aux switches

Hey, 08 f250 lariet, and I'm wondering if anyone had put in more switches in the cab, and if so where and any pic? I'm going to be using up all my upfitter switches and wouldn't mind having more for other stuff, any ideas?

alright sweet.. See I used a aux switch for my air compressor, and one for the train horn, but I might get a push button and use that for my horn, how are you guys wiring up the switches? Straight from the battery? or fuse panel?

does that work with the remote? So if the switch is on, and you lock your doors or something, the train horn blows? How did you wire it up, i'm interested, and what kind of horns do you have?

Lol yes it does honk the train horn if i leave the switch on (given myself a heart attack the first few times hahahah, but now i sneak attack people hahaha)

ill find the wiring diagram they sent me. I have a kit from Hornblasters(dot)com it was simple and very foward hardest part was mounting the 4 trumpets.

Awesome, I would love to do that... I'm guessing you have the shockers? Thats what I have.. And where did you get the switch? Thats a cool spot for it too! Looks just like a simple toggle switch with a metal toggle from a part store

Yea I also have the shockers, 5 gal tank at 200 psi. I didn't buy the kit from hornblasters, just the horns. Mounting was a pain, but I found a nice spot for mine under the rear cab driver side door. and mounted the compressor and tank in the bed. seems to be easy to wire up
