Welcome to Survival Bus, here I am restoring a 1977 Volkswagen Sportsmobile Bus, to be used as a Bug Out Vehicle, daily driver and off grid home if needed.

Off Road LED Lights Setup

Well I broke down and bought some LED Off Road lights, I got 4, 18watt  lights on Amazon  for $10 each, cheap but im happy.

I drilled 8 holes, used sealent when bolting the brackets on, i still need to seal the cables.

I soldered the wires in parallel and taptes them up, then tucked them back into the roof area

I used a relay and fuse and tied the switch in with the dash lights, tied it all up out of the way.

For so small the shine the light, and pull 5.6 amp all together.
