    I’ve got a 2011 TX pro double cab and I’m going to be adding a light bar to the bull bar on the front, ditch lights, reverse lights, and most likely an air compressor. Since I have the TX pro model all of the stock switch locations are full. I’m looking for recommendations for mounting an additional switch bank. I’ve seen the ones in other threads in the overhead locations. I would prefer not to have them on the overhead. Looking for any recommendations on where other people have put theirs? Looking for something clean that doesn’t have major cutting or modifications of the existing dash/center console. Switch panel recommendations are also appreciated.

    Just curious, what switches do you have that the Offroad does not?

    I’m guessing just the seat warmer switch. The factory switches I have:

    Fog lights
    Diff locker
    Power outlet
    Traction control
    Anti air bag
    Hill start assist

    Under the AC controls:
    A-trac
    Heated seats
    Aux input for the radio

    Gotcha, that makes sense. Earlier models must have had one less slot under AC controls then, I had two spares before I put my light switch in.

    How do you remove the panel below the AC knobs?
