What are the 4 toggle switches by the brake controller for?

I am waiting to recieve an owners manual in the mail. I have not figured out what the switches by the brake controller do? Any ideas? Thanks.

They are called uplifter switches. They can power extra goodies for your truck like lights ect...

Is there a attachment point under the hood somewhere to wire into these? I was thinking of adding cab lights to my truck and this would work to activate them?

If your going to add cab lights, just tie into the running lights on the truck. That way you don't have to switch them on.

i use one of mine to run my air compressor at the moment.

taskforce- I could do a search ( and i do) but 99 percent of the time it pulls 1 thread. Not sure what i am doing wrong. I also thumb thru the pages at the bottom of the fourum i am serching and do not see anything. I know some of these are common questions but info does sometime change on them I want the latest greatest info, not last years info. I was out of school before computers, cell phones, ibods, nano's and playstaion was invented. I have one friend that had an atrai game pong i think. Go easy on me, i will figure this out and adapt. My first goal of 2009 is to send my first text message, if that works i may even try to take a picture with the phone on the same day. Custom ring tones may follow the following day.
