All your switch needs

Here is a pretty sweet sight I found if you need any kind of light switches and accessories. Like mounts and such.

They are pretty cheap as well, just thought I would give the heads up

how man switches you need Frank? if you like the way i did my center console, i would say that is the most "factory" looking way to install switches....the back of the switches go into the little spot where the air bag switch is.....no need to cut the sub encolsure...

Maurice, I'm not sure where to place switches, haha. I was thinking of one for my CB (when I figure out my antenna mounting location), one for a pair of lights up front, and the other, hmm, maybe some other gizmo I haven't figured out yet...open for neat gizmo ideas.

you can always just put in 2 switches, then later if you need another one go back and put in the 3rd switch.......with my switches, i have 1 On/Off/On (DPDT) and 2 On/Off (SPST).....the On/Off/On switch is used to control the efan (Auto/Off/Forced On), the middle switch is for turning off the wig-wags, and the switch closest to the seat is for turning on all my emergency lights.....

notta problem on the link......

i got my switches and switch mounting rings from www.genuinedealz.com ......they are out of Louisville, KY (where i work).....i saw them on eBay, went to their website, and then just went and picked them up.....you can buy direct from them.....they are a good company to deal with....i recommend them.....

the switch holder/rings are actually 3 seperate pieces that slip together to form a multiple switch panel.....makes it easier to install....that way you know they are all in a line and not one higher than the other....
