I will add brush guard lights and i did a 3rd brake light mod using a chevy colorado 3rd brake light so i have cargo lights now.

so this is what my switch panel looks like now


that last spot will be used for a in cab inverter that i will add eventualy so that spot already is used.

Now i wanted to have more switches just in case i would add something else i would wana control with a on/off switch.

so here is the switch i used.

here is the link if u want to get some
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...T#ht_500wt_956

its up to your discretion if you use 3, 4, 5 or 6. I used 5.

hers is the wiring i did for them to work.


now i designed this layout to use these switches using the 12vdc source as the cig lighter to the switch and from the switch to activate a relay that way there is no over load on the wiring and no blown fuses.

this is how my switches look.





Before look



and now this is how it looks fully installed in the truck.



from left to right i will dedicate each switch a number 1,2,3,4,5.

so far 1,2 and 3 are not used yet but 4 is used to power 4 5vdc USB charging ports i have installed and switch 5 is used as a on/off switch for my sub amp.

I take my lunch to work and i eat in my truck while watching a movie or a episode of something and i dint want the amp on while the truck is off for any period of times.

so i hope this helps anybody out with adding switches to there trucks.

you did a good job!

These are the Cherry KG series switches I mentioned before. I had to widen the switch openings a bit, as with the carling switches. I also trimmed the top and bottoms of the bezels as they were more rounded and overhung a bit.

Thats how you install them. I ended up adding a panel instead.



It looks really natural with the dash, and the black and grey contrast is consistent.
