Extra Auxiliary Switches / Uplifter switch

Has anybody added any extra aux switches if so where at? Already used the 4 up

Trying to avoid drilling & thought maybe the factory ones would fit elsewhere into that void to the left of the trailer brake controller?

Any idea's?

#1 solenoids to k5la.
#2 compressors on / off
#3 high idle
#4 wch electric signal bells


Here were the spots I was thinking off. Underneath the steering wheel with some giant rocker ones to fill the 4 indents. But thinking they may be pretty hard to see.

Or beneath the headlights. Has anyone found any nice toggle switch panels?

Its the signal bell which you hear at most railroad crossings now. Want to add a light bar with the other switch.

Video of the signal bell is in sig.

i like the loc under the steering wheel, the four indents, would look pretty cool. Get the black toggles, the flat kind, and they make them with small lights, that should help u see them at night. BUt ur other spot below the headlight switch is also another good spot. Good luck with ur adventure and be sure to post a right up of it

Why do you need a switch for high idle? I'm been trying to decide what, if anything I'd do with the switches.

There was a post on here a while ago of someone using switches out of an F-650, I believe it nearly doubled the number of switches.

Also, not to steal away from the railway crossing scheme (Awsome) here is another one that cracks me up ...
