    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
