If you had the upfitter switches you would have 4 auxillary switches to the right of your brake controller.

Here is an example of the upfitter switch kit,
it consists of the switches, the wiring harness, and the relay box:

Its not hard to do, I installed the kit in my truck in about 30 minutes. There is a connector above the steering wheel that is hard to get to, but once you know where to look its not that bad. Also there is a ton on these forums about this topic. Just search and you'll find everything you need.
