We have several threads full of ideas for 3D printed items, or screenshots of something seen online. I thought it might be nice to have a thread that keeps track of options for others to print if they want.

So if others will drop a file, link, and description of anything they have designed and want to share, I'll keep an up-to-date list here. Or, if you don't want to share your files, drop a description if you're willing to print one for others for a fee.

  • @IOwnCalculus has a replacement panel for early TJs with the airbag switch in the console.
    • See here for the file.
    • See here for a pic.

  • @gbirk has a small storage bin for the rear right corner, designed to fit without carpet.
    • See here for the file.
    • See here for an editable version.
    • See here for why to print in PETG, not PLA.

  • @Chase_C has some speaker pods for the front dash.
    • See here for his post and others' feedback.
    • See here for the file.

  • @Queticon made some OEM-style mounts for the factory fog lights.
    • See here for his original post.
    • See here for an updated file.

  • @rasband is working on a custom switch panel.
    • See here for pics.

  • @Sudo created some center caps with the Jeep logo and seven beer-bottle slots.

THis is a great idea with so many discontinued and hard to find parts (y) atleast those of us with no 3D printing capabilities can purchase parts from someone who has it !!!!

I'll throw out my replacement panel for early TJs with the airbag switch in the console. Worth noting that while I designed it around a 0.312" incandescent indicator bulb from BGMicro, they've since closed up shop so a suitable replacement light would need to be sourced to keep the airbag controller happy.

I posted this in another thread, but here is my small storage box for the rear right corner of the Jeep. Deigned to fit without any carpet.

For those us us with guns, here is a gun rest I designed for when I have to dig into the safe and need somewhere to lean a rifle for a minute.

Thanks for the storage box. Going to have to give that one a try. :D

I would love one of these panels.. just the blank panel.. no provisions for lights or switches.. I was going to fab one from plexiglass or some left over kydex. Can you do one with no switch/light? I figured I would just stuff the stock panel under the console so I don't get any idiot lights

I really would not recommend this. The whole reason I started that project was because my airbag switch was failing, and hitting bumps on the road was enough to cause it to intermittently switch off the passenger airbag. You wouldn't see or know about that if your airbag switch is hidden. Mine no longer has any way to toggle the airbag off, but the indicator light is still necessary both to keep the airbag computer happy, and to alert you if something is not as it should be.

Still prototyping, but here's a new switch panel I've been designing and refining.

A 2 piece design that let's you get to the wiring w/o taking off the whole center bezel would be nice. I built a similar thing out of sheet metal with a screw on front plate, but a 3d printed piece would do well I would think. (Obviously you have to take off the center bezel to do the initial install.)

That's a great idea!
