Have a link to the other BBAS document? That might help.

I don't think the upfitters go anywhere else than the blunt cuts behind the fuse block. Never heard of any other wiring points.

Are you asking about installing the switches? Or just connecting to existing switches?

This document shows how to install the switches:

Thanks for the reply Bill.

I just installed the relay and am trying to snake the wiring harness that runs from the relay to the back of the upfitter switch bank.

I am able to snake a piece of romex down through the space where the upfitter will be located (next to the TBC) and down under the dash, but I am having a heck of a time trying to get the harness back up through to the switch location.

Along the lines with what Bill posted, someone put together a step by step doc with instructions. It's in the post below:

Thanks Matt. I do have those instructions and they made life very easy. the whole job wasn't bad.

But I cannot understand how the author of those instructions snaked the harness with the block wire connector back up behind the dash and into the slot where the switches are located-it's very tight.

Is there any way to disassemble the dash/cup holder? I had the same issue as the other guy (author of the inst) and cannot get the cup holder off-although I have my doubts that will give me the room I need

Hello guys,
What side are you trying to put the uplifter relay box on ?
My 2006 has it on the passenger side over the glove box
and it's easy to get at. The PDF looks like it being installed
on the driver side. If that is the case I can see why the pain.

Hey Yahiko-

The upfitter relay box is installed on my 2011 F250 on the left side just near the parking brake. I could not snake the harness and connector up to where the switches are located because of lack of space.

Then my nitwit attack came to a sudden end and I removed the charging port between the cup holder and steering column by prying up and out with a small screwdriver and had plenty of room to run the harness and connector.

I'm new to this and haven't figured out how to post pictures-sorry.

Thanks to all for your help!

Go to you user panel and look at the space where the "Albums" is located
It's been a while I think if you click on your albums it will take you to
an upload page. After that you get to save changes and then it will
show the photo with the BB cods below it. i think I have that right.
Then all you have to do is copy the BB code and past it in.
Click the image to open in full size.
It will be code like this with some IMG formatting commands in it
This one is the same as the photo you can see but as a link without the
IMG command tag in it
http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/pi...ctureid=102547
Let me know if I have you totally lost.

If you remove the charging port and then the sync port on the other side you'll see a screw behind each one. remove these two screws then you can pop to whole panel off which really opens things up for you.

Hey Sean,

I followed your instructions-thanks they were very clear. When i paste the pics in, it looks as if it is only pasting code and not the actual photos. maybe i need to reload the page...

I know I'm late on this question, but I read on another forum that the uplifter switches each carries a different amp load. So be careful with what you hook up.

Question Wiring Upfitter switch to trailer lights

I could use some help. I want to wire one of my Upfitter switches to the harness that runs the trailer lights. I want to be able to flash my trailer lights using one of the switches. Looking at some material found here it appears that everything runs through the body light module.

I don't want to screw up that module, has anyone done this and can lend some advice how to accomplish this task? Maybe a Ford tech could give me some help? I would really appreciate any help.
