New jeep; switch and radio mounts
I am the proud owner of my buddie's old 2002 TJ, and I am getting rid of my 1974 CJ5.
It's a great jeep, quite an upgrade for sure. Something I am not used to though is a modern dash in my wheeling rig. We run VHF radios in our group. I can't find any clean spot to mount the radio where it is safe from mud/weather and out of the way.
Anyone can just bolt it to the top of the dash, I don't like that.
The other thing I don't like about the dash is there is no spot to easily add switches. My CJ5 had a custom dash insert that had 20 spots for carlin switches, so it was all set up for anything in the future. I have no idea where to install switches and gauges.
I need at least 5-6 switches. OBA compressor, Front ARB, Rear ARB, Front aux lighting #1, Front aux lighting #2, rear Aux light.
An OBA pressure gauge is pretty nice too.
I had such an awesome gauge/switch/radio setup in the CJ and I don't see how I am going to make it all work
I have looked into S-Pods and the Tuffy overhead consoles (maybe get the double, mount the VHF in one and a switch panel in the other. Doesnt help with the PSI gauge though).
Yes I have searched, but most people are just mounting 3 switches or a single cb radio, ect.
