    I did get a glimpse of a side as they turned to know the "indent" on the side did run full front-to-rear like you show.

    Every now and then a blind squirrel finds a nut...

    I have a goal of mounting switches in a dash panel of the jeep. 15/32" is a drill bit that would be just right. I'm thinking pawn shops / used tool shops as this will likely be a one-time tool. Pawn shop 1 - nothing. Between there and #2 is Downtown Ace - a fantastic store. They have'm... for $16 bucks. A tad steep for a one-time use tool of this sort - but if push comes to shove they're open late. Down the road to pawn #2... "do you have drill bits" not really, but we have this NICE SET for $52. It was a nice set - but way out of my project range. I'm only looking for a single 15/32" (plus or minus a size). Over to a jumble pile table I see one large drill bit peeking out - grab it - 15/32". The sales guy was floored as was I. Ring me up! How's $1... I happily put $2 on the counter and called it a good day.

    Now out to the garage to remove calibrated amounts of plastic from my dashboard.

    Drilled 4 holes in the floor of my jeep today - always lots of fun drilling into them! Good luck. Measure and mark a lot of times and hopefully only drill once. FWIW - mine came out correct - all holes fit up well with the mount.

    I appreciate your sense of adventure!

    Thanks Mike.

    Holes tended / switches test fitted - bare and with dust boots. I need to work with labels (some day).

    I will enjoy tending the wiring - quality ends (crimped, lightly soldered, clear heat shrink insulation with a label captive underneath), nicely routed, decently protected.

    Getting rid of some of the slapstick wiring the jeep has will be a-good-thing (tm).

    Switch layout L>R: Winch in/out, Diff Lock Compressor, Diff Lock Rear, Diff Lock Front, Dome Lights / Spare switch, Winch Enable, Tire Compressor

    Some might question the Winch Enable with odd placement. Goal - I wish to have the main winch in/out somewhat isolated so an errant hit won't have it activating (pulling in when it's in storage mode - end of line tightened at the fairlead). I have the Winch Enable, which needs to be on before Winch in/out works. Enable is over to the right - away from In/Out for errant hits. Tire Compressor - far right as I can see myself reaching in from the passenger door to turn it on.

    Hole placement in the panel is not as aligned as I desire but it's done and looks good for Jim-Work (function before form).

    The sharp eye will notice a difference in the switch types. Double-Pole--Double-Throw for Winch In/Out, sure. The rest could be Single-Pole--Single-Throw but two are Double-Throw. The local vendor, Mountain States Electronics ran out of singles and sold what I needed in doubles at the same price. Nice of them. They also, when picking out dust boots, noticed two different styles and made sure all boots were of the same style (one of those "form" things - I didn't catch it but am happy they did).

    Im sure most of you saw this video on the road rage incident down here in the springs. We just happened to be at the aspalt to dirt conversion spot where we air down and disconnect when a channel 5 van pulled up, and the reporter who did this story hops out and starts setting up a camera. I started talking to her about the whole thing and next thing you know Im wearing a mic and being interviewed. She even got a shot of the new Explorer in there!!

    Wow I watched the video on facebook https://www.facebook.com/lyfe.engelh...type=2&theater and I have to say that guy is lucky to be alive. Classic bully, and from his build and punching style he does not appear to have the physical tools to back up his mouth. The driver just shrugs off two sucker punches, that says a lot. You never know who the other driver is, what their training is or what type of weapon they have. My 74 year old neighbor would have pulled her gun and shot him. Stupid choice.

    I agree Paul. However, as you hear me say, "you can pass someone almost anywhere". The kid shouldve let him pass but obviously was being a jerk and not getting out of the aggressors' way, and depending on where the aggressor got behind him, it could have easily been a long ugly drive up to where the situation happened. Thats a long washboardy road (washboard is enough to tick someone off) behind a subie that wont let you by........recipe for exactly what we see in the video. On the other hand, that was no reason to put hands on the kid. He shouldve gave him a good tongue lashing and left it at that.

    Pulling a carry is the absolute last resort. I didn't see a place where it was called for.
    Agreed he held back with this clown ( don't think I could have held back like he did)

    I agree. I drive a LOT in my profession and see it all the time. Saw the same thing on Kenosha pass, guy would not let another merge, they both stopped traffic, guy got out started punching passenger. Too many people , too little space = Stress = violence = stupidity - not always in that order.
