Take out the ashtray and make a special holder for them. It'll look awesome.

That looks pretty damn nice. Good deal on that.
It seems like it's a ways down there, but it's really not that bad. I've considering moving my driving lights to a spot down there, but then I'd have 1in sloted hole in my knee bolster.

Well....I thought about it, then remembered I'd have to have a gray interior to make that even come close to working.

Thanks... pretty excited to get it all done. Hopefully the powder coat on the light bar will look decent this time, had thin spots all over it on the first attempt so I took it back.

Hi guys, I made a switch panel to the shape of the panel that goes under steering column. Made the panel out of Fibre Fill. The panel detaches easily and the switches still clip in as normal.

Used a piece of black acrylic I had (bathtub liner)
There is a fuse block behind the dash as well, with all power meeting at it.

I have switches mounted in two different spots.

This is for my fogs in the stock location.


This switches are for the halo's on my fogs and use to be for the bumper lights I had before I hit the deer.

I made up this little panel for my light switches. It's ok when off-road and you don't have to be messing with them. But for road use they are to far out of reach. Thinking of going old school high beam floor switch for the one set that gets used more often.
