Sure we can afford it but why? Your reasoning makes no sense. Pull it once and you never have to again, it takes all of five minutes, need the dome light? Turn the knob. Lol. Sorry, but I dont understand your reasoning at all.
Because I actually want my lights to function normally when I do have doors on, which is usually monday thru friday, our when it decides to rain every day for a week straight.

Other than that I would say simply because it is my jeep and my money and I will do as I please with them both.

I also made a swith. Yes I like the OPTION of my light working automatically if the driver or passenger door is opened without having to turn the stalk. I don't understand WTF people are bashing a little feature some people like as a convience.

Exactly. If I wanted the thing off all the time then pulling the fuse would be great, but I don't. I got tired of pulling it, putting it back, pulling it, putting it back, pulling it............ So I bought a switch. Don't regret it at all.
Is it so hard to understand that I want my dome lights to come on when I open my doors if they are on the jeep?

It just doesnt make sense to 99% of us. Im not bashing it in anyway, its a good idea but the fuse for most is better.

Yes, the fuse is fine for most. But if you are pulling the fuse on Friday, then putting it back in on Monday just to pull it again on the following Friday.... you start to think, there must be a better way.

If I was pulling the fuse and leaving it out then yeah, I would. I just got tired of dealing with it as have others.

Part of the problem is the fact that I live in South Louisiana... we have a saying here, "if you don't like the weather, hang around for 5 minutes, it's likely to change." Due to that I have found myself pulling the doors off after work on a Friday evening just to put them back on before I go to bed... and then taking them off again on Sunday. I happen to like having my dome lights work when i have my doors on and with a switch I can activate or deactivate them faster than you can even open your glove box.

...and with that I believe I am done. There is nothing else to say.

I'm not too broke to spend $15 on something that allows me to kill the switch without even unlocking the glove box. If you are, then you shouldn't be driving a vehicle that gets such bad mileage.
Dragonii Hit it right on the head of the nail.

As for all the nay sayers, I spent the $15 and am really happy. To each their own but I do appreciate the suggestions too. Stoked I have it installed and it is easy to use. Just reach over from the drivers seat and CLICK. Done

It seems that pulling the fuse also disables the headlight reminder too (which maybe some people would be happy for too).

I installed the same kit just recently. The only complaint I have is that the two leads are kind of loose and don't seem to want to stay in, like Peepers had mentioned.

They do seem okay when they're both inserted at the same time, kind of pressed against each other. I just hope they stay there.

Also, though I had a suspicion before I ordered it, I looked at what I had got and thought "Duh, I could have gotten this stuff from the hardware store." Ah well.
