Light Switch Question
I'm about to order some Rigid Dually D2's on my 2013 JKU and have a question about the rocker switch options. I have one blank in my OEM panel and am debating on using it or installing one of the pillar panels and ordering a rocker for it.

I'm not having any luck using Google to find switch options for the OEM slot. It keeps showing universal or the Daystar or Rugged Ridge switches for the pillar panel.

I'm not against buying a panel, but don't anticipate an immediate need to add a lot of electrical right now.

Does anyone have suggestions for a rocker switch that is a clean fit and close match for the OEM panel? For those with the pillar panel, which one and are you pleased with the appearance and operation/location of switches?

Cool mod, thanks. If I can't find an aftermarket switch, that's definitely an option.

Anyone with opinions on the pillar mount with switches? Good, bad, otherwise?

Any other options for mounting switches?

There is always an Spod

I thought about that route, but if my only "electrical" mod on the immediate horizon is a pair of LED lights, I have a hard time dropping over 4 bills on an spod to support lights that cost less.

I figure that if I begin to do more electrical additions, I'll budget for the spod then.

If you aren't going to add a bunch of switched electrical components, don't buy an Spod or try to get the dash switches to work.

When buying the Dually D2 pair, it comes with an illuminated red rocker switch and wiring harness. All you need to do is to buy a rubber grommet that fits the hole on the drivers' side interior A pillar cover, that is just below the recessed screw hole that holds the pillar cover on.

Pop in the grommet and switch into the open hole on the A pillar, wiring it up, and installation couldn't be more simple.

I thought about going the route of putting on the rubber grommet and sticking it in the pillar, but I opted to put it below the steering wheel and to the left in the blank space. I'm glad I did because, for me, it would be distracting to have the red light in my eyeline.

Nuke83 check out Inspired Engineering; they have a plug n' play fog light kit for 135.00

I hope this wasn't against forum rules. If it was, I apologize.
