your only choice then is a switch that uses double sided tape or velcro like the switches that PIAA uses. the others, you have to drill holes for the screws. as for pics, sorry. maybe someone else can chime in.

Well, your choices are very limited then. It's either some type of 2-sided tape, mount the switch at the bottom of the dash using an exiting hole, or try to make it look it stock. Personally, I prefer the stock look. My KCs are controlled by a stock foglight switch mounted just above the one that came on my truck.

what year is your truck?? Do you have a ash try or do you have that little cubby hole thing by the air bag switch?? You could hit up a junkyard and get an extra, and drill holes in your current one, or in the junkyard unit.

This is what i'm talking about:

Man....that's exactly what i'm doing too. As soon as I hit the yards and pick up some more switches and pigtails. Looks great!!

If you have the little cubby you could do this. If you want I can get you the directions on how to do it.





No holes were drilled, I just used double sided foam tape to hold it in. I dont think you could mount a single switch with double sided tape i think it would just pull off.

If you dont want to do that I would suggest going to a junkyard and picking up a extra radio bezel/center consol/cubby that you can drill into.
