I'm surprised no one is using remote switches. I installed a switch for my Rigid light bar in the card holder, but since it is such a pain in the butt to wire switches in the Canyon's cab, I went with a remote switch for an outlet in the bed. I ran an 8 gauge wire from the battery directly to a 20 amp remote-controlled switch in the bed that powers an outlet for the fridge. No wiring in the cab. The fridge is powered from either an ArkPak containing an Odyssey Deep-Cycle battery, or from the new outlet...which can also charge the ArkPak at the same time. The switch is controlled by a 2-button remote. When the fridge is plugged into the outlet, I can turn it on or off from inside the cab...and can also monitor the fridge temp from the cab. The switch is the little black box in the upper left of the photo below.

Still have to paint them and install the fuse box, but I'm using an aux switch kit for an 09 ford F350.

I really like the way that looks. You get that as a Kit? Or piece it together?

I had the switches but I bought a whole kit for the fuse box and relays.
I had to cut the bezel and mold it in.

that's a nice clean switch set.
good use of the space instead of that shallow pocket.

sweet find!

What did you do to cut up the card holder to put the rocker panel in?

I just used my Dremel with a cut off wheel for plastic. I filed and sanded it from there.

I didn't cut up the card holder panel. I bought the brake controller panel and cut that one up using a Dremel.

Are you able to turn that into a kit and/or willing to make a few more?

Honestly, probably not. Too much time that I don't have. I've done these on my breaks at work.

I used 3M 04240 semi rigid plastic repair from the back after tacking it in place with CA glue. I then used evercoat metal glaze filler. Sanded that down to 320 grit and used SEM product to finish it.
