You can get the whole kit on ebay for $150 or check with your dealer, they may beable to beat that price, I know mine was able to. Im in the process of adding them to my truck. I dont have a vent though, I had the dinky coin holder thing there.

Thomas21, you can wire anything you want into those switches such as extra fog lights, high idle, gps, radar detector...ect. Anything that can be hardwired can be put on one of those switches if you want. From the factory they are installed, but all the wires you need to tie into to use the switches are under your hood/dash.

I actually just wired a set of heated wiper blades and heated arms to my AUX4 switch and it worked like a charm. Much better than using the 12v 15amp switch they had supplied with the kit.

Keep in mind that each switch is rated for a different amp load.

Here's a question kinda on topic, I have a small cubby space below the trailer brake controller, and was wondering if a secondary switch panel can be put in there?
