You could have saved alot of time and wire/connectors by running the switch to the shared ground of the ign switch inside the cab, but that works too, :bigthumb:

It's not really a kill switch, it's a no-start switch. Using that method you have to make sure your switch is rated for the same amperage as the fuse, which is 40A. You also need to make sure the power goes through the fuse before it goes to your switch. That way the wire going into the passenger compartment is protected.

exactly, thats why I mentioned switching the ground, thats how I usually wire everything especially if Im messing with the OEM wiring, just take the ground away and you dont have to tamper with the B+ circuit at all  :bigthumb:

Building a capable off road Jeep is easy...building a street legal one that you can drive two hours away to wheel and then drive to work the following morning is the challenge.

Honest question...

Noticed you have a gray key.  Doesn't gray key=sentry key=factory anti-theft device?

I think that was meant for Beth buddy, :lol: her daughter is named Regan ?

you did do a good job buddy ,,,,,,,,,, just trying to expose an easier way to do it, and that is actually a kill switch, your switch is a theft deterrent type switch it wont actually kill the engine after running, but the ground wire to the ign switch will actually prevent starting and stop a running engine too, and the wires are all inside the cab, no need for fuses or running long wires or disturbing much of the OEM stuff.....

well, not much of a write up, just cut the black wire going to your ignition switch and put a switch on that black wire going to your ignition switch, then flip it on and off as needed, :lol:
