Yes it can be done. See my profile. Neighbor put a 2 position swich on his dash, left of steering wheel, inches? Down from windshield separation. Can tell/ help you more. Possible take pic and post if you want.I ask you as I asked him. WHY?

I understand that it can be done, (from turddog), but need more info - such as type and size of switch, and maybe a small wiring diagram. You might guess that I am a "rookie" at this stuff. I want to do this because my feet are to big to fit between the side panel and the clutch. Ron

RON, My neighbor, Ron, is an electrician. He has a 1983 CJ 7.(I am a plumber, but have and done many CJ modifications on mine and others) I will take PIC really soon of his set-up. Wiring this is REALLY a NO-BRAINER. Will show you this also in a pic. Verify your Jeeps NOMENCLATURE. Unclear in post.

Going now if he is at home.

Love, Turddog

Kinda all we could do in a hurry. This should be simple enough.

Keep in mind this is neighbors Jeep,in pic, and is not a reflection on mine. ALL other pics, I constructed w/ marker + wire connectors....may have to zoom in !!!

IF YOU can "PM" me with your Email address can send you lots of pics w/ super "NELSOMATIC" modifications.

His switch mounted Left and right.

I WOULD HAVE IT LOW down....HIGH up!!!

What I show can be removed and put back original w/ no cut wires!!!

OUTER 2 wires are SWAPPABLE they will just swap H and L on the actual switch......turning the switch around does same thing.

By GOSH , I get very few replies.....spent some time here! BETTER REPLY!!!!!!!!!........CJ and WRANGLER 2 different animals....didn't know which you had!!

Love, Turddog

I would have installed an angle bracket under dash w/ switch, Ron don't care about hole, look at his speaker!

I tried to re-send the pictures, but I don't think it worked? They were very good pictures.
