What is the name of the part below the speedometer where the factory fog light switch and rear window defrost switch is located? It's the flat black panel. I've searched Qtech and other sites, with no luck.

If the metal part is ok, maybe you can strip that plastic piece off and replace it?

The whole piece is plastic. Maybe that's because it did not come with any factory switches and was just a blank bezel.

I had actually been thinking of getting a piece of aluminum and doing the same thing. The plastic might be easier to work and shape. Great idea.

By the way, I ran the numbers on the back. It's a switch housing and discontinued on every NOS site that I located.

Thanks. I did not see the piece on the diagram.

Below is the piece. As you can see from the less than circular hole, it is brittle. So that is the piece I'm looking for.



That plastic bezel is 2 parts, the main part that screws to the dash and a plastic textured sticker that is attached to the front. The switches in that picture are just attached to the plastic sticker. You can cut the sticker out to the larger opening and run ARB style switches. I cut mine out and run 2 locker and 1 air compressor switches.

I did the samething agalloch did.

You can find them on eBay search for YJ dash bezels or call Davey's Jeep, or Dead Jeeps, your local boneyard should have them also.

Jarhead, you better be getting ready for Class 5 Dorian instead of messing with the Jeep. Good Luck to you and all the Floridians in the next few days

I saw similar ones on Qtech, thanks. I think that will be my best bet. I know they illuminate when on, however, do any of those switches "glow" when off?

I live on the Gulf Coast and SHOULD be just outside the danger zone. Emphasis on SHOULD. I just got home from Lowe's with some PVC to make a homemade snorkel, in case it floods. Just kidding. Completely unrelated to Dorian, but we are headed to Maggie Valley on Tuesday, weather permitting.

It depends on how you wire them. The way i wired mine there are lower lights that glow all the time and then when you turn them on the bigger upper light comes on.

I don't drive through SC on my trip. I take 75 to Macon, pick up 129 to 441 to Franklin. This route takes about an hour more than going thru Atlanta. I hate driving thru Atlanta, it's full of @$$holes. That part of SC is beautiful, though. I can see why you would want to live there.
