What is the size of that panel ? I like it and when I Rebody my max 2 it may work out good as I have a Bilge pump and Extra lighting .
Also I like that it already has a Volt gauge in it !

I am a 12-volt electrician by trade. I design build and maintain emergency vehicles. When you see a police car going down the road, I'm the person that installs all of the lights and sirens and radios and antennas and cages and gun mounts and computers and cameras.  I have also been involved in fire rescue my whole life. The local fire department has two 8 wheel argos set up for fighting brush fire and search and rescue and transport of injured persons.  My ride will strictly be for trail purposes. Eventually it will have both white spot/flood light and warning lights on it. That was the reason for the larger switch panel.

I got this marine grade switch panel on Amazon for $30.  Rewired it a little so that one switch acts as a master or ignition.  This switch then turns on the back lighting, the volt meter and powers the "horn" switch which is a momentary switch.  I use this as a starter switch.  The panel also has a power outlet and a port with 2 USB outlets.  It fits perfect on the Attex dash and being marine grade, I am not worried about water.  There are 4 more switches for auxiliary LED lighting as this is going to be a trail machine and not a racer.
