Switches in cubby hole

First off, I am not taking credit for finding these switches, and coming up with the idea. The original thread is HERE.

Got my switches installed, and DAMN these babies look good, you can't tell that they are not factory equipment! The fit is awesome! You have to have a center console truck, that has the cubby hole right above the cupholders. A big THANKS to peekok on DieselPlace for finding these switches, and researching which would fit the best. Took about 2 hours to get everything wired up and the switches installed. I orignally ordered all On/Off unlit switch bodies, but I am reording lit bodies and rockers since at night they can't be seen. I am also ordering one momentary on body for my train horns. I ordered the soft rocker actuator, they are a little more money, but I like them alot better. I will keep all the same color since I think it keeps the factory look. Right now I have them hooked to train horn, air compressor, FASS lift pump, and my speaker amp.

I love Waytek, they have some pretty good prices, I usually dump a good 5-700 bucks each time I order though...

I've seen those switches, but never tried them, looks very good in there.

What did you use for the backing Wayne?

No backing, when you put them into the cubby, they are almost an exact fit, the tabs, push down on the top and bottom of each mounting peice. I used a couple screws on the backside to hold the switch panel in, it's solid. I will post up the order list by part #'s if someone wants to duplicate it.

www.waytekwire.com > Products > (Category) Switches > Contura Rocker - HERE
There are minimums order quanities, but they are pretty much inline with what you will need.

3 - Removal Tool

7 - Contura Actuator's (many styles/colors/lit or unlit to choose from)

7 - Contura Switch Bodies (many to choose from, depending on how many terminals, and style of modes you want/need)

5 - Middle Mounting panels

2 - End Mounting panels

That's all you will need for the switch panel. If you don't need or want 7 switches you can buy these blanks to put in.
