Oh it was still a great time. Any time out in the field/woods is always a blast even if I don't even see anything. And there may or may not have been a couple breakfast beers while we went inside to warm up

So I'm strolling about on the army and come across, you guessed it, an oil thread! Anyone heard of this LE (Lubrication Engineering) ?

I have GEICO. It's always been great. I don't think that I pay much either.

I want to install some aux switches in my overhead console. Here is what I was thinking:

- The glasses cubby is getting clobbered. I don't use it and the cover is almost flat.
- I want to control the fan mod and small between-the-tow-hooks light bar upfront.
- I want a reverse camera override and compressor power for the rear.
- I do NOT want to deal with a crap-ton of wires running to the overhead console.

So... I have the following parts:
- (1) Quad Aux switch bank (shown below)
- (2) smallish Nema 4X enclosures
- (2) 2-channel 433MHz radio transmitter/receiver pairs
- (4) Automotive relays

My plan is to:
- Mount the Aux switches in the glasses cubby.
- Connect (2) switches to each transmitter and power it all from the overhead console.
- Put (1) receiver in each Nema 4X enclosure driving with (2) automotive relays.
- Mount (1) receiver/relay box next to the hydroboost reservoir and (1) on the frame at the rear of the truck.
- Wire my gadgetry into them.

So... my question is: Does anyone else think that this is something that they would be interested in? I can either just solder it all together or do a proper printed circuit board layout. I'm leaning toward the board layout regardless, but I'd definitely go that way if anyone else was interested.

Lemme know.

its a little tight where it connects to my front seats but keeps the hair contained pretty darn good.

All this insurance talk..... I'm over here with Alfa, paying $86/month on my truck. I have 3 claims on my last truck, totalling over $15,000, 1 speeding ticket (19 over). They have always been great to us. I do have multi car discount. I pay about the same for my wife's CR-V and $40 for business insurance liability on my 7.3.

My truck is at a $50/500 deductible

We used to run LE oils and grease in our printing presses. Really good stuff for that application. No wear failure due to lubricants. Increased the oil life by 2 fold. Didn't know they had moved into the automotive market. If it's the same it will be red in color.

Just do the board. Then, if you do it again, you'll already have the layout. Plus, you know you'll end up doing a board anyway.

You might be better off putting them all in the business, for several reasons.

Probably different. Way different application.
