Upfitter switch hook-up?

This may be a bad question, but I have no idea how to hook accessories up to my upfitter switches on my '05 PSD. Thanks in advance for all the help, looks like a great site! I have learned a lot in a little amount of time here.

Behind the fuse box, under the drivers side. Remove 4, 10mm bolts and you'll see the wires. While you under there, you could do the high idle mod too.

It is where you hook a couple of wires together and you flip a switch and your truck goes into high idle.

Do they have upfitter switches for the 2004s?

When your under the dash and have the fuse panel down, you locate the P.T.O. harness, take the wire that says pto and hook it up to one of your upfitter switches. (Just a one wire connection)
Then when your done start your truck, set the e brake, and turn on the switch. In a couple of seconds the truck will idle up to 1200 rpms.
Not much good to me, But I had to do

Do you have the cut out for them.
I'm not sure about the 04's, but if you have the space I would say yes

I'm pretty sure you can just buy the switches from the dealer, and then mount them somewhere, they should work w/ the 04, not sure about whether it had a space for them on the dash like the 05/06/07s. I think the Upfitter switches came out w/ the Towcommand system.
