    I've been working graveyards for over 27 years. I'm used to it, but I still hate it. The people and the 20% pay differential just barely win out over the crappy adverse effects on my body and mind. I thank Odin and the Gods for the fine Irish whiskey that helps keep my sleep patterns somewhat consistent. That and my huge cache of vitamins and supplements.

    A straight graveyard wouldn't bother me one bit.

    This swinging tho... ugh. Turning in my paperwork today for the change. I want to call off on Friday and Saturday already. It's just Monday.

    I don't blame you. I did a swing shift for a bit many years ago but it was 7 days of "day" shift, a couple days off then 7 days of 2nd shift a couple days off and 7 days of third shift and back to the beginning. The sequence you posted seems more like torture to me...

    I'd take that over this mess.

    There's an alternative that they run at 2 other plants. Instead of swinging days, they swing weeks, the shifts are STRAIGHT, either day shift or afternoon shift. Still 10 hours. Life would be so much easier.

    Question for you all - I trust you far more than most of what I am reading on other Jeep forums, especially Grand Cherokee. Seems like a lot of bad info at worst, lack of real knowledge at best.

    Looking to add OE fog lights to my very base 2008 WK Laredo. 2008 has all the factory wiring in place, which I would like to leverage.

    My question is - how does the BCM command the lights to be on, specifically in the relay in the Power Distribution Center? I thought it was by providing a ground to the appropriate pin on the mini-relay but I am looking to confirm that.

    Reason I ask is if I cannot get my hands on a StarScan to enable fog lights (which also requires me purchasing the appropriate multi-function switch), I will just wire in a manual standalone switch to turn them on and off. My thought is I could (hopefully) disconnect the BCM trigger wire (I'd be concerned with my connection somehow messing up the BCM) and run that leg of the mini-relay over to a new manual switch to ground it.

    Seems like a more simple and clean solution than trying to run a standalone wiring harness.

    Is that feasible?

    I wish I could help Kevin, but I can't. I never added fogs to my WK. But I'd have just taken it in and had the option enabled in the TIPM. I won't ever touch Chrysler electronics again. Anything I wire to the KL will be coming straight from the battery...*IF* I do that.

    I STILL haven't turned in that paperwork. Swear I don't wanna leave these people. We all work so well with each other even if we are all half awake/asleep.

    Do you have to have a credit check before the test drive?

    So "someone" at work wants to be arrogant.

    Guess I'll just be petty...
