Default Moving Aux switches and buttons?
Hello!
I've been a constant forum lurker since before I had my raptor. I wanna know if anyone has completely relocated the aux switches and off-road mode buttons in order to put a normal f150 console (the one with the little storage container forward of the shifter) in their truck? I've been scouring the internet and all the rest of f150 forums seem to be putting the raptor mounts in theirs. I wanna do the opposite. I liked the crown offroad over head switches and then just mount into the shifter console to mount the buttons but I really wanna keep it cheap. Thanks for the help!

Your plan, and 'cheap' are gonna be mutually exclusive.

That is pretty much what I've figured... worth a shot though to see if anyone has rigged up anything. I'd rather do it right though.

You can relocate them to the trailer brake area or others have modified the business card holder and moved them there. They're both labor intensive and you'd need to extend the pigtails to reach those locations.

I mean if you really wanted to do it, I'd go with the sunglasses holder as a switch mount location and then if you're the DIY type it's really just gonna be wires and solder to extend them up there. You'll probably need a custom bracket too, but that's how I'd do it. I feel like it'd be really annoying putting those way up there though.

I've also seen aux switches mounted in the weird little pocket to the right of the climate controls. You could go that route.

4 more Aux. switches

You could do this mod and then eliminate the factory switches.
