I want to put a custom switch panel in my truck but don't know where to put it. Any suggestions??? I want to be able to put a 10 switches on it to run off-road lights, emergency warning lights, and a siren. (Im on the fire department in my home town if anybody was wondering why i would need to run lights and siren) Keep in mind i already have a CB radio mounted in the bottom cubby hole under my cigarette lighter plugs and i have a counsole in the middle. Let me know what anybody can come up with. Any help would be greatly appriciated.

Thanks,
Dwayne

Is there any vendors on the Vendors page that sells switches cheap? If not is there some site out there that sell switches CHEAP and that sell big lots of them like 25 or 50 at a time or something to that affect?

Thanks,
Dwayne

there is the consoule that touches the dash or teh one that is also the seat. you have the one that touches the dash I bet. I know my buddys gasser we insatlled the a sweet switch panel under the arm rest lid, then added more next to the cup holders also there is a good place right above the cup holders in that usless hole next to the cig lighter

thats one good point of them being modular. ive changed switch type and position a few times now. my current setup from left to right, switch 1 is a double pole-double throw momentary on no lite red touch pad for air horn, up actuates air solenoid to blow horn down actuates air solenoid on air tank to purge condensation.

switch 2 is single pole single throw amber lite on, for air compressor.

switch 3 is sigle pole single throw green lite on for auxillary bed lite under hard cover roll top.

switch 4 is double pole double throw on,on both green lites for nav radio backup cameras, up for truck down for fifth wheel.

switch 5 is single pole single throw red lite on for timed auxillary fuel tank fill to truck tank,

switch 6 is single pole single throw momentary on red switchpad for 5 min timed pump start diesel.

switch 7 is single pole single throw for dsp2 auxillary tune efi live.

I got the same thing. Got it from SuperDiesel a couple years ago. Very nice piece. Countered to follow the lines of the console. I have no idea if he still sells them; could always pm him and see?

I have 5 lighted on-off toggle switches, my Extreme 3 way toggle, and a couple of LEDs in it. Nice that I can lock the console when I don't want inquiring minds to be wondering what do all those switches do.
