Upfitter Switch Install on my 2000

Ok, I have a 2000 F350 CC that I installed a 2007 Lariat interior in. I have the Upfitter switches and the harness that plugs directly into the back of them, but the wires are cut about 8" away from the back where the harness is. Meaning I don't have the factory relay box or anything. I don't see the point in buying that harness because it won't plug into my 2000 fuse block, anyways. I am doing my Backup Camera install this weekend into my AppRadio and am wanting to hook it up with a bypass on the E-brake and to one of the upfitter switches. Is there anyway I can make a homemade harness for those four upfitters? I've researched the crap out of this and can't seem to come up with a direct answer. It doesn't seem that it would be that big of a deal, just wire, relays, fuses, and some connectors to splice into some other wiring. I will probably run a wire with an inline fuse directly to the batter for constant power. I would REALLY appreciate any and all help! Thanks and God Bless!

I love it! Making phone calls is easy and, IMO, it is the cleanest looking aftermarket unit out there. Now, if I can only get this Upfitter Switch issue resolved...

Anyone? I basically want to make my own harness. I might break down and buy the whole kit, even though I don't need another set of switches... I'll be selling my in dash OEM Brake Controller, too...

Well, I broke down and bought the Upfitter kit so I have everything now. I just need to figure out how to wire up the harness at the fuse panel. My truck originally was an XL so a lot of the fuse slots don't have the fuses or connectors for that matter. Can I still do the "harness pin switch" like I saw on someones write up? Or should I power them directly off the battery through an in line fuse? TIA
