For some reason it never occurred to me to put switches there. I have the off-road package complete with downhill-assist, and the power outlet in the truck bed, so all my stock push-button switches are in use. Eventually I plan on getting more lights (a set of fog and extra driving lights) and will need to put those switches somewhere. I like this set up! Nicely done!

I was just thinking, how cool it'd be if you could use a touchscreen stereo HU to control the lighting. It might not be as handy, but if there was an on-screen button for lighting control always present on the LCD screen, then you could have as many lights as you wanted and would never have to clutter up the dash with switches. I can only dream...

Looks great man. My dash is filled with ATRAC and VSC buttons so I was looking for a way to mount extra switched in case I needed them in the future.

Wow that looks sick! good idea on having a switch to turn off the amp when the truck is off that alone will save you some headache, use the first switch to turn on and off the flux capacitor. lol nah but nice clean install, looks OEM

Looks good, but you are missing some lights on your dash.

Edit: can we see the colorado 3rd light, that is a cool mod.

There isnt any room, theres a little plastic bar that goes back there but if u cut it just right you will have all the room in the world for the switches and wiring.

OP (if you're still around) - Just curious... What is that small black square box with a gray square button on the right side of this panel?

BTW - Clean install on those switches & thanks for the part numbers of the others!
