Re: Projext "V8 XJ" Build

So I wanted a better solution for a switch panel. I was looking into getting a SPOD but I didnít want to spend $500 on one. I found these by Autointech. They seem pretty well received in the JK community. I ordered one of their universal kits. The build quality looks pretty nice and I like having a central control box under the hood for all of the wiring.


I planned on mounting it over the rear view mirror. However itís a little too big and the angle doesnít quite match the roofline. I could probably make it work, but would look sloppy.


So then I decided Iíll make my own box to mount over the mirror. This should fit 6 switches. It fits in-between the visor screws and will use those to mount it up.


Iíll post more progress once I have time to get back to it.

New Jeep is registered. It drives really nice other than it needs an alignment. Busted out the camera today and took some photos of it. Enjoy!

Re: Projext "V8 XJ" Build

Cut and bent the overhead switch panel. Just need to find a way to cleanly do the cutouts for the switches. Dremel may be the only way that I can do it.

Re: Projext "V8 XJ" Build

I made a switch box with a hobby box, but they sell trim bezels to fit the switches for a clean look.

I never thought about a pre-cut bezel. Went on amazon and found this:

Projext "V8 XJ" Build

If you have a paid membership you can. Jeep looks sick man. Makes me wish i didnt treat mine like crap.

You could also try tapatalk. Thats what i use. It hosts the pics for me right from my phone and it will resize them for you as you post. Gives you three size options too.

Not to hijack, but tapatalk hasn't been working for me lately. I can access all the forums and subforums, click a thread to open and it spins forever. maybe I need to update it or something....

Rig looks awesome!! How much did your shackle relo kits add in lift? about to put mine on and not sure which front coil to pair up with them. I have extended shackles as well.
