Just wondering what you guy's have been using these switches for? I'm looking to put in rear mounted lights for launching a boat in the dark. I just wanted to get some other ideas. It would be interesting to read what you've come up with.

There's a group of four wires to the left of steering column. Those are your upfittter switches. They are already hot. I think the first and second ones are 30 amp,then 15 and 10. Check your manual, I can't remember

Going to be using it for some rear mounted lighting shortly

What kind of air compresser are you installing and where have you installed the compresser? Where's a good place to buy the rear bumper mounted lights?

Preciate it guys, yes it's custom, just got some heavy gauge angle iron from joke depot, grinded it down to the bare metal and metal
Painted it flat black with rustoleum paint. I used a 3.5" angle on each wall of the inside bed, and ran the the long horizontal pieces on those 3.5" pieces. Bolted it all up with cad plated hardware.

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)

ejector seat switches -
all of my nieces and nephews like to yell "shotgun!" and call the front seat when they ride in my truck. when the front seat passenger starts pushing buttons and flipping switches they get relegated to the back and the next kid moves up. they think it's funny at this point.

"hey, what's this switch do"
"don't touch it"
"really, what's it do? <big grin>
"really, don't touch it"
*CLICK*
"YER OUTTA HERE"

funny thing is I installed them last spring with plans to put some back-up lights in but haven't hooked them up to anything yet.
