Drill it baby. I think the dash location would look cleaner and stocker than the stock one, nor would I want it imbedded in my kneecap.

Here's where the upshift light was. It lit up as a green arrow.


Currently in pieces - all of them

I think the location by the headlight switch makes more sense??????

Depends on what is more is more visible to you. Low or high. I don't notice things much unless they are kinda in my face. For me, I would get one of the little LED lights and put in the top of the dash pad. Small and discrete. Along with turn signal and a high beam indicators. I know, sacrilege. Guess I'm just not very observant.

You can easily strap a lot of things to the top of the steering column.
I have a vacuum gauge there but a light would be even easier and no holes to drill. Easy to see.
Put a light on the windshield frame.
I can't even see the headlight switch let alone any indicator light in that area.

I'd put the switch under the dash by the cigarette tray so it's out of the way of any knees.
I have all my plow switches there right now but thinking of moving them to the center console.

you could wire in a buzzer to warn you if your auxiliary lights are on but parking lights are not on.
Or lights on engine not running
Or lights on headlights not on
Or lights on, ignition switch off

Nevermind, carry on.
I saw that too. Add in a $65.00 switch. Almost tempted me to think about removing and selling my originals. 'Cept I like them.

Lol, that includes the switch, mounting brackets etc. Basically a plug and play.

I'm with Glenn. I like round KC's on a CJ, but the Marchals have their place on a bone stock rig.

Just think of all the folks who had those on their Jeep and pulled them off and tossed them over the years.....

The Jeep engineers did not do a good job with those, they always looked like someone bolted them on as an after thought. The first brush with a bush and they would be ripped off (not in a protected position).

Mines a survivor too..........It survived two POs and then I found her and chopped her to bits.

winch power, winch I/O, locker front, locker rear, off road lights, B/U lights, dome light, undercarriage lights, air comp, battery combiner. All have a small led indicator, the winch power indicator flashes red and is brighter than the others. I can't see the cable from the seat, so i figured it better scream "power on" in the cab.

Glenn, I see you're as OCD/anal retentive as me! Good luck with that.

My vote is for the Jamboree location.

I agree I think, the original switch should be here shortly.

Got the gas tank fitted back in today and the wheel centers swapped, need to put the fill tubes back in.
