    I have a 2014 platinum 4x4 Tundra. I don't have any blank switch spots. I want to add a switch for a winch and lights. Any ideas where i can add 2 more switches? They cant be added to the bottom right of the steering column cause I'm putting my break controller there with the custom cover. What other options do I have. Center console?

    I think it was @Spvrtan who put switches in the sunglass holder. Looked good

    In the portion of the dash that holds the two power ports and USB/AUX (below the climate controls). Seen a few mounted facing down in the upper edge of that section. Easy to access for installation. Also in the upper sunglass holder like Joon said.

    A little of this and a little of that.
    I added two here with the ability to put in another for my reverse lights, when I get them.

    I have the sPOD kit with mount for the '14+ Tundras..

    [​IMG]

    Switch-Pros makes a universal kit that takes up less space but I like the tactile feel of actual switches so I went with the sPOD because of its rockers. I'm probably going to eventually get another sPOD kit and mount the switch panel onto my dashboard top here..

    I would suggest looking into the Switch Pros, and now that I see it Bluebottle meantioned it above.

    The Switch Pros is nice because you don't have to run any relays, in line fuses, or have to buy any additional light harnesses. The unit is all solid state w/ 7 switches rated for 18 amps and 1 for 30 amps. If you need to run higher amperage off a smaller switch, you can micro relay it. It can be connected via Bluetooth to your phone and everything can be controlled from your phone. The only thing it pretty much can't handle is a winch. You can program stuff to be on/off, momentary, strobe, power only through ignition, power all the time, and you can do master switches such as hit 1 switch and turn 4 things on at once. They are really compact and save you money down the line.

    www.switchpros.com for more information that I haven't posted here. We run them in a lot of trucks here, so if you have any questions you can call the shop as well.

    Thanks for all the great ideas. Now I just gotta figure out how many switches I'm gonna need.

    G'day mate,

    Did you have any troubles removing the centre consol to wire everything up?
    Where did you get the switch mounting plates/holes from?

    For now, I ordered the factory panel thats used with the OEM brake controller. Then I made a nice little panel from aluminum.

    I hooked up a wireless controller for lights, from speedtech lights. Not too bad 6 button remote that is a little bigger than the key fob.

    I see that SDHQ is now offering a fitment that places the Switch-Pros kit in the coin holder next to the shift knob. That's a good option.

    I am using the Trigger switch. Wireless and can be put anywhere.
    2 - 30amp and 2 - 15 amp circuits

    http://www.rogue-offroad.com/product-p/2001.htm

    Also has an app to control from phone. Little less expensive than the spod or switch pro

    Charge ???? The wireless switches run on batteries - and the range is bluetooth range. I would guess the batteries last a year or so but super easy to install being wireless.

    That's what I meant, haha. Is the wiring unit itself analog (ie. like the older sPOD kits, individual fuses/relays) or digital (Switch-Pros)?

    It's been awesome. It looks almost stock and no one notices it till I point it out. The location is perfect for turning lights on and off fast while driving. I don't run stickers, I just know which number does what from memory.

    Did you have to drill a hole for the harness to plug into the back of it?
