Probably so you don't have 'hot' 12VDC at the door jamb connection point with the doors off. The dash/console mounted switches at least keep the power in the cab vs. an area that's going to see water/mud etc. when the doors are removed.Serious question I've had since first seeing the interior:
What's the point of having the window/lock switches on the inside of the vehicle? If you take the doors off, you don't need window switches or door locks, anyway. To me, that's space on the middle console that is just wasted when you take the doors off. Seems like it could be utilized better if you just leave the switches on the door panels. Is the weight savings really that much?
Curious what would you use them for?Sure hope the MOLLE seatbacks are an ala carte option. That's such a good idea and would be so useful.
I don't particularly like them on my pack either just because It drives me nuts having stuff smacking me in the side / jangling while I hike, but MOLLE on seatbacks would be awesome for holsters / smaller packs / storage I think. Mostly small pack storage; I like the idea of a compartmentalized / organized seatback "map pocket" better than the "cavernous black hole of who-knows-what that the regular map pockets end up like (at least if our Explorer is any indication!)Curious what would you use them for?
There's been some sort of molle straps on ever hiking pack I've ever had and I rarely use them. I'd rather tuck things away than have them dangling off the back of the seats.
