Default Are the upfitter switches pre wired on new Raptors?

Going to help a friend that recently bought an 18 Raptor wire some fog lights and off road lighting on his truck. I know the Raptors have upfitter switches. I though I read somewhere that they also have those switches pre-wired to somewhere under the hood. I can't find the thread now. And don't have a Raptor myself to be able to look.

Just want to make sure I have everything I need ahead of time. If there are wires ready to go, where are they located under the hood. And are they color coded so I can tell which wires go to which switch?

Yes, they are pre-wired under the hood. There are two sets of wires on the passenger's firewall. Wires on the right of the large "plugs" are the hot wires.

Thank you. That's exactly what I needed. That'll make wiring them up pretty easy. Wish my truck had a couple of switches prewired like that.

Thanks, Nick. The lower grill bar I've ordered from you, can switch 3 take that? Is it enough amps? I have my fogs on switch 1 and 2.

Also, any idea if the colors on '19 are the same as '18?

Hey brother! Glad to see you over here as well.

You'll be good on AUX 3. Peak draw is 8.4A and AUX 3 is good for 10A.

The 19's are the same as the 18's. I helped my friend wire up his lights today. All the colors and the location were the same as what was listed above for the 18's. We hooked up some fog lights and off road drive lights today.

The wires were taped to one of the wiring bundles on the right side of the computer connections. Once I disconnected the computer, they were easy to see.
