“Hello” from a new member. Our 3 y/o fell in love with a PW Jeep Rubicon at Costco, so we ended up taking it home. Seemed like a good deal for $120 but I had no idea we were getting the lowest model of the PW family.

Put it together and thought it looked like a Willy, so the first mods were some WWII Invasion decals. My dad was assigned to the 101st around 1967, so a couple Screaming Eagles went on as well.

The next mods were a safety flag, mountain bike tire tread, and 6V to 12V conversion. It’s still a one-wheel-peel, so I have a motor and gearbox to install on the left rear. LED lights are to follow as well.

Any suggestions on a (very) simple remote kill switch would be greatly appreciated.
