Default Really cool switches

I was browsing for new switches for the Jeep and found some really cool ones for almost anyone. Carling rocker switches with laser etched lighted rocker labels including:

Zombie and Zombie apocalypse lights
Zombie targeting system
Passenger Seat Eject
And more

As well as all the old standby switches. Best selection I have found yet.

Click on switch descriptions. Each rocker has five different configurations to go with it so you can customize your application.

Those are very nice and not bad prices for complete switch/cover either. I will have to use these.

I am not a big fan of those switches for no other reason than the look just doesn't appeal to me. What is the going rate for them? On the website linked above the most minimal switch is 14.00.

Perhaps it is because I am on a budget, but I would rather get 10 toggle switches for the price of 1 Carling switch. That and it is easier to drill a hole than cut a rectangle when mounting the switches.

To each their own though...

I bought five switches from them. The guy does custom work at no extra cost as long as he doesn't have to make new icons for you. When I get them I will detail what I got.

It has been awhile since I created this thread, but a lot has been added to this line of switches

First of all, there is an addition of style to the Contura Switches. There is now the Contura 14. It is more square, but still stylish as the Contura 5

http://www.otrattw.net/CONTURA-XIV-ROCKER-ONLY-NOVELTY/

He has come up with new designs in his switches. Here is one for your headlights

http://www.otrattw.net/CONTURA-XIV-H...C14DD-538.html

Denver D1 might like this one

http://www.otrattw.net/CONTURA-V-ZOM...PZCZL-1ZL.html

http://www.otrattw.net/CONTURA-V-ZOM...PZCTO-5ZT.html

Those of you who cut power to your winches might like thishttp://www.otrattw.net/CONTURA-V-WENCH-POWER-UPPER-DEPENDENT-LED-ONLY-V1D1BH0B-PZCNL-1WE.html

Tony, when you get your horn rigged up how about this

http://www.otrattw.net/CONTURA-V-TRA...PZCMD-TRH.html

I got this for my wife's remote trunk button

http://www.otrattw.net/CONTURA-V-TRU...PZCTM-5CH.html

A light switch for our northern members

http://www.otrattw.net/CONTURA-V-TRU...PZCTM-5CH.html

And for our radio buffs

http://www.otrattw.net/CONTURA-V-RAD...PZCOA-500.html

And for those with rock lights

http://www.otrattw.net/CONTURA-V-LAN...PZCLL-UFO.html

And he even has a soft spot for Cherokees.

http://www.otrattw.net/CONTURA-V-JEE...PZCWK-5BB.html

http://www.otrattw.net/CONTURA-V-JEE...PZCWK-5RL.html

http://www.otrattw.net/CONTURA-V-JEE...PZCWK-5RK.html

http://www.otrattw.net/CONTURA-V-JEE...PZCWK-5LB.html

http://www.otrattw.net/CONTURA-V-JEE...PZCWK-5WL.html

This is just a sample of the cool stuff he has now. Butt one other cool thing he has is a plastic tool that allows you to change the rocker on the switch without removing it. It just takes seconds and you can convert your Contura 1&2 to a 5 or 14 with labels that are available nowhere else. Also he will do custom work if you ask him
