, rheostats ,ground wires sort of "Wiring for dummies" I know how I want to do it I just don't know how to get from A to B & so on. Any help going the right direction so's not to create shorts & fires would be a good thing.
    Since we're close to each other perhaps a short meeting could be arraigned for a "Brain picking session" Hell, I'll even buy the beverage of your choice if your up for it.
    Call if you think you can help set me on the right course to a non-exploding XJ & I'll drive to you at your convenience.
    Thanks

    Get the Volvo 746 injectors from Programbo here on Cherokee Forum. Best I've ever used.

    Thank you, Cruiser54, for the tip on the brake light switch. I haven't employed it yet, but will tomorrow. Since you also live in Prescott, might you recommend an affordable and quality Jeep service shop that I could lean onif necessary? DO you do Jeep work for others, perhaps?

    Cheers again and thank you!

    Hey cruiser, I just bought my first Cherokee and I have some questions. My brother said to find you because your word is gold. I apologize in advance this might be long. The guy before me did the Taurus fan swap and im afraid I can go back to easily. The entire crank assembly was hacked right off the cast. The fan has a reinforced shroud and is bolted to my front clip dangerously close to my belt and all of my pulleys. The factory fan was moved over to the drivers side. What are the chances of catastrophe? Also, my dome light fuse was pulled so I put it back in everything seemed normal until I went to leave and when I turned the wheel the steering wheel clicked ,like it would to turn my blinker off, and the dome light turned on. When I turned back and off it went. It proceeded to do this the whole way home pretty cool trick but only funny once haha. Any pointers??

    I would initially suspect a cPS which is heating up. See post 7 in my tips to test it.
