PostSubject: 12VoltGuy dual E-Locker switch panel   Wed 26 May 2010, 12:34 am

So here's something I got in the mail today and am very stoked about: a custom 12VoltGuy switch panel for my Eaton E-Lockers! It's a sweet little piece of kit. This is my first experience with a 12VoltGuy piece, and I can see what all the fuss is about. The guy obviously knows what he's doing, down to including nutserts to use when installing it in the dash so that it's not necessary to remove the dash to remove the panel. I'm replacing the entire wiring setup all the way to the diff. The wiring and plugs that come with the Eatons aren't the highest caliber. This stuff is perfect, including the WeatherPak connectors. I'm going to snip the wiring for the lockers just outside the diff, butt-connect (and cover with shrink tubing) the diff side of the switch on, and then run the wire up to the dash, inline fuse, and then the switches.

In an email I pointed out his Toyota E-Locker switch panel that gave me the idea in the first place, showed him where I'd mounted the existing default rocker switches (used a dremel to cut out the openings), and gave him a mock-up of what I wanted:

Current:



Mock-up:



After asking a few clarifying questions he said no problem and had it done the next day. Perfect piece of cake. Ordered Wednesday, shipped Friday, arrived today (Tuesday).













I'm headed out to K2 for the entire Memorial Day weekend event, and I'll be glad to have that sucker installed Friday afternoon! Smile

You are a bit too ambitious about what you'll get done Friday afternoon, better bring your generator and some flood lights lol

Heh, maybe Very Happy

If the panel doesn't get installed, it won't be the end of the world. The current stuff should still work. George said the rear switch basically just fell apart when he disconnected it to take out the rear axle for the truss, and so he wired on some disconnects to keep it going for now.

The roll cage padding should be easy, bolting down the bumper and winch shouldn't be too hard, so I'm really hoping to get time to get that wiring installed. Even if I have to work by flashlight Smile
