Question Need Help Finding Something...

I am very soon going to be adding some strobe lights, reverse beeper (on a switch for plowing), other lights, etc. to my truck. I need to hook them up to toggle switches. I don't really want to drill into the dash so I wanted to buy a box that has all the switches and wiring for a more clean and professional look.

So, I went around to about 5 places today and no one has one. I found one online at Jeg's but with the shipping and the high price it is not really what I want. Here is the link so you kind of know what I am looking for: http://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/store...58752_-1_10409

Does anyone know where I can get one at a reasonable cost? Jim (Blackstock): are you able to get something like this? If so, PM me a price.

It doesn't need to be rated for high amperage because the strobe lights are only fused at 5 amps and any high amp things will be on relays anyways.

Any help or leads would be great.

-Matt

This place would fall apart without me Matt! I'm gonna go check Vehicle venture in Windsor for you on Monday. All they carry is truck parts so I should be able to find you one there

We have lots of them available. Popular for the stockers and coppers. Painless as Jegs shows has the most selection. Also popular (and less $) is Moroso. You can get them basic like this Click the image to open in full size. or lighted/fused . You might want to consider the lighted version cause after a long tiring night of plowing you'll look silly with the blue through Timmy's drive through

Is that an enclosed box Jim? I think I would prefer the lit switches. Do you have a picture of it?

I leave my blue light on the whole time I am plowing...even when I am IN Tim's drinking coffee. I LOVE strobes!

Ignited Performane makes LED illuminted switches that you buy in different colours and then mount in their face plates. More for the tuner crowd but a good concept

OK, thanks Jim. I will have to talk to my Dad. He is the one paying for this. Business expense.
