Wondering if anyone has installed a gang Rocker switch in a Hilux LN106 or 167 and where they did...
Decodedto buy this really nice gang switch from eBay to tidy up the dash and give me some USB power but struggling to find a space to install it...
Also I don't have an overhead console
Appreciate any ideas

It's no wonder to be honest mate, I'd be using seperate switches and do..;)

I have one of these over the back of the pajero.
Be careful with how much power you run through it.
The switches themselves are rated to 20amp a piece but add that together and that's 120amp being supplied via that one feed wire.
There is no way in hell that wire is rated for that sort of current.
I would say 30 at most, which means keeping each switch under 5amps each.
LED (strip) lights and maybe a fridge would be ok but if you need more power consider using the switched to trigger a relays instead.
Of course you can feed each switch on its own or in banks to push more power through it.

Very interesting!!! Appreciate the guidance...
I've been trying to work out how many amps a light bar would draw... All I can find is wayys....

to figure out the amps your light bar will draw, divide the wattage by 12(volts) . That will get you in the ball park.
Don't worry about the lumens and all that rubbish :D when you're working it out.
