Jeep_guy3 I am a huge fan of these, sold by Rugged Ridge. Not the cheapest, but reasonable, and also one of the cleanest that I've seen. I currently have my OBA and winch controls on this one, when I get lockers I'll put in another next to it.

MetalMountainGoat My switches for my KCs are where the ash tray would be in my 03.

TJDave I have a few extra switches in my 04 TJ. I mounted them all without having to buy anything extra. Mine is a non-ashtray model. It has a flat spot where an ashtray would normally be. That is where I put my ARB switches. Where hardtop defrost, wiper, and OD switches are, I have a blank. I drilled a hole in the blank and put a rocker switch there. If yours is a Rubi, those are probably all being used. The flat panels on each side of the steering wheel also make a good spot for a switch. I put my winch switch on the left side so I can reach it from outside the Jeep.

JRoweMDN I understand that. That spot would be pretty easy to get to and out of the way. You also could look at the vent switches. They are pretty nice looking.

I love the spod, but upgrading these street tires someone had on a wrangler tj rubicon when I bought it is a first before a $450 switch option. Right in front of the transfer case handle where the plastic is bare and sloping up is actually growing on me for the switch location

I was thinking behind the 4wd handle where the plastic is slanted there is enough room for two switches. Or a daystar vent with two switches

techflork ugh I don't have my jeep down here but I put the switches in the stock dash spots. check out OTRATTW, just google it. They make awesome awesome switches. It's worth the price man, just do it. I have all labeled switches that light up when one, one shows a pic for my bumper lights, and one has a pic for my windshield lights. Then I have one for the winch! goods stuff man, give them a call and double check your order though cause that site is crazy confusing.

Common places to wire a light switch

Considering places I would like to wire in my first auxiliary lighting switch. Would love to see some pictures of where you all have placed yours on your tjs!
