I think (think being the key word) that you could. During my testing of the wiring I was thinking the same thing to myself. You'd need a relay in the engine compartment that was triggered the "on" signal by the reverse light wiring from the stock harness, but it should technically work (although they recommend against it on the product manual).

Caution!!! Under construction!!!!!! Caution!!!
Finishing a 4.0 Cyl.head swap, Just got an AX-15 NP231J combo to replace the busted t-case and craptacular BA10/5. Adding Nutter bypass. Probably more to come before it is back as a DD!

Gave the TJ some attention today. Woke up early and went to AutoZone... $93 later and I had oil change supplies for both the Jeep and my Audi, as well as an oil filter wrench, new TJ air filter, and a funnel! I followed Audi spec, as she's a more picky car - and got the Syntec Castrol oil, but the Jeep has the distinct pleasure of moving around some generic Valvoline 10w-30 oil. Woohoo! I took my time with it, and let the oil pan drain for half an hour or so. Smooth removal, although it took some muscle to get the oil filter off... the guy who did the last change (wasn't me, I was still in FL) certainly cranked it down like a bamf.

Anyway, the air filter was probably the OEM one that it shipped with (a scary thought) but it was dirty as anything and was the Mopar brand. I also painted the strobe brackets, and re-synced the lights (unfortunately required some ad-lib wiring) but they are looking good and I'm happy! I've got to replace one of the switches on my switch panel though as it became inoperable today while I was using it. Jeep drives well, and I'm really happy with it. Just have to start saving for the SYE/TT/CV/BL/MML gig.

If you're religious, say a prayer for me and wish me luck with passing inspection. I'm hoping the guy I usually take it to doesn't notice that she grew 6 inches this year.

Photos from the day...

I don't think thats the OEM air filter. That looks to be a FRAM and I thought the stock one was black? Not that it really matters.

Trash truck came this morning, but I'm pretty sure it said MOPAR on it which is what made me really rush to replace it! Whatever though, new one is nice and clean

Went over to Clay's this morning to keep working on his TJ but he didn't get the control arm bushings he needed so I went home! Ended up going on a 30 mile bike ride up to Danvers and back, then working on the Jeep and detailing the Audi. Complete wash, wax, buff, and polish job that took me hours, but the results are so worth it. I then laid out under the TJ and replaced the track bar and drag link bushings that needed to be replaced. I had to borrow SaxMan's TRE puller which is why it took me so long to get around to. All in all an easy job, and I painted the drag link which was a little rusty.

Just got to get new zerk fittings for the drag link and TRE so that I can pump more grease up in there.

Exciting news update: my wallet despises me!


Ordered the NOVAK shifter to fix my TC linkage (also will be beneficial with the tummy tuck that will come around next year or so).

Also ordered a 1.75" spacer for my front coils to level the Jeep out after the 8.8 added some lift in the back.

Make up your mind already! See you tomorrow for the exciting conclusion of my axle swap!
