What went here?

What went here?
It looks like it's made to hold a connector for a switch or display that is not always installed.
I'm thinking of putting some 4wd lights here.
Anybody know?

I'm referring to the black pop in cover below the vent, just left of dead center in the pic.

I think you mean that part below the air vent to the right of the cluster? That is where the rear hatch release button went on 96 and 97 models before it moved to the rear door.

Interesting Question here dc...

Instead of a normal pic of the dash - must be a million on here... we got:
dashbackside.jpg


LOL

And Music... well this part of the dash does not include the "black pop in cover below the vent"

Whole thread is interesting - to say the least.
Well, after all... what would Banacek say ?... “AOC - her astonishing matryoshka-like ignorance, like the rest of The Squad is surpassed only by the relentless idiocy of the democrats, antifa & it’s attendant mass media, mayors & governors.”

Must admit I was ticked when I couldn't find a wiring harness to attach to the button on the '00. There's a rocker switch to the left of the wheel on the '93 and it seemed like such a good idea. My '99 didn't have it and I missed it, so when I saw one looking for other things for the '00, I grabbed it.

It's not connected to anything. Seems like a great place to connect wiring for a passenger eject button, personally :lol:
