contdevelop Finally gonna post a recent pic here.

After owning this jeep for 9 years and averaging 1000-1500 miles per since its my toy and spare.... I decided to do some mods.
Wife bought me a new "take off" set of 5 tires and wheels from a 2017 JKUR. I bought her a 2017 JKUR new a couple years ago and love the tires so she got me the set for my birthday.
Then I did the 4 inch lift, new shocks, CV rear shaft and SYE kit. My buddy totaled his TJ rubicon so i got a deal on his warn winch and i bought a winch bumper.
Never selling my baby.

Yeah I'd try it with the switch out of the dash but still connected. That way you can wiggle the connector and wiring around and see if it is wiring related or a switch problem.

I would try cleaning the connector for the switch, and try it again with the switch outside of the dash so you can move it around. There might be an issue with the plug itself or the wires. Where did you get the replacement switch from? I've had switches, in particular XJ power window switches, from Autozone/Advance that were bad right out of the box.

GAragecouple Took some time today to make a video and share my favorite 5 mods under $50. Sometimes money can be tight and I figured this would be a cool video for those like me who don't have a ton of funds. Cheers jeep Family!

p.s. You don't want visitation if you really liked your Jeep. I've sold all but one of mine out of my county for a reason. It kills me to see them and the $h!t condition people keep them compared to me. I still miss my 1st TJ.

I've seen several of your Jeeps come and go over the last 8 years. At least my buddy has a JKU on 42s and another JK on 40s. He's going to build the TJ for his daughter. He owns his own Jeep shop (Addictive Autoworks), so I know he'll take care of it.

After I got that mess cleaned up the best that i could- I resumed the process of trying to shove the plug in-- no go, to old and lost my youth. BUT-- not all of my brains and experience. Ended up having to take a pry bar and pry off the frame to shove it in

Its hell getting old

Arty McGeep Wow awesome looking rig you got there! This is my first Jeep. It was bone stock in super clean condition when I bought it from my ma a couple months ago. So, needless to say I’m still kind of beginner as far as Jeeps go, but it’s coming along pretty nicely. I’ve been an automotive technician for 30 plus years, so not totally green...
