Looks evil.:cool:
Hahaha, well thanks! 🤘
Definitely always loved the murdered-out look, and need to delete the last bit of chrome around the grill inserts ASAP. Same with the wheels. It's a shame vanta black and the other crazy deep-black coatings are so fragile and $$$$$, they look ridiculously dope. The one that DYC did was pure evil, lol

Great setup! How did the front air dam removal work for you?
Much obliged!

It worked like a charm. Much easier to do than anticipated and no adverse effects that I've been able to notice (no additional wind noise when doing highway speeds, gas mileage didn't drop, etc.).

Posted a bit more info about that and some relevant pics on this thread if you're interested: Airdam

Looking good! Love the look of that bull bar, would love that but w.o the light bar.

How did you wire up your light bar?

I put on my curved RC 40in few weekends ago but not sure where to run the relay. Wiring could be slightly longer to reach a better spot farther away from the engine.
Appreciate it!

Nice, I'm a big fan of their bars, but didn't really consider them as they don't make one specific for us. Which one did you go with, and how much retooling did you have to do for the fit?

So for the wiring I went driver's side behind the wheel well (very easy, as I already had it off for the bull bar install) and up to the battery just in front of the washer fluid reservoir. The relay itself I just secured the the inside of the driver's side front quarter panel under the hood with a zip tie, and all wiring was wrapped in heat shielding fabric tape. I'll grab a pic or 2 when I get home today, as I know that description is probably pretty unhelpful, lol.

For the switch, I was considering going through the firewall or maybe trying to piggyback on the power wire I'd previously had installed for the sub, but ended up just going behind the wheel well and through the same hole in the door that the factory wiring follows. I'll grab pics for that as well.

I held off on drilling out a hole on the dash for the switch, as I'm probably going to just scoop up a wireless switch soon. That or add a legit light panel once I add a couple more lights (2 led bricks for reverse and maybe a couple on the roof).

Cheers!

Alrighty, I tried to get the best angles I could for this, but I'm not sure how helpful they'll actually be. I'm sure it would be infinitely easier to see the wire path from the engine compartment through the door and into the interior if I had the wheel well out (as I did when installing), but that's wayyyy more effort than I have the motivation for at the moment, haha.

If you have any specific Q's about these, let me know (y)

Yes this is exactly what I was looking for! I wasn't quite sure where to mount the relay and where to run the wires after that. I was able to get mine through the firewall after a bit of finagling using metal skewers. Took a few tries to keep the mesh sheathing on the wires, had to also cut the plug off and use some butt end connectors to reattach the wires. Switch should be arriving this weekend so I can hopefully finish that 100% now.
Oh nice, glad it could help!

Aw man, I saw a post about someone doing it that way (on here maybe?), and that was going to be my backup plan if I couldn't find a less intrusive method. Plus I don't have grill skewers, haha. Really didn't want to have to cut the switch off and reattach it either like you had to do; there's no way I was getting that through in one piece with the skewer method.

Glad you got it all worked out though! (Or at least will have it worked out once the switch arrives). Are you going with a multi-switch panel for future add-ons? That's probably going to be my plan at some point in the near future.

Cheers
