Because of the way the window operates and latches, I don't think you can purchase just an actuator for it. It would be cool if you could thought.

You ever install it? I am doing the exact same thing and would be interested to see

Here's my light bar switch. I'll use it for more off-road light bars as I install them other than the one I have now. I picked up the Duramax brake controller "holder" to replace the credit card holder near the steering column. I also picked up a 1/4 inch thick piece of abs plastic and glued it with e6000 to the "holder." I just soldered all of the wires and sleeved it with braided sleeving. Hopefully replace the stock Rough Country switch in the next couple of days.

Installed in the truck today. I like it!! The center bottom switch is the power switch. The other 6 switches can be set as on/off or momentary. There is also labels that go in the center of each button.

Just another variation to share... That Feniex mini looks great and may have to change to that, however I already had the OTRATTW switches and parts, but finding a place to mount them within reach and without cutting big holes was the delay. I found some YouTube videos of making switch panels from ABS sheets and saw where you could bend the ABS with a heat gun. I bent a piece with 3-sides, cut and glued a top and bottom, angled the sides to match the angle of the USB/power socket panel, and mounted it to the bottom of the heated seats panel so it can be removed without visible scars. I also put a 6-pin quick connect in the wires going to the switches so it can be removed for easy access. It's deep enough for the switches and the terminal connector housings as well as the wiring loops joining the switches and it also brings the switches out for easier reach. I lose most of that storage hole but still have access to the USB and power outlets.

I would like to place my switches in the same place as Wolfman01 did, but the problem is I am leery about breaking the center console since I just got my truck. I have a tendency to snap stuff made of plastic. How did you get that center panel off to put the switches in Wolfman01? Thanks.

Team Helotes I see that you placed youe mini in the same place as Wolfman 01 placed his switches.. How did you get that small panel off of the console without breaking it?

Big_Bubba,

You need to remove the plastic panel that houses the heated seat switches above this recessed panel and then you will find that it is held in place by 2 screws. The panel above it is held on with snap clips and is very tight. In fact, one of the snap clips broke when I removed mine and I had to go get a replacement.

Tx phxdsrtrat for the info! I will be very careful as I am very familiar with breaking plastic clips.

If you are mindful, you'll find the panel that holds the seat heater switches pulls directly away from the center stack. The dealer did mine as part of the hookup for the sport bar lights. When I went back to hook up the second switch to the light bar in the brush guard, it easily came out. If you are leery, let the dealer remove that panel for you. The plastic panel my switches are mounted to is the one that is held on by two screws.

Thanks Wolfman01, I am planning to buy one of those plastic interior tool sets so that I don't damage anything.

I have a 2016 crew cab and I am adding footwell light front and rear, along with some underhood lighting. I was planning on mounting my switches in the center console between the usb slot and the power outlet. I wasn't overly pleased with this location because I had planned on keeping other items in that space. I took the side panels off the center console to get access to this area. Then I noticed a nice hollow area behind the panels. I mounted my 4 switches to the side panel and I like how well this worked out. Wiring the switches was very easy from there. I just need to tap into the fuse box in passenger side footwell (fuse F29). I took some pictures of the panel so others can see. There is plenty of room for additional switches if I decide to add others later.
