AUX light switches, in cab winch control and ESP disable

Wife was gone for a few days and I was able to get some stuff done on the jeep I installed the AUX light switches though they are not hooked up to anything on the other end yet. One thing that I'm wondering about is if the brightness of the indicator won't bug at night. (stupid system rotated the picture)



I also worked on getting the in cab winch control and ESP disable. The winch control is not hooked up either (cable is in passenger's feet) but it's all ready The toggle is above the E-Brake and immediately to the right of it is an on/off switch that disables the winch control. To the right of that there is another toggle that controls the ESP. That one is working Btw, the toggles are rotated sideways as I drilled the holes to high up and I couldn't fit them vertical. The added benefit is that if something leans back from the cup holder there is a smaller likelihood of the switch being triggered then if it was straight up and down.

Nice work! I have the a-pillar switches too and the brightness isn't too bad. In cab winch control would be really handy! Do you have a way to disable it so when you have top/doors off and leave it parked some nosey kids don't hop in and start hitting buttons?

Thanks
I'm planning to fuse the line to the switch under the hood. That way all I need to do is pull a fuse.

It may not matter to you, but the ESP wire is not 12 volt, it's data only, so the light will not work on your switch.

It's the ability to disable the abs, anti skid and whatever else related systems. Comes in handy off road
