Can anyone advise me what switches fit a 03 TJ switch panel? I have read that "contura" switches do but on OTRATWW there are three different contura switches.

Thanks

Get the ones you like best, I like the contura v line.

I ended up getting one from OTRATTW. Took a uninformed guess and got the right one....still never got a reply to the email I sent them.

We have had a few issues with emails not making it through. On the 2003 TJ, the OEM switch opening will require modification to get the switches to fit.

All the V series switch bodies are the same size, it's just the rockers that are different.

I have the switches from OTRATTW and they match the ones for my ARB locker.

Can I replace the rockers with the newer style ones with the cool graphics? :)

The V series laser etched rockers are interchangeable with the switch bodies you have now. The light shining through the V series rockers would be white to yellowish due to the incandescent lights in the switches. (V-series rockers are translucent white on the backside)

The easiest way to change out the rocker is with an actuator tool. I have seen guys also use a very small screwdriver as well.

For reference, the Contura V rockers are slightly wider than the Contura II.

I do have the actuator tool. :)

Bummer about the lights not being blue, but I can live with that. :)

Has anyone every tried replacing the little bulb with an LED + resistor? This project has been on the back burner for some time because it's just aesthetic but I want to get around to it at some point.
