Ideas for power rear window switch

When I bought my truck the stock rear glass had already been replaced with a 1 piece pane. I still have the open/close window button on my dash, so I'm looking for ideas on what I could hook up to the empty switch...

That was actually the first (and only) idea I had.

I would rather have something off the wall there. I don't really have a use for the sliding window. And I don't think it would be worth the cost to me honestly. Plus I don't have the room for the motor. (sub and amp boxes back there take up a lot of space).

the rear slider does wonders for backing up at night in confined areas/with a trailer

and really cuts the wind chatter wind driving with the front windows down

Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !

I'm sure it would help, but having the truck for over a year with limo tint and it never really bothering my backing skills (I regularly back up grain and or horse trailers, backing the truck is easy) and putting the rear windows about 1/3 down and the fronts between 1/2 and all the way down my cab is nice and still and brings the outside in without being turbulent.

And again I don't have room for the motor back there anyhow, so I'm sticking with the 1 piece... Plus I like the clean look better.

So it looks like best suggestion so far is air horn. Which will work great because my AUX switches are going to be/are:

1) KC off road light behind grill
2) suggestions?
3) air compressor control for the frame mounted air tank (air impact wrench is awesome for changing tires, not to mention airing up tires)
4) high idle

Backing down the boat ramp with a PWC makes my power window worth a million /limo tint and a short narrow trailer on an angle = invisible even with side bars

but no room is no room


Get up fitters and cover all of those switch options

Already have upfitters. Switch 4 has been in for a long time. 1 is soon to come and 3 will take a little time. Still have no ideas in 2.

Your only problem is this switch has Momentary contacts not maintained. When you hit the switch something comes on and when you let go it turns off. Not like your upfitter switches work. So the only thing I could think of would be train horns.
