but I don't know how to make a bracket to make it work correctly... not to mention I don't know what I would need to make it work... I would LOVE to go EDC, however.

I thought about putting some shockers on my Chevy Malibu... but I wouldn't know where to put them... yet...

I don't blame you for laying on the floor... however, you COULD put a heater outside...


Extreme Outback is what I'm running. Absolutely no complaints except I replaced my power steering lines since the instructions called for bending them near the pump, and I didn't want to kink those metal lines.

It does require a special grease, but I'm still on my first tube. A few pumps every couple months is all it needs.

Alright bro... I purchased one of those power distro blocks I showed you a few posts ago... lemme tell you.. I'm DEFINITELY going to use this thing when I finally get another truck... I purchased it on EBAY for $35 (link below) and took it apart to see just how good it would be for me to use...

First thing I noticed is that it has about a 1/8" (guessing) stud for the power cable. That stud connects to a pretty thick bar that branches off to 12 individual power connectors. It is stated by the manufacturer (Blue Sea Systems) that each is capable of handling 30 amps, which I believe it would.

I've taken a couple of pictures of this system (including taken apart) which I'll post below... and the center piece of metal weighs in at 1.2 oz.

It's actually pretty thick, which is why I believe each connector is capable of 30 amps. Personally, I wouldn't attempt 30 amps on each circuit because that would pull 360 amps total from your system and your vehicle most likely wouldn't be able to keep up with the demand.

Links & Pictures:

eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/271117409911...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Although, I don't remember the stickers being with it, but you can have custom stickers made by the company for $5 each (not totally worth it, IMO, but I might do it later)

<pictures will be shown as soon as I can get them uploaded>

If you have questions, let me know.

POWR-BLOKS power distribution blocks offer a safe,
convenient way of splicing cables, providing a fixed junction
tap-off point or splitting primary power into secondary
circuits. Lx2xxx-DIN series offers integral DIN-Rail mount
and an optional hinged safety cover.
Optional power distribution block covers provide protection
against accidental shorting between poles caused by
loose wires, tools, or other conductive material. They also
protect personnel from accidentally contacting energized
connectors. To order protective covers, match the number
of poles for the block to the cover.

The DIN rail method is a nice way to go for adding 87 relays. That will provide complete flexibility, expansion and options.
