I took a trip in the ZJ about 800 mi round trip my alternator would quit charging at various points in the trip a few light taps and it would remedy the situation

I also redid the headliner cleaned the Jeep inside and out I was also able to crawl underneath it and noticed I have a small exhaust leak and my betaken has no tension when engaged

So I have some pieces from my truck and decided to take my light controller and mount it into my Jeep I have only done the first part at this point which is the actual control head I will probably mount the box near the amplifier. Unfortunately when I got rid of my truck I went cut happy instead of taking my time so I need to get some wire and an rj45 cable then I can wire in the box and when I get the lights I want I can wire those into the box and have a clean switch panel.
