Cool aux. switch 05 F250 help

Hey fellas, Im proud to announce the new addition to my family, a 2005 f250 4wd 6.0, its hard to miss cuz its friggin yellow!! badass, anyway i love the add on gadgets, and i noticed the stock aux switches, does anyone actually use them? i guess what im getting at is i dont know whether to use them or put aftermarket switches in it, i plan on putting on board air, train horns, ect ect so ill need them, so ill ask you guys your opinion, use the stock switches or fab my own, and if i do use the stock switches, are the switches already wired into the cjb? so all ill have to do is add a fuse and run the power wire to whatever aux item i choose?? anyway if anyone reads this and has horn or any other badass electrical pics they wanna send me i would really love to check them out!! thanks for the help guys

They are called "upfitter" switches. Do a quick search and you will find all sorts of info on them.

I have an 04, so they are not in mine. You will find that you will use them all.

Also, do a quick search using the little search box just below "powerstroke" on Train horns. Lots of people have had threads here.

Have fun with your new "YELLOW" truck! ( I yelled YELLOW cause man those are bright!!)
