Up fitter Switches Uses?

This is my 3rd F series with the up fitter switches, I love having them but have 't thought of anything to use them for. I would like to k ow what others use them for.

I bought mine off the lot and didn't come with the switches. Just got done installing a switch under the dash (wish I had them) for my RDS Auxiliary fuel tank electric pump.

You can buy the set up from Ford and install it yourself.
