Looking for ideas on how to best layout the dash and console for my buggy. If anyone has pics of theirs and opinons on what works and what you would change on yours that would be great.

Thanks in advance!

This has been covered before but heres mine again.



Only thing I am going to change is to put all the wiring behind the dash with a connector coming out to the rest of the chassis. Right now the fuse blocks an relays are on the firewall and it's kind of a rats nest.

If I were to build a new one I'd use toggle switches for the ARB's like the rest of the switches. The ARB marine style rocker switches take up too much space.

Take up too much space for what:confused: I'm going the opposette and running all ARB type switches. One, I like the ease of just push to switch even with gloves on. Two, I got a bunch of them for free sooo.

the top 2 are my front and rear winch controls. only thing i would change is to get a volt gauge the same size as the other ones, and get the stereo installed.
