Upfitter Switches

Does anybody have any recommendations for the upfitter switches? I'm not planning on putting on a winch or off-road lights. The switches came on my truck and so far all they do it decorate my dash???

One can be hooked up to the PTO control wire and give you a high idle switch (try searching on here for info on it)! I have one wire to some chicken lights under my front bumper and to lights that will be going under my rockers. Just a couple ideas.

You could hook up work lights for the bed. Or you could add part time lockers to your front and rear diff and hook the activation switch through the upfitter switch. Also you could hook up a dedicated work lights to your trailer or trailers that you can activate from your upfitter switch, for the purpose of loading at night or backing the trailer at night.

Is there any way to convert the upfitter switch to a 3-way switch? Or replace the switch with a 3-way? Benefit to doing this is so that I can put in 08+ mirrors on the truck and wire the switches to power fold and telescope using the switches and leave everything on the driver side door stock (clean look)

Just depends on how you setup the relay. I just did the PTO/BCS setup so I have high-idle control now on Aux 3. #1 controls a Rigid 30" LED bar and #2 controls 4 rigid 8" LED bars up front. #4 are the rear LEDs.

Ran out of switches and need to wire something up for the compressor en route.
