+1, and if you don't have a fuse puller, a gentle tug with a pair of needlenose pliers should do the trick.

Fuse is handy...but depending on what year you have they will auto shut off after 20 minutes. Mine do anyhow. Was readin that in the owners manual thought it was interesting.

I managed to get two small springs for going over the door light switch and locking the plunger in the closed position. I would have thought you US folk would have something similar. It was a rugged ridge spring made specially for this purpose and cheap enough not to concern. If required I may be able to provide a part number? I think I still have the package they came in.

i think pulling a fuse is cheaper and probably just as easy =P

I think I've seen a rocker switch that plugs into the fuse spot (and has a fuse in it) that will turn the power on or off going thru that fuse, for only a few bucks. I think I'll go that route and mount the switch in some inconspicuis(s/p) location

Mine has the windscreen washers on the same fuse, when I pulled the fuse I didn't get the light but also couldn't use the windscreen washers. The spring clips were much quicker and easier. Job done right.

hmmm thats really weird. my fuse for dome lights is #4 thats specifically labeled for the dome light. when pulled the only thing it disables is the dome light and the dinger to let me know i left the head lights on since the jeep can't tell when the doors are open.

is your jeep left side drive? i wonder if you have a short or something

No mine is driver on the right, there may be some subtle differences, never thought of that. Maybe that's why we have theses springs for the door switches and you guys don't need them, you can just pull the fuse.
