Auxiliary switches - where to put them

I'm looking to add some lights and accessories to my 2009 Ranger and will probably end up with half a dozen switches. There don't seem to be a lot of options for a switch panel, so what did you come up with? Post pics if you got them. Thanks.

I put some switches on the overhead console.
Did the wiring harness before installing the console.
Clean and out of the way.
There is always the cubby under the radio to mount a plate to.

Custom Aluminum Plate I had made up to fit over the cubby hole.

This might be the answer. It is the simplest and if I ever sell the truck this one requires the least "damage" to the dash.
