Those switches are awesome!!!! What amperage are they rated at? I actually think $85.00 is cheap for that setup, I bought some 50 amp carbon fiber switches and plates and they were $20 each.

Your lights should tell you their draw. 5 is a bit small, I think you'll be closer to 7.5-10amp protection.

well,being as they have a low and high mode like the low and high beam headlights on my truck, i was panning on wiring them together so they would both be on, since i plan on just using them off road or on empty two lanes. i spose i could wire in a switch some place so i could toggle the low and highs, but that would be a fair amount of extra work i think.
maybe ill start with a 10 amp.... lol

Little late to the thread but had an idea for your switch location if your up for a little more work. As long as you don't have a sunroof and all of the extra buttons up by your dome light, that piece makes for a good spot for about 3 small switches. Pretty well unnoticeable until you reach up there to flip them on. Mine have the leds in them and cast a cool blue light when they are on.
I like the mounts that you've got pictured, any progress on this?
