KC Slimlites Driving & Long Range Lights
Posted 13 September 2012 - 12:16 AM
(2011 FX4 5.0)Quick question, I am looking to buy KC Slimlites 100Watt Driving Lights and 130 Watt Long Range Lights. My question is, will my electrical system be able to handle this? I don't know if this is a stupid question or not, but I won't melt any wires and I won't hurt anything but installing these, correct?
I am going to use all the supplied wires/hardwire from KC as well as their switches. I won't be running these every day, if that matters. Please advise.
Also, I can't seem to find "lite locks" for the slimlites, any input where I can purchase those?
Thanks in advance,

In regard to your question, I believe though some translation of the universe you have ended up on the wrong forum. I would suggest perusing the information available at www.f150forum.com, where I am also a member (I drive an '04 F-150 SuperCab XLT.) Using their search I was able to find a thread pertaining to the light locks: http://www.f150forum...imlites-135620/
Good luck in the install. There's a lot of factors in adding loads to the existing circuits in the truck, concepts to include Watts x Volts = Amps and the AWG of the cable, overcurrent protection and insulation. If any or all of these concepts are foreign to you, I would recommend the use of a professional installer. The electrical systems are complicated and central to the function of our trucks, not one you want to modify without a working knowledge of electricity.
Best of luck in your F-150.
