    I'm looking to put a triple rocker switch panel in on the right side of the dash where the existing control panel for the rear slider window is. I'd like to have a kill switch for my led bed lights, front lower grill light bar, and LED rock lights. I was wondering for those of you that have something similar, will I need a separate fuse panel for these accessories? and how would I go about wiring them all?

    I put in a switch pro. Super clean install and makes it very easy to add accessories. I’ve got it keyed off ignition so everything turns off when I turn off the truck.

    that looks like a sweet setup, anything in the sub 500 dollar category though .

    I just ran this 9-conductor 18-ga stranded copper wire through the firewall from inside the dash to an aux fuse box. I'm just adding a couple OEM switches to the dash to keep things looking factory but figured it would be useful to have a surplus of channels ready to address as necessary:
