    Get rid of the spaghetti harness with all the plugs.

    The two fused power leads and their ground go to your battery.

    All you need is to connect the purple control wire to the sPod/SwitchPro/Garmin trigger point.

    Option 1 (Cheapest): Cut off the ARB plug and crimp a wire to the trigger.

    Option 2 (Inexpensive): Buy an sPod ARB adapter for $18. This gives you four wires. Unless you are running air locker solenoids, all you need is to run one wire - pretty sure it is the red one - to the Garmin. You can fold the other three wires over and tape them over in case you ever install an air locker.

    Option 3: (Expensive): Get the control and power wires from Blaze Offroad. I think they make custom control wires for $60 and power wires with a fuse for $100.

    Suspension & wheels,

    finally found an arb twin for a good deal!
    will probably go with option 1, just got another question, idk if you can tell the wiring on the pic but is this good enough?

    1. just wanna know if spending $$$ on pricey battery terminals is a good investment(or is it better than Amazon cheeps like on the pic)

    2. Or cheap amazon battery terminals and just use terminal blocks with the power switch and compressor?

    hopefully I make sense

    Thanks,

    On the pic , Garmin direct to battery and arb purple wire to Garmin, arb's power direct to battery? just wanna know if I'm good/safe , or would be better to add more safety connections?

    If you're the sort of guy who invests in an ARB twin, why go cheap on terminals? SDHQ has a good set.

    Garmin to battery, Garmin to the ARB purple (works as a relay/trigger, not a power source), and ARB power to the battery. The ARB twin draws heavy amps. One exception would be if you use a Bluesea SafetyHub, which takes high amp fuses.

    Suspension & wheels,
    thanks for getting back to me quick ,
    And great i would then buy those battery terminals,

    question on the safety hub , as would it be better to do this than going direct to the battery if i use those sdhq bat terminals?

    Most things you can power from the Garmin switch. A winch needs a direct battery connection - too much for the SafetyHub. The SafetyHub is somewhere in the middle - probably not all that useful. Maybe the ARB twin and power to a BCDC for a dual battery. Both of which could be connected to battery terminals with fuses. Easier fusing with the SafetyHub, but you would need to find a place for it.
