For peace of mind, I decided to install this. I read up on other installs, decided not to go direct to battery, and got some good ideas.

First what do you get for $80-$100 depending on where you purchase it – you get this:

I used my Aux Switch (simple hookup to Aux2) so didn’t use the switch and associated wire harnesses. I went with the Strong Tie 24Z Bracket, not the smaller 23 which had been recommended.

The 24Z is a perfect fit and the right strength to never have to worry about it. It slips between the Fender and Chassis and allows the Solenoid mounting a large enough surface. On the 23 Bracket, the ends of the Solenoid mounts were protruding past the ends of the Bracket. I then drilled the holes for the Solenoid and Bracket mounting and painted it with this product:

Great coverage after 4 coats and a little extra protection. After that made up my Ground Strap Harness

and connected it to a chassis ground stud available right at the Bracket location. Then added a wire loom to the provided positive harness.

After that I drilled 23/64” holes for M6 Inserts, painted the holes for protection, installed the Inserts

and then bolted everything up - used blue Loctite on fasteners-

(Do not forget to slip on the Terminal Boots) Installation came out good and is very sturdy.

Looks good. I just did that and I am running it off aux 3 and mounted the driving lights relay to the bracket as well.

I've been looking for a way to install my power-interrupt kit, and think this might be the way I go.

Question:

I don't have this rivet gun, I just have one from Harbor Freight (https://www.harborfreight.com/13-in-heavy-duty-professional-hand-riveter-58018.html). I've only ever used a rivet gun for one previous job so I'm not super familiar with the capabilities.

Could the gun I have be used in place of the one you linked?

Looks like the one you posted is for standard rivets. The one I posted is for Rivet nuts. Like in this pic

that’s what I figured, but figured I’d ask before I buy another riveter. I appreciate your reply!

you're referencing a rivet gun - not a threaded insert tool - I wouldn't recommend rivets but that's up to you.

Out of curiosity (I have no clue about this stuff) - what purpose does a power interruptor kit serve in the Wrangler? When or in what situation does one need this?

I like the idea of being able to remove the assembly, just in case. I’ll be taking your route.

I bought the rivet gun when I installed my bolt hood lock and think that may be the only and last use I’ll get out of it
