    Default Over head switches

    With the addition of my new front bumper to the rig, I will be needing some switches. Initially for the 4 to 5 KC lights I'll be mounting on the bumper, but also for other to be added components in the future.

    My plan (no telling how long) is to add front and rear air lockers. I'd like to have winch control from inside the rig. Electric fan override, all in all I think I counted 8 switches!!!

    I've been searching the Internet for something nice that I could mount on the headliner in the center between the front seats.

    Nothing.

    I've seen the writeup with the plastic box that you cut up and stick up there but I was hoping for something that looked more factory.

    I'm considering a metal substructure and a fiberglass cover painted gray to match the interior but I'd really rather not do all that work. lol

    Anyway does anyone have a source or better idea?

    Default Switch Idea

    For your Lights Check out Finch Box. Its a Relay box that you can remote mount. Or check this out. http://www.pilotautomotive.com/Catal...D=1068&PCID=27
    For a in-cab winch controller i would make my own Super easy.

    Yep your's was the one I remembered seeing. I don't want mine facing out, or that low. Eventually I'm going to put a scanner right where you have your switch box. I want something that would be on the roof but more to the middle and the switches would be parallel with the roof. Ahhh Ok thats a fitch box. I was looking for a finch box, and all I could find were birds. lol
