    Lighting Question

    I知 wanting to run 5 51w lights on a light bar and just wanted to make sure I知 understanding this correctly. I bought a 14g harness that is rated for 300+w, 40a relay, and a 25a fuse. Is this okay to run all the lights off the single harness since it is only 255w and 21.5 amps?
    Thanks for the insight,
    Novac

    amps = watts volts

    Your relay and fuse should be fine, but according to a wire size chart, you should be running 8g wire for 15-20' length. Not sure how long your run is, so you may want to check that. You might get away with 10g or 12g if it's shorter, but 14g is pretty small for that much load.

About us
努ayoflife is a moniker that I致e been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
