Upfitter Switch location

Does anyone have a photo of where the relay bracket bolts to in the cab? I would guess that being that I am installing them in an 03 that it will not directly bolt in place, however it would be nice to see where the planned location was. I thought I had seen a photo somewhere, I just can not seem to find it. Thanks for the help.

Re: Upfitter Switch location

the relay location is behind and above the glove box. Ill get a pic of one tonight i have a 99 and put everything in the factory place (relays do bolt straight up) but the switches i fabricated an overhead mount for those that puts it where an overhead console would be. I had to increase the length of the harness from the relays to the switches.

How about some pics of the whole set up. I know some guys with older SDs that would like the upfitter switches.

Re: Upfitter Switch location

I've read and seen a few posts on putting upfitters in pre 05 trucks, and looks stock. I've done the research to do it myself, just haven't done it yet.

Re: Upfitter Switch location

yea im in the middle of the upfitter switch mount. Ive done a couple of fiberglass mounts but am still trying to make something more copacetic. but as for the relays they mount right up to the cab in the same factory position above and behind the glove box same as the Post 05's I'll take some pictures and post up more tomorrow.

Re: Upfitter Switch location

Alright sooo im a little late on posting pictures... but heres a few of my install so far. I had a overhead panel constructed but evidently the fiberglass resin eats styrofoam... definitely not conducive to what i wanted... but in that screwup i started lookin to alternatives and this is an idea that i came up with today... i dont ever use the ashtray so it seems like a logical alternative to overhead... and i dont have to modify the wiring harness to make it reach all the way up overhead. Ill post some more pics up when i finish and whether or not it works. hope this helps.

Re: Upfitter Switch location

Thank you for the info for the relay location, I mounted mine and wired on Sunday. I racked my brain for weeks as to where I wanted to mount the switches and eventually settled on purchasing the dash piece from an 05. The bonus was it has the storage compartment as well. Again thanks for the info, it was a big time saver and made for a factory install. I think you have an excellent idea of where you are looking to mount yours, post a picture when you are done.

Re: Upfitter Switch location

Switchplate Fabricated


switches installed


Im not sure if theyre going to stay there.. Id like to make use of that pocket as well. and have thought about replacing the 05 center piece... did that bolt right up?? also how easy was wiring the relays?? where did you get your power from, what wires went to what etc??
