wiring it it pretty easy, just time consuming. mounting it is the hardest part

I found it and wish I had this when I did mine and no I wasnt drunk maybe hung over but not drunk I was actually at work pissed off cause I was working on my own truck at work instead of making money and I drilled the hole for the bracket and used self tapping screws

It took me like an hour to get the OHC installed but like 10 hours to wire it all up....I ended up using relays and doing the cargo lamps and everything all at once. I had 3 wires (2 OHC temp sensor wires, 1 headlamp wire tap in wire) going down the front and the rest going down the back b pillar with Ford's wiring. It was overkill but it looks tidy.

Brent and I are gonna install mine the right way the 1st time. So i have to go back in and change anything. I can't wait to get it installed. I have a big hole in the front of the headliner above the mirror.

I'm so OCD It would take me all day to step up and cut the headliner. cause knowing how picky I am I would see one side off by a mm and bug me.
