Curious, where did you mount the switch in the cab?

Installing my KCs as we speak and need ideas of where and how to mount the switch.

Thanks!

I used the switch wire for the aux in the center console. Just remove the trim picece (lifts up), then remove the screws securing the tray/pan and remove. Once the tray is removed, you'll have easy access to splice into the aux... I ran the wires down under the console and behind the dash. I used an existing metal mount for the ground and installed the KC switch on the right side of the foot well. All wiring is concealed and looks OEM...

No, sorry.. I meant do you have any pictures showing the location you mounted the KC switch?

Sorry for not being specific.

I recently installed an Aries Stealth Black Bull Bar (Part# ARI-B35-5005-3) on my '14 Sport. A simple "bolt-on" installation, however, you have to cut out two slots into the lower bumper cover... or you have the option to just remove it. I think it looks better on...

It is a heavy duty and well constructed bull bar. It has 3" stainless steel tubing with hi-gloss black powdercoat finish. Supposedly the brackets and hardware passed a 1000 hour salt spray test. It also has a brushed 304 stainless steel skid plate, which I painted matte black/clear coat to match my Fuel Wheels and Mopar Side Steps.

While I would never pull or push anything with this bull bar, it is VERY solid. It is attached to the frame with heavy duty brackets and hardware at 3 separate locations on each side. Essentially, it is attached similar to the OEM tow hooks (same fastening points).

I purchased the bull bar for the sole purpose of adding driving lights. I preferred it over a light bar. I like its low profile and it fits tightly against the bumper.

Lastly, I added KC 100w HiLIGHTS SlimLite Driving Lights (Part# KC-124). Very nice set-up for the money and it's basically "plug-and-play." I also painted the white "KC" letters on the covers black for a better match.

I can post some pics later at night with the lights on if anyone is interested.
That is a great looking set up, the whole combination works well together and the attention to detail shows. Did you find a good deal on the Aries, if so where? I would definitely would like to see the KC's at night from the front and the drivers perspective.

Thanks... I purchased it from Realtruck. I'll have to get a pic at night...
