Unicorn Hunting?

I have been searching for quite a while, but have not been able to find this....

I have an A-Pillar switch bank that uses the rectangular (Carling) rocker switches. I am looking for a voltmeter that will go in the spare opening that I have. Kind of like the one in the attached pic...but horizontal as opposed to vertical.

Anyone know of one that is available?

Looks cool but I would think it pretty inconvenient having usb cords coming off the a pillar. Not withstanding.... won't work too well for your passenger.

I am not interested in having the USB ports so much... I am looking for just the voltmeter part.... But sideways instead of up and down. The picture was the result of a quick Google search.

Mine was apparently a unicorn then. Only thing not stock was the stereo and I would have installed the same one anyway.

Damn I found 2 of those before I got my JK. I passed on them because the aftermarket long arm option was basically full custom only at the time.

Something like this might work with a little file work.

If you search a bit more under "panel mount led volt meter"
you could probably find the exact size and color you are looking for.

I wouldn't count on them being water resistant or even accurate but for a dash mount they should work fine

if it breaks just buy another

Some other places to try are digikey.com and mouser.com but they get expensive

Thanks lacab...

I was hoping to find something that matched the existing switches. I may have to go the route you suggested.
