Weekend Head Lamp Project

Post by Wildhorse Cafe » Mon Nov 11, 2019 5:50 pm

I wanted to do this project right after I bought the 1013 Retro. Got the ducks in a row this weekend and I am very happy with the results. I don't recommend this project, unless you have confidence in your electrical skills. The project uses an aux switch controlling an aux relay to give the flexibility I wanted. The project was designed to go to normal default condition in case of a relay failure. There was some sausage making in order to get the heatsink on the back of new lamp into the headlight bucket.

A simpler way of doing this project can be accomplished by just using the brown and yellow leads that are unused in the headlight bucket and connecting them the ring lamp leads on the new headlamp. But ring lamp will always be on in the keyed ignition and parking position, which is why I opted for a more flexible relay artifice.

Cool.
Is the "Halo Effect" a running or driving light only? I see them aftermarket on a lot of Jeeps.
