**SORRY FOR THE TOYOTA, BUT ITS FOR MY DAD**

So my dad drives a Toyota Tacoma TRD, after I did a bunch of stuff to my Rubi he wanted me to hook his truck up.... So I put a RC 2/3" lift AllPro bumpers and skids, a winch and a set of 4" ion yellow PIAA's... So lately he's been asking about the lights in had on top my old dodge Ram (5,130watt KC Daylighters), he likes my 20" led but don't like the prices.... Well it just so happens that a 40" led fits in the factory roof rack,

14474

and coincidentally a buddy of mine is selling his 40" Hanma L.E.D. Light bar and rugged, windshield hoop ($100+shipping, I don't need it, pm me) so I'm buying this as a surprise for my dad, my question is...
1. what size relay and/or what size in line fuse should I install?
2.What gauge wire u think I should use?
I'm gonna try and do this at night while he's asleep so when he wakes up he'll come out for the paper and see it all done.

All I need to know is what size relay to use? Doesn't anyone have a 40" led that can tell me what their setup is?

You need to look at the number of amps the light is pulling and make a judgement on wire size based on that. Here are a couple sites to give you an idea of what you might need. The MAX amps the light draws will also determine fusing.

Basic rule is more amps = larger wire. Hope this helps. :beer:
