    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
    [​IMG]

    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.
    [​IMG]
    here is the link if u want to get some
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...ewitem=&sspagename=STRK:MEWAX:IT#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.
    [​IMG]

    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.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Before look

    [​IMG]

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

    [​IMG]

    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...
