    Relay/switch setup. Mine is a simple SPST rocker and a standard 12V relay but you can get fancy and use a three-way switch and relay for ON-OFF-ON W/ STOCK LAMPS or simply tap into the reverse lamp wiring to control your relay. You should be fine running the LED lamps without a relay but I'm of the mindset that the relay provides an added safety factor. As always: check whatever wiring you use to ensure it is rated for the amperage you plan on drawing.

    Any issues with the led lightbulb causing the jeep to act like the lightbulb is out? I tried to replace my reverse lightbulbs with leds and it gives me the rapid blinkers signal.

    Which bulbs were you using that gave you the issues?

    I was doing a bunch of reading on them yesterday. Wow there are a bunch of different levels it seems. The nicest I saw(I think lol) were diode Dynamics. They were an actual 510 lumens per bulb and $90 a pair. And some as cheap as $29 a pair.

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.
