Thread title - as the main requirements for my build are getting checked off, I'm starting to look ahead to "Phase 2", and am curious as to what things people have wired up to the 4 AUX switches included in the factory tow package?

I'm often occupied, by many things, often at the same time
Wired two KC Hilites Rally 400 from the outsidebundle, Aux 4 (low amp, maybe 15, can't remember?). I used the interior wiring bundle (battery) for the Midland MXT400 (or whatever it's called). I'll likely wire a small light that points rearward at some point.

Aux 1 = Baja LP4s on front bumper
Aux 2 = TBD
Aux 3 = Baja Squadron ditch lights on lower A pillar
Aux 4 = Reserved for Rock lights likely
Aux 4 = Midlands MXT-575 GMRS radio
Winch hard wired to battery
ARB Twin hard wired to battery

On board air will be hard wired to battery and will use Kraken mounting solution w/ own switch (on order).

If I need additional switches in the future, I am considering this very clean solution...

I currently have a Warn winch solenoid on factory aux #3 and the amber backlights of my 4 amber bumper lights on aux #4. My ARB twin compressor is hooked to the hot with ignition wire in the aux bundle under the glove compartment, and I'm using their switch to run it. My inbound Midland MXT575 gmrs 2-way radio will go on aux #1 and a charging station for a pair of GXT1000VP4 2-way handhelds will go on aux #2.

All of my forward lighting, rock lights, and auxiliary reverse lights are on an aftermarket 8 switch controller. The last 2 switches are reserved for front and rear air locker solenoids. This switch panel is mounted to the bottom of my a-pillar grab handle, which is easier to use on the fly. Also, I wanted independent control over the forward lighting vs having it wired in an all or nothing fashion.

I have my ARB Dual Compressor wired directly to the battery and mounted under the passenger seat. Not sure why but the blue ARB toggle switch light is always on. Maybe I’ll revisit this season.

My GMRS and CB are both wired directly to the battery to avoid any risk of interference. I wrestled with the idea of tapping into my JLUR internal wiring and powering both off the “unswitched direct to battery” internal AUX wire but my buddies talked me out of it.

Code:
SWITCHED:
Aux 1 (F93 - 40A) Brown/pink stripe
Aux 2 (F92 - 40A) Green/pink stripe
Aux 3 (F103 - 15A) Pink/orange stripe
Aux 4 (F108 - 15A) Blue/pink stripe
,------------+------------,
| Aux 1 (40) | Aux 3 (15) |
+------------+------------+
| Aux 2 (40) | Aux 4 (15) |
'------------+------------'
UNSWITCHED:
Direct Battery (F72 - 10A) Red/white stripe
Ignition (F50 - 10A) Orange/pink stripe
