    No relay? If your not using a relay just make sure that the switch can take the amps.

      Yes use a relay.

      There is a dual fan setup here but you can see how to use a relay..

        o.k. I am a dumbass, I went to autozone and bought a relay, it is an 40amp relay with four post on it, 1 is copper and one is gold and the other two are silver, I cant figure this thing out, I can take a pic of it if anyone wants to help me out..thanks

          Take a pic, but it should be similar to this.

          2 will be for your low power wire that you run to a switch inside. (85 & 86)
          These will energize (magnatize) the coil pulling the strip of metal down to close the circuit.

          2 will be for the high power wire you run to your fans. (30 & 87)

          Pay attention to the "original" one in this illustration.

          Would recommend ground side switching both of these circuits.

          Terrible idea putting those wheels on...
