Just curious what everyone is using their up-fitter switches for? Currently, mine are planned for:

1. Front Rigid Driving Lights
2. Rear Rigid Reverse/Work lights
3. Front Winch In-Cab Controller Power
4. Rear Winch In-Cab Controller Power
5. Viair On Board Air
6. Bed Accessory Power

What are your plans?

Someone needs to make some bond style upfitter switch covers for things like missiles and oil slick deployments. I would love to have a set just to mess with people.

I am looking at the ZRoadz lights too. Which ones are you getting? I'm not sure about putting front facing lights on the rear cab mounted bracket.

Mine didn't come with upfitter switches. I think it should be standard especially in a tremor. If your gonna NOT put switches in a truck it should be a single cab 2 wheel drive. Just sayin

You can add them, think there are some youtube videos showing how.

One thing I would like to do is the 2wd low mod that disables the front axle engagement.

Do you need a switch for the winch???? My Warn set up on my Rubicon is not on a switch There is a switch on the winch itself plus the wireless remote. Probably a good idea but do you need it?

I'D be fine with just a switch on the winch and a wireless controller, but I didn't know if it came prewired to an upfitter switch already.

You don't need a switch for the winches unless you want one. I used two up-fitter switches to control the in-cab wired winch controllers I built - to prevent anyone/anything from activating the winches inadvertently. I used one for the front winch, and one for the rear, so I had the extra safety of not spooling or unspooling the wrong one if both had power.

Sometimes accessories like the winch/compressor like a higher idle to work at full load. Also, you can leave the switch on for cold weather/hot weather remote starts.
