The Brite Lites Kit!! Scout, Scout II, Pickup Travelall
Brite Lites is a product designed to increase the brightness of your Scout's head lights, over the stock setup, without going to a more powerful (and possibly illegal, in some states) bulb. With Brite Lites, the power to your head lights is supplied by the battery directly (or the fuse block, see below), to give you the most power to your head lights with the least amount of voltage drop. With the stock wiring, 16 gauge wire is run from the fuse block, to the head light switch, through the dimmer switch, then out to your head lights. Brite Lites uses 14 gauge wire (to minimize any voltage drop) and a set of relays (one for hi beams, and one for low beams) to supply the power to your headlights, and each relay is individually protected by a 30 amp fuse. They are controlled (on, off, hi beams, low beams) through your stock wiring harness. There is no cutting, crimping, or soldering needed; it is a simple plug in procedure and you can convert back to the factory system in about 5 minutes.
Each Brite Lite Kit comes with everything needed for installation: Harness, Relays, Fuses, and directions.
Mini Tech Tip
: Some basic electrical facts. Voltage = Amperes x Resistance . . . Watts = Volts x Amperes For a head light, the resistance is fixed, and the Wattage of the light is for a set voltage, normally 12 volts. So a 55 watt bulb draws 4.58 amps at 12 volts, and the resistance is 2.62 ohms. If you only supply 11 volts to that system, you amps draw will be 4.2 amps, and your head light will put out 46 watts of light. All wire has a set resistance/ft that is dependant on temperature, as temperature goes up, so does the resistance of the wire. What this means to you is that for a given resistance, like a length of wire, you will get a voltage drop. The longer the wire, the larger the voltage drop. When a wire carries a current (amps) through it, it will heat up some, which in turn causes the resistance to increase, which causes a larger voltage drop. So, for a given load (head lights),
Larger Wire = Less Resistance = Less Heat Generated = Smaller Voltage Drop = Brighter Lights
Higher Voltage = Brighter Lights
