What are we going to use the AUX buttons for?

    Christmas Lights and an accessory outlet for the ARB fridge. Maybe a winch one day...

    The AUX switches have their own fuses, are programmable (on with ACC, always on, momentary, etc) and are generally easy to wire up. It’s nice to not have to add an extra relay and fuse to your AUX circuit just to power something.

    The aux switches in my F-250 aren’t programmable, but the ease of tapping in to them under the dash or in the engine bay is worth a few extra bucks IMHO.

    Also, I’m not a fan of having a bunch of extra wiring hanging off my battery, and it’s nice to be able to control everything from one place...

    You should also know that there are two additional wires in the bundle with the Aux lines; one for ignition and one for always on, so for something like a dash cam you don’t need to use a switch in order to have it easily powered.

    Hey for those with Jeeps, think there will be a way to replace the aux buttons with buttons labelled for their function (aftermarket)? Would a label maker label look close enough color-wise or cheesy? I rather have the button say "winch" over "Aux 1".

    The only thing I am committed to is a fun air horn and an air compressor....

    Love how you can change the functions of the buttons... way fun

    So what else makes sense for the buttons?

    Okay giving it more thought.
    1 - Winch
    2 - On Board Air
    3 - Extra lights
    4 - More lights? Not sure
    Think CB will just go to ignition wire, or constant wire.

    1 - Air compressor - to inflate tires, paddle boards, etc
    2 - Water Pump - connected to some sort of water container (hopefully ARB makes a water tank bumper for the JL soon) so I can have running water at the beach or campground
    3 - Lightbar - because mall crawler
    4 - Rock Lights - help see at night when unpacking gear... And to party it up at TGI Fridays

    Contant Wire - Dashcam
    Ingition Wire - CB

    100 bucks gets ya one class, she did that, gonna do another one, they gotta spend time behind wheel ultimately.
    I got a steering wheel and gas/brakes for xbox and am going to get this new driving train program to help her get used to backing up and all that with less risk to me.

    She is signed up for another class as well. Main issue is kids dont seem to really be all that interested these days. Man, was driving a truck in an equipment yard at 12ish, and could not wait to be 16 and get license.. times change
