headlight relay upgrade

here is a pic to help you in upgrading your lights to relays in the front. headligths are brighter, less problems on your wiring and headlight switch.

Cool info deputy! I think there was a way to make the harness a plug in by getting a 3 prong adapter connecting to the "new" headlight wires on one end and the other end connecting to one side of the stock female 3 prong that went to the original headlight. The other headlight prong was not used and left hanging. This way you can turn on your new circuit with your existing switch and lead. I was looking for this schematic, thanks!

It's an easy upgrade to make, basically you use the factory wiring as the trigger wire, energize the relay off the alternator directly, then run the the wires out to new headlight pigtails and plug the lights into those. Takes the major load off the factory wiring and really brightens up those night cruises. There are tons of how-to's on the 'net if you need full details.

I had crackedbacks kit on my Scamp, and have a spare from him that I'm modifying for use on the Challenger. He puts together an extremely nice harness for everything.
