Episode Notes

In this episode Chris shows you how to install auxiliary lights from Hella, Inc. USA on a Ford F-150 as well as a Ford F-350 Super Duty pickup truck. Included is an overview of where all the wires go, and the F-150 gets a new light bar on the front to hold Hella’s 500FF and Micro FF lights. The F-350 gets the giant 4000 FF Xenon lamps mounted to its front bumper.

This episode also features Partz, Letterz, and event coverage from the California Jam at the Park car show in Southern California!

Whenever installing off-road lights, be sure to check with your local state laws. Many states require them to be covered, even if they are not in use. Thankfully, all of Hella’s lights come with covers, so use them or replace them if they get lost or stolen.

    do you know how much for the bear brakes?

  7. motorztv Says:

    @15naldo They vary, so the best thing to do is to call them or check with a retailer.

    @ecode68 Thanks!

  14. dipendraraikut Says:

    why is the relay used for the lights.

  15. foxdmulder Says:

    fine truck and great video!!

  16. wildbloodydragon Says:

    Could you do an episode on installing electric cutouts? It’s simple enough for everyone to understand and it’s something that’d help out a lot of people.

  17. motorztv Says:

    @wildbloodydragon What kind of cutouts are you asking about? Electric exhaust cutouts?

  18. motorztv Says:

  19. motorztv Says:

    @foxdmulder Thank you! We love our trucks :)

  20. motorztv Says:

    @BestHowToShowEver Both trucks are a lot of fun to work on and have been a great learning experience building up!

  21. wildbloodydragon Says:

    @motorztv Yes.

  22. motorztv Says:

    @wildbloodydragon ok, thanks. We’ll look into it!

  23. motorztv Says:

    @wildbloodydragon ok, thanks. We’ll look into it!

  24. motorztv Says:

    @dipendraraikut To reduce current draw through the switch. Most switches cannot handle the amount of current required and will melt or short.

    I seen you were waving the 3 fingers while you were next to those huge 24″ rims, does that mean those rims are $3,000 each?? I couldn’t figure out what you were lipping lol.

  26. motorztv Says:

    @Michiganborn1969 I was indicating that they were 30′s.

  27. CuminStrokeMyDuramax Says:

    If you guys have that nice big ol’ chevy, what’re you doing working on that F-150?

  28. motorztv Says:

    @CuminStrokeMyDuramax The black Chevy? It was here just for that episode with the BedTred.

  34. CuminStrokeMyDuramax Says:

    @motorztv I bet it looked like a beast. You should ask him if you can work on it. Maybe paint it blue for your theme? lol

  35. 2fast4all Says:

    What are the color temperature on those Hella lights? Close to 4-6k brighness? the xenon ones look 5k IMO

  36. nassimlak Says:

    agghhrr…what a tacky grill (the chrome fire)…please take it off

  39. 01jordanfirst Says:

    is there really that much load to add a relay?

  40. motorztv Says:

    @01jordanfirst Oh yes. If you don’t add a relay you’ll melt your wires.

  41. motorztv Says:

    @01jordanfirst Oh yes. If you don’t add a relay you’ll melt your wires.

  42. spk9grsch Says:

    @01jordanfirst Or just run low gauge wires.

    you have a arb bull bar

  47. motorztv Says:

    @hamee10 Yes, the bumper on the Ford F-350 is from ARB.

  48. santana77780 Says:

    Hi there, i would to hook up my lights to my high beams, and also to turn them on manually when i really need them. how do i make this type of connection? Hope you can answer my question thank you!

  49. LightingShowroom Says:

    Nice work

  50. odisbrawnerjr Says:

    Hi, I have 900 watts of Halogen and Rigid LED’s equal 20 amps of draw on my truck. Right now I have 200 watts per 30 amp/fuse relay running on 14 guage wire for power and ground. Would increasing that to 40 amp relays and say 6 gauge wire make my lights burn any brighter? I do not have a heat issue, I seem to be getting enough power but was hearing from someone that if I made the wire larger (or just cut the watts on the 14 gauge down to 100 watts each I suppose) that I would get more light.

    wait a minute. seems like you guys already made an episode on this. Oh well its fun to watch, I love doin modifications like this wish I could get into a career with it but its hard to come by. Great videos!!

  60. Max Banx Says:

    Can you put those on in Cali? lol

  61. Cody White Says:

    Don’t call it a bumper its a bullbar.

  62. ShortyzProductionz Says:

    this may sound like a stupid question but its a legit question. Why do you need the relay? Can’t you just run it straight from the batter with a fuse installed on it and a switch?

  63. Adam London Says:

    Relays can handle a higher amp load than just a switch alone. If you were to use a rocker switch that can only handle 10-15 amps with a light that pulls 20 amps, then the switch will typically melt. Most auxiliary lights are going to be over the switches amp load. So bring in the relay!

  64. ShortyzProductionz Says:

    ok thank you!!! :)

  65. ErmaTheKitteh Says:

    In some countires you are not allowed to install AUX lights with a switch like that, it have to be linked to the highbeams or similar
