What's behind the 2013 locker switches?

Anyone looked behind the 2013 locker switches. There is a blank on the right that is just begging to have additional switches added there.

Is this switch panel like the center switches with the board behind it?

I'm planning out my switch location for lights, etc, I really hate the big bulky preconfigured boxes. I spent 37,000 for my rubi and want my aux lights to look stock! I also am not looking forward to just randomly cut holes in the plastic to mount one switch at a time.

Iím thinking about trying to match the locker switches for AUX switches in the same panel.

I believe the switch board spans the entire plastic face panel, similar to the center dash ones. You can easily check by removing the side panel and peeking in. I've had the dash open but didn't focus heavily on them.

I took that section of switches apart about two months ago in hopes of doing what you're thinking. I decided that the wiring would have been a huge nightmare and I would've had to cut more plastic than I was willing to cut, so I abandoned the project and instead bought the Rugged Ridge A-Pillar Switch Pod which I've been happy with (it's a VERY tight fit).

In short, I don't think you'd be able to easily make it look "factory," so the better route is the switch pod.
