where did you mount the projector headlamp switch in your truck?

If you have projector headlamps where did you mount the projector headlamp switch in your truck? My wife and I are trying to find a spot for them along with the switches for my speed stuff:). I don't like that I would have to surface mount the switch and leave an exposed wire.

Also to those who didn't use the switch and spliced into the parking lamp circuit did you get any slack from other motorist when you had them on?


Thanks!

My wife and I both like them better than the stocks. Check out the other post next to this one regarding the wrong projectors. I put a link to my yahoo pic site that shows them installed.

I have yet to figure out a way to mount the switch. Not sure about yours but mine came with the switch already attached. Would've been easier if it came separate.

Maybe I missed something. Why can't they just use the existing headlight switch?

Because IMHO they are too bright for normal road use when traffic is coming towards you. So if you wire them to your parking lights I'm willing to bet I'll get a few fingers thrown my way.
