Hey everyone- I just started to install a set of bright back up lights, I was thinking about putting them on a trailer plug with the reverse pin to activate them. Then a friend said I should check out some upfitter switches. So heres the question, Is the wiring already there or do you need the loom to go with it? My parts guy at the dealership wasn't sure, but he could get the switches for like $30.

Yup I did. The switches are seperate from the harness. I would recommend getting the kit from Your Premiere Source for Ford Truck Parts and Accessories that has the switches and harness and all. I got mine from the dealer and I think harness alone was almost $80 while the complete kit can be had for $9x or so.

Here is a good writeup on the install that I used when I did mine, http://www.superdutydiesel.com/wiki/tiki-read_article.php?articleId=13

Hope this helps ya. Once they are installed you can coonect the power wire for the lights directly to the switch, that's how I had mine.

Sounds good. If you have anymore questions with it post em up. Routing the harness was a little tricky but straight forward. For me it was easier to pull the lower dash but I didn't have the acess cubby down low to reach through. They are definetely a must to have :ford:
