I thought my ARB switch install came out fairly well. They operate the front/rear locker and the compressor itself.

Somebody just posted a picture of 12volt guys (Seebass) din sized switch panel mounted below a single din stereo. looked clean. Search 12volt guy. he sells a lot of nice panels and will custom.

I will marlin soon so I need to relocate the switches for the rear window and lock. I think the window is going up on the dash next to the rear window defrost or next to the power antenna. The window lock is pointless so it will be removed.

I kind of think the left side dash pop out would be a good place for in cab winch. You could reach it with the window down if you are rigging or pulling somebody else.

I am thinking about cutting out the panel above the stereo so I can line up a set of switches there. Swap out the factory rockers to a matching momentary toggles. I figure you could get 5-6 toggles in that space once the rockers are changed over.

I am also scraping the complete center console and making one out of metal once I get a brake. Somebody has some pictures of of a custom console like that and it looks a 1000% better then cutting out the pocket for the second case to come up through. Even got some respectable cup holders that are not blocking the passenger seat!

I am so glad search is back!!! here is the console. This is sweet. http://www.mindspring.com/~jayk3/toyota/console.htm

Autometer speedo, autometer tach, oil pressure, water temp, air/fuel, volt, fuel level, tranny temp(also doubles as PS temp due to second sending unit and hidden micro switch), vac.

All laid out in factory sr5 style and once discontinued (i believe they are being remade) 3 gauge pillar pod.

Very COOL , thanks for posting this
I have thought of this Idea for a long time. Great to actually SEE it
I'll do that Gauge cluster when I do get a 4.3 in .
I may do the pillar for the Aux. Temp, vacuum, air/fuel ,
