How to tap into/use Upfitters?

First off I'm not a wiring guy, but I just need a little help/explanation. I want to run an amp remote wire to a Upfitter switch, but not sure how to tap into or where to connect wires to these switches. Again might be a dumb question, so sorry in advance. Thanks!!

Trucks a 09 XLT with Upfitters installed from factory.

Cool Instructions

First, go to this page:

https://www.fleet.ford.com/truckbbas/topics/f-sd.html

...and download Bulletin Q-117R1. This instruction has 2 great pictures that show you where the wires are and identify which color belongs to which switch and how many amps it supplies. You then hook the positive side of your device to the wire you decide to use and the negative side of your device to a good ground. When you turn the switch on (only with the ignition on), your device will come on. Hope this helps...

Regards... Jim D
