Talking

These are just some pics, the tv on the rear is mounted (zip tied) on the rear C hoop facing towards the font. I did this because I have a single racing seat facing the rear (Actually quite fun to sit in) The capacitor and xm radio modulator is underneath the passenger seat. I don't have pics of my headunit, I can go outside and take some later. The amps are all polk and amazingly, they fit perfectly along the rear quarterpanel, from the bulkhead elimnator bar all the way to the rear speaker, I got lucky there, love the look at night when they glow cobalt blue.

[QUOTE= then from there I put more cable and grounded that point from the roll cage, down some mystery factor hole behind the seat box then over transfer case and grounded into the same bolt/ground the battery cable is grounded to. .[/QUOTE]

So to read this. Is something just grounded to a rollcage bolt? Lots of powder coating on the rollcage. Powdercoating can sometimes neutralize a ground lead.

All those ground wires are hooked to the factory cable at the frame or transfer case? The factory ground wire is crap. Get a new 0 ground wire and run it from the battery to the transfer case or better yet one of the bellhousing bolts. Then get a double eyelet cable and connect it at the same point. Run the other eyelet back to a good cleaned frame point. For instance one of the bulkhead support bracket bolts that run through the frame. Be sure to clean up the frame bare where you connect the ground lead. I usually spray over the connection with battery protection spray after cleaning to bare metal for the ground.

I'll PM you about the alternator. Might be best to get all these things done before that step though.

Well I've decided to do the 2 battery run in parallel set up first, I have a warn winch so I'm sure I'm gonna need it. Well I know I won't ever use it because I'm a poser that lives in LA haha. But anyway, as far as the ground, yes its all junctioned off at one bolt at the roll cage, then from their it bolts onto one of the transfer case bracket bolts. So techincally its grounded off at the rollcage and the frame. The rollcage is powdercoated yes but, inside the threads where the bolt goes through isn't (but I know there could be corrosion between the top rollcage and the lower rollcage supports. I could just run another distribution block for the grounds for ex: both 4 guage grounds go into the block than into 0 guage wire which will go back to the - on the battery. What do you think of that? I would imagine that would be the "ultimate" ground no? lol Still trying to decide whether to use that solenoid isolater, the shop won't let me return it.
