    Does anyone know a switch that fits in the blanks below the radio? I know the carling switches are a tad too long for those spots, just looking for something that's clean looking. thanks

    Color me silly perhaps, but I'm assuming that those switch blanks below the radio are of some 'standard' size or another. Does anyone know what that size actually is? They look wider and shorter than the ones I'm used to seeing.

    i am selling the truck, but if no one buys my bed lights or heated mirrors i'll sell them with the truck and move the switches to that location

    Check the Firgelli web site. I bought the switch for my linear actuator there. Switch fits with some minor trimming of the truck's panel. Not the cheapest switches, but cheaper then the Carlings I think.

    ^ that's the same size switch as a carling which won't fit unless you take a dremel to the opening

    Carling switch with aftermarket cover....fits great with a little trimming on the inside

    Also removed the dimmer switch and put a switch in its place, perfect fit

    Those are sick!! I'm constantly looking for ideas for my Zombie Response Unit-esque build, and that light switch is awesome. Where did you get it?

    I can confirm that ARB switches do not fit. Trimming is needed.

    There are a ton in their novelty section

    Just remember that this is just the top of the switch, you have to also purchase a carling switch.
