Is there any timeframe on revealing the secret item?

Jeez this is worse than the excitement that builds up on Christmas only to find out that big box was a bunch of clothes.

I came home to CHRISTMAS!!!

5 Tyco SPDT Relays, a 12voltguy custom switch panel, and a pair of Metalcloak sliders.





Not sure why 12voltguy didn't include the in-cab winch control wiring I ordered so they'll be getting an email.

Windshield banner/old trail passes removed


New hood decals added



Trail kit swapped to new box



And spent the evening cleaning/rearranging the garage to squeeze in more parts for storage.

Still got the stock skid on? I thought you had cut out and cleaned up some flat steel for your new one?

It's still at the shop. Needs some slight grinding, some washers welded where a few of the holes didn't line up and had to be redrilled, and paint.

I am considering dropping it back down to the stock skid temporarily to fix some interference/squeaking while at school.

Too lazy to reformat for my build, so here's a copy/paste.

Where to start...
Finally got the sheared e-brake bolt out by drilling the whole nutsert. Tapped it for a 5/16" bolt an reinstalled the assembly. Adjusted the e-brake and it's working nice again.


Pulled the carpet out of the garage, pressure washed it and reinstalled in the Jeep. Reinstalled the console. Reran all the wiring for the amp and put the amp and subs back in (after finishing bedlining the sub box). Put the back seat back in, then attacked the interior with cleaners. Then I washed the whole Jeep, Back to Black'd the fenders and mirrors, PlastX'd the windows, and treated all the wheel center caps with Goo Gone (a neat trick I discovered by accident). I found some bolts at the shop to properly reinstall the 3rd brake light/wheel cap. Then I loaded it and the JK up to head back to Raleigh for the year.



Also fixed the damned squeak in the rear. Turned out the coil shifted and was rubbing the coil retainer on the Artec mount.

Confirmed my big order from West Marine arrived back home. Also finalized a big order with OTRATTW after 2 weeks of emailing back and forth. Sounds like James is swamped over there. But I saved a ton of money by finding some of the products I was originally going to buy at West Marine at OTRATTW for way less. Didn't even know they carried all those wiring accessories but they do. For example, got a Blue Sea Systems 12 circuit dist block for nearly half the price. I was already placing an 8 switch order so may as well add to it.

Got an email from OTRATTW. Switches made and ready to go out. He just wanted to make sure they were what I wanted. And of course I edited to hide my secret switches.

Yes, a switch for my backup lights. Replacing the mini rocker currently in my dash.

And I have LED strips that I will be installing as rock lights.

Can you clarify a little more on the wiring schematic? Are those relays or switches?
And another hint as to what the bigger box is?
