Power slider rear window switch in the little pocket between heated seat switches. Not really enough room for any other switch there so it worked out well.
Other future switches (aux lights, etc) will likely go on the "card holder" panel above the lights/4wd sources and be contura xiv switches.

That's a nice unit and the price is right also. Might have to bust out the credit card.

Switch came in Saturday. I will not be installing it for a few weeks, but here are a couple of photos. Looks like it will fail perfect where I want to put it. Not it is not mounted, I will drill a hole and run the wires where they can not be seen.

I like it. The programming you have control over is outstanding for a compact control. I only got the full sized 4200 for its bluetooth smart phone controls. I could hide the entire control head and use my tablet for control.

How did you get the power slider?? Was it an aftermarket set up?

I like the varied set-ups, in my case, I plan to create a false panel flush to the cubby hole in the lower centre stack.
I hate reaching through a hole to get to a switch. (I need switches for internal lights)
Ultimately, I would have my acc. exterior light switches on the centre console itself, just under the lid.
This way I can flip my switches without me changing my driving position, I just haven't checked if there is space or not.
Spring is around the corner, hate working with frozen finger tips trying to pry panels and feeding wire.

That is the whole window... what if you already have a sliding rear window, just want the power option?
