A clean switch install was a key requirement for us as we started adding some LED light pods to our truck. These will be used with the setup shown in F150 Behind-the-Grill Offroad LED Lights. There are plenty of universal things on the market, but most of them were bulky and looked kind of tacky. We really liked the ford raptor OEM switches, but those only came in a set of 4, which we felt would not be quite enough. Then after searching other options, the perfect solution presented itself in a 2017 F250. There is an option that others have done that also uses the upfitter relay box, but that ends up being a bit pricey, and the relays max out at 30A.
