|Digital speedometer/tech., an old Heath Kit back from 1981 (Tachometer part is not hooded ups yet). The stock speedometer is mechanical and had broken the gear in the transfer case or the 90 dig. gear box in the past.. I used a small magnetic pickup coil and a few magnets on the shaft to get my speed pulses.|
| Quartz Halogen 7" Headlights using H4 bulbs and are great.
They reduce the glare to the on coming drivers allot better then the standard
headlight used here in the US and yet give better lighting for the driver
(me). Mfg. Zelmot - Made in Poland
I now have changed out the bulbs to true HID bulbs for some really great lighting.

(Now I know they say for off-road use, but that is because they are not yet DOT approved. But I would not use them if they where to cause problems for the on coming drivers. In fact they shine even less light to the on coming driver then and most DOT approved sealed beam headlights that most cars & trucks are equipped with now here in the US.
Note, if you are going to drive where the headlights many be under water, they will leak and will get water in the lens. And can crack if they are HOT and you submerge them in water. But normal use, I have never had any problems with them. Use some sealant around the rubber boot and the drain hole to help seal the bulbs from water.
Dec 99, Found HID light bulbs and changed out the bulbs of my
headlamps. REALLY great lighting, nice and white. But the light pattern on
the road was still not just how I wanted to see it. So I got a new set of
Zelmot Leaded Crystal headlights from JC Whitney and I am a happy with the
results of the HID & the Zelmot headlights. See my section on lights
for more info.
|The high current relay panel located in the foot well (left side is
up). Some of the relays still spares, but with me always adding something
new, it won't be long before I add more.
7 of the relays where used for lights on the light & luggage rack and will be moved to a new electrical box on the rack to help reduce the number of large wires used for the lights on the rack.
