next to the shifter can be dicey if you need depth for your swithes and wiring.
i have a thread here somewhere but here is a few pic/
I had to put spacers on my switches to raise them up to fit in the shifter.
if it just 2 switches I might try the cubby in FRONT OF the shifter. i have one in there....in the top that I use to turn my nav on and off.
if you want them to show making a panel for that cubby should be easy compared to the shifter. if i could do it over i would use that cubby in front of the shifter
here is my one switch in the cubby in front of the shifter. there is dwef room for 2 and the wiring has a ton of space.
