    Just before I installed it, I noticed one of the switches had a loose contact. I couldn’t find any solder, said, “Eh, it’ll ride.”

    It didnt. Started flickering after just a short time. So, down it comes. I believe this is a sign from God saying, “you got it this far, go ahead and install the relay panel, all the push button breakers and get it ready for LEDs, while you are at it, build that big bumper you have designed and install your winch. (God wants me to cover the truck with really bright LED bars I think. Who knows, but why question such obvious signs like this!)

    That looks really nice, great attention to detail. Can you explain about the radios, what is their purpose, range, who can you talk to or listen to with them?

    Well, at the moment they work as really good noise canceling headphones and a great Intercom system for the truck so you can carry on a conversation with your passenger at highway speeds. It works great for that. Augi made a cell phone to radio interface that works great so I can accept calls and make calls at highway speeds.

    As for comms with another vehicle, I need another truck with a VIC 3 to talk to. In other words, I need friends with radios.
