ARB Switches

I just got me a air locker and im trying to figure out where im going to place the 2 swiches inside the vehicle. Those of you that have one where did you place em? pictures would be great.

Here is a picture of the switches that are used for the Compressor and Air Locker. (I have 2 to mount) The one on the right is the actual switch and the one on the left is just the plastic you pop on top of it to make it look all nice with the blue light.

What about making a panel for the cubby next to the passenger air bag switch? Thats probably where I'd put them, but what do I know I went with OX.

I didn't use the ARB switch and I just have my switch temp mounted under the front center console deal. My compressor is all automatic and key-on so I don't have a switch for it.

I know, that wasn't much help. lol

Haha, no its all good. im thinking about removing the ash tray and the on/off airbag switch and making a center console just in the front right there and fitting the switches. I got 2 months to think about it, since im not at home for that time period.

Well this is what i ended up doing instead. Made my own plate to attach everything. Not like i need that passenger airbag switch and i dont smoke and no ones smoking in my truck so dont need that ash tray.

All of the bending can be donein a 5 or 6” vice with some wood.

If I need more switches that is what I will do, thanks Ranger06FX4.

One more thing, if the panel is straight and you want to mount a gauge along with the switches, use tilt tubes, I think Autometer has them to angle the gauge towards you. If you mount the panel as Ranger06FX4 did then all is as pictured.

IMHO, just thinking out loud.

I though at first to put sides and change the angle, but i figured i would lose too much space for no reason, and i dont really need anymore switches since this truck is pretty much done.
Im happy with the way it turned out.

OK on the Switch panel being as you want it, that’s the only way !

If you wanted to mount a CB, you could make the bottom of the panel to mount the CB at any angle.

The CB is going in the other trucks, I cant really use this truck anymore as a travel truck/Tow truck. Its my all around truck that i love for going on those small trails or camping or other random things...
Small trails...(Pic)
