Kill switch won't matter. The boot turns the daystar switches to the OFF position, not ON. So if the kill switch is not engaged, and you want your lights on..... the boot will keep turning them off.
(Unless I'm misunderstanding)
No, I read your comment as 3rd gear turned them on... not off. Meaning that for the highway stuff (which is where this'll be used 90% of the time), it shouldn't be an issue (as I'd normally be in 4th/5th). A kill switch should always be off...
However I'll have to think about this. Why can't someone make a top panel like 12voltguy.com that doesn't cost $400? Something like the daystar but for the upper dash? In fact I could care less where it goes... I don't need all that extra ****, I just want a nice clean panel somewhere to mount some rocker switches...
GE2, not detract from your very clean setup, but it's not exactly what I'm looking for... I like the stuff out there... just not the price tag that goes with it...
Why not just put the Daystar panel above the mirror like I did (and the guy whose pic I borrowed til I find my camera).
Great idea. Thatís exactly what I did on my TJís, only I made my own box from radio shack. The JKís didnít exist yet, hence no daystar switch panels. I like them up there way better than hacking into the dash. Itís a little more work but the benefits are worth it to me.
I picked up a trailer break light holder for $5.00 yesterday... Its a fairly heavy plastic that should let me mount a bunch of smaller switches... I'm almost tempted to try and make my own dash top switch panel (like what 12voltguy did). Then if I mess it up, I can just buy the daystar dashtop
Or I can put the daystar panel up top... oh the options!
I got the idea from a guy on the other forum. Thought I'd post here to help someone out.
I took the console panel apart and removed the hazard light/ESP switch panel out (I have an X so plenty of spare switch openings).
This is a great place for switches but these switches are tight fitting in here. I even had to cut the end of the tabs because it was too deep and hitting the circuit board. I found this switch at Autozone.
