I am new to the Jeep world, but why are you monitoring your A/F? Is there custom tuning available for the Jeep?

Sorry for the hijack.

Yeah, but I'm a couple short of a full panel. Just looking for a couple replacements is all.

I guess they ought to be in the dealer's parts fiche, if nobody know the numbers.

10 switches total. The 5-gang switch panel is flanked by the two rockers. The rocker to the left is a "master" switch that powers up the other 6 switches to the right of it.

I removed the factory portion of the console and fabricated a switch panel out of 1/4" smoked Plexiglass. Operates: Fog lights, under carriage lights, rear (2x) back up lights in Rampage bumper. the remaining three are intended for selectable lockers & OBA. The switch near the steering column is a winch switch, and the little switch below the column cancels the door activated dome light & dinging sound...I retained/re-installed the ACC & ciggy butt lighter very near the factory location. The CB bracket can be seen below the switch bank.

The 5 toggle switches have red LED when in the "off" position. When activated the light is "green". Total cost less than $75.00.

Great thread idea - I thought I would go out and shoot a cell pic for you all - because I gave it lots of thought when I came up with mine. My factory switches were all filled up, so I needed to do something else. I originally wanted to do a SPOD, but the prices was just too steep for me. I bought the blank double gauge pod ($39) and carefully used a dremel with cutoff wheels to cut out my switches. The extra space on the right I originally wanted to use for a gauge for my OBA - but since I dont have a tank hooked up to it or anything, I decided not to. Im not sure what to do with the right side of the pod yet... Another thing you might notice is the non original radio. That one is out of a Grand Cherokee - I wanted the cassette player so I would have an easy way to "aux in" the satellite (staying with a stock radio makes it less theft-friendly). It plugged right into the factory wiring and works great.

The switches currently in use are:
2 blue switches, front and rear lockers.
middle green switch, unused.
right green switch, OBA compressor.
Bottom left small square red momentary switch - switches rooftop amber light bar strobe pattern.
Bottom Left amber switch, rooftop intercepter amber light bar
first (most left) red switch, hood mounted halogen 6 light bar
middle red switch - currently unused, but for roof bar mounted halogens (coming soon)
right side red switch - currently unused, but for rear mounted halogens (coming soon)

I am here to tell you if you need an aux switch call James at OTRATTW. Just go to the website and look at the panel on the main page. That is the one i got. I got a 'factory second'. It took me and another guy 10 min to find a ''flaw''. James is knowledgeable and knows what customer service is. He ships on time at cost. I needed an on/on switch 2 weeks after installing the panel. he had one drop shipped to me in two days and shipped me the rocker at NO COST. Hands down thd best out there.
