I like that location, but on the '12 the speaker grill is there.

Calys003 Spod it's worth it. So easy to add anything. I don't have much yet but it gives me a reason to add lights & stuff

2010WranglerMountain There's three switches there now, added one when I added the Viair system.

sPOD on 12 JKUR

I waited back in Nov 2011 for two months for the panel. Got fed up and bought sPOD. $$ But now I'm glad I did. Very clean and all of my fuses and wiring are clean.

Anyone have any suggestions?
same on my 11. You can get it out but you have to pry. First time I pried it out and scratched things a little. So much easier taking center console panel off.

NFRs2000NYC I have mine on the left of the steering wheel, similar to jkjeeper06. Perfect location, right near the headlight switch, so all the lighting is in the same area.

gr8fulKID I have mine sticking out of the area right underneath the steering wheel column. Only downside is I cant see the little green light if it is one, but other than that its an easy spot to throw it.

Jsjk Day star switch panel no argument low profile easy access, I love mine, has room for 4 switch, I bout boat switch which can double up.
02-04-2012 01:54 PM
ThePalmBeachYeti Yeah, the A-pillar one looks like something of interest.
02-01-2012 11:49 AM
Nadurra Plastic under steering wheel.

Dusthol I saw an a-pillar switch panel. Mounts on a-pillar at dash level. Think quadratec sells it.
02-01-2012 05:58 AM
denisbaldwin That's so much more refined than the light panel I have. Then again, mine was only $15 and I wanted it to look simple.

MrSig The auto dose not have that problem but I love the way the Daystar panel looks. changing the boot like jmb6420 will fix it. That is what a lot of guys in my club have done.
01-31-2012 07:38 PM
ThePalmBeachYeti Thank You
01-31-2012 07:29 PM
jmb6420 Installed one on my 08. The shift boot does contact it (switches 2&3 mainly). I solved the problem by changing my shifter boot. Got if from Redline
01-31-2012 05:41 PM
ThePalmBeachYeti yep
01-31-2012 05:33 PM
desertgoose I mounted mine here:

Wherever you decide to go just make sure there is room behind the panel you drill through.

Yeah I know, it needs a bath.

Where to put my KC switch for my new lights? Daystar switch panel?

I purchased a set of KC lights for my windshield, great quality light can't wait to have them up and running. But my actual concern is where to mount the switch with out doing a hack job, so I looked around and found this from daystar on qudratec's website.

Daystar KJ71034BK - Daystar Lower Dash Switch Panel for 11-12 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

Is anyone familiar with this product and it's fitment an matching quality also is it a direct fitment? another question is that I drive a 6 speed will it be a problem with the shifter?

If anyone has one installed please post a picture on here

thanks
