upfitter switch harness

I know there are tons of threads on this but I can't find what I need. I bought some 2008 upfitter switches with harness; I got the switches in and plugged in but I cannot find the plug for the connector on the harness.I found the plug to the right of the steering column at about the same height of the radio, but the plug on the harness I have will not fit in this connector. I cannot find another one in there. Any ideas? Thanks BTW I have searched for a while and cant find anything that helps.

Well it turns out the plug I found was the right plug but it has a piece that is in the connector on the truck. The piece is plastic and as far as I can tell has no purpose whatsoever. I read a ton of threads on upfitter switches and I don't recall reading about this fake plug cover thing. It was a pretty easy install after I figured this out, the plug that everyone said is so hard to get to isn't too bad, like I said though it has a fake cover thing on it. If you are adding upfitter switches I hope this helps. It would of helped me save an hour or so, but I did feel kinda stupid after I figured it out.

Yeah, they work really well got some reverse lights hooked up to them last night. I don't know why all these trucks didn't come from the factory with the upfitter switches.

I hear ya! My truck didn't come with them either. I just put some in mine about 2 weeks ago. This should be a must in every SD.

How much did the upfitter switch run you? And is the harness necessary?

the harness has a fuse box so yes it's needed

I paid less just look around 2008 2009 Ford Super Duty Factory Upfitter Switch Kit | eBay but with 86 sold maybe this is the going rate for an 08 ?

they should be standard in every truck. I wish there were more though. I have all 4 of mine used up, and would like another 2 since I am not willing to put holes in my dash. You have to get the harness and fuse block with the switches to make it all work correctly and be plug and play.

Yes the harness makes wiring anything up as easy as grounding one side out and running a wire to the harness and your done. I been noticing trucks here with two or three sets of upfitter switches, how do they wire those up to work the same? There is only one plug under the dash, or do they just use them as a normal toggle switch?
