    Guys, here's is my thought.
    Rather then putting the relay system in for the halogen bulbs I may go back to the original bulbs (low wattage) and leave it original. The logic is I still have a generator on the truck with a power steering pump on the back of it so I’m not ready to go to an alternator. The second thought is I seldom drive the truck at night and the amount I do doesn’t warrant going the halagen route with relays.
    What I have read is that a generator is not the best for the higher wattage bulbs and if you want that you need to go to an alternator.
    Open to other logic, Thanks for your help.
