I just ran out of switches with the installation of the rock lights. Should I need more my plan is to direct-wire or use a manual under-hood switch for the winch and/or wire the A-pillar and Bumper lights together on a single 40 amp switch.

My aux switches currently control off road lights and an on board air compressor.

Air compressor? For the tires? I have a small 12v one I keep in the back, but I was thinking of buying a more powerful one for my iSUP. What to you use?

Yes, for the tires. If you go to [Banned Site] on youtube and look for the on board air compressor video I did the same install. Like in the video I have installed the mid-size ARB compressor. Works great.

I added some lights to the rear bumper so I can see when backing up. The LED package provides some great lighting up front, but the reverse lights are lacking. I wired to the aux switch because I don't need them to light up every time I back up, so no need to connect to the reverse light wiring. I only need them at night in unlit areas.

What lights are these and any pics of the camera at night with these on?

Can I ask what method you used to connect your winch to the aux switch? Brand? Something like this?

Stock lighting, as you can see, the brake lights provide more illumination than the reverse lights:

I've got two of those lamps mounted on the bumper. One on each side. They light up A LOT more.

I've got them aimed a little further toward the sides since taking this picture, because there was no point in overlapping them at the middle. Even poorly aimed they made a huge difference in visibility while backing up.

They are Nilight, which was just a cheap find on Amazon → Amazon Link
When I say cheap, I mean dirt cheap. They were only $17 (for 2 lamps), and now they're selling them for $13.55. They seem like pretty good quality, especially for the price and the reviews seem to mirror that opinion. They've got a 2 year warranty so they should last at least that long. At $7 per year, I'm okay with replacing them at that time if I need to, but since I don't use them every time I reverse they should easily last beyond the warranty.
