Relays Worth It For Door Windows?

What do you guys think?

Windows are closer to the front switch so the voltage drop is less. They're lighter so less current so again less drop.

I've got the carpet out and am about to reinstall the wires so now's the time to do it.

Hmmm... For reliability? Maybe. For serviceability? Probably not. I mean, what you are saying makes 100% sense I just worry you are creating more failure points, more non-standard configuration, etc.

Absolutely. Before I installed mine the windows would barely go down if not at all.

I'm undecided. I don't feel like doing it but it'll be a while before I actually have to so maybe I'll run the signal wires to the rears now.

What did you use for the front switches?
