    Cleaned up the excess rtv around the edges. If you are more patient than I was, the rtv should hold the two pieces together fine, so you wouldn't need the screws.

    Looks even better cleaned up still can't wait to see the illuminated shots!!...I keep saying that because I am trying to decide to go with image top, text bottom switches like you have there or image top, text middle, bar bottom switches... lol

    The switches that i got from waytekwire, are only lighted when On, so i got the regular covers, instead of the covers with the bar.
    Otrattw sells the dual led switches, but they are $9-11 each. only difference in how i have done this writeup, and using the dual led switches is- you would need to run a wire from the switches to a "hot with lights on" source wire.
    Even if you don't get the covers with the bar at the bottom, the Name at the bottom would light up (with the covers i got), with the dual led switches.

    Here's a pic of the back of my switches wired up.
    uploadfromtaptalk1388184585566.jpg
    There's plenty of room behind the windshield trim panel for the wiring, I loomed my wiring in electrical tape and then made sure nothing was close to the snap clips while reinstalling the panel
    Note- i had ordered some of the 90 degree (flag) female quick connectors- you don't need these if using the daystar, just get the regular female quick connector terminals, they are much easier to crimp.
    *- added the regular female quick disconnect terminals to the required items list on first post.

    Please note- this picture is upside down in relation to the pin locations on the switches, Pin 7 is at the bottom in the picture.

    Here is the relay panel behind the glove box, all wired up.
    uploadfromtaptalk1388184769860.jpg
    Note- I have more wiring than typical, because I will have 5 more switches in another location for 2 horns, 4 seat heaters, and winch in/out.
    My extra wiring waiting to go to the other switches is below the glove box for now

    I later taped up the positive pole on the back of the relay panel.
    I went ahead and ran 5 wires out through the firewall for my outputs, I don't have anything to actually hook up yet, but I bundled the wires behind the battery. the wires are not actually connected to the output of the relay panel yet, otherwise they would be safely taped off to not touch ground.

    Note the fuse at the battery on the 8 gauge power wire.* I used a fuse for now, will switch it out for a circuit breaker later, added 50 Amp Circuit breaker to list from waytekwire in post #1

    Here is where I grounded mine- passenger side kickpanel- there are 2 stock ground bolts there-

    And here is an example that SaddleTramp showed me- on 2012 or newer, you should have a hole in the firewall, that you could run your cables through.

    I am going to check if that hole is there on older jk's. Edit- just found on my 07, so I am guessing all jk's should have this hole. It is behind the wire loom above the battery. Thanks SaddleTramp and Will!
