I am guessing Radio Shaq, but how do i pick the right one?
<font color="green"> Just ask for an automotive relay, they'll know what you're looking for. </font>
do they come in amperage ratings and such? or is there just a one size fits all thing?
gwt a 30 amp. im assuming its for light or radio ect. autozone, walmart, big a , napa, o reillys, advance ect ect,
<font color="green"> The regular one is fine unless you're running some massive piece of gear off of it. I think they're good for 20 or 30 amps. </font>
JC Whitney sells automotive relays with a plug and a pre-wired pigtail that makes 'em pretty darn easy to install. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif Check 'em out: http://www.jcwhitney.com/product.jhtml?CATID=50489&BQ=jcw2 /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
Car Stereo shops they use relays for relays. They always have tons of em. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
this is to your own post and you thought you were having a brain fart. but here is the wiring again anyway.
Zakk, you keep forgetting to ask the one person you know who works at a machine shop/auto parts store, ME. I can get whatever you need/want. We have them on the shelf and even the trick wiring harness for them. Maybe when you get here friday you can pick some up. Let me know in advance how many you need and I will make sure we have enough for you.
i think i need 3
2 for the rock lights
1 for the driving lights
i'll give you a call.
I need some also. Do you stock the hi-quality type? Maybe even the Bosch sealed units?
I was going to order some from Wrangler NW but maybe I should stop by and see you.....
Where do you work?
I get my relays from Parts Express, they are the high quality sealed Bosch relays for $1.99 each, and the pigtails are $1.50 each. Here's the link to the Bosch Relay and to the pigtails. I bought a Radio Shack 30A automotive relay for $6 and it was crap compared to the Bosch. Buy 10 or more from Parts Express and you get a quantity discount. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
Those are some great prices. Thanks for posting.
Just ordered. I guess I should have asked if the close people if they needed some - sorry Zakk.
np, i got mine with harnesses from Scott
