Icon5 Aux switch panel on the roof

Yay or nay? Should i build a switch panel into the roof of my truck? The cab is not complete, i had to pull a bunch of stuff to make room for the cab cage, so i am working on a way to finish and i thought being able to reach up and flip a bunch of switch would be cool. This is what i am working with. This is what im thinking.

Overheads are cool looking but...............only put in controls that you do not need when driving, too hard to "hit" the right switch when bouncing around, and very easy to "hit" the wrong switch.

Driving switches would best just below lower windshield level and as close to steering wheel as practical, this limits "eyes off the road" and "hands off the wheel" time.

I am 6' 3" for me reaching the roof is a lot faster and easier. I have the seats mounted back a little bit further in the cab so I have the leg room I need but sense I have 4 point harness instead of seatbelts reaching the dash is a little different. That is the main reason I thought about putting the panel on the roof.
