Very nice! I may have to get some for my girlfriend's XJ eventually. The only switch panels I've really liked before were from http://www.12voltguy.com/

Not sure I would spend money on a YJ one, they are very easy to make (if you dont need the labels, could always do a stick on label if needed)

mine was only around 20$ in parts and took very little to make, peice of angle aluminum, grip tape, and switches....

Holy crap that's a lot of guages, does that YJ fly or something?

I like that switch panel but I usually use my ashtray in my XJ for an MP3 player holder. Works good.

Pretty sure all those gauges are factory from the looks of it.

I know that, but with all the added switches and stuff, just looks like a lot of crap.

I guess I must be old-school with my XJ, I still use the stock CD player and sound system. Only thing I upgraded was some Blaupunkts in the front because the previous owner put the wrong size speakers in.

Oh well, at least Gunsworth listens to 89X.

I have had my CDs stolen twice, the cost of the ipod was less than all those cds and I havent paid for music since I bought it. I was on 89x though, my ipod is wired into the cd changer input.

more switches will go in was i go with an electric fan. So far those are for winch control, winch power, fog-lights, off-road lights, and reverse lights. all I need to do is drill another hole in the plate for more switches in the future.

Yeah, I have one of those tape adapters for my MP3 player to plug into my cassette player.
I don't have a winch or anything on my Jeep, I need to get one. I almost wired in a Taurus fan but I'll figure that out later.
