Custom Switch panel (98 TJ)

Hey guys I have had my Jeep for about two months now and have absolutely fallen in love with it. I do have a few things I would like to change, mainly pertaining to the internal switches. Has anyone constructed a custom switch panel or dash that you could post pics of. I would be replacing the headlights pull knob and would be adding switches for internal and external lights. Thanks guys.


New and here to learn.

12 Volt guy makes some nice panels, but I prefer 12V Unlimited http://www.12voltunlimited.com/

Matt at 12V Unlimited really does a nice job and the panels are LED backlighted. You can choose backlight colors, indicator LED colors, etc. It's all fully custom and fairly quick, I think mine took about 2 weeks. Each circuit has it's own circuit breaker instead of fuses.

All wiring is very nicely done and clearly labeled. All you have to do is bring in a single 12V supply to the bus bar, one wire tapped to the headlight circuit for backlighting and a +12V line to each switched item.

If I recall, it was a little less than $300, including the wiring harness for the remote winch and shipping. So it's not cheap, but if you add up the costs of the switches, circuit breakers and custom panel layout it is not really that expensive and a whole lot nice than a generic SPOD.

This is mine, in the aluminum center console I built. The white round things below the switches are the resettable circuit breakers. The switch labels are white during daylight, but light up with a green LED backlighting at night.

Can always do the dual switch panel if you can live without the ashtray

I have been meaning to do this myself, have the parts but haven't quite pulled the trigger yet
