Lights are awesome...not a fan of the switch placement. Why there?

Out of sight. Small part to replace if I don't want them anymore. Didn't want to drill into the dash. Gives me plenty of room for more switches/lights.

It was a very hard decision to make.

I see. I would have put them into the blanks on the lower center stack. But that's me.

I looked there but the switches were just a hair to big. Also, when the lights are on, the switches light up red, and that might actually get annoying. Down near the emergency brake won't cast any glare on the windshield.

Yeah. I wish I could have special ordered mine, But Jeep didn't give us that option as they re-tooled the factory for the 2013 1/2 (2014) models.

I'll take some nighttime pics posted soon.

BTW - the bottom pair are very bright. They swivel and are currently pointed away.

New additions: Jeep Cargo and Slush Mats

Also, over the weekend, I started thinking out recovery if I get a flat. My answer: I bought a Bushranger XJack (http://www.bushranger.com.au/xjack.php). ARB has them for $230. Should have it by the end of this week. Looking forward to testing it. Will take pics.

How much did you pay for the mats? I am shopping mine now. My parts department gave me a 15% off coupon on my first purchase.
