I still plan on mounting 2 lights on the back that'll come on with my reverse lights. I'm gonna make mounts for my high lift jack and axe shovel combo also. I just need to go to work and make money instead of sitting here drinking coffee..... P.S. the keuce is for personal use only. I'm not racist

Are you tapping 12v from your capacitor?

No. The capaciter gets its power from the distribution block. The distribution block has power comming in from 4 gauge wire ran from the battery. Theres 2 ouputs on the distribution block. 1 is straight to the cap and amplifier and the other goes to the aftermarket fuse block that will end up running the rest of my accessories as I add them down the road. Everythings under the backseat for now which is temporary. I wanna move it behind the rear driverside cargo plastic because theres a ton of room in there. I'll just have to make an access hole to get to everything. I wanna mount my high lift jack under the rear seat. I seen a post about putting your high lift there which is a killer idea (wont get stolen then unless they really really want it....)

Oh ok, I was looking at the green wire from your relay to your capacitor, i took a closer look and noticed it was for your ground, not 12v.

Yeppers. I used that side of the cap to ground the 2 relays. I was having my own personal party in the garage last night when I decided to play the wiring game. I'm surprised I didnt burn the damn thing to the ground. Tequlia got the best of me

i have the same rack but never put the basket part on. I move alot of ladders so didn't use it. Mine is rusting like hell and it is only 3 years old. Powdercoated my ***.

The guy that had the rack before me bought it brand new for $540, then his jeep blew up the same week he bought the rack. I got it for $200. I have had to touch up a bunch of spots on it since I mounted it but I've been using herculiner bed liner crap. I painted my winch bumper with it and it hasnt chipped off at all. Ya that textured so called powdercoat **** on this rack is garbage but the bed liner paint has the same texture and I know its durable.
