Installed the second gigavac conveniently enough the albrite contactor I had installed had same bolt spacing!

All I need to do now is install the new voltage reducer and I'll be ready for the new controller! I'm kinda worried about the controllers size. My layout is pretty tight hopefully I'll have enough of room.

Ordering from gigavac directly was a huge plus. $95 shipped for the 400 amp version with 48v coil. Pretty good deal for a fully suppressed contactor.

Gotta love when a new part fits in where an old part was that easily! Looking forward to hearing how the new controller pans out!

Who knew!!! I was trying to order a second set of alpha body headlights to install custom DRLs or halos well upon further and closer inspection of the lights I noticed what looked like drls already in them. A little digging through the instructions and sure as **** they are in there already! Ran a switch and wired then up!!

I've fallen victim to yet another modification. Lol

So looking online at tires and wheels I've come to find that 20in wheels and 33in tires have more options than any other combo. Sadly the only way to make them work is to lower my roof. Having used the hinges in the past I'd really like to get away from them.

I'm thinking about using 12v linear actuators to raise and lower the roof. The prices are more than reasonable now days.

12v 2-12in stroke with 225lbs of lifting force only costs $33.00

I've ordered one to take measurements off of and see if I can come up with a good way to mount them inline with the roof struts.

I'm aiming for a straight up straight down 4 corner 4 actuator solution. I feel that adding pivot points and trying use the actuators to hinge the roof will be overly complicated and create alot of rattles.

Anyone seen something like this done?

I think I'll be able to do it for less than $200 bucks. That's not much more than the hinges.

Found a smoking deal on 18in wheels so I pulled the trigger on them. Now i cant decide whether to go 30.5in or 33s

If i go with 30.5s I won't need to do any mods to the roof but I think I'll be left wanting the 33s later on.

They dont turn to badly not alot of weight on them. It rides like a Cadillac it just floats lol.

The other one is still at my friends dealership. They have it listed for 15k I dont think it's going anywhere any time soon. I'm not in much of a hurry to sell it. Having it there opens my garage up for another project lol.
