    Here's a pic of the relay panel wired up (except battery + and ground) note wire colors do not correspond with above pics.
    I used female quick disconnects on the 5 outputs in case I ever change up accessories.

    Please do not EVER use anything but Fully insulated connectors on any switches or relays if you are hard wiring relays. If ever the connector comes off the switch or relay, or in a rollover, the non insulated connectors can easily come in contact with each other, and start a fire. Regular insulated is below on left, Fully Insulated on right.

    Mount switch bodies into daystar and rtv silicone it to the windshield trim panel, use clamps, let it dry for at least an hour.

    I think I am too impatient for rtv, going to use four small countersunk bolts and nuts to join the two plastic pieces. Maybe daystar will make a new trim panel piece for upper windshield someday :-)

    Install note- leave some excess wire behind the glove box so you can still fold down the windshield.

    Otrattw covers and daystar switch mount note- it seems like the switches are too close together, so I will be filing down the covers in between the 5 switches. File out the holes in the daystar panel, to make sure there is about a 1/16" gap between switch bodies and covers should fit ok.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
