    Before I go drilling and killing the dash........ :censor:

    wondering what kind of switch panels people have used and like. There are, oh, say 1.76 million options. I just don't like the idea of strategically placing every little switch. One panel and done seems about right.

    Ideas? Pics?

    Thanks.

    Overhaed panel mounted to rollcage with hoseclips.
    No drilling required.
    I have my locker/light switches there - easy to get at quickly!

    if youre not using the ash tray, pull it out and put them in there. Or get a small piece of angle, drill holes in it and put them in there, bolted to the underside lip of the dash.

    I'm using a Moroso switch panel in the space for the radio. It fits well, has 5 switches, and there was no need to do any cutting.

    Check the tech section here as well - Rick Alexander came up with a decent solution which uses the radio slot (if empty).
