    Just want to say that I whole heartedly endorse the Trigger products. I have the Trigger 4 Plus installed in my 2019 Wrangler and it's probably my favorite add on. It was a super easy install, made wiring my a-pillar and ditch lights a breeze, and I haven't noticed any difference in reliability between the Trigger system and a wired light control panel.

    Got Trigger wired and tested. How the heck did you attach module by battery?
    Trying to keep it tight and right is tuff. Tried big tie wraps. I can’t see any means you used to secure it.
    Any help appreciated....

    It’s not too high and hit the hood? How did you get it to stay secured?

    It just touches the liner...as you can see, the RF antennas stay up...just where it sits, it doesn't move in any direction even after 10,000 miles and many many speed bumps...

    Ah right...the yellow is to be connected to an accessory power line (+), in my case, the marker lamp. That way, the power is only armed when you have the marker turned on and will not be accidentally powered up if there's radio interference...:)

    What?! Is the terminal tightened up correctly? I can't think of anything that would keep the truck from powering upo_O
