Just curious what everyone is hooking up to all those auxiliary switches.

Fog lights. Driving lights X 2 . After that, who knows? Had to build my own back in the day...

I didn't find that thread particularly helpful
People are either hooking them to lights
Or being real silly

Example ??
"1. Heat seeking Missals
2. Passenger Ejection Seat
3. Rear Spike Strip
4. Rocket Boosters
5. Anti-Gravity Heli-mode
6. On demand Espresso Machine"

Nothing that made me say oooh, great idea! I had an idea to hook them up to an amp and subwoofer so I can choose when to blow my ear drums

Mostly exterior lights, but also power to the on-board air compressor.

I'd thought about running the winch too, but I'm not sure if the amperage is right and it wouldn't eliminate the need for a hand controller, so what's the point?

I assume if pod lights and rock lights come from the factory, that will be 2 of them. Then 1 for ARB onboard compressor.

Going to mount my ARB under the passenger seat and wire to "Ejection Seat" switch. See how many curious passengers I get.

Does anyone have experience with aftermarket seat heaters that are installed under the seat cover? I’m thinking of using a switch or two for those. Then other switches for fog, driving, and backup led lights.

??, that would be fun to watch their expression when the compressor cuts on.
When my nephews are big enough to ride up front hoping to give them a good scare. And I am definitely THAT Uncle.

Driver or passenger? 'Cause I can see uses for both, depending on the situation.

What? You don't like my driving? Do me a favor and flip that third switch up there, will'ya? Yeah, it'll give you a softer ride... (the landing may be a little rough though).

I don't have any experience with these but they had good reviews. I'm thinking of going with Katzkins and they have the option to add seat heaters and coolers.

As far as switches right now I'm thinking:
Light bar
Pod lights hood & bumper so 2 switches
Fog lights in the HD bumper
Rear lights
Rock lights

I'm lighting mine up so in case I come across Bigfoot out in the desert my SAS will scare him away. ?

Very interested in how others are using the 6 Aux Switches.

I want them and also would be interested in a modest DIY projects to make those switches fun.

1. $195 for the switches seem like a no brainer to "future proof" the vehicle. Agree?
2. Extra lights are obvious choice, but what else are you doing?
3. Air compressor under the hood would be cool for me, if I could fit it there. Anybody know?
4. Any videos that you can recommend of people do have done cool stuff? I saw a couple of basic videos about how to do the wiring. But I thought I would ask before going down a YouTube rabbit hole.
