Auxillary light wiring - where to put the switch without ruining the dash?

Recommended Posts

I've got a set of LED flood lights that I'm going to mount up front on either side of the license plate. I already have the wiring mostly figured out, but I'm trying to decide how to mount the switch without having to drill a 5/8" hole in the dashboard. Are there any stick-on switches that can handle enough amperage for this application? Also preferably one that doesn't have a vampire light on it, because I'll be wiring it all straight to the battery.

There's options for mounting a switch other than drilling and mounting to the dash.  Does your truck have the pull out ash tray?  If so, you can mount it in there and it's hidden.  You can drill a small hole in the back of the "pocket" below the AC controls and mount the switch to a small piece of plastic cut to fit in the opening.  You can also remove the 12v power outlet (cigarette lighter outlet) in the dash and mount it there.
