The F-250, F-350 and F-450 are the same. I've got the F-350 and the 2 switches can be changed by moving the fuse you mentioned.

I've wired one to activate the Battery Charge Protect system. I'll probably use another for rear floods once I put the headache rack on. The others will probably never get used.

I saw your post about your F350's but the pictures are too small to make out anything. Does yours have the center console?

I reposted with bigger photos, but it looks like the moderators misunderstood my request or chose to keep the smaller ones.

Anyway, it's got the 40/20/40 seat, so no dedicated center console. Just the middle seat that folds down. It's an XL trim, vinyl seats and rubber floor. Helps with the kid and dog clean up. A lot.

If you need specifics, let me know and I can get that for you.

On an F-350 XL SCrew, it looks like the front seat choices are limited to a 40/20/40 split bench in either vinyl or cloth. But, I think Rich is thinking about a nicer truck than an XL and that's where things get more complicated. Move up to an XLT and the choices are 40/20/40 split bench or 40/console/40, both in cloth. Move up to a Lariat and the choices are 40/20/40 split bench or 40/console/40 both in either cloth or leather.

I've never tried it, but it looks like the center "20%" seat would be easily removable. Probably not hard to fit a Havis, etc. console in there.

Glad I stumbled across this one. I've been trying to plan something like this for my Silverado.

Pretty much what I did in my 2011 F-150. I had the 40/console/40 seat, so I removed the console, installed a floor plate from either Jotto or Havis, then attached a Jotto console to the floor plate. The outer seats are the same whether you get the 40/20/40 seat or the 40/console/40 seat--only the center section changes. And, it all just bolts in.
