Switch mounts

Planing out my wiring for my lights. I just have one set in now and I plan on mounting more which in my layout I would like at least three switches to operate the lights. One for the front one for the back and one for the sides. I sat in my jeep for about an hour staring at the dash with no luck. I found a set of toggles but there two big for any spot in the dash. Any ideas or pics of what you have done to help with the creative process would be appreciated. I'm thinking of mounting a box on top of the dash with a tilt gauge just not sure. Thanks in advance.

just a question but is there a way to put in push style buttons along side where you can disable/enable the parking sensor? Pretty much make them look factory in that location.

Anything is possible, but that seems like it would take a lot. Why do you want to disable the back up sensor? Its not annoying or anything.

Dont know - they look like there are perforations for buttons to go there (or at least they do in mine). Just remove that spot and put a switch/button in its spot. Then again this is all just saying - havent removed the dash to see whats going on in there.

I dont think you read it correctly. I believe he was refering to the location where the button is...

That looks like a question to me.

I know depending on the options you picked there may be a button there or not. For example, I dont have the traction control button and others do.

It would be a lot of work to install buttons/switches in the OEM button cluster. The blanks are removable and could be drilled to fit said switch, but the computer board and harness socket is right behind that area and there is little to no room for wires and connections. I looked into this when installing my aftermarket heated seats (I even have an extra cluster with the heated seat option), but wound up making the most of my non-homelink upper console area. Not sure exactly what kind of switch you are wanting to use, but these rocker-switches are 21mm in diameter (~7/8") and IMO seem to fit in with the stock electronics pretty well. Plus I love flipping overhead switches, especially when it's to open the sunroof and heat my seats.
