    Recommend me a good switch box. I have a led bar, 4 lights (2 in grill & 2 on backrack), 4 corner strobe kit and 2 cat lights. Would prefer the switches to be pre-wired from factory.

    I've seen some on ebay, but it gets to be overwhelming.:dizzy:

    Unless you are using some sort of serial communication equipment, any switchbox will work with any brand of lights. The question you need to answer is how do you want everything controlled? Do you want one switch for rear warning and one switch for front warning, or do you want a switch for each lighting location? Another important question is where do you want to mount the switches? What brand and model of Lightbar do you have?

    Thanks for the support.

    Any competent supplier will be able to pre-wire the switch box so all you need to do is hook it up..label it and set it all up to do what you want. All you need is a breakdown of the system.

    If they won't, find a new supplier...IMO...it's very easy to do.

    If all you want is switches you don;t even need a switch box per-say all you need is the switches......All a box gives you is the slider to turn them all on with a slide....
