Cool switch mount with better picture

I came up with this to mount my switch for my light bar today. I already use the daystar switch panel for my winch and 1 set of auxiliaries that are mounted in the windshield pillars. I also have 2 switches I mounted on the center console behind the e-brake for my back up lights. I had ran out of room. So I grabbed an inch and a half socket, drilled a whole in, ran some double sided tape on the bottom and voila. It looks sick.

Glad you like it! Not for me but to each their own. It's a great idea and I'm sure there are guys that will do the same.

Glad to see you got the Jeep back on it's feet, but the socket is upside down.

Cool to see you took the time to do something original to your ride that you like.

That scares me a bit (what could happen). I hope the tape has a strong hold on that 1-1/2" socket.

In an accident, that socket could be a projectile that would suck to catch in your eyeball or teeth.

Hope you never find out what that could be like.

I was fortunate enough to get 1/2 doors when I bought my Sahara, so no electric window buttons to take up the space where I put my switches. I have switches for my front and rear electric lockers, front 12" light bar, and Rigid Industries cube lights on the pillar. The rocker switches are from OTRATTW.com and are worth every penny! I don't have a pic of them lit up, but they have a light showing the switch is activated, as well as back lighting to run with your dash lights.


Current vehicles:
2007 Sahara 2-Door
5.38 gears
Trussed, sleeved, gusseted Dana 44 front w/ factory Rubi locker and RCV shafts
Stock rear Rubi Dana 44 with Auburn Ected locker w/ 35 spline chromoly shafts
6 Speed
2.5 Rock Krawler X Factor System w/ Bilstein 5100 shocks
17X9.5 Spyderlock Beadlocks
37X12.50R17 Nitto Trail Grapplers
F&R AEV Bumpers w/ AEV rear tire carrier
JCR Stage 2 rock rails
Warn Zeon 10-S winch

Agreed. I have had impact sockets shatter before. Its amazingly disturbing how much force little bits of metal have...

At least you will always know where your 1.5" socket is!
