Plenty of room behind the plastic piece to hold the switches. Per my signature, I have a 2012 JKR . Yes, stock plastic A pillar cover. And I used a step-bit to drill the hole. Obviously, remove the plastic piece from the A pillar first. You need to do that anyway to mount the switches.

I'm considering the same switches. at 1.5 inches deep , I was concerned there may not be enough room/depth behind the pillar cover. Three questions for you .... what year is your JK? 2) is that the stock pillar cover? 3) how did you create the holes?

I got the switches through Amazon. The search information is:
Green: Plasmaglow 11012
Red: Plasmaglow 11011
Blue: Plasmaglow 11010
These particular switches are push on/push off. The Plasmaglow website says they also have momentary switches, but I couldn't find any retailer that sold them.
These are a tad pricey. I remember reading in other postings AFTER I bought mine that there are other switches similar to the Plasmaglow, but cheaper.
The relays were just the average type. I got the "sealed" kind, again through Amazon. The search info is:
12 VDC Waterproof Relay SPDT 30/40A with Metal Bracket
When I said that I had installed the fused relays, I meant that in addition to the relays, I placed fuses inline for protection. You can do an Amazon search for "blade fuse holder" and find several options.

can you tell me where you got those switches and relays? and did you choose momentary or on/off

The other problem/issue was with the size of the hole I made on each side of the spacer panel. As it turned out, I only needed a narrow slot, about 1/2" wide.

|bummin03||The biggest thing I ran into with that light bar was running the wires through it. I did not want them out so I took them through the center of the light bar. I am pretty sure I have the exact same one, it did not come with a space to run the wires. It was my first experience with running lights.|

Will be installing the Mopar light bar tomorrow night, any tips of the install or is it pretty straight forward?
I have three rampage products 4.74" driving lights that I'm mounting on the bar.

AUX Light Switch / Relay Install
I'm slowly working on an AUX light install. I get about 2 hours in the morning before the garage gets too hot. So far I've got the Mopar light bar, Plasmaglow switches and fused relays installed.
The switches from top to bottom will be: Front Driving lights, wide angle lights and backup lights.
Now I need to decide on what lights to get for the front. I'm bouncing back and forth from a Rigid Industries E-Series 20" LED Combo Light Bar or Rigid Dually D2 LED Lights - White Driving Beam Single and Dually D2 LED Wide Light . Fortunately, I won't be needing the lights until the fall, so I have some time to decide.
My plans are to do a flush install using Sealed, 6-1/2" Oval LED Trailer Back Up Light, Flush Mount, 36 Diode - Clear Optronics Trailer Lights BUL52CB in the rear bumper.
