Hope everyone is doing well. As you all may know, I have been tirelessly working on the group buy for the custom A-Pillar mounts for us die hard Jeep fans. Well, there has been some criticism on how to wire them up, location for switches and the likes. I have been told the wireless route is a good idea. I agree. Added with the ability to have it synced with the home-link wireless garage door openers is an even more impressive find.
But I could not stop there. I am a fan of customizing everything I drive. I wanted to have a location to put rocker switches that looked oem. I thought about making a custom interior A-Pillar switch holder like the Jeep JK guys......but too harsh an angle to really accomplish it. I thought about putting a switch on either side of the e-brake location, but after lifting the panel up, there is too much going on down there to secure the e-brake switch to really interfere.
I then wanted to try placing them under the hvac controls. They would fit on that rear panel, but they would be very far back and out of sight for quick access.
I also have 5 different sets of led lights on my rig. One 20 inch curved spot/driving combo bar on the RRO bumper setup. A pair on the floods on the a-pillar mounts. A pair of 10 degree pins on the front roof basket. A 30" curved spot/flood combo on the rear to remind people to turn off their brights. And finally a pair of flush mounted floods on each side of the license plate to 1. aid in reverse and 2. add additional persuasion to turn off the high beams from cars behind me. ( I drive ALOT at night)
Wiring all of these to individual switches would be a nightmare. Hence the use of the sPOD. Everything is done for you. all you do is plug in the positive and ground to each of the circuits. That is it.
I have come up with the solution:
Have a custom panel made that wraps in the location as pictured. Very clean install and well designed by the people manufacturing the a-pillar mounts. Relocate the 12 volt accessory and media readers to the flat portion of the panel.
What are your thoughts.....besides the fact I have wayyyyy too many options for lighting lol. PS. Not my interior shot. Just found it online for a good angle for switch location.
