I really want to use a genuine button. I know it's anal but I hate tacking buttons on the dash when there is a perfectly good blank available. On my VW there was a crowd in Germany that made awesome buttons you could use:

CarStyle4you

They are all designed to sit in the spare switch bays in the centre console. That's the finish I'm after, may be an opportunity to make something for the Jeep community.....

Re: Add button on dash or console for garage door?

Thanks for the links. Looking at my Jeep I only have a 5 gang switch on that location, mind you the 2 outer switches are huge. Wonder if the switch plate has changed in the 2014?

Re: Add button on dash or console for garage door?

I guess it depends on your spec & country.

This is what mine looks like, a Ltd in Aus.

Mine is also an AU Limited, build date 09/07/14.

I think I'll pull it out and get a part number.

Re: Add button on dash or console for garage door?

Hmmm, maybe mine is like yours (that pic was not my actual car) I think that pic was from an Overland.

Edit:, yep, mine is the same as yours:
