I am currently scratching my head trying to figure out where to relocate my switch for my OBA and also need to mount a locker switch. I am thinking I might try and mount them to where I can work them with my right hand, I am not a fan of where the stock locker switch is at all. It is kind of a pain if you are switching them on and off all the time since I scoot the seat up close to the dash which means my knees are in the way, and the seatbelt is allmost allways locked in place restricting movement when I need to work the switches a lot.

Anyone have any suggestions of something they think might work? I woldnt mind them being on the left hand side if I could get them up above the steering wheel.

What about putting them on the A-pillar? Easy to wire into there, and it's pretty accessible when you're driving.

I guess I shold have said that I dont have the covers on the A-pillars since that would be a good place to mount them. I never put covers back on after I installed my RockHard cage.

Hard to tell, would you be able to fit the sPOD in there?

I might be able to but I don't think it would be easy to reach when the seatbelt has me locked down in the seat.

I am thinking about maybe trying to mount them on the dash beside the tray up top but not sure if I can make it not look tacky

The spod might work. I'm 6", sit with the seat most of the way back, and can reach the switches without leaning forward.

The switches on the spod are few inches immediately below the center latch for removing the freedom panels, if you want to get a feel for the reach.
