Quick Disconnects

Hey everyone, like most of you I have wires running throughout the inside of the cage. Unfortunately, unlike most of you, I have to remove my cage to get the hood off. With that said, I would like to put some quick disconnects at the base of where the wire heads up the a-pillar. Any ideas where I can pick up some single male and female disconnects that are at the least weather resistant?

Thanks!

Just a couple threads down. Looks like the weatherpack ones are the best bet.

Nice, I am going to run down to NAPA and see what they have for the Weatherpacks!

My fear is that they are not going to have anything for an 8 gauge wire.

Thanks!

Weather pack make a connector that handles the bigger wire. I think it was the 218 or something. What are you using 8ga for?

Ya I was looking at the site, did not see anything in an 8 gauge.

The wire is used to run my 40" LED lightbar

You don't need 8 gauge for 11 amps DP,, the wire and plug in the 40 in LEDS we installed only comes with 12 gauge.

Keep it simple for lights etc and stop pissing money and time away... just get a good ratchet crimper that adjusts from 12ga-18ga and get some weather tight bullet connectors from the auto part store. Leave some slack (couple inches) tucked away... every couple years you cut and re-crimp another $3.00 worth of connectors if needed. In all honesty unless you are in Pismo or Oregon dunes often you won't have issues most likely. For the average So Cal / Az rider it is dry out and you are fine. If you are still worried then get some heat shrink and go over each time you are done reconnecting... its cheap also and readily available. You don't need those complicated high dollar disconnects unless you're taking your Rhino swimming.
