Like in park on a hill or driving around your property, loading up stuff at night, or other times when you dont want the vehicle idling. I just had a 3/4" bright red led indicator light on the dash next to the switch so i wont forget they are on when driving down the road.


I hadn't thought about that. That would be nice to have the light on and get out of the truck without having to leave it in reverse.

This is a must do. Thanks.

my post may not help you, as I don't have much experience with these medium-duty trucks you are working with. I just know my 1/2 ton has it.

In a pinch I bet I probably could get it in the back. The back door is 7' wide. I'd have to find a way to get it up the 4' into the bed.


I'm hoping you're right about the fuse box. It would make it a lot easier on me. Only bitch is this thing is a Isuzu with a Chevy drive train. Who knows what's under the dash.
