This reminds of a friend in high school, who mounted spotlights in his rear window, on a switch (for tailgaters). It didn't go over very well when a state trooper (NJ) came up behind him.

Remember you have to use AUX #1 and AUX #2 for the phasers and photon torpedoes due to the power levels. Sorry couldn't resist. :giggle:
What about the flux capacitor... AUX 3 or 4?

Since I drive a Jeep, I tend to be light on the right foot and as a result, I am a bit slower than some others.
Around these parts, drivers can be rather aggressive and are quick to tail-gate.
This got me thinking. I need a James Bond style oil slick. This of course would be a illegal, but what about something else, like cola?

I have since ordered a generic window washer retrofit kit. I plan to run the hose out the back, near the rear camera and attach a spray nozzle on it. I will then fire cola or other annoying, but non-damaging liquid at the cars who love to get right on the rear bumper.

The other idea / plan I had was to dedicate one switch to powering a RCA splitter. These normally always run to port A until a voltage is applied and then take input B. This would be an easy / cheap way to get front camera AND still have it in HD.

Anyone else have "strange" or interesting uses for their AUX buttons?
Hook it up to a plastic bottle you could PEE into! Lol

This took me down memory lane...

Way back in the early 80s when I lived in the barracks at Travis AFB, we used to go to the U-Pull-It outside the main gate for parts and sometimes just to walk the yard. They charged you $1 just to get in, so we always made sure we took out $2 worth before leaving. I still have a digital dash clock that came out of something.

Anyway, we grabbed a windshield washer spray pump and a nozzle off something, and I mounted it under the hood of my Mustang II. The nozzle would spray water out the grill and onto the car in front of me at the stoplight. Was unbelievably funny at the time....

Ive thought about wiring up a small "hi-beam on" icon to show in my rear window when those people come up blasting their high beams. And if they do not turn it off then the LED pods on the rear could be fired off quickly to return the favor.....

That's funny! That pick and pull is still there. Saw it last month on the way to the base.

I always thought it’d be funny to get a digital display to light up messages to the tailgater. Oh the fun you could have with that!

I like your rear sprayer idea, but I’d use it differently. I’d use it on the trail where I make it up a tough obstacle, and then I use the rear sprayer to spray something slippery on the obstacle to make it tougher on my buddies
:CWL:

I suppose if you have some truck-nutz under your jeep, you could use one of the switches to spray (mark) the obstacle as you go by.

Good luck getting the Jeep to 88 MPH!

@pablo_max3045 If you go with the cola idea, make sure it's diet. The sugar in regular cola will clog up your lines and nozzle. :giggle:
