Not directly.

There are switch pods available that replace the ash tray though.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

Well I sourced it off the Jeep on the trailer. Sorry I do not know where to get one after market, I looked and could not find a source, I guess who ever made these is no longer selling them.

See, I don't get why so many folks are willing to make crappy stuff like the top of the console and in the vent switch panels. I'd be perfectly happy to spend 30 bucks on a panel like Wushaw has and lose the ashtray to be able to mount ARB switches in a panel MADE for the standard size switches ARB and damn near everyone else makes, as opposed to hacking up the somewhat smaller holes the stock switches use, and then having to glue in my switches, meaning if I ever have to replace 'em my day sucks...

I want a replacement switch panel like available for the 03+. Crown, Omix, ANYONE... are ya listening?

ARB switches mount in the OEM switch holes just fine...

Check out 12voltguy.com and OTRATTW.com (over the river and through the woods). They both have some cool switch panel options. I heard OTRATTW is backlogged though, you may have to wait.

I concour. I mounted my ARB switches in the stock location. Pop out the blanks and the switches pop right in. I, of course, do not have any of the factory switches that could come in there so it wasn't an issue for me. If you have factory fog, O/D or rear wiper for hard top I could see this being an issue and wanting more switch locations.
