I opted for the 510's because they are 4" lights and fit well in the holes. The install is real easy, the most time consuming part is removing the headliner to drill the hole and run the wiring. I used a 90 degree weathertight connector and polyurethane sealant to keep the water out. The relays are all mounted down inside the dash below the pillar cover for easy access. Here are a few pictures.

Did you mount the relays behind the dash instead of under the hood? Why? What advantage? Are you running an aux battery?

I wanted easy access without crawling up under the dash and with the addition of the Aux. battery set up I am flat out of any room under the hood. I just take off the grab handle, take off the cover and all the relays are right there. It made running the wires to the switches easy as well. Putting the relays in the engine bay is, in my opinion the best way for access but I had to make a sacrafice on this one.

very clean install. i like that the relays are inside, it makes everything just a little bit more weather proof.

I wish I won the lottery...I'm fortunate that the FJ is paid for by my company, including the fuel and maintenance....Leaves me more mod money.
