Question Switches inbetween cup holers and shifter

Has anyone put switches in this location and if so how hard to do??

Thinking about putting in a couple of military switches for a locker bypass

bad idea. your first Low Carb Monster you forget to tighten the lid on will kill your switches. maybe not at first but eventualy they will be corroded or gummed to hell. I put some on the flat area right under the arm rest next to the e-brake. your hand falls naturally there and its not going to get yor mocachino spilled onto it

But if you do decide to go near the cup holders: that entire center area pops right up easily to run wires/drill

I put my heated/cooled seat switches there, with custom LED indicators even. And I drink fruit juice Monsters... So what of it? Huh? Huh?!

thats where i put my locker bypass switches. there is another layer of plastic underneath that i had to cut out so the switches would sit flat, easily removed with a dremel.

I assume I should read sarcasm into this? If not you should research the 2011 JKs.

Heh, with the zoomed in pic, it's hard to tell, but you're right, I didn't know the 2011 had leather!
And I want the steering wheel buttons too!!!

Yeah, they are pretty plush. I came from an '04 rubicon, so this was quite a culture shock. I had a hard time getting used to nav, leather, heated seats, power windows/locks and four doors for that matter! However, after a couple months with it I would never go back.

I mounted some switches in that same location on my Tuffy console.
