eg6hatch actually you cant on a 07 and up jeep. Chrysler stopped using a actual voltage wire to turn the radio on and use a data signal...

TDCoffee I actually found a switched line inside the cover on top of the stereo (center) stack. I think the lead that is there is for Nav? Anyway, my amp needed powere plus a switched lead, and I used one of the wire I found there with no problems. I've had the set up for a year and it works great.

It is.
Mount an auxiliary fuse panel under your glove box and use the left outlet to trip a relay for it; then pull your main power from the battery.

Nice fuse panel
40 amp relay

Hilldweller Where? What are you doing?
I used the switched power outlet in the cabin for one and a parking light for another.

switched ignition source

Does anyone know the best place to find a switched ignition lead to tap into on an 07?
