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!
