Default new/ project truck

Hello everyone. Im working on my project truck, a 1980 dodge power wagon w150. I've had an electronical fire in my truck an am in the process of rewiring it. I was wondering if I can bypass and not use the starter relay. Any help would be great.

You unfortunately can't run without starter relayed. The gear reduction takes a lot of power to spin. And even if you go with a regular non gear reduction you still need bump up in amps.
