Let there be light!

So the arrow still had “test lights” in. That is, 35w low on the driver side, and high on the passenger side, a 100w high on the driver side and a 55w low on the passenger side as if that’s not confusing enough. So now it’s running 55w low hids, and 100w Hella bulbs on highs. I had already installed high amp relays in anticipation of going hid.

It’s really hard to capture the cutoff on a fence on uneven ground.

Hitch is hot

Broke jeep donated its hitch wiring to the black jeep. We’ll see how this 4.0 compares to the 5.9 Cummins in tow capacity. Hah! Anyways.

The connector got blown up in the accident. Upgrade!

All the wiring is twisted, soldered, and shrink tube sealed.

7 and 4 pin connector. I like this style because you don’t need an adapter. I had one on the Cummins, it was nice. This one seems to be wired a little better than the Cummins, but this is an oem wiring harness. I believe the 5.9 jeep has an oem harness as well.

The arrow broke a plug

I switched to the E3 46 plugs. From ngk. Now I’m back with ngk. I won’t say they have never failed me, but I’m not demanding much out of these. They saw 5800rpm, and 13psi. I started noticing a miss at idle, then a miss under boost. It was a lot more prominent once I switched over to wasted spark.

Look ma! No distributor!
I added the second bip373 coil driver, and rewired the coil power and stuff. Pretty decent for fighting a spark plug all day.
