Hello, thanks to some suggestions of forum members, I purchased this headlight harness from LMC. it is said to put full voltage and full needed amperage up to the headlights where it can do the most good for the 2nd generation rams while driving at night.
Start time 12:18
This is a good weapon to have in the arsenal when you live up here in Western New Yorks "rust belt"!!
I started by removing the battery and the battery tray
Don't overlook these 2 like I did
It took me a couple minutes to find 'em!!!
Once the battery tray was out of the way it was easy to access the drivers side headlight and made it an open shot to ground and plug connections
The supervisor got up and checked out my work from time to time too
The 3 prong male plug of the new harness plugs into the trucks drivers side plug taken off the headlight.
HeyYou drilled a hole to establish a ground on this side, I looked around and found that pre existing hole in the fender and ran a metal screw in it to get my ground for that side.
Next I grabbed 12 volts from the live post inside of the power distribution box located on the drivers side inner fender, that is where I tried to neatly, attach my relays also
Some one previous post had the great idea of using a small Tupper ware container to house them in, I will make a trip through the wife's cupboards to confiscate one of the correct size!!!
So the drivers side is where most all the connections take place, 2 to battery, 1 ground, plug the 2 provided relays in to the new harness, and plug the male 3 prong into the one removed from the head light, and naturally the female plug from the harness goes to the headlight.
Then I routed the wires leading over to the passenger side in front of the radiator, up by the radiator support. BUT found that route left the wires "banjo tight" so I relaxed them down to about the middle of the radiator and zip tied off to those cross brace looking supports.
I utilized the factory ground on the passenger side
I also taped up the stock plug that went to.the headlight
End time 1:32
Yeah it took me a bit longer, but I have tools strewn all over between 3 buildings, I work on stuff when it breaks where it breaks!!
Pretty much plug and play like the guys said that recommended this harness!!!
Thank you to the members who told me about this kit and gave insight about installing
