Change out the dome light bulbs to LEDs. They draw much less power and your battery will last longer.

Or, wire in one of these simple modules. All the new cars have them and I'm pretty sure the Jeeps that are newer than '04 have them.

Universal timer module link

Simple circuit.

I buy mine at walmart. Normally come with 2 or 4 yr warranty. They have replaced 3 of mine so far no questions asked.

I would 2nd the LED lights, then you wont end up killing your new battery. The amount of energy they use is significantly less then stock. Stock bulb uses 12 volts and .97 amps, which would calculate to 11.64 watts/hour. A LED for that same bulb would use 12 volts, .35 amps and would use 4.1 watts/hour.

All that really relates to is that you could leave a LED on almost 3 times as long as a typical stock bulb without killing your battery.

Currently looking for:
-Leaf Springs that you want to get rid of.

And that PAC TR-7 module is a piece of cake to hook up. It will shut the lights off after a timed period you set it for. To make the light work again you just turn the switch off and then on again and it stays on for the timed period again. Hookup is really simple.

50 or 60 if I recall correctly. It also depends on the yr warranty you get.
