Need Some Help

Hey guys and girls I am a volunteer fireman and I am adding lights to my new 2013 jeep wrangler. Is it possible to make the dead switches in the console active or should I just get a daystar lower dash switch panel? Any help would be great. Thanks

Short answer- you can't get them to work. If you have an automatic, the daystar panel will work, if you have a 6speed, might be too tight, and you'd probably be better off with the rugged ridge a pillar set up.

If you wanted to spend the money, the spod is a great set up too (it's what I run)

Also consider what works when you need it. Installing a hard to reach switch that is easy to install will be a pita when you need to use it.

There is also room above the driver's side speaker grill - look at where the Rubicon has the stock buttons installed. Assuming you don't have a Rubicon, you can install switches there too.
