For me main needs are rear view lighting and additional cargo lighting, so I don't need many switches.

On the lower trim models not all the dash switches are utilized. I have been wondering if it will be posible to buy the additional switches and trim and utilize them for accessories?

Forgive me if this is a rookie question, but would it make sense to run air compressor power to one of these switches?
Id run a relay to power the compressor anytime the ignition is in the on position. Being the bronco is push button and I haven't seen any of the wiring, idk how I'd go about that yet.
But yes you could use the switches.

I am pretty certain you can’t run a winch from the auxiliary switches
You can use one as a kill switch with a power interrupt

Yep, you can wire the relay trigger to an aux switch

2) Black light
3) Toaster

5) Lowrider hydraulics
6) Electronic cupholder deployment

What's everyone planning to do with their switches? I can't think of how to utilize 6. Winch, fog lights, ditch lights, driving lights. That leaves 2 more.

On a similar note, anyone have plans for the accessory rail besides a GoPro? Gps? CB radio? Do we know how many power ports are on the top of the dash?
A lot of folks get cellphone/tablet mounts from 67 designs that can hold your device in view while keeping your eyes on the road. Given the USB ports on the dash you can hook up a wireless charger to that device holder and easily pop your device in and out. That's what I'll be doing with my rail.

That sounds cool. How many are you going to do per side?
I was thinking 3 on each side if they are bright enough. Front and rear bumper then one in the center, per side. If I stick with the 2 door. Just trying to figure out if the bronco has a multi circuit like that. If not I could wire a switchback circuit on each side. Blinking circuit takes priority over the "on" circuit of the parking lights.

Is there any info on amp load these can handle? Do they run through a relay or is that something you need to provide?

Also, I'll be running an onboard air compressor through one of the switches.

I am 100 percent on board with hooking up a horse sound horn for one of these but how creative can you get... I am getting the badlands with the high pack. Only thing I would want from the lux is the wireless charging pad and for me that isn’t worth the upgrade. Would it be possible to take a wireless pad, mount it somewhere and wire it to one of the aux switches? Thanks in advance for any feedback.
