When you are doing any custom wiring of accessories like fuel pumps, electric fans, lights, etc., you need to make sure that you have good, quality components, and that you know the basics of wiring so you don't have to go back to redo installations or, worse yet, have your ride burn down due to electrical issues. We stopped by K-Four Switches to talk to the master of maximum voltage, Richard Hopper. Richard is a self-taught electrical engineer who supplies shops like McKenzie's, Kartek, Off-Road Warehouse, and Pacific Warehouse with electrical components to fit all sorts of off-road toys. K-Four's specialty is triple-sealed switches that will live for many times longer than conventional-sealed switches when put in the dirtiest and dustiest of conditions (like on the dash of your sandrail).

Richard walked us through the basics of what our wiring choices were and a few of the components that you can use to make electrical systems topnotch.
