abunda_amazon_reviews Handy solution for mounting rocker switches in a Jeep TJ. It may be just me, but I didn't realize that this only replaces one of the two center vents. So with two of these, you could mount 4 switches. I only needed two switches so it worked out great. You will need to cut these. I used an exacto knife and scored the existing rectangle on the back. Once I removed the rectangular section I still had to shave the opening to get my switches to fit. Once they go in, they are never coming out with pretty much destroying the pod. Overall, a slick and inexpensive solution for mounting a pair of rocker switches. I recommend this product.;;Reviewed in the United States on March 31, 2015;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Simple and low cost switch pod for Jeep TJ;;WakeStar65;;/gp/customer-reviews/R24X3LU0BT2KGA/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B004P3RKMO;;;The opening is not wide enough between the two vents on the side. Rugged Ridge, this is a great idea but your engineers need to learn how to use a tape measure. I can tell from other reviewers' pics I'm not the only one who experienced this issue. Perhaps I am the only one who let it be a deal breaker, though. My switches would rub each other whenever thrown, and did not allow for the positive, smooth clicking action these switches normally produce. This is such a large oversight and so easily rectified it's maddening. I likely will never purchase something from these clowns again. My initial solution was to grind down the side of my rocker switch. This was absolutely asinine, but it was my solution to make it work. Even this did not provide enough clearance. Look through other reviewers' photos, and you will notice I'm not the only one who made this alteration. I ended up throwing it away. A standard 2 or 3 gang rocker switch housing actually fits perfectly into the vent recess, and I screwed it downward into my dash bezel and the result is fantastic. It doesn't look as clean as the Rugged Ridge solution, but at least my switches function as they should now.
