In a DC system, black is used to mark the ground (-) wire, and various colors are used to mark positive (+) wire. Most aftermarket electrical has color coding backwards because a lot of times they can be used AC/DC

The BW marker lights have black and white wires, The Jeep has black and white wires The BW tech tells me that on some JK's The wiring is swapped (mine must have been)

I finally got a JK! Done a couple of things to it in the 5 days that I had it, Jeep Slush mats, Optima Yellow Top, Sylvania Silverstar Ultras and waiting for some 3/4" spacers for the front. Just doing some small changes to my 2010 Rubicon.

And I am loving my Jeep!

I ignored it to mess with the í68 Commando. Got the new springs and axles in. There is the JK in the back


But Iíll do a JK oil change latter today.

Never trust a happy man

I off road because I have a Jeep. I don't have a Jeep because I off road. Above all my Jeep is a convertible. That's where my love is for the brand ...convertible overkill
