Added a 8 relay bluetooth board to the Jeep. My Android Samsung Galaxy III phone controls the board.

Got the board off Ebay for $59 shipped free from china. Took a little over a week to get it. IT runs off 5v. It came with a USB cord and a 110v to 5v wall plug. It has a USB PWR plug at one end and a round PWR plug at the other.








Here is me testing it out.




I picked up a bunch of these a while ago from the JY so I spliced one to the one on the lower console (right one constant power). I also spliced in an extra power wire to use to run power through the relays to trigger the relays under the hood.





Then I used one of these USB receptacles I had laying around and put it in the receptacle. Pluged the USB cable in and ran it and the PWR wire up under the cover above the steering wheel. That is where all the wiring goes from my light switches and light controller box.




I mounted the board under the panel above the steering wheel. Plugged in the USB cord. Ran the PWR cord into one relay and jumped it to all the others. This PWR will only trigger the relays under the hood that actually PWR the lights and such.

Then I ran the wires from each relay and tapped it into the existing wiring that goes to under the hood. I only have used 4 so far. LED bars, KCs, side lights and back up lights. Didnt take pics of this because its easy and I got lazy. LOL


Here is a video I took. It starts of with me being about 20 yards from the jeep and at the end I'm about 80 yards from the jeep.



Couple diagrams for those that pm'd me.

Thanks. I think I'll get the most use out of it when camping. Although if you have an old phone it could be used as regular light switched in the cab without wires. I have two old Android phones that would work perfect.

Yep. Last year I built a set for FOSTER79 on here. He was in Mass. But we met up in Pa for the Bantam Jeep Festival. It was gunna cost about $80 a door to ship. Probably more now.

Well let me know if you ever have a set made and if they need a home. If I start saving now by the time any get made and ready I might be able to still get a set. Your jeep is what I hope mine will one day be lol.

Replaced the bearings on the D30. It was chattering a little and a little loose. Inspected the gears and they looked fine. Now it runs smooth again. Also...

Tis the season...

Didnt make it to the JYs today. Went and helped friend with doing his breaks. But turned out to be a good parts day anyway. guy on his block was having a garage sale and had an axle sitting out. Turned out to be a HP D30 froma 2012 JK. He had swapped axles on his for 44/60s and already sold the rear. It has 4.88 gears and drilled out for high steer. He wanted $350 but got to talking with him about my jeep and what I had built and he said he'd $150 if when he got some tube I'd bend him a stinger, slider extensions and roof rack. Sounded like a good deal since I could bend all that in about 2hrs. Also got extended bump stops and a new adjustable TB bracket.
