Whats the switch under the steering wheel?

Me and a friend were looking through this truck and he decided to look into it tomorrow. He asked one of the sales guy what the switch under the steering wheel was but they didn't know... Anyone have an idea what that switch is???

Hard telling with all the aftermarket stuff it has. Maybe its a switch for the electric fan. You dont see many people taking the fan off these and putting an electric on like they did.

Check to see if it's studded. Look on the drivers side of the motor around the 3rd piston back from the front. Or between the air filter and brake booster. Check the coolant resivor before and after a drive to see if the coolant level stays the same. If not I would walk away.

I would be more worried about why the passenger rear door is a different shade of color. I thought it was just the light but it looks the same from the front and rear views. Be careful, I have been there and bought the highly modified truck and would never do it again unless I was getting it from a friend. Just my opnion.
