I'm strictly a Solder & Shrink guy (you know the kind with that HotGlue in the inside). I'm Sure it's overkill but, that's ever stopped me before!

I just used but connectors, it took some time but i tied all of each type of wire together at the pod and sent it down all in 1 wire, and i used add a fuses for the constant and switched power wires, I also tied the night time dimmer wire to my existing cab light power wire, glow shift left a little engineering to the customer especially getting the pod to fit right but somehow i managed to get it all in there and it looks and works great, my only complaint is the lowest dim on the guages is too bright for night time driving, and if you havent already got the guages i recommend the 35 lb boost guage cuz my 60 barely even reads, that is unless u expect to have more than 35 psi of boost
