    You can get the switches from Ford. The harness or some of it should be under the dash (I think).

    I bought a 12 in January and I had the same issue you do. you can easily add the upfitter switches. I searched E bay and they are on their, but at the time my ford dealer was only 20 dollars more and he had them the next day. The kit is the four switches and the wiring harness. My ford dealer provided me with instructions to install. Their is a lot of good info on the internet if you search for it, was really helpful. The install is really easy and took me about an hour, but I did it in feburary. hardest part is getting your body in position to make the connections and feed the harness.

    I just got a 2011 f350 and added " Hideaway Strobes" in the headlights and Tail lights. easy install if you got basic tools and a bit of know how. they are nice and clean and you can get them in amber. I also put the up lifter switches in as well, easy install just make sure that you get the relay box with your wiring, it doesn't all come in one kit, at least mine didn't but I got ford to pay for the switches and all the wiring when I got the truck. I got my lights from Fleet Farm. they are "Wolo" lights. the kit I got comes with 4 lights but you can get them with 6, also can get them in LED as well.

    This is what I built for my 11 f350. I got about $500.00 in materials and about 2 weeks of time but it looks nice on the truck.
