Arb rocker switch mounting applications
 
1 Attachment(s)
C'mon guys, someone out there has some input as to how in the hell I am going to mount my ARB Rocker Switches... I am really in a quandary here fellas.. I have a cobra CB mounted in between the wheel and dash and all of my stock rockers are taken up by the Fog Lights, Rear Defrost, and Wiper.. Can I get a Blank which will replace my ashtray?? I need some creativity here fellas!! I spoke with 4Wheel parts and they said my only options were the Console (but glare on the windshield can pose a problem), or a $40 Pod which mounts in the "void" atop of the dash.. I am really hitting a lot of dead-ends here.....:banghead: The pictured set-up is the exactly how i want, but I cannot find an ash tray bezel blank to say my rear-end..

Thanks guys!

Have you seen the new Daystar switch panel? It takes the place on one of your center heating ducts. I will post a link when I find it.

Here you go....


(but not the only place)

Maybe put the CB inside the center console. For the mic cord you could run it out of the bottom. Get an extended mic cord so it has the reach. Just an idea.

you could also check out stuff from 12voltguy. they've got some different switches and mounts that might be what you're looking for. as for my ARB's, my switches are pretty much in the same place as nicolas

here is another option this is what I have

Timberman 01-08-2009 10:10 AM

Yeah, I have seen all of those products, but none tickle my fancy.. I really like the 6 switch panel however; that thing is super expensive.. I really want to keep everything as stock looking as possible, so I would really like to see how guys have mounted them in stock locations.

Thanks for all the input guys!

Here is my Daystar JK vent switch panel and upper panel.
They both work great. Like my locker switches up there.
The swith panel was $20.00 and the Upper dash panel was $25.00..

Sorry to hi-jack but quick question, is that J8 in your sig your vehicle thedon? I thought they wernt going to be available in the US...only to the egyptian military. Those rigs are so sweet though.

Anyway, I have my arb switches mounted in the same spot pictured in your first post but I did not put them there, the previous owner did. Sorry I couldnt help.

Yes the J8 is not available in the US. The photo is from Moab last year when Jeep had it there.

Is a sweet jeep.

GRN TJ,

That is exactly the way I want to mount them... I have an ash tray there and this weekend I am going to try to find a wrecking yard to see if I cannot pillage an ash tray blank.

Who makes that? Will a later model dash pod snap in to my 02? I hate the ash tray location in mine.

Yeah, it's one of mine.

The later year OEM switch panels won't fit properly into the earlier year TJ's without changing out the center bezel.

4point 01-09-2009 03:48 PM

By bezel you mean the main center housing?

otrattw 01-09-2009 04:32 PM

That would be the one.

4point 01-09-2009 04:34 PM

Hmmm.......... I may have to go to the pick-a-part and find one. The switch options are much better with that layout.

otrattw 01-09-2009 05:31 PM

The 2003 to 2006 OEM switch bezel is a nice setup.

OffRDer 01-13-2009 05:21 PM

OTRATTW, the switch panel is not up on your site right now is it? because I cant find it anywhere!! is it temporaryly down?

otrattw 01-13-2009 06:04 PM

The switch panels aren't on the website right now. When I rebuilt the website recently I didn't include a web page for the switch panels.

I am backordered on them right now. Business and a few other things put me behind.
