badrubi03 all the fuse does is let the lights come on automatically. sense i had my jeep and aint had my fuse in sense, when u cut the truck off, they wont come on unless u turn the knob. they still work, just u gotta make them cut on. i dont think ill ever put the fuse back in.cheapest and easiest way right there.

price=0$

I didn't know they would still work after pulling the fuse, though I've never used the factory switch to see if they worked when I pulled the fuse.

no problem from my 99.. hes got the SAME year as me..

my solution = free.. great on a low budget.. if you take out the fuse you cant use your light.. if you do it my way you can turn it on or off by the factory switch only..

you could always just unplug the black pins then put them back in.. i took mine out permanently

I don't know why jeep didn't do this to begin with especially with a vehicle that has removable doors. I just don't understand must of slipped their minds. huh

Hey was it you that I was talking to a while back about some 33" tires I bought from PEPBOYS that were only $99.00. If it was did you ever call them and price them. I'm going to be needing new tires soon myself and would hope that there still in that dollar range. that was almost 2years ago when I purchased those just wondering what current prices are.

I am going to take out my old dome light and take some measurements and go down to a pick-a-part and find a dome light with a on/off switch, why jeep didn't already make it like this is stupid in my opinion.

snwchris Nope haven't done, but would say is easier to buy the $8 clips for the light pins.
Or you could make a flat plate to go over light pins and using existing panel screws already near there.
