    Where are the ends for the upfitter switches? Can't follow the wiring harness that comes out of the switch.

    If you have a GM truck they are stuffed up under the headliner, by the rear drivers pillar if I remember right. Do a search and there are alot of threads about this or see if you can get ahold of Sonjaab he has alot of info on Chevy/GMC trucks.

    Just did a search for you, do one for a thread called Snow Plow Prep all the info that you need is in that thread, but make sure you read the one from sonjaab about the third or fourth response down from the top. Oh and be careful because you can break those clips real easy.

    Good Luck Mike

    I take it you are talking about the switches in an 05 Super Duty?? If so, the ends of the switches are located over behind the fuse panel. I couldn't find mine either, I had to call and ask the dealer. I don't know why they didn't put any info about this in the owners manual...

    The upfitter switches are fused switches mounted into the dash right from the factory. There are 2-30 amp and 2-15 amp switches. This way you don't have that to run your own switches, or at least as many of them. Here is a picture of what they look like. Also this pic has the built in brake control.
