Please report back on this. 99% sure I grounded my fucking intercom. I get same shit. More lights and accessories are on.. the more the whine is. Like a built in supercharger bro. haha.

Mine is Rugged Radios

reminds me of this vid of the danzio class 1 car. the audio of the whine is terrible. Crash at 1:13 is probably cuz the whine was so loud. hahah

Update, took the ground off the intercom and it didn’t turn on.
Added a rugged noise filter and it did help, but not 100%
Headset wires are no longer ran alongside power cables.
Getting a new battery tomorrow!

well son of a bitch. maybe I will still try on mine
the only way its still work is if you have the intercom mounted to a steel panel thats grounded to the chassis. otherwise i dont see how the thing will get power to its power source from a ground in the radio wire.

mine is mounted directly to steel plates welded to floor. so could maybe be possible if body of intercom is grounded. My truck body is for sure grounded.

I know I’m late to the light bar party but I have a 30” bar of the same oriental origin from the eBay. It’s more than enough light. Just the outer ambers are brighter than my headlights. I’ve done 50-70mph with it through all different terrains at night and it’s never been insufficient.

Do you have a link to this light bar? I'm looking for this exact kind

Been driving the hell out of the truck lately. Each trip i get more comfortable and push it faster and faster. Found the breaking point of my 31 spline axles this last trip.
It was bound to happen at some point.
Decided that a full floater isn’t in the cards right now so I’m going to step up to 35 spline axles for now. I think they should last a while with my 35s! Well, I hope. Anyways here’s some pics from a couple trips in February
