Overhead Console Rocker Switch Wiring - 100 Series Land Cruiser Overland Rig Build

In this one we route our rocker switch wiring harness from the engine compartment through the A-Pillar and headliner to the overhead console. I also run an ignition power source from the kick panel. I broke this video out from the switch panel install since this is something that can be useful for a number of projects.

Hope you enjoy the video.

Here's a link to the piggyback/tap-a-fuse connectors.

I wanted to install rocker switches in the sunglasses holder ever since I saw a thread on ih8mud. I finally pulled the trigger bought a some switches, a relay box and my first pair of led lights, videos coming soon. The initial installs I saw did not have homelink and unfortunately that makes the install a little more complicated but I made it happen. Hope you enjoy the video.

Picking a Switch Panel and Relays for our 100 Series Land Cruiser

I have been wanting to install a rocker switch panel and relays to power up some lights on the land cruiser for quite a while. I really like the spod but it is very expensive. I considered other more economical models like the trigger and s-tech. During my search I ran into the apollointech voswitch equipment on a jeep forum. It cam highly recommended by that community so I decided to try it out. I purchased the apollointech voswitch 6 switch universal kit for about $150. It is remarkable similar to the spod and has many of the same features. I really like the construction of the relay box. To mount the switches in the overhead sunglasses holder I needed to buy a switch plate. I also picked up my first set of sxma led driving lights to go on the arb bumper. This is going to be a fun project and can't wait to see the results. Here are links to the stuff we are using:
