So in the new quadratec magazine I got I saw the "TJ Dome Light Switch" kit which is essentially an on-off switch with an in-line fuse running to the door switch fuse. It allows owners of TJ model jeeps to run with no doors and not have to pull a fuse everytime.
I decided to save a bit of money and try to build my own. I found several write ups but none really had what I wanted so I did my own.
First go out to an auto parts store and a hardware store and get
A switch, and in-line fuse, about 6 feet of 18/2 lamp wire, some fuse taps, and heat shrink tubing
I also needed a 10 amp fuse and L-bracket which I had laying around
Remove the glove box (obviously) and remove the fuse in the bottom right
connect the fuse taps to one side of the lamp wire and the in-line fuse with a fuse tap on it as well
use the heat shrink tubing to attach the in-line fuse to the lamp wire
should look like this (sorry for the crappy photo)
now the mounting location is what really made me
on the drivers side of the jeep find this
the torx bolt is removed using a t-30
now mount the switch to the L-bracket with a bolt and you will have to drill out a hole in the L-bracket for the torx bolt to fit through
place the bracket between the actual dash and metal on the jeep and put the torx bolt through the hole
after that place fuse taps on the back of the switch and crimp the wires into the taps
then run the wires behind the dash and zip tie it to the rest of the wires so it's out of the way. when everything is wired and ready the fuse box should resemble this
and this is the switch finished, wired up, and working
Sorry for some missing pictures, forgot to get a picture of the bracket but any standard L-bracket will do (mine was a little thick so I used a grinder to thin it up a little)
This whole setup cost around $10 for everything
Any questions feel free to ask.
