What are the For?

Looking around today, noticed these wires. Next to the master cyilender against the fire wall, with a label that says "Customer access circuts (see body builder book for installation instructions)" Any body know what their for?

They are wires that Ford installed that allows you to run "customer installed" accessories without having to run wires through the firewall. For example...lets say you installed a set of fog lights. You would be able to use the "red" wire to hook up the lights. Attach the switch to the red wire in the cab...attach the lights to the red wire under the hood...and there ya go.

You could run one large wire to an auxillary fuse box inside or outside the cab for add ons. If you have an automatic tranny there is an easy way into the cab. Including the OBS trucks, on the fire wall look next to the master cylinder where the clutch would be.
