    I don’t know about anyone else but I get nervous drilling holes in the dash or console to mount switches. Not only drilling the holes but then getting my hands up under the dash through all the wires and vacuum lines. I am always concerned about pulling something apart. I came up with this approach seem to works well for me for about $10 in parts.

    Very nice. What kind of lights are those? And what did you have to do to get that mounting configuration? I have the same dump body and I cannot figure out a good mounting system that won't get hurt when I'm dumping gravel out the back.

    Do you have them mounted in the front? Great idea on the switch mount.

    I saw that chain saw and thought this was going to be entertaining!!!

    I like the switches with the brackets that screw to the bottom of the dash.

    I thought that about the chainsaw too.

    thats a great idea for the switches, i just got a new truck and am really not liking the idea of holes in the dash...where did you route that wire to the outside? and did you just use multi-conductor wire and seperate it off for each light or is that some type of conduit?

    Get more pics of that truck on here (unless they already are in which case I have most likely seen them)!
