    Wired up my backrack a while ago and finally got to take some pics. Wired up my code 3 light and 2 floods. I hid all the wires inside the backrack and used 2 prong connectors for all the lights so i can swap or disconnect them in the off season. I also used a 4 prong trailer connector if i ever want to take the backrack off. Then i redid my switch panel.

    Picked up my plow from my dads shop and brought it home, so i thought id snap a pic.

    2-front strobes
    3-back strobes
    4-empty
    5-amber rotator
    6-back floods

    The monitor is for a color/inferred back up camera.

    ya the lights works pretty well, but usually use the leds and strobes for responding to calls.

    Its not a transmitter, its hard wired. heres the site http://www.pac-audio.com/default.asp

    its the actual panel from the console. If you have the longer overhead console it should of come with one of these blank inserts. you can also order them online. i ordered a couple extra in case i wanted to change it around

    That is a real nice setup. Professional looking.
    FYI if you look around www.thedieselplace.com you will find there is a company that makes the switch panel for that location inscase you arn't into fabricating. :drinkup:
