So long story short I was "right time, right place" and snatched up an abandoned BB when randomly stopping by to check out the demo BL. Oopsie :sneaky:!
I'm keeping my order for 2D BD, you know, for when it might get built someday, in the meantime I fully intend to enjoy this 4D. That all said, the only option it came with was the tow package. Poking around under the hood we noticed it's pre-wired for what I can only assume to be the overhead aux switch panel...but I don't have one. Any ideas whether it could be bought separately? I don't see it in the ever changing accessories catalog, and haven't seen a parts manual where I could look it up. Thoughts?

The biggest factor is if the harness going up to and coming back from the overhead console is there. This will require the overhead console be removed to check. I'm going to assume the relays are in the fuse box since non-trailer tow vehicles have trailer tow fuses installed from the factory.

Another forum member stated they took delivery of their bronco without the switches, and the leads were still present in the engine bay, which lends credence to the idea that everything is there except the switch housing.

More invest is needed. Let us know what you find!

I added them to my Super Duty and everything was there. Not sure about Bronco but I assume it’s there

Should be able to add them from the build and price as an option. Call your dealer and have them add them.

Did your Super Duty switch assembly looked like this?

I tried to do an image search for the part number that @flip posted, but it’s so new, there were no images available. The Super Duty switch assembly showed up during the same search, though, so I’m assuming the two switch assemblies might be similar even though the part numbers and actual dimensions and features are probably different.

What’s the difference, if any, between the Super Duty part and the Bronco part that you posted earlier? They both seem to have the same secondary number in the full part number (highlighted), and they physically look the same? The plug location, maybe (right side for Super Duty and left side for Bronco)?
