The RedRock 4x4 A-pillar 4-switch panel is for those of you that have a 2007 to 2018 JK that are looking for a way to add some auxiliary switches to your Jeep. This is going to be a fairly easy install but I'm still gonna give it two out of three wrenches because there's a little bit of cutting of the panel itself to do to get the switches installed and, of course, some wiring to get those switches working but we're gonna show you how to get this panel installed in just a second. So one of the best things about a Wrangler is the fact that you can do a lot of customization but if you're adding anything electronic, whether it be lights, lockers, compressors, horns, whatever it might be, you are going to have to add some switches and there aren't a lot of locations to be able to do that. You can, of course, drill holes wherever you want to mount switches but if you're not into drilling a bunch of holes in the dash, buying a switch panel like this that will pop right into place is going to be an excellent option for you. Now there are gonna be a couple of different panels available, some go on the A-pillar on this side, there are others for the passenger's side, a couple that go in the center of the dash down near the shifter, but I really like this location. I think it looks really clean and I think the switches are very easy to access although some people aren't going to love this location because they can be a little bit distracting, especially because these are lighted switches. So that's completely up to you. One thing that I do like about this switch panel is that it's gonna be pretty inexpensive when you compare it to some of the other ones out there, especially for a four-switch panel that includes the switches and isn't just the panel itself. This one comes in at right around that $35 mark and I think that is very fair for what you're going to get. Now some of the other ones may fit a little bit nicer in a couple of different areas so if you're looking for something that's going to be as OEM as possible, maybe spend a little bit more, go with one of those other brands. But if you are looking to save a couple of dollars, this is going to be a great combination of both the panel and all four switches. So I mentioned the install before, let me show you how to get this in your Jeep.For this installation, we used a nice, sharp razor blade. We also needed a T20 Torx bit, a small 3/8 inch extension and a 3/8 impact, and finally a number two Phillips head screwdriver. This is gonna be a pretty easy installation but it does require a little bit of cutting here to get your switches installed. Other than that, no cutting of any of your factory stuff in the Jeep and we're gonna get to that in just a second. So the order we're going to choose to do this installation in is to cut the openings here and pop the switches into place, then install the switch panel into the Jeep. You can go ahead and do your disassembly first if you choose to, that doesn't matter so much. So first step, like I said, is to cut out these spots here for as many switches as you are going to be installing. We're gonna go ahead and make all four cutouts and pop all four switches in place. We're going to be using a very, very sharp razor knife, a brand new blade is a good idea here. You may also wanna switch out blades to keep them sharp, that will keep you from cutting yourself. Or you could use a Dremel or any number of tools to make these cuts if you want to. So we're gonna go ahead and start making our cutouts. Once all of your holes are cut you, can go ahead and pop the switches in place.Now that we have all the switches installed in the panel, we can install the panel in the Jeep. That panel is going to replace this one that's on the Jeep from the factory. In order to get this out of the way, we have to remove this corner piece and in order to do that, first, we have to remove the two screws from the sun visor. First thing we're gonna remove is a small plastic screw clip in this hole right here. The last couple of screws to remove are the ones that hold your sun visor on. They're gonna be these two small Torx head screws. As you can see, once those screws are removed, this corner piece of plastic will come right down. Now we can remove this lower A-pillar trim piece. This doesn't have any fasteners from the outside, just a couple of pieces on the inside that hold it into the metal. So just give it a tug and it'll pop loose. So now that this piece is removed, we just have to take the metal clip off the back side of it and transfer it onto our new switch panel. This clip really isn't designed to be removed and reinstalled a couple of times so it is gonna be a little bit difficult to get it removed without completely bending it and destroying it but use a straight blade screwdriver, be careful, take your time, you'll be able to get this off and reuse it. Now that you have the clip removed from your factory trim piece, you can install it on your new switch panel. Now we can get the panel in the Jeep. Now we can put this corner trim piece back in place, that will get held up with the sun visor. Next, we'll install a couple of bolts that go through the top of the trim up here. The last thing we have to do to finish the installation is put the small plastic clip back in place.So if you are looking for an inexpensive A-pillar switch panel including all four switches, I would recommend this option from RedRock 4x4 and you could find it right here at extremeterrain.com.

A pillar switch panel
Not happy with this on my 09 Wrangler. Either received the wrong switch pillar or just a poor fit. Had to trim the bottom to get the piece installed and it still doesn't fit correct at both sides. When you shut the door it moves the pillar. Will upgrade to a better one soon.Helpful (2)
