The welder control box is easy to mount and doesn’t take up much room. We installed ours on the fender with a small mounting plate that we made at home.

The heart of the welder is the high-output alternator. For our application the unit was a direct replacement of the stock unit. The stock charge wire must be taped off and the old exciter wire is attached to the new control-box harness. You then make one power and one ground connection to the control-box harness and plug in the alternator wires. The heart of the welder is the high-output alternator.

The final step of the installation is to connect the welder control-box harness to the battery’s positive and negative terminals and install the throttle cable.

Have you ever been miles from civilization, having fun driving your truck down a rough trail, only to hear the snap of breaking steel? Broken parts are a part of life in hard-core ’wheeling. Part of the fun can be found in recounting tales of replacing broken parts on the trail. The trouble is, not all parts can easily be replaced. Sometimes you just need to weld broken stuff back together.
