Also I can add weather pack connection to your black box if you wish. This is awesome option if you have lights on your bumper as this will allow you to remove your bumper without having to cut/resplice your light wires together!

Love my black box

Got one of these guys and installed it this weekend. Easy! The hardest part is accessing the battery hold down screw once the box is in place. I needed a longer extension on my ratchet.

Wired up most of the triggers to a tap-a-fuse in the M9 slot so the relays close only when the key is turned but that is just me.

The color coding makes it all simple and there is plenty of wire length.

So now I have:
1) bumper lights
2) hood lights
3) rear power (sunroof of my wildboar hardtop)
4) iphone mount/charger

I have one more circuit left. Probably for a winch sooner or later.

Dustin was great. Very responsive and helpful.

All in all I think this is great and would recommend it to anyone.

Could you post a better pic of the winch control?

Does anybody know if he's still making these? I've sent a few messages and haven't heard any response.
I'm sorry as I've been out of town for the most part of the week on my primary job. I sent you a PM and saw you left a VM. I'm calling you right now matter of fact.

Thanks for calling me back and thanks for all the information! I'll be sending you an email with my order in the next day or so as soon as I figure out exactly what I'm going to wire up to it so you can configure it appropriately.

Thanks again

how many

Please school me: If every electrical component needs a relay, why does the black box have 5 relays but 10 fuses? The black box has 5-colored wires for components(wht, grn, blu, orang, grey).....where do I hook up the 6th and 7th?

5 fuses are for 5 relays.

1 fuse is for switch power if you opt for being able to turn the switches on anytime.

4/5 other slots are fused power for extra accesories :)

Can 2 relays be set to a constant 12v source and 3 be set to an ignition source? Or do they all have to be one or the other?
