Since the factory AUX switches only supply a powered wire, the negative wire would have to be connected either to a stud or the battery terminal. This works great with the AUX wires because it keeps both positive and negative wires all in one location. Connect the red wire of your accessory to the aux wire of your choice and the black wire to the bus bar, and you're set. It keeps everything nice, clean and organized.I would be interested in the ground bracket. I think that is a great idea.
Could the grounding bracket be used with the factory AUX switches?
Would love one of the ones that goes along the battery box. Ideally a bit bigger area for mounting stuff if possible as have a Blue Sea RBS-ML contactor for my winch disconnect, and a small fuse block.So I survived another trip to Moab last week. Hit a few new trails and showed some of the newbies around. Overall it was another successful trip. But now that I'm back, I'm looking into the possibility of making a few of the underhood brackets I posted about here and here.
After I posted those, I had a handful of people message me about offering the brackets up for sale which honestly hadn't crossed my mind. I made both of these brackets for myself because, as far as I can tell from my research, there is nothing else like it on the market. The whole point behind the bracket was to keep things neat and tiddy under the hood, which they both do nicely. So, since there was interest, I've reached out to a fabrication shop I use regularly for work and they are working on drafting me up a quote.
I'd really like to see just how much interest there really is. I want to make sure it's worth everyone's time for me to put these together. I plan on starting with just the ground bus bar bracket that mounts near the battery. It's the easiest and quickest for the fab shop and myself to make. If there is continued interested in my rock light bracket (which is a little more complex and could be adapted for other uses), I will look into it.
I'm tagging the people that I've already exchanged messages with so they can follow along.
If you're interested in either of the brackets, let me know below.
