Windshield light switch

I'm trying to install my new windshield lights and can't figure out how to remove the lower left dash to mount the switch. Where did u guys mount it/ where is the easiest place to mount it?

Similar...that side should just pop right out...might have to pry the front edge up abit. Like i said...not familar with the 11's. Might have to wait for an 11 owner to chime in!

Glad to help! People do push a coathanger through that foam filled hole to push a wire on through the fire wall if you haven't ran a hot wire yet.

All and all I'm pretty happy. The lights mounting system isn't great, they aim a lil high. But for $29.99 u can't beat them.

just an observation
in the 2011 rubicon is that not exactly where the off road controls are for like, sway bar disconnect and lockers. if that is true where would be a good place to mount light switch, in a 2011 rubicon?
