The additional switch was for the two windshield mounted off road lights the the Jeep Jamboree could be outfitted for, along with the optional fog lights that most other Jeeps could get. So, there was actually three (3) light switches all together on the Jamboree that could be optioned.
1) Standard Headlight switch
2) Factory Fog light switch (under dash)
3) Off Road lights switch (installed just below and to the right of the headlight switch)

Use the original cigerette lighter as a switch.

The front roof rafters in the front were all doubled up, 2 x10 ties were installed on each rafter. The rafters in the rear were "converted" into upside down roof trusses. There is a three season pouch on the back side of the garage. the ceiling joists are one leg, the garage ceiling joist is another leg and the shed roof rafters are the third leg. we tied them all together to make triangles for strength. see below.

We did not use nails, but deck screws as fasteners. It is not coming apart or falling down. Have gone through four winters now with snow loads, right now there is ten inches of snow on it.

The cigerette lighter when pushed in will complete a circuit. Power wire coming in, wire going out to the relay. Push it in and lights come on.

Ive seen a few writeups where people do it for a hidden ignition power wire. No start unless the lighter is pushed in.

Or you could easily hide a small toggle under the dash to keep the original appearance.

Neat idea. I am still looking at the two original options.

Looks like it even came with a 25A circuit breaker module.

I will not need it though as it will only be turning on and off the trigger circlet for the relay for the driving lights, if I use it still looking for a factory original driving light switch.

I have an original rocker switch for Jeep fog lights.

Thought I would ask if anyone knows the wire codes.

The switch has four pins

The harness has three wires
red with white strip heave gauge, may be a 12 gauge (feed wire????)
Gray with a black strip light gauge (14 or 16 ground?)
blue or purple may be 12 , could be 14 (switched hot?)

If no one knows I will go play with it in the basement and let you know.

Ok, this is what I found and it may not be correct for the original Jeep wiring.

My intention would be to use this switch to complete the circuit of the rely for my driving lights.

Jeep may have used it for the ground leg of the relay for the fog lights.

Red with the white strip is the ground
Blue is the switched hot
Gray with the black strip is the hot feed.

With it wired this way the indicator light comes on when the test light (driving lights (which are run with a rely (switch not carrying the load for the driving lights))) come on



and goes off when the test light is off.

Ok, more information current poll has one more vote for the original fog light location than the other.

This is what the switch looks like mounted in the original holes. It is slightly offset below the headlight switch, and slightly proud of the dash.

It does not interfere with my legs so is a valid location.

Looking at this picture I have noticed that my Crown aftermarket clock as stop working again. I guess it is time to install the original clock I picked up awhile ago, and to think that I almost listed it on fee-bay two weeks ago

See the above post so you do not miss before and after.

The switch can be snapped into the bracket two ways, any idea which was the original way, not that it makes much difference. The fog light pointing down with the beam crossed out might make some sense as that is the off position?

As this can be mounted and wired without effecting the second choice, leaving it open for investigation, I will do this first.
