Thank you!

The cliff notes version is that I ran a wire from the Aux 4 switch inside the cab (under the passenger side dash) to the back of the Jeep (underneath all the trim). I ran that wire to a diode then tied into the aftermarket backup lights. I also ran a wire from the Jeep's back up light, to another diode, then out to the aftermarket backup lights. Here is a good thread that goes into detail about how to do it. https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/backup-lights.10763/ and I did mine similar to post #123 (found here https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/backup-lights.10763/page-9), except I didn't use the aux wires under the hood. There are few different ways to accomplish the same thing, but I did all my wiring connections in the passenger side brake light housing. I can go into more detail if necessary, but I just made sure everything was clean. Some have used the wiring under the hood to tie into the aux switches and then run their wires through the frame rails, but I didn't go this route. I wanted to keep everything clean so I went with the interior aux switch connection. More work, but everything is out of the elements. Here are some videos if you decide to go this route. and and
Good luck and let me know if you have any specific questions!
Awesome, thank you for taking to time to provide such a comperhensive respone! Much appriciated! Cheers.

Great looking Jeep!

What is your opinion of the Baja Boss tires?

Haven’t posted in a while. But added some RR Max Terrain fender flares and AAL inner fenders.

it was “good”...but not great. The RR Flares are textured, so if you want it to be flawless, it will take some considerable prep. They are not bad though, and definitely something i can live with. The trade off of having a factory “trimmed” look, outweighs the anal retentive tendencies I have of the texture coming through the paint. Lol.

Thanks for taking the time to respond. For what it’s worth, in the pics they look great. I definitely sympathize with wanting chopped fenders but with a factory look. There are hardly any good looking fender or fender chop options on the market. Your solution is one of the best looking I’ve seen

Great looking rig. That's exactly what I've been looking for.
