TrePaul has a bunch of switches on his a-pillar which I've always thought was a cool place to put them. Or you could get an expo bezel for the dual switches.

UGHHHHHH this looks sooooooooooooo good and I want to do this sooooooooooooooo bad but I moved my trans cooler up so it gets more air and it would block the light from fitting on one side.

I'm thinking of mounting a couple of switches on the front of my center console.

My vote is for bumper mount, simply think they look better. plus look at how many people have em behind the grill.
