    This is how I did it on a dodge. Don't know if this will fit your application.

    troy fire/police center console used decomisiond unit. 2 face plates for 2 sw300 federal signal switch box's for all my lights and options. then 1 face plate for my uniden cb radio. then 1 face plate for my pa300 federal signal pa/horn/noise box to the 100watt speaker. and 1 filler plate.

    all of this fed by 1/0 battery/welding cable from battery. then threw 150amp resetable cirkit breaker. and then bolted to a power dist block. pic of 25ft tape to show how big the dist block is.

    got a lot of wiring / cirkit breaker / power dist block stuff from www.dellcity.com good service and prices. the rest was ebay for some smokin deals.

    all the switches feed my streethawk bar and a few extra lights on the truck.

    I retro fitted the 05+ upfitter switches in my truck, the nice thing about them is there actually is an open spot on the fuse box that they can plug into.. Let me snap a pic tomorrow morning of them in the truck...

    Scoot,

    Digikey.com has the switches digikey part number 432-1088-ND. Also do a search for either Contura II sealed rocker switches or Carling tech. Hope this helps you out. I agree that stroker has a cool setup.

    The switch were bought from a guy in Alaska. He sells them as a side business and has the best prices BY FAR and ships fast. I got my switches on the 3rd day from the day they were sent USPS! The only wierd part is you have to email him and he will send you all the order info and a link to his webshots page with a pic of all the switches. roan65@yahoo.com MODS, please do not remove the email addy, there is no other way to get ahold of Shane (the switch guy).
