Hey All, it’s been a long time coming but I have officially completed this project and am moving into production. it’s just my wife and I making these by hand. We take our time and try to make these look and function as close to original as we can. As with all hand made products there will always be minuscule variations but we test each panel before we send it off and make sure we have good alignment and symbol illumination. Here is what we have: Switch Trim Covers These have been painstakingly reproduced to be a very close copy of the original. They definitely look great in my MJ and I’m very particular about the way things turn out. Here are the current versions: 1. Fog lights and Cargo light 2. Transmission Power/Comfort and Sport Bar Lighting (these things are like unicorns) 3. Sport bar and blank (for you manual tranny guys who want an original option) 4. Double sport/auxiliary lighting (a neat custom version that I decided to produce in quantity) 5. Custom one-off options are getting very popular! Custom panels are an extra $20. Even custom pieces are made to look like factory options. If there is a factory symbol available for the switch I try to incorporate that. See examples of custom work below Installation instructions link Factory replacement switches These are new OEM switches that are direct replacements for your old ones. They can be used to add pretty much any circuit you like and look perfectly at home (as they should) Switch Panel Illumination These bulb sockets fit the factory switch housing and can be spliced into your existing dash illumination so the switch icon is illuminated just like factory. These use the same “74” bulbs as original. Switch Plug Harness Pigtail These are the factory style switch plugs that are pre terminated with 24” wires so you’ll have plenty of slack. They plug into the switch and consist of a simple power, ground and load. If you decide not to use these you can use standard insulated female spade terminals available almost anywhere. The connector just makes it more oem quality and prevents a connector from coming loose easily. Timing: Current lead time is 2 weeks to ship. The first sets are limited quantity. Pricing: Switch Panels $40/ea $75/pr (only for the stock oem styles. Custom pricing will depend on demand but a one-off can be made if you really need one. Send me a PM for what you need. OEM Illuminated Rocker Switches: $55 /ea $100/pr. Some aftermarket rocker switches will also fit the hole so if your not concerned about a stock appearance there are plenty of other options that are more economical. I have a limited stock of oem switches also so I’ll have to see what the demand is for these. Illumination bulb socket and pigtail: $8/ea (these are very popular given that the oem ones tend to break easily) Switch Connectors: $Ask. Switch holders/Base $20/ea. These are factory switch holders that are cleaned, sanded and refinished. They look factory new. If you order them at the same time as the panels, they will come fully assembled. Shipping: pretty much $5-15 for anything you need. Will ship usps priority mail. Shipping times are about 5-10 days depending on where you are. Hawaii and west coast is the quickest. Ordering: Please feel free to shoot me an email or a PM for questions or to place an order. My email address is derek @ dbdguam.com (remove the spaces when typing). Please let me know what you need in your e-mail. Please also keep in mind that I am 16hrs ahead of Central time. Will have more pics up over the weekend.
Hello all, Just putting the finishing touches on the dash switch trim covers and am looking to see what versions everyone would be most interested in via poll. Just want to get an idea of how many of each to work on first. These are hand made, multi layered switch trim covers for the obsolete and hard to find factory options. Please see images below for examples of the switch layouts. These will be VERY similar to factory though I won’t say identical. Every effort has been made to reproduce the logos and text according to factory. Original models were vector traced and scanned to be as true to the original as possible. The logos will shine through just like factory and light dispersion and color will be very close to the original. Each cover is hand made in multiple layers (just my wife and I working in these) and take some time to produce.
Hey gang! I've searched a bit and can't quite find what I'm looking for, so here goes: I just completed that bed swap from my '86 donor to my '88 DD. While I was swapping the wiring harness over from the '88 I noticed that I had this weird little light behind my bumper. It's like a license plate lamp, but it shines on the ground instead of the plate because, well, it's behind the bumper. I thought it was cool, so I got it working, but I'm still left wondering- WHY? What is it for? My best theory is license plate light if for I choose to remove my bumper, beause there's square holes under it like you would use to mount a tag. Anyone know? I've never seen it on any other MJ. (ignore ugly temporary wire routing)
