    I can't speak to the switch, but the Cigarette lighter outlet in the back of the jeep is live all the time. (Should have the battery icon on it).

    I used switches with a halo in my setup.
    This is my setup from an earlier post that answers your question.

    To add to this - the 12V power outlet in the back is either battery-direct or ignition-controlled, depending on the fuse position. You can change it under the hood by installing the fuse in F43 or F45.

    Who here has recently the JL version from Amazon? I was wondering if the JL version was flipped so the curve fit better and the wires exited on the driver side.

    Any ideas for mounting this with a soft top? I used my hard top September - May but it would be nice to use it for camping trips over the summer. I saw someone posted an image with the light mounted on the tailgate. Thoughts?

    Here is my $6 take on adding a LED Hatch Light. After stumbling across this thread and realizing I had the light laying around, I figured why not.

    Does anyone have issues with the Brawlee bar flickering while coming on and going off? I tied it into the rear interior light to come on and off with the doors. Any help appreciated.

    Sounds like a bad connection on the wire or it is not getting enough power. You may need to add a relay for additional power. I would try plugging it in with the 12v adapter that came with light just to ensure it is not an issue with the light. Good luck!

    Does anyone have a copy of the manual for the newish (2019+ I guess) kit that comes with the way to splice it into the rear electrical plug (the big one you unplug before removing hardtop)? I installed mine tonight and of course I ran off to read that somewhere and it disappeared.

    I can't find it on their site (it has got to be here and I'm just missing it... I keep saying) or anywhere on google, waiting for a response from them.

    Mine flickers when I unlock the doors and just as they go off but it doesn't bother me. Works just fine when the doors are open and that's really all that matters to me

    I dont think they ever provided instructions for that. Look back on the first page of posts on this thread there are some good diagrams that people provided, thats how I did mine.
