Toggle Switch

Anyone know where I can find stock toggle switches that will fit in the factory center console holes above the lighter.

Hardtop model.

You may want to try the dealership, I think that they sell blank switches for that spot.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

Way cool. Where did the bezel come from. The lighter plug is like my 98 TJ but I don't think it would hold the switches.

Yes it is. The box is behind the dash, just to the left of the glove box.

Bezel came from a totalled TJ at a salvage yard. I got it for $5.00. Then I put it all together (writeup over on JF)...

Eric,

I already have the 2nd bezel to do exactly what you have already done. What did you use for supporting the CB cable? It looks very clean. I already grinded and filed down mine to fit.

Find a good boating store, I was at boaters supply a couple of weeks ago at the franklin mills outlets, they have a big selection of switches just like those.

My switches are from www.otrattw.com (Geeps here on WF). Good prices and good selection.

My CB cable is supported in back by a simple piece of PVC connector that I had lying around from a home improvement project a few years ago. I dremeled a little notch on the end that sits behind the bezel and against the dash itself to feed the cable line through.

I ordered my switches today. I will post Pics when I have them installed. It should look very similar to Erics.

Do those just snap into the stock bezel? I got a OEM switch for an aftermarket Fog light but cant find a harness (other than the $104 whole OEM harness) to fit. What kind of connectors to those switches have?

Yes, they fit into the stock bezel nicely, regardless of year (newer bezels don't look quite the same, but they fit in just fine).

The back of the switch has simple blade connectors. You can see my 3 switches here.



I did custom wiring for most of the switches and made my own wiring harness. My writeup covers how to do that.
