Extra toggle switches for us

Ok guys now i know that we have 6 spots for aux switches. in my case i only had 3 left since 1 was used for the canceld clutch switch, 1 for the stock fog lights and 1 for the stock bed inverter.

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.

OP, your install looks awesome, i might use your idea but put in covered flip switches instead.

and if i remember correctly someone also got the stock looking switches under a scion part number and they were significantly cheaper

Those scion ones don't look and function like factory ones. And it requires some trimming to fit them in the stock position, i try to make everything simetrical and look even.

i will be posting wiring diagrams on those FJ Cruiser switches later so if u guys want them just stay tuned for them...

i thought i would be a great idea since we are limited on how many switches, then if u do functional mods like, cargo/bed lights, added fog lights, another inverter and heated mirrors theres realy not much left.

with these i power my remot wire for my sub and a set of 4 USB charging pors i instaled. i will eventualy figure out other things for the last 3...
