You may be able to find something at a Radio Shack, or some other electronics supply place.

I use AW direct for some stuff like that, as well as other truck stuff. http://www.awdirect.com/default2.asp?keyword=switch+box

AW has fairly decent ones. I personally like this style though...... http://www.awdirect.com/enclosed-housing-switch-panel-aw-direct-2-switches-9900182/flashers-switch-panels/

If your strobes are able to change pattern on an inside switch, you may want an momentary switch under the dash or even mounted beside your switch panel. http://www.awdirect.com/momentary-switch-panel-for-power-supplies-items-nov469-nov669-ezpanel1/strobe-systems/

Go for (5) switches and seperate your strobes (front/back). You can turn off the front when you get a headache from the light shining back at you.

any competent installer can build you what you want for less that what they charge....

Or you can hit up Craigslist for something... just search Siren, lightbar, firefighter etc... you can find someone close selling something.

I got a local installer to do all my work for me for $150 which is is a good deal IMO

mounted rear backup fog lights
installed 4 corner strobes
moved plow light switch
hard wired my mini fedral bar
and gave me a 6 switch box we split front and rear strobes and over ride switch for the backup fogs

now every thing is nice and clean on a nice pro grade switch box ( came out of a police car )

will load up videos and pics tomorrow

I was gonna do it my self and my last thing was to go to the local shop and see how much they would charge to get my self motivated on saving the money they want

Then the installer walked out and said he can do it on his time off for alot less


the switch box is a Federal sw300 now all i need is tomake a bracket and mount it some where
