    I’m not worried about cutting. I’m more worried about the steering rack shitting the bed.

    I've already snaked wiring for my microphone and dash cam up the pillar and over to the mirror; I didn't pull the headliner down to do it, and would probably be able to run these wires the same way.
    What center console do you have?

    I've already filled the lower left section by adding two light switches:

    I've considered adding the two ARB switches to the outer edges of the tray shown above, and may still do it.


    I had these two blanks on the left:
    54ewimWYGAWdWec9EqddKYqDS8mMyAq7vHAbOJfu_7d4e977868104ffa20a13cfd34daa3865cf2a00d.jpg
    ...and thought they'd go down there, but Don reminded me of why this might be a bad idea. I do have a dual-USB (power-only) unit to go into the right blank.



    I do have two sunglass holders, but they're the '12+ model that presses to release, so I guess I'm concerned about flush mounting the switch panel there, and having the whole door release and pivot down when I press a switch.

    Ahhh yes. That's a nice spot, but I use that cubby.
    I believe I'm going to use one of my sunglass holders up top,

    I believe they're all MicTuning switches. I acquired most from others here, and maybe one from eBay...

    I have two sunglasses cubbies. Now only one with the switch panel in one. But my Oakleys don’t fit in either so it was no loss for me.

    I had mine installed at Mobile Living in Concord. They did a great job. The panel is secure. Even banging around on the Rubicon didn’t pop it open.
