I'm installing 10 LEDs tomorrow probably as rock lights. Well 10 pods of 9 LEDs. These are pretty serious lights, I plan to have no shadows under my Jeep...

Those are the same Walmart lights I picked up. I didn't think they would put out that much light. I need to get busy and get them mounted then figure out how many relays I need for 6 lights. Thanks for the Pics.

That's good to know, I'll make sure I wire them so they can be unplugged and replaced quick. I also need to check the amp draw and determine if one relay can handle 6 lights.

I pulled the rubber caps off of them, soldered the (screw-type) connections, and sealed them with high-temp rtv sealant, so they are completely waterproof now. Yes they get a little warm. I also wired in one 25 amp relay for two lights. Below is a schematic I made prior to installation.

Cool...I was thinking of doing the same with a set of lights I had given to me but I have seen a couple sets at Walmart that are smaller...I may just buy two sets for now and try it...Thanks for posting the wiring diagram too...

10 lights, 9leds per light, $35. You could do 15 or so and have some spares for interior lights or something for an unlimited
