    Secondary Fuse/relay box

    I am upgrading to a 3G alternator but would like to incorporate a new fuse/relay box in the mix. I was thinking mainly, headlights, fuel injection, fuel pump, Radio, maybe head light cover actuators as future projects. Does anyone had any pictures of their setup? I figure some one has something cleaner than a big box fastened to the wheel well like my pickup has. I have the parts but may get a head light relay setup before I start.

    Many Thanks

    Well I test fit everything for the alternator upgrade. Had to shave a little off the ribs on the cover, no big deal. PAPerformance kit swapped out the regulator. Both the old alternator and regulator cheap stuff so good reddens. Still I go back and there is no room for the mega fuse or a secondary fusebox. Then it hits me, the battery would be more at home in my tractor. They cut the side out of the battery tray and the battery is extending 3 inches past the tray. Nothing is going to fit right with that monster in there. So I will pull the battery and mock up mounts for everything. Hopefully no surprises.


    Its never the upgrade its the things you find when doing the upgrade.

    The headlight harness came in last night. I laid it out and it looks like everything should reach. So I am hoping that I can get it in this weekend after I finish the alternator. It is going to be raining so I should have the time. But there will be no test drive with BLU having a bad cowl.

    Wrong it does not reach. I will have to get some wires replaced. Still a bargain at three times the price. I did finish the alternator up and is functions great. And we had a gully washer, great view from the garage.
