    I am looking for some ideas or pictures of how to set up my switchs and all the fun stuff that goes on the inside of the cab. I will have a cb, strobe light on top hardwired rear lights front lights fog lights salt spreader and a few extra acc plug ins. It is going in a 91 f-250 reg cab. I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of how they have it set up. I am also looking for a main switch box with 5 or 6 light up toggle switchs just something basic. any help would be great

    Here is a link to a thread with pictures of the setup in one of my trucks.


    The switch box I'm sure is what you're most interested in and that came from Sirennet. It took forever to get so I'd suggest getting it from somewhere else but it is a Lion Hart (sp?) brand 6 switch box with 5 of the switches being 20 amps and one 40 amp.

    Got the same switch box as Pelican for all the Fire Dept. lighting on my truck. Not to pricey and works great.

    Got this from Whelen for use with their strobe bar. It switches 30 amp relays under the dash, so the switches are small, low current.

    This is what I have in my 2003 Ford F-250 Superduty. It is a whelen pcc-s9 lightbar control. It has a 3 position pursuit switch and 5 push button switches, with 1 momentary switch, used for changing from hi to low power. I use it to run my whelen edge 9000 light bar. I have hide aways in the front and rear of my truck, and one switch is used for my work lights on the back of my light bar. I got the switch box on Ebay for about $25. they sell new for about $200. It was very easy to hook up. Let me know if you have anymore questions. Well I tried to attatch a picture, but it says the file is to big. Email me and I will send you pictures if you want.

    I always try to get factory switches for options i dont have and wire em to that. I like a more factory look. Just me though and sometimes its not possible to do it with the vehical or the amount of switches. Or i try to hide em.

    Check out Jegs and summit or Galls. Most racing switch pannels are pretty nice but might be kinda pricey
