Yeah that is for sure. When I added my driving lights, I had to mount the switch on the bottom of the dash, kinda down by the pedals, because there was no where else to put it! I know a lot of my buddies that I mud with have switches mounted down there as well.... just be careful you don't kick them! :
I put an old fashioned foot dimmer switch in my truck to turn my off-road lights on and off. Much faster than hunting for a switch on the dash in the dark.
(FWIW, the Ford switches work better than the GM's.)
I mounted mine in the dash piece that wraps under the steering wheel. I have installed both large toggle switches and the swicth that comes with hella lights. I mounted them on the left side were it sort of bulges out before it slopes back toward the pedals. this way they are up high enough that you wont kick them with your feet.
I drilled out a hole in the useless garage door opener plate on the overhead console, and put a two-way toggle switch on it, and left enough room for 2-3 more toggle switches. Turned out real well, plus I mounted an idiot light right behind it to let me know that the light switch is on, so as not to drain the battery.
if you're running a stick the plastic paneling that covers the base(and has cupholders w/99) makes a great place. keeps the wires under the carpet so people like me don't rip em out w/ my feet. i like the idea of the foot dimmer though
I have 4 toggle switches mounted in the knee panel, down low, on the right side. I had to cut out the foam backing to make room for them. You might be able to see them in one of pictures posted in "rides" (can't say for sure though, haven't checked)
Cool, I still need to get around to ordering one, but it is low on the prioriy list.
I also mounted a double pole/double throw/center off switch near the knee bolster on the left side of the steering wheel (in the dash part, not the removable part under the steering wheel, inline with the fuse panel). It controls my backup lights. One pole of one throw is for always on regardless of what gear I am in. The other throw is hooked up to the reverse circuit. The other pole of each throw is hooked up to a small LED so I can tell which mode it is in. The switch triggers the PIAA relay.
Anonymous, WHERE did yo get that bada$$ console at! I WANT one! I could go crazy with somehting like that! I have so many things to mount in my 2000, and I have nowhere to do it! I don't use the center as a seat, so I could definitely use one of those! PLEASE, please, please tell me where you got that!!!
