rubicon guys. need a bit of help

Okay ive been trying to find a certain item that only comes on the Rubicons. Its the little panel with the locker switches. I've looked and looked but just cant seem to find it. Can someone help me out with a place to buy one other than the stealership. Also are the buttons for the lockers momentary or not? Thanks

You mean this?

Keep in mind that you can't simply install it and call it good. It will require programming. Unless, of course, you want to wire it up the buttons directly to the lockers.

Yes thank you! How does it electronically disconnect the sway bar?

Yes, the button for the lockers is momentary push only.

As HT said and jager00 said, you either have to plug it into the canbus system and program it, or you will have to have some flipflop relays and logic as the buttons are momentary contact only as I recall...

I have a schematic that will work... It uses 4 relays wired to act as a latching circuit... If I can find a PDF upload section I'll upload it... If not, I'll convert to a JPG and post that up as well...

Why do you want all this? This panel is all computer driven and horrible to try and relay anything or put your own switches there. IMO you'd be much better just putting in your own rocker switches.

You might be better off using the switch set from an 11 - they relocated both locker and sway to a panel under the speaker on the far left of the dash... I find it more of an issue getting to it - but only because I learned to wheel in an 05 so am used to reaching with my right hand. Lost track of how many times Ive turned the seat heater on to climb a rock...

Just remember that the Rubi "momentary" switchs are only signals to the RUBI programmed ECU and each sw. is associated with a multitude of OTHER REQUIRED sensors to operate the lockers/swaybar/4hi/4lo-etc

I think you're wasting time/money and also jeopardizing your systems integrity/lifespan-possible warranty-

Good luck

Yes, but he can also set up his own system that will work just as well, without having to go through the ECU and isn't dependent upon all those sensors... As I said, a momentary switch to activate a latched relay circuit, which energizes whatever motor/solenoid he wants...
