After installing my $75 body lift, I was having issues shifting into 2nd and 4th gears. Solved that for $10 with a new shifter boot from autozone.

I also went ahead and installed some DIY quick disconnects.

Its for when I'm camping. The switches allow me to to turn on all the outside lights (Front-side-rear) without getting into the jeep. Then there is 2 110v 1 12v and 1 USB.

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.

That's pretty cool!

Your breathing reminds me of when you're really hurt in a video game. And kinda is creepy. Cool product though!

That's one of the coolest mods ever. Nice work. It's all hidden? Does it work with the key off and out? You mentioned it was constant power.

All hidden behind dash panels.

Yeah I spliced and added another cigaret lighter plug behind the one that's in the jeep already and has power whether the jeep is on or off.

Superb work on one heck of a cool mod! I am hoping you will submit a thorough post on your work with s wiring diagram etc. I love this upgrade but would never be inclined to go it alone on the project. Thanks for sharing.
