switch panels for a manual tranny
Im gonna do some exterior lighting and want to get a switch panel but its seems like with a manual tranny all I can get is the pillar switch panel. I saw that daystar only makes panels for auto trannys unless I wasnt looking good enough. I dont really wanna do pillar switches but will if I have to. Any suggestions?

You can check out the sPOD unit.Not cheap but very nice.

It is pricey, but it is absolute quality. It is frankly better in quality than OEM.

The Spod is overkill unless you're running on board air.

The Rugged Ridge and Daystar both make an A-pillar switch pod that isn't that bad. I will admit, the factory finish on them is pretty darn accurate to the OEM panels.
I didn't like the fit of my "Rugged Ridge" A pillar switch pod, but that is just me. I'm very picky and I just felt it is sloppy and not a perfect fit to my '10. Maybe it was really designed for newer JK's...don't know...

Good Luck!

I'm in the same boat as the OP and looked at the sPOD, but it appears to be limited to 6 circuits, where I need 8 for my plans.

I'm planning on putting together my own relay/fuse panels to power the devices and should be able to stay under the price of the sPOD. I just can't figure out what to do with the other 4 switches unless I can mount them where the power window switches would have been.
