This is a set up that a customer wanted located towards the back of the center tub. This is the bezel style switch panel and the customer wanted it in a location that he could hit the buttons easily while driving. This is in a 1500 Ecodiesel not that it matters but for visual aid of the size of the switch panel. We have also used these in the JK's on an a pillar mount.

The AEV switch panel is by far the best option I have seen.

Just sell it to us AEV. We are ready to give you our money.

Agreed that AEV is the best option...trying to find something that doesn't require an ECU reflash nor a big LCD touchscreen. Waiting for this fine addition...and think it will keep the hat in its place on the dash as well!!!

Like some people have mentioned before, the Prospectors/Rams are awesome and very popular. There are so many people that want the matching rear AEV bumper, the front Diesel skid plate and also this switch panel and are willing to throw money at them. It is funny that a heat reduction hood (it is a great looking hood, don

We didn't plan on selling this housing as an individual part, we originally tooled this product for the upfit side of our business where we needed an OE looking housing to have good switches with a tactile feel (I hate touch screen or switches with minimal tactile feedback when off-roading) but its part of a larger system on the upfit side and unlike virtually all similar products out there that are inexpensive vacuum formed plastic, this unit is a three pc injection molded part.

So...Here is a question for you guys? If we were to offer this switch housing (just the housing, you add Carling Switches), would you be willing to pay $100?

Being that the space you have used of the switches is really wasted space (i can't think of a thing that would "fit" in that cubby without falling out) I would be willing to spend the money. Especially since, in theory, you could use a "universal" 6 switch application from a different company to fill it's internals or (if you were good enough with wiring) make your own system of switches for a reasonable amount of money.

Obviously very small potatoes to what you have going on in the big picture of AEV, so i think most of us understand the reasoning for it not being a pressing item.

That being said, would there be a possibility of working with a side company to use your design to bring a product to market? It seems to me, that the popularity of the ram trucks is just taking off.. and will continue to climb for the foreseeable future.

Personally, I'd pay it.

You can buy all sorts of switches for just about any purpose and color and legend from OTRATTW.
