Another question for you, where did you hook up the hot wire for the switch? Cigarrette lighter? I'm thinking thats what I want to do to make sure I only turn on the light bar when the truck is on. Otherwise, not really sure where to get power for the switch unless i go to the ignition switch which requires more work.
I didn't want to use anything for power that required me to access wires under the dash that can be difficult to get to. I ran my wire to the fuse box in the passenger side footwell. It is very easy to get to. Then I used an add a circuit fuse holder and connected it to fuse F29. It is only powered when the truck is on.

Perfect, Didnt realize there was another fuse box down there. I thought there was only one in the engine bay. That makes life much easier.
