New LED Panel Rocker Switches

I just got my new OTRATTW Rocker Panel Switches Installed. Very easy installation.

1 Hot wire to battery/Fuse Box

1 Ground Wire

1 wire to lights or wthatever the rocker will turn on

1 wire tapped into Dash Lights





I did have to shave the switches a little bit. They fit perfect into the panel, but the actual rocker has a slight arch to it, which rub against each other. Simple solution. I just put them on a belt sander for a few seconds & they were perfect. Here are pictures of them with lights on. They are green when the dash lights are on, & turn red on the bottom when the rocker is turned on.

Those look nice, a picture not 3" away from them would kinda be nice. I wonder if they clear a manual shifter.

Thanks, but:
1) If you read right above the photos it says "No problem clearing a manual shifter." So I know he meant a manual (6 Speed)

2)He asked for pictures that were not 3" away so I took some further shots.

Thanks again...

With the 6spd the shift boot will hit the switches (normal rockers), not the shifter itself. I believe that's what goody was getting at. What switch panel are you running, daystar?

I am thinking about getting some of these for my sPod. I would want to tie them into the dash lights though. Any more info in where you tapeed in so I can see how difficult it would be to add this to the sPod.

Nice setup. What wattage is better for Zombies? Also do they shy away from LED lighting more than halogen? Thanks

Nice. I need to add some more switches. Looks like a good alternative. I already have an S pod

Ah, then that will not clear the boot of a manual. Same panel I have, can only run one switch in it.

Very simple. Pull the dash panel off. Behind the panel going to the HVAC is a small bundle of wires. I just tapped into the orange w/ grey striped. Took 5 minutes.

You can use these switches for LED or Halogen offroad lights with no problems. the lights inside the switch are LED.
