Headlight ribbon and DRLs

Hey CLSTECH

2 questions;
Why did the original thread get blocked?
And, is there a way to have the DRLs on all the time, even at night?

Great mod thanks.

Re: Headlight ribbon and DRLs

The DRL mod affects the operation of the headlight ribbons only. I believe some export models do not have the bumper LED strip illuminated at night. This kit will not change that operations.

The mod will make the headlight ribbons illuminate full intensity during the day with headlamps off and return to normal dim state while headlights are on at night.

I'm not a paying vendor on this site, so a "for sale" post is not fair to supporting vendors to have posted.

Such Horse shit.

How much profit were you making on each sale after materials AND time? My guess very little! You were basically doing it so we would have the mod-ability, that's it.

If the vendors crying would like to give up their profits and let us have things at cost as well, then they should be able to post stuff up without having to pay vendor fees...otherwise, pay the vendor fees and reap your profits My guess is that some vendor (not pointing finger at anyone her particularly, it could even be one yet to sign up) is going to rip off the idea and start selling it now for a profit.

You guys can discuss the harnesses all you want..i just cant allow blatant for sale threads anymore. I hope everyone understands. Clstech wasnt the only one....there were others too. While it sucks for the community somewhat...it kinda makes sense as we have vendors spending lots of cash to sell their products here.

Me personally would not let that happen

Re: Headlight ribbon and DRLs

Scott,
I understand where you are coming from and that the $$ helps. My issue is more on the side of the complaining, which I feel this is not the first time I have heard of it happening lately. I understand business, blah blah blah, but if a company is afraid of one specific product being sold ad hoc out of someone's house, they have bigger issues. IMO they're just trying to find a way to shake you down on the fees.

If you are the owner then we have to respect that.

However, I would like to say that CLStech was not selling the kits as his primary source of income nor as a vendor, and in addition other similar sites allow for such "hobbyists" to sell mods to members. After all, his kits benefit the Jeep community. Thats my 2 cents.

I realize that....and clstech.sold them here for like a year or more. But..
I have to respect the paying vendors and Connell knows that as well. There are ways around it if you guys wanna buy these....clstech is well know for this mod...just PM him. Someone other than him can also setup a group buy if wanted one time per year. Run it for 14 days and be done. I also offered Connell a very cheap price to become a vendor....but the market for these is limited in my understanding early and midlate 14s.

And I thank you for the offer Scott. I'm not seeing or needing the Kit to be profitable to warrant becoming a vendor currently.

In the mean time I can help you guys out with the mod. The mod can be applied to 2014-2015 now. Feel free to reach out to me via pm for instructions if needed.
