Ideas on where to put my aux lighting switches.

I need some ideas on where I should put my auxilary light switches. I'm going to have 5 switches all together. I have a 1st gen, so that might change your ideas as to where they should go.

I saw a pic on here of a guy's dash, he had a few switches hooked up to a plate in the space below his aftermarket stereo. I liked that idea but I can't seem to find the picture. If you know where this pic is, post it please.

Thanks

Much like mine, I actually had them mounted inside the tray so you can't see the switch unless you open the coin tray. Easy to do while driving.

It will. I hope. I already have my lights on the roll bar set the way I want. I have to get 4 pairs of small 55W lights that are goung to be mounted underneath. I'm getting custom front/rear winch bumpers. There are going to be 2 lights in the bumper and 4 mounted ontop of it on the front bumper. On the rear, there will be 2 lights mounted in the bumper. I plan on having an optima yellow top and an optima red top when I have my lights and winches all hooked up. I'm also thinking that I'm going to need an oversized alternator. I'm gonna be drawing A LOT of electricity.

I have an 04, this is where I have my switches, there is another beside this one (one does my fog lights & the other does my back up lights). Soon there will be a 3rd for my bed lights inside my topper.
