    Yes, another newbie here. Happy Winter!!!! I love cold weather- fat people hate to sweat.
    Has anyone replaced the factory wiring switch with under hood solenoids? I would like to have a simple up and down in the cab. Wiring schematics/ pictures welcomed. I believe I can use 2- dual solenoids. Correct?
    Thanks!!!

    I did it using a 3 way toggle on the dash (92 Cherokee) and 4 70 amp relays under the hood. Total expense for the parts was less than 50.00. It's plug compatible with supplied big window-hanging switch.

    Search this site for "Snowbear big ugly" for some details and links to a couple of pictures, or feel free to email me at bdhunter@cavtel.net and I'll pass info along to you.
