Made my own version of upfitters.

Well my truck being a 99-04 style interior, upfitters arent exactly in the cards so i decided i wanted to add some switches but then i realized that boy it will be a pain in the arse to have to take the dash off everytime i want to add something to the dash. And i cant stand the look of the guys that have switches every which where on the dash so i decided to preinstall and prewire switches for the clean look that i prefer.

I ran the wires down to the fuse box area and labeled them all so i can remember what wires go to which so all i have to do is splice the new accessory in and im in business. Overall i like them so far. Figured id throw them up there maybe spark some ideas.

Im still trying to figure out an easy way of labeling them in a clean way. Oh yea the led is a glow plug indicator light because of the placement behind the dash wouldnt have allowed another switch.

I'm sure now that they are there you are already trying to figure out what you can hook up to them

I bought 5 green led ones that look exactly like that and plan on doing something similar, not sure where I'm mounting mine

Yea i have tons of crap on my truck that is wired every which way that i spent part of this weekend rewiring now that its hinesight its easier to wire things better. Yea they are green ones, i wish they were amber because my next project is converting all my green interior lights to amber but oh well. Idk if you have ESOF 4x4 or not but you could mount it where i did.

I agree lol. I think I will get some as I don't *think* I'll be needing more than 4-5.

They look too big to have as many as you do anyway.

I also see your shift knob is in a different position every time you post an interior shot, yeah I notice weird things... I assume it's broke. Like almost every zf6 knob I've seen? If you ever come accross a source for new ones let me know I've got a cheapo one and I'm tired of explaining where the gears are

Ehh i could probably have about 2 rows of 4 where they are now, theyd look nice but a pack of ten online was like 8 bucks so ehh its whatever

But yea it was broke since i got it, i had one of those aftermarket autozone knobs on it but like typical autozone quality it stayed on just as good as the broken stock one. No one else drives my truck so its no big deal to me, ive pondered ideas to make it tighter but they really need a threaded knob. these press fit knobs never last long

At least yours is still bearable I search the junkyards every time I'm there. Every one I find is broken. Mine was so bad it rattled around just sitting there idling
