2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: Hittin' Switches
August 26, 2010
Just in front of the shifter on our 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor sit four rocker switches. They're pre-wired blanks with an orange light in the center but for now do nothing other than offer a satisfying click and a subtle orange light.
But that should change. I spent hours of my life in high school drilling into dashes and doors just to add more switches. Because, really, is one horn really enough?
Here's what I'd do:
Aux 1: Horn. A serious one. This wouldn't be a 'beep beep' horn, but one I'd want to leave on to really let the message sink in.
Aux 2: Roof lights. I can't get Back to the Future out of my brain. I want a big silly light bar on a black truck more than I want dinner tonight.
Aux 3: Winch.
Aux 4: Another horn. Or a permanent bolted-to-the-bed air compressor.
