I have insurance too....but I've had my jeep gone through 8 times or so...I just find it easier to not leave stuff in it. I think even with locked full doors, at least a few of those 8 would've cut the top to get in.

...my deductible is more/close to the cost of buying a new top.

I might. I just need to reinsert one of the 12v sockets I pulled out when I was contemplating swapping them to the underside of the new panel. Somewhat buggered up the tabs that hold it in but they should still work. I may add a dab of superglue just to ensure it remains seated.

I don't mind if it is buggered as long as the price is right.

I am looking at seeing if I can mate the 4 switch side with an older TJ 3 switch panel for a stock looking 7 switches.

More to satisfy my curiosity.

From left to right-

Defrost - Rear Wiper - Front locker - Rear locker - Windshield light bar - Rock lights - Rear lights

Well it's a solid unit so you'd have to hack it in half. Not like the older 2 pc design.

I know. From looking at pictures on eBay auctions and internet write-ups, it looks close enough to be doable.

Might even be enough room to run a cross brace under the switches for structural support.

Filled up for the first time after replacing the filler neck. Didn't shoot out like before, but apparently I didn't put the hose on completely and started leaking where the hose meets the tank. Oops

Yeah its just the stock one, having two outlets is nice. I thought the coin tray was the pass airbag shutoff for certain models?
