    New Tow Vehicle

    We just traded in our 2005 Chevrolet Duramax, and got a 2019 Ford F-350 SRW 6.7L Power Stroke.
    You Ford owners, what do use the upfitter switches for? And, how do you wire them up? Never had a Ford before, so it is new to me.

    Re: New Tow Vehicle

    Bruce I have done a 2017 F350 and a 2020 F450.
    I'm sure it would be good to post everything on here but if you have any questions you can call PM me and call me..

    I use the up fitters for several things.

    ) Wilson phone booster/2 way radio.
    ) Air compressor
    ) Furion camera monitor
    ) RV bavkup lights with a truck back up light kill relay..
    This kills the truck backup lights so you don't get the glare off the front of the trailer when backing up at night..
    ) Tanno cover master switch.

    #1 - #4 are key on only.
    #1 - #6 can be key only or
    #5 & #6 can be made to be hot all the time.

    RoadJunkie. You are correct. That is a really good reference. The 2019 owners manual has incorrect info. It says the wires are in the panel on the passenger side near the floor. There are wires there but they are undersized and won’t be adequate plus are mislabeled. I use the switches to power my solenoid for my fuel transfer and for the auxiliary tank gauge. Another switch is used for the white wire relay for my airbags. Airbag compressor is wired directly to the battery. Be sure to add an inline fuse of the correct size for each accessory after hooking to the upfitter jumper.

    Looking at the 350 and 450 side by side, the 450 looks massive compared to the 350

    Your truck is absolutely beautiful! Those 450's just look so BadA$$ with those wide fender flares! Congrats! How close is the pearl white Ford color to the pearl white of your Landmark? Do they match ok? We have a '16 Landmark and my '19 GMC (white frost tri-coat) is a shade lighter then the pearl white Landmark paint.
