    It looks pretty slick, offers more switch locations and is undoubtedly cheaper.
    That was the ďotherĒ I was referring too... forgot the dam name of it... looks like I even already subscribed that thread... itís hard to keep up with all the cool shit out there. Thanks for the link.

    The Build of ORION

    Got the Twin wired & plumbed. Kept it real simple... chopped the ARB switch harness off and connected the red & purple wires to a toggle switch next to the compressor. Couple brackets for mounting... & done. Works great.

    The Build & Travels of ORION

    Havenít seen anyone else do this, so though I would share my phone mount... Itís an $8 SCOSCHE magnet mount, stuck to the air vent. If you turn the vent at about 35 degrees it holds the phone nice and tight and wont flip down. Perfect viewing angle and quick to reach... If you donít want to see it, simply flip the vent around.

    I hope it works out. It sure looks good. But we burned out 2 ipods with magnetic mounts. First one we thought was just coincidence. It had lasted years before this. Bought a new iPod. Lasted 3 days and failed in the same way as the first one. Just an FYI.

    Thatís really strange... My wife & I have been using the magnet setup in our rides for about 6 years... zero issues.

    Magnet mounts should work well with most phones and some iPods. Some portable media players and iPods actually use small spinning hard drives which are effected my the magnets, ultimately leading to a hard drive failure. However, phones and most new portable electronics use Flash/solid state memory that is unaffected by magnets.

    That's likely what it was then. Both made a clicking sound when they failed. Likely the hard drives.

    Makes sense. I will say I have the rugged ridge dash mount and a mag mount that I custom diy'd in to the grab bar. While I love the rugged ridge dash organizer for it's functionality, the mag mount is super convenient and easy.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
