    I got them from Ronald from 4x4 Traction.

    Installation is not included, parts only.

    I see a vasectomy on the horizon for you when your lovely and trusty and caring and mild mannered SWAMBO finds out about your TJ mods. And it is going to be done in your garage.

    Because they are very clever, they ad a zero to any amount you mention and then they file it away. Until later, when it is vasectomy time.

    Hmmm well here is holding thumbs she doesn't catch me. My tjiep is in at the moment for a service and once over for carnage. Also an adjustable track bar. Looking forward to see what difference that makes.

    Let me know when you find it, but I don't think there is one, only the doors has a little pin type switch.

    Remove the bulb and check with a volt meter while one of the front doors is open.

    Don't overdo sliders, they must be functional and not too large. Lot's of nice picks on Google to plan them properly.

    If I remember correctly it's on the left stalk, think it's the dimmer switch. Will have to check to be sure.

    Its on the left stork. Rotate it 'forward' all the way. Thats the interior light.
    Remember to give it one click back to switch off.
