    Another happy customer here. The warm white lights look great under my Softopper. I had a slight hickup during install when the remote wouldn't work as I hooked the lights up to power. They just kept flashing. I pulled the fuse for a few seconds to cut the power and once I replaced the fuse the remote worked perfectly. I had searched on here to see if anyone else may have had that happen before I pulled the fuse and couldn't find anything... so hopefully this helps if someone encounters that minor glitch in the future. Thanks for a great kit Matt!

    On another note... what are y'all doing with your remotes? I put a small piece of velcro on mine and stuck it to the underside of the console lid so I don't lose it.

    Thanks everyone for sharing install pics!


    The remote, upon first start up always flashes. What makes it confusing is the switch has a separate power source, turn the remote off and check the switch as it may also be in the on position.

    constant power from the battery, tapped into the dome light ground in the driver's side fuse area.

    Yes they do

    No switch, I just searched and wired like other people had posted on here that wanted something to light with the dome light.

    So did you run both power wires together and then your ground?

    I was wondering if you had any further wiring instructions to do this mod or point me in the direction of some threads you used? I am wanting to do the same sort of thing. Thanks

    No, the interior lights use the ground wire as a trigger and not the power wire.
