    Power switch control

    I posted earlier asking about opinions on the sPOD (resoundingly negative) Bantam. The negative feedback got me thinking.

    What do you guys think of an Open Source kit type thing, a handy person could solder together over a weekend (or less) and install in their own Jeep. The final cost would be a lot less than any of the other offerings I've seen and include basically all the features you'd expect (Per channel fusing, color LCD, easy mapping, etc). I've sort of proto-typed one out in my head so far that could be turned into a project like this. But thought I'd ask you all if you think this is a good, or bad idea? I suppose if there was demand for them assembled or partially assembled kits could also be sold, but the whole project would be available essentially for free (minus the parts to build it yourself of course).

    I'm going to build one for me either way, but if anyone thinks this would be a fun project to make available to the community I'll make sure to do more to keep it simple, tidy and neat knowing there's interest in the project. I'd also be happy to document it in a forum post if there is any interest. My inspiration for wanting to give it to the community was basically inspired by Eddie and CIndy and their amazing videos over on YouTube.

    Let me know what you guys think, or if this is even the proper forums for this... Thanks for reading

    Over the years, members have posted some DIY switch boxes they've built. Some look simple and some look like a rat's nest.

    I think you’ll find that the components are not as cheap as you’d expect, unless you have a line on good discounts. But by all means, go for it and report back.

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.
