Rugged Ridge pillar pod, more than four switches?

It won't work, you need more room for the rocker switch backing and wiring to make the pillar pod fit correctly...I'm sure you can jam one in there but the pod will not seat right.

I have the pod. I wish they had them with like 6 switches. You can add more but not the full size switch like those. I kinda wish I would have just moder the factory pillar instead

I have 5 full size rocker switches in mine. It's pretty easy to fit if you take your time.

I cannot find them right now, but I KNOW I've seen switches that fit the standard size rectangular hole but had two rockers in it. Sort of like a dual switch that fits in a standard space. I cannot recall if I saw these on industrial machines or for marine applications, but I'm sure someone makes them. Finding something like that would allow 8 switches on the a-pillar, which I'd find pretty useful. Anybody know what I'm talking about or care to look too?

Now back to a 2013 JKU Rubicon with "stuff", planning 37's with minimal lift.

I've tried them all... Jeeps are still the best. (0||||0)
