2018 F-250 Power Switches On Front Ceiling.....

What accessories/implements/devices are generally powered by these switches? I do not have my manual handy but believe some of them are 25 amp. and others 40 amp. Thanks....

Lights, dash cams, radar detectors, high idle, etc.

There are six upfitter switches in the 2017+ Super Duty and Raptor. Switches 1-4 are 25A circuits and switches 5-6 are 40A circuits. By moving a jumper in the upfitter relay box you can also choose to make switches 5-6 hot at all times or hot only with the key on.

On my truck, I have wired the following switches:
Switch 1: Front discreet amber LED strobe lights in grille
Switch 2: Rear discreet amber LED strobe lights on headache rack
Switch 3: Rear-facing white LED auxiliary lights integrated into headache rack (these also automatically turn on in reverse)
Switch 4: High-idle for diesel engine
Switch 5: Sends power to bed-mounted transfer tank diesel pump (otherwise anyone could turn the pump on in the bed and pump your diesel into their vehicle)
Switch 6: empty (for now)

I never thought I'd really have use for these switches, but I do. There is also a company online that allows you to custom-print little sticker labels that fit perfectly on the switches so you can see what they are in a neat manner.

RAM offers 5 pushbutton switches and a little nicer way to configure them, but Ford's system works well...aside from the access box on diesel models being pretty tight.
