Default I'd like some opinions about the Aux Switches
So I have had my new Raptor for about 6 months now (my last one was totaled sadly... hang up your phones kids) and the 4 AUX switches have been bothering me to no end. I can just let them sit there doing nothing but getting a free ride. So I was thinking about getting 2 light bars for behind the grill which will take care of two switches, but what about the other two? Possibly looking at an electric exhaust bypass? What Does the community think? What do you have o yours? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry if this is in the wrong place, feel free to relocate it or tell me how to do so.

There's tons of things you can do.

I have mine hooked up for the following:

Aux1: currently empty, awaiting bed light tower to hold 6 vision x 6.7" light cannons
Aux2: 30" bar mounted in SVC bumper
Aux3: 2 hood mounted vision x 4.5" cannons (potentially adding 2 more cannons lower bumper)
Aux4: rear bumper mounted flush mount lights for reverse/dust lights.

4 isn't enough. Getting 6 more installed

For me:
Aux 1 - 3 12" Whelens and actuator
Aux 2 - 30" & 40" behind the grill
Aux 3 - 30" on front bumper
Aux 4 - 2 Duallys under the rear bumper

New switches that will be installed:
Aux 5 - Hood cannons
Aux 6 - 2 Duallys in front
Aux 7 - 3 Cyclones in the rear window
Aux 8 - Radio (maybe)
Aux 9 - TBD
Aux 10 - TBD

The 20" light bar and Dually spot/floods seem to be a popular first mod for some....adds some bling to the front scowl

Sounds like someone might be jealous of others that have more....

Here's mine:

#1 Front Rigid Fog in Bumper
#2 Front Rigid Spot in Bumper
#3 Bed Lights
#4 40" Lighter Bar Behind Grill

New 6 switch set up coming as I will have 2 radius light bars up front in the new Rogue bumper, leaving me room for 2 hood cannons, 2 new rear bumper back up lights, 2 rear facing dust lights and and possibly a rear facing "asshole" light bar in the tailgate.

4 is not enough switches......

you cant use one of your aux switches to power an electric exhaust cutout because its an on/off switch. an exhaust cutout comes with a switch you have to mount. it works like the switches that operate your windows. if that makes any sense. press switch for a couple seconds to go open, press switch in the opposite direction for a couple seconds to go closed
